Captain Matt gave us an excellent fishing experience. He has 34 years of guiding fishing trips and it showed. He knew exactly where to go to land some beautiful fish. It was a very successful day with a superb guide. We’ll be reaching out for another excursion soon!

This trip was awesome! After he caught bait for our trip he was right on the fish. Plenty of fish to catch w/ his expertise. He catered to my wife to bait her hook and take her fish off. He was fun to talk with and very informative on the fish life in the area. We will definitely be back to fish again!
