Captain Brent put us on fish all day. He knew the backwaters like the back of his hand. I’m an avid fisherman, and was exhausted at the end of the day from fighting fish. Cant wait to go back.

Mike was a natural. He new what to as soon as you told him. Enjoyed every moment watching him smiling reeling in all his catches. A true angler

Had a good time with father and son. Snook bite was a little slow but had a good trout bite to finish out the trip

Captain Brent was very professional and accommodating. We caught a lot of trout and some cat fish. Some lady fish and pecker fish but no big game fish that we really wanted. This was just down to bad luck. Captain Brent was excellent and I really recommend a trip with him.
