Captain Graham put us on the fish, and we had a wonderful time on the water.

Great day with a great guide. Graham worked hard to find the fish and gave us a wonderful tour of the salt marshes.

Chad S.


Had an awesome time. Learned a lot about red fish. Hands down the guy to go with.

Catherine H.


Wonderful experience with Captain Cotter. He was able to put us on fish in very difficult and windy conditions. He gave great advice and communicated well while guiding. We will definitely return for another trip!

Chad C.


Very skilled professional guide. He put me on several schools of big Redfish. Landed several with a 26 and 28 incher! If you are looking for a trip in shallow water with artificial on light tackle or by fly fishing…. this is your guy! Fantastic experience!
