The lunch consisted of cold cuts, rolls, egg and tuna salad, lettuce, tomato, red onion, Caesar salad, chips, pickles and cookies. The... More

Took a morning backwater fishing trip. Had a great time and caught a variety of fish. Scott was our guide. He was friendly and knowledgeable! We came home with several pounds of cleaned fish!

We had an unforgettable afternoon on a private fishing rental boat thanks to Captain Rodger, who combined a through knowledge of the area (and its best fishing spots) with great fishing coaching and a generous spirit. The area is spectacular, especially at sunset. This tour was also good value relative to other choices in the area -- a real plus.

We caught lots of fish on the three hour backcountry fishing tour. Captain Greg was very helpful - he had to work very hard to keep our hooks baited and take the fish off our hooks. We only caught a few keepers, but the variety of fish caught was great. Perfect for those of us who enjoy fishing, but haven't... More

I rented a boat, bought shrimp and fished a half day in the pass, around Capris, and the other side of the Marco bridge. My son and I worked hard and came back with one keeper. Lots and lots of catfish and other nuisance fish. The next day, Captain Rodger took us about four miles out. We were getting hits... More

Took the family which includes 10 year old kids for a 4 hour trip. Captain Dan was super with my petrified daughter and my energetic son. He was patient and helpful to all of us. We had a great time and caught a bunch of keeper fish and threw back a fair share of others that were too small or... More

We love the back country fishing here. I have been coming for many years. My husband and I have been out with Capt Greg a number of times and it is always awesome. They know the good spots for fishing and always provide a great trip. Also demonstrate fishing so good for beginners as well.

Everyone from where you check-in, to the staff on the boat, were very friendly and helpful. The food was good and the drinks were excellently poured. The cruise left on time and returned time. We even saw a couple of dolphins. The sunset on the water was amazing. We chose the Admiral's Dinner. This dinner had selections of carved prime... More

My son and I took a split charter with Captain Dan and the Lady Brett. He did a good job trying to put us on fish. If the fish weren't cooperating he was on the move. While not that many "keepers" were biting everyone caught plenty of smaller fish and we ended the day with fish for all. My son... More

Went with friends for the three hour backwater trip with Captain Rick. Great fun and we all caught. Best thing is he fillets the fish for you ready to eat. Will go again.
