I have been fishing the beautiful waters of south florida my entire life, with thousands of unforgettable hours on the water. Over the years i have learned the south east waters like the back of my hand, from peak seasonal times to target specific fish, to migratory patterns, as well as all other variations of fishing these waters. I would love the opportunity to help anyone become a better angler, let us show you a Downright Adventure!

Had an amazing day on the water with these guys. Great experience and caught some Mahi. These guys know their stuff and are willing to share their insights along the way. Can’t wait to get out with them again next time I’m in town. Thanks guys.

Good boat - 2017, good (young) guys that have ocean fished most of their lives but we were a victim of a cold front.  76 one day, 60 degrees the day we went out.  Felt like there was really nothing we could do to find them - caught two small, really small grouper, a couple bonita, and some grunts.  I’d use them again but regardless of who you choose - don’t force it unless you just want t boat ride.  Watch the weather!
