    Chris did a great job putting us on the fish. He toikbus to all the hot spots and gave us 4 hours of action packed fishing. Me and my son enjoyed fresh fish immediately after our trip. Great time!

    We had a great afternoon of fishing with Captain Wade in Tampa Bay; catching snook and redfish. Wade knows the bay well and he put us in the right spot for the conditions. We were originally scheduled for a Sunday morning trip but when the weather was not looking favorable, he offered to put in an extra long day and take us on Saturday afternoon. He works well with all skill levels and I highly recommend him for your next fishing trip!

    Ben R. with Wade O. of Tampa, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    Captain Wade was great! We were a bit late getting to the dock due to downtown traffic and we still went out on the water and had a good time. We caught some trout and sheepshead and so many lady fish! He was very informative on techniques and areas to fish. He kept the ride smooth and it was just a beautiful day on the water. So much wildlife out there, dolphins, ducks, pelicans and much more! Thank you for a great day on the water!

    Chris was an absolute blast to be with. He made our trip very special as I decided to propose to my fiancé on his boat. He also has a lot of insight of the fish in the area and even if it’s not the season for the fish he will do his best to try and catch what ever you are looking for. 10/10 would recommend and we will be booking another fishing trip with him again!
