About the Captain

I believe 90% of the experience, is within the guide. My job as a guide is to instruct. My passion is to teach. Nothing brings me greater joy than being able to share what I love with others. As a guide, there are a lot of variables, many things we cannot control - the weather, tides, availability of bait. But the few things I can, are the ones that really matter. I love people, dogs, kids, and fish. Not necessarily in that order. Talk to anyone that knows me, and your likely to find that I am very easy to get along with. I grew up in a small town, so naturally I do have the Southern Charm/Hospitality. I DID NOT take Rosetta Stone Southern Edition. Yes. I do talk funny. I grew up in a rural town in Kentucky with 3000 people, on the banks of the Cumberland River. Have been fishing since I could walk. My first experience on an airplane took me (and dropped me) for 4 months in the Alaskan bush, where i worked as a fly fishing guide. I spent 3 1/2 years in the Everglades as a guide.

We had a great day on the water with captain Josh. The fish were not cooperating the day of our trip but the weather was beautiful and captain Josh worked very hard to make our trip fun and interesting. I would highly recommend him and hope to fish with him in the next trip to fmb.

Bill it was a pleasure getting to take your family out for an outing in beautiful Sanibel and Captiva island area. I always wish, no matter how good or bad, the catching was better! Enjoy your stay and hope you guys enjoyed the Tripletail!

Josh, our guide was absolutely fantastic. 1I haven’t seen anyone work that hard in a long time. and you caught fish in just about and you caught fish in just about every location. A truly enjoyable half-day fishing trip.

What can I say. Captain Roberts is courteous and professional AND he is extremely knowledgeable. Not only does he know his fish, he also knows a lot about where he fishes. He can give you a lesson about the history and ecology of the backcountry waters as he puts you on the fish! My father-in-law and I had an amazing time and we will certainly go back fishing with Captain R
