    Captain Jaime was an off the chart tour guide...highly recommended. He was determined to find fish and we did! He was patient with my 10 year old daughter and used teachable moments with my 13 year old son. He was knowledge about the area and very kind. Easy conversation and engaged us all on the trip. Clean boat, plenty of bait and water.

  • ★★★★★
    Reuben was a very nice guy, but his view of guiding clients needs to change, l guess he fishes only go reds and specks. We only fished shipping channels with croakers on bottom. We caught a few specks, no redfish and spent most of the time cleaning seaweed off line. I mentioned to him I wanted to catch reds and mangrove snapper in the beginning. The only bait we had was croaker and I have been fishing the island many years and several other guides and we always caught a lot of the snapper, specks and redfish. He may be a good fisherman but having clients catch a lot of fish is the most important thing or at least trying, we did not, used only one type of bait, one location just different parts of it spaced out a little. I would have rather traveled 10 more miles and caught no more fish than staying in the same place catching gafftops and few specs mixed in, boring morning and in his defense we would have had a few more keepers maybe 4 or 5 if they had not raised length limit from 15 to 17”. We wound up the day with 3 keeper trout out of group of 4 on boat. Should have paid more attention to other review. Sorry will not.be using this service again

    Just retuned from our trip with Captain Ruben and it was excellent. Ruben went the extra mile all morning to make sure my wife and kids all had a great experience. Ruben was a wonderful guide and made sure we were always set with bait and tips for how to catch the big fish. Of all the captains I have had, he was far and away the most patient and informative.
