About the Captain
Went fishing on May 29, 2014
Easily, I can say this trip with Capt. Oliver and Capt. Sean was the most fun and rewarding by far. Started the day out in the bay. First cast in and my sister caught 3ft black tip shark. That wasn’t the end for sure! From there we fished all day long and catching cobia, black tips, kingfish, mackerel, silver trout and bonnet heads. Just to make this trip outstanding, we caught a HUGE flounder, snook and reds
I highly recommend Capt. Oliver to anyone. You WILL catch literally a boatload of fish.

Capt. Oliver is one of the most knowledgeable fisherman and guide I have been around. Due to weather conditions we rescheduled our trip and was able to get on the water 4 days after. After a minutes we wir on fish and continued that way till the end of the fishing trip. It was great! The highlight of the trip and future once with Capt. Oliver are in the planning.
I recommend Capt. Oliver and his service. He’s the best!
