We had an amazing trip from the start! He had us hooked on fish right away. He was very respectful and helpful!! We caught a ton of fish and maxed out at our limit of sheepshead. Then went to other locations and fished for trout and Reds. Caught some very nice fish to take home. We will most definitely book with him again!!! Thanks Walter Bode!!!

Had a blast. Left the pier at 630, limited out on trout by 8am. Moved on to target redfish and got 2 big ones. Second trip I’ve done with Bode and it won’t be the last.
