Brent was fantastic, he came prepared having got up early to get bait ahead of time. He clearly knows the region and has his secrets spots, so that we had a fantastic day even on a holiday weekend when every boat in the region was on the water.

Unbelievable trip.Capt.Brent got us into snook almost immediately. He was very friendly and knowledgeable. Besides catching a lot of fish we got a nice blackwater tour,seeing dolphin and some beautiful birds.
