Captain Barry has fished the local water for a long time and knows how important it is not just to out you on the fish, but to make your day fun, too. He has a great sense of humor and is very knowledgeable about the different fish species, techniques, and the local waters. He is also very good at transferring that knowledge onto his guests if they are interested in knowing more. So don't be shy, ask away and you will receive mind-blowing answers.

We had a great time with Capt. Barry on Sunday morning. We caught 28 fish - catfish, Jack Crevalle, Lady Fish and trout. We had hoped for some snook and redfish but the trip was still great without finding those.

John is an experienced Salt Water fisherman in New England and an excellent caster, I am not so Capt. Barry casted for me when I needed it as well as coached me on casting when I wanted to try it on my own. He is very knowledgeable about the all things fishing! It was great to fish with a lifelong SW Floridian.
