Great trip with Captain Shannon! He found the big Redfish this morning. The boat was clean and ready to go as scheduled. I took home a limit of Redfish and released many more. I recommend this guide to anyone looking for a great time fishing!

Cole and Anthony were excellent hosts and expert guides. We started off catching bait fish and then moved on to hunt for the big ones. We were successful and had a great time. The boat was the perfect size for 5 of us. I would definitely recommend Capt. Cole and will definitely charter with him in future.

We went out fishing with Captain Ricky. We had a great trip! Couldn’t have asked for a better day on the water! Captain Ricky is very knowledgeable and knows where the fish are. I would highly recommend booking your trip today!!

Captain Mike's the best. I question his taste in music, though--ha ha. Seriously, though, he put us on the fish and got us to our limit right before storm rolled in which was especially impressive considering the two fools he had to coach all morning. Follow Mike's instruction and you will catch fish! We even caught a random 4ft gar. Mike knows that bay like the back of his hand and he will get you on them.
