We went on a 5 hour trip with captain Matt. Once reaching the first location we quickly caught a limit of snappers. The captain was obviously knowledgeable of the waters we were fishing and had us on fish the whole trip. Not to mention an incredible king (42lbs). Great trip, highly recommended! He and his deck hand worked very hard for us, let him do the same for y’all!

Captain Matt was a terrific captain and really made sure we were able to catch fish. He was generous enough to reschedule quickly after it rained during our scheduled trip. The next morning we were able to catch a bunch of keeper fish and even see some wildlife like dolphins and turtles. Excellent trip and well worth the money
