We had a great time! He put us on trout first thing. We ran out of bait, but not his fault. He worked hard to put us on red fish, but we just didn’t find them. My wife was thrilled at the whole experience and loved catching fish, even hard heads!

Walter was amazing. I had four boys and me on the trip. The two younger boys (10) were pretty high maintenance and he was so patient and kind to them. The two older boys were less hands-on. We had a great conversation, laughed a lot. He went above and beyond for us. We even got to meet his wife who was super responsive and helpful. When we return, we will definitely take another trip. A must do!

I booked this trip for my dad & brothers as a fathers day gift. There were some issues with guide availability for the weekend that we wanted to come but the girl who is in charge of that was super helpful in finding a trip that would work for us. By chance of luck, they got paired with Ron & in their words it was the best fishing trip any of them have ever been on. Ron was energetic, friendly, supportive & fun. He was not going to let them leave without catching the maximum amount of fish allowed. My dad & brothers are not the type to do reviews & they are not easily won over but they specifically made it a point to be sure i made a review to let everyone know how amazing Ron was. We will be sure to book with Ron for every fishing trip from here on out. Thank you Ron!!

The most enjoyable time ever! Our captain helped us out on the best fishing techniques. Will definitely do it again! Hopefully many more times. Thanks Captain Ron!

Captain Walter knew the spot, got us there early and we pulled in our limit. My kids caught their first fish ever and my wife caught two seagulls...thats a crazy story but Captain Walter knew exactly what to do. My favorite part was we were pulling trout up every time our hook hit the water and other guides started to notice and tried getting to where we were.

Had a great fishing trip with Captain Ron. Took my 2 girls 9 &10 they pulled in many trout.

Capt Bode was an all around good guy. Took my son and I on a fishing trip in June of 2021. Didn’t have a ton of luck (got 3 total - 2 keepers), but it’s called fishing - not killing! We had a good time. Capt Bode was patient with my son and had him fishing like a pro in no time. Hit a lot of spots and worked it hard. I wouldn’t hesitate to use him again if we make it back to SPI in the future.

Capt. Emilio and his crew were professional, attentive, and knowledgeable. My son and I were given options regarding what kind of fishing we wanted to do and they obliged. I give Capt Emilio a very high recommendation and would definitely fish with him again.
