    Adrian was just awesome! He kept us up to date on weather and was flexible with date/time to make sure we went out at the best time. He got there early to make sure we were all set with plenty of bait and extra rods and reels ready to go. He even had an extra hat and sunglasses for our 16 yo who forgot his. He knew the best fishing spots and locations at each spot. He could cast within inches of his intended target, was very knowledgeable about the fish, and helped us release the sting ray and gar we accidentally caught. Very pleasant, hard working and very experienced! You can’t go wrong with Adrian!

    Perfect. Great weather and Brent took advantage of it. Took us to multiple spots to try to find the fish until he found one that was successful. Brent worked very well with our kids...11 and 13 year old boys. He was good at teaching them tips and was eager and fun when action was happening!! He fit right in with our family and was a great guide and leader! The boat rides were fun and he went out of his way to show my son's the jellyball and anything else outside of standard fishing that came up. Loved it!!
