If you’ve never caught a Marlin before, today is the day to check it off your bucket list! This trip is for the more experienced anglers who enjoy the thrill of catching those trophy-sized billfish, and there's no better guide to lead you on this excursion than Captain Matthew! You’ll travel between 40-65 miles off the Florida coast in search of Blue Marlin and White Marlin as well as Sailfish. You might also get bites from Wahoo and Dorado (Mahi Mahi) along the way. For these trips, Captain Matthew uses a 42 ft Buddy Davis sportfishing boat. It has ample space for your group (6 anglers max) to have a five-star fishing experience. The boat cruises a hair under 30 knots thanks to her Twin Cummins QSM-11 engines which kick out well over a combined 1,200 HP. The list of features aboard this beauty can be fairly summed up as “everything.” Inside, you will find a full head (restroom), galley (lounge), and cabins with bunk beds, all blissfully air-conditioned. Up on deck, you have outriggers, downriggers, tuna tubes, live wells, a fighting chair, and all the rods, reels, and tackle you’ll need to have a productive day on the water. Captain Matthew will provide all bait and fishing licenses as well. Get ready for a monster day on the water with Captain Matthew! Read More

    captain Marvin worked hard for us fishing was rough with conditions of the day would book again . only thing was when paying the bill I was surprised to find out that my $138.00 deposit and 35.00 taxes was not part of the total trip price quoted. the final price with deposit and taxes came out to be $863.00 not $690.00 and that's what I paid . plus including tip of $120.00 witch I felt was deserved Not sure why this came out this way but I found this misleading quoted $690.00 total price paid $863.00 plus tip I was told that that's the way it works at captain experience . not the way I was use to

    Captain Trey was awesome. The wind was high, water was rough and bite was slow but Trey worked very hard to find fish. We only caught 1 redfish but it was not from a lack of trying. He talked and cut jokes with the kids and made the day fun. He kept “Bocephus” rocking the radio too. I will definitely book with Trey next time we’re in town.

    We had Brandon as our Captain and he was great. we probably covered 80 miles looking for Tarpon and found 5 schools but we couldnt get them to bite. We did hook a couple of different fish in a school but they got off. Our captain did everything he could and was none stop looking to try and get us on fish. I would for sure go back out and try again. Thanks for experience and hope to see you again sometime in the future.

    Great trip! Brandon was fantastic! Very knowledgeable and patient with the 2 teens I had with me. I would recommend for both beginners and experienced anglers.

    Captain Jimmy was awesome! The weather was not co-operating with us, but the Captain did everything that he could to get us on fish. we did catch a few - they just we not big enough to keep (spotted trout were 13" - 14") I think the Captain was more upset about us not catching fish than we were. Thank you Captain Jimmy!

    Captain Jimmy is a gentleman and a scholar! I had one of the best days on the water. This was my first time salt water fishing and he got me hooked 🪝!!

    We had a great time with Nick. I love when a guide is so determined to get you on the fish that they’re almost stressed when they’re not biting. Nick refused to allow the fish to hide. He busted his butt to get everyone to their red snapper limit and we even ended up fishing a bit over the time we had allotted to make sure we had our best shot. We had a blast, and I would definitely recommend Nick. We’re going home with a cooler full of snapper, so that’s a win!
