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.

My first time tarpon fishing on the fly in the Pine Island area.  Captain Bartholomew is a patient, friendly, hard working Guide that is determined to put you in the best position possible to wrangle your trophy. A local guy with a lot of experience is what you need to get tarpon in the boat.  Look no further…I myself will be back for years to come.  We spent the day tracking the Silver King, and I get to go home proud of the fish we not only hooked, but landed in the boat.  Thanks For the memories and professionalism!!!

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!
