My son and I had a great time white these two. I lost a fish due to inexperience with the tarpon. My son missed a couple also. I will be going again.  Thank you both.

I had the opportunity to take a trip out bowfishing with Capt. Andrew and Mallory Herzog last October. They were such cool people, knowledgeable in their craft, and passionate about what they do.

I knew they were the ones to help me break my tarpon jinx. Done & done…. mostly because the Herzog’s called an audible and took us out for an extra evening when they knew conditions would be optimum. We hooked up four tarpon in a matter of minutes and I managed to “lay hands” on the first silver king of my life.

What a thrill! Following trips out were in less-than-optimum conditions… a screaming South Florida wind. I’m a fishing guide myself. I know one thing the guide can never control is the weather. You can only work hard to make the best of a tough situation.

I absolutely guarantee the Herzog’s will do that. We hooked up five more tarpon but none chose to visit us at the boat. That’s tarpon fishing. Success is measured in hook-ups, not landed fish. Our trip with the Herzogs was a grand success. Hopefully there are more in my future.

In my line of work, you fish will all kinds of people. I can truly say the Fleming family was a blast to fish with. They were vacationing here for the holiday weekend. We had a trip set up… Read Full Report →
