I have a 13 yo non fisher and a 16 yo fisher.  Rob made sure that there was action and lots of fish.  Additionally, he found out the non fisher loved manatees and took us on a side trip to see a group of them!  My 13 yo was in heaven!  We saw about 10!
Caught so many sea trout (and a few catfish).
Rob taught my 13 yo how to cast and how to put bait on the hook!  He is a great guide and we had a wonderful time.
