    What awesome trip!!Mike is one of the best guides I have fished with! So helpful and knowledgeable! I can not go wrong fishing with him!

    We had the best time with Captain David! He was so nice and fun to fish with. I had never saltwater fished and he was very patient with me. She showed me how to bait the hook and did it for me until I was comfortable doing it myself. No judgement. He was an all around good guy! Took us to several spots and put us in fish every spot. We caught black drum, croakers and red drum. He took me to his Hail Mary spot ( shhh it’s a secret). And I caught a 15 pound Red Drum. He helped me step by step land it into the boat. It was so much fun and he was as excited as I was. We saw a mama and her baby dolphin and he took me as close as he could to them so I could get some pictures because he knew I was excited to see them. On the way back to the pier he told us some history and info about the things we were seeing. I will definitely book with Captain David next time we go down there.

    Richard was an awesome guide - he had us on redfish the entire time despite it being overcast and windy. He’s also incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. He thoughtfully answered all of our questions and offered clear casting instruction throughout the day. Will definitely be back to fish with him in the summer.
