Best guided fishing trip we have had. Gary made the experience fun and educational. My sons raves about the entire experience from catching our own Croakers as live bait to reeling in several large spotted trout. Thanks Gary for a great day of fishing!

Connor wanted to catch some fish for his birthday and did we ever!  Capt. Gary put us on some of the biggest speckled trout we’ve ever seen. We even caught a Mangrove Snapper!!!  All was good and we will come back again!

This was our first time charter fishing and wow what an experience! Capt Gary made you feel comfortable and tried hard to take you to all the spots that were good to make sure you caught a fish. We really enjoyed our time fishing with him. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to have a great day fishing with an experienced captain. We can’t wait for the next time to go fishing offshore with Capt Gary, he is truly AWESOME!
