inshore and nearshore fishing. My name is capt. Jake and I will guarantee a memory. This is a guys or family day on the water, which includes a 4 hour service, 6 hour service, or 8 hour service. We go for all sorts of different types of fish , redfish, snook, trout, tarpon, cobia, grouper, snapper, shark, and many others! The process is simple, you book your trip, bring nothing but what you prefer to eat and drink and catch fish, after we come back in, clean your fish and send it home with you! I’ve been guiding for 2 years now and have many returning costumers from last year. Looking forward to meeting new people and either teaching you the skills and techniques of fishing or allowing you to show me what your made of with a fish hooked. Book now! Let’s get out there.

I scheduled the trip for 8 am and the Captain changed it to 9 am (he said he was having the boat detailed) no big deal right? WRONG!! The boat was not clean! This was a trip with three of my children and we spent about an hour and a half actually fishing out of a four hour trip. The rest of the time we trolled around and I watched the first mate casting away his rod and reel. We ended up with two small flounder and the Captain threw away more meat than he cut off. I was very disappointed to say the least. The Captain and first mate were cordial and assisted while we were actually fishing.

i apologize you did not enjoy the trip, i guess ill accept this bad review because i accepted your charter less then 24 hours in advance after 3 full trips, so the fishing boat was not completely clean after catching bait. 
I will look further into making sure my next costumers don’t feel that way. thanks for the review, and sorry i only let you fish an extra hour on the trip also.

Disappointing Day only catching three fish…conditions were tough however. as there was low tide, full moon, and a cold front came in…but a couple of suggestions…the guide must have his boat clean, all tackle on board when he picks up his clients, that was not the case…in addition, even in conditions that we experienced, the guide needs a game plan…to many times he is wondering out loud , where do I go next, and the flat water and intercoastal is an incredilbly large fishery… would also think that he might consider changing tactics, throwing white bait all day wasnt working….nice enough fellow but not a good experience, seemd like he was more worried about making his 4:00pm appointment than anythng else…the clients on your boat dont care about your other appointments…finally he had issues with his electronics and it was a known problem that he had prior to picking us up…talkign out load about the issues doesnt createa lot of confidence in your customers…
