I am a native Floridian that came from a family that fished and has been fishing ever since I could remember. I became a guide because I enjoy teaching people about fishing, and the ecosystem/estuary that makes up the area in which I fish. Also, I enjoy putting people onto fish and seeing the joy it brings them. Book now for a world class fishing experience.

Brian was awesome throughout the whole trip.  Captain was very knowledgeable regarding the best areas to fish in, and what lures/bait to use for best effect.  Brian was patient and provided much needed encouragement on the nuances of fishing, and casting techniques.  Boat and fishing gear were excellent, all adding to one of the best experiences I’ve had.  I would definitely recommend In the Loop to any anglers, and look forward to booking again in the future.  A great day on the water!

If you want fish, you HAVE to fish with In The Loop Fishing Charters. 
He is a relentless fisherman who is willing to do whatever it takes to find the fish.  Great guy!! I highly recommend fishing with this outfit.

The booking arrangements and interface with the, “intheloopcharters” guide before the trip was excellent. The guide was well prepared, and had an in depth knowledge of all the small islands and fishing waters affiliated with each of them.

We covered a lot of water and he did put us on a couple of “honey holes” where we caught a lot of seatrout including a very large “gator trout”. He also got us to some tailing redfish but they refused our offerings at that time.

The captain is very sociable and a pleasure to be with. Highly recommend for newcomer’s or old salts alike.
