Tarpon fishing off Anna Maria Island with Capt Matt last Saturday was a blast. Excellent captain, a true professional, and fun to fish with. My boys caught 2 beautiful Tarpon in tough windy conditions.

I have fished with Captain Matt a few times now and each time has been great. He knows he area extremely well and if something is not hitting then he's got several places to take you. If you want to catch fish then book him!
