Beautiful day, water was a little rough, we didn’t catch but a few fish. All in all it was a good trip, got to see some dolphins also.

Captain Tim is a fantastic guide and will put you on fish. He knows where to go and how to get you to get the fish on the boat. Had a wonderful time and will definitely be going with him again in the future

"JUST IN TIME" Justin took our trip on short notice after weather washed us out. He worked hard to put us on fish. Great trip Justin. Thanks!

This was without a doubt the best fishing trip I have been on. Justin was the best captain because he went well above and beyond anything he had to do to give us an incredible experience. I got to fight a shark for over 45 minutes and he was there in every way to help. You can tell anyone who asks they need to go out with Captain Justin! I assure you that everyone I know will have his information and I will be back as soon as I can. Thanks Captain Justin for an amazing trip!

Our trip with Captain Rick and his first rate deckhand Logan was fantastic. They put us on multiple fish of different types and we tried different methods, some trolling, a lot of bottom fishing and some deep water with electric reels. We caught a lot of large triggerfish, three King mackerels and enough Mingo (vermillion) snapper that we had far too much fish to eat over the next two days. The boat was fantastic, offering the six of us more than enough space to spread out and all fish at once, and Logan was knowledgeable and efficient at everything. I really enjoyed catching a small shark and we had a larger one steal some of our fish to add a little excitement. Near the end of the day we had a large amberjack up to the boat but unfortunately he got off. We played with a few barracuda as well, caught a few snapper and small groupers that we couldn't keep and in between spots, we could chat and I enjoyed learning about the local waters and the trade. I personally caught 22 fish and my son got 21 so we were busy. The weather was near perfect and Rick adeptly steered us around a small storm, where we got to see a waterspout. I would highly recommend Gulf Bay - we had a blast and really enjoyed getting to learn from a couple of true professionals. Thank you Captain Rick, thank you Logan!
