My first time saltwater fishing. Great guide and we sure caught the fish. I highly recommend Captain Ponytail for your fishing trip. He was very knowledgeable of the waters and took us right to where the fish were.

We had an amazing time Red Fishing with Captain Rod! He did a wonderful job helping our seven year old land his first Red Fish. We would highly recommend anyone to go on this trip. A great memory made for our family!
