What a trip… We started off the morning at the boat ramp discussing the POA (plan of attack) for what to go after while on the day-trip excursion. After loading up at the boat ramp we exited the harbor and the sun was yet to rise. However, the fun as well ...Read More as the sun would definitely be on the horizon. We jetted across the bay for a quick trip to the first stop where the sun was about rise and the fun was about to commence. As Captain Reyes (the man with the plan), settled the boat and set the anchor he began with teaching my daughter and myself the way to fish in the bay…and let me say as the sun was rising and the third cast was in the water…YUP, it was fish on baby! Captain Reyes had put my daughter on to her first Red Drum and it was a running…taking the drag when it could and my daughter was experiencing a good red fish fight. She was able to reel it in and was grinning ear to ear as she was amazed on how much fun it was catching such a fish that put up a run like that! After catching that Red Drum and a couple of Black Drums we jetted to another spot where we began to tie into some more blacks and a Sheepshead. Once the wind calmed down a bit more, Captain Reyes jetted us to another spot on the bay where it was Speckled Trout time. After a few trout we then jetted back to the first spot and no sooner than Captain Reyes noted the water he pointed and said cast right over there and be ready. Dang, he was spot on and it was my turn to land a Red Drum. Fighting that red fish was so much fun as it ran and put up a fight. We limited out on our blacks and reds as well as having some very nice trout and sheepshead. Needless to say, we are definitely hooked as well and will be back for an awesome day-trip with Captain Reyes as he knows his business and will also put YOU on the FISH! Thank you Captain Reyes, Faith & DJ appreciate all that you shared with us and wish you all the best of luck during the season. See ya soon!
Captain Reyes is a top notch guide and is very accommodating. I actually booked the trip on the wrong date by a week and he graciously offered to take us out anyway the day I thought I had booked for. My wife and I enjoyed the conversation with him ...Read More and he did his level best to put us on the fish even though no one was catching anything. I spoke to 4 other groups that had been out that day, and because of the front that had come through, no one was catching anything. I would recommend Capt. Reyes to anyone who is looking for a great inshore fishing experience.
Met Capt Reyes at boat launch, headed out right on time, fished deep for trout, caught a few keepers, the tried some reefs and limited out on drunk, caught a lot of redfish but too small, headed back over to deeper water and finished limited out on trout. I was ...Read More getting to hot so I told him don’t worry about the reds so I asked him to go in. He is a great guide and very friendly. I will use him again for sure🦈🦈
