We booked our trip with Matt as we wanted to go on trip where it was just the 4 of us and we had a great time.  We have two boys 14 and 18 yrs old and our 14 yr old was a little sea sick and Matt took great care of him too.  We had a ball and would recommend and definitely go out with him again.

I booked for half a day charter with Matt and it was fantastic. He took us to some great fishing spots. He was very knowledgeable about the whole area. I had a ball and I will recommend him to everyone I know.
