Captain Whit has been fishing since he was a little boy. His dad took him along to fishing trips and this is where he learned how to handle a rod and reel in fish. He is a conscientious fisherman who has never taken more than the limit on any fish, on any day. This kind and warm captain will show you a good time on the water and provide expert tips on catching Redfish and Speckled Trout, which are also his favourite fish to catch.

very good trip, I am a senior citizen, Whit had a extra chair for me to sit in. Whit made sure that we were comfortable and caught many different kinds of fish.  We caught numerous trout , most just under the 15 inch range.  Will call Whit for the next trip.
