Thank you John,
Hope to see you back soon.

Captain Travis is a great guy who went out of his way to ensure that my wife and I had a thoroughly enjoyable day fishing the waters off Boca Grande Florida. Once the fish stopped bitting in one location he would move to another thus enabling us to catch two good sized Redfish and several other fine fish that were put back due to their size or being out of season. Travis is obviously very knowledgeable and passionate about his craft and passed on many useful tips. Many thanks Travis we will definitely be back.

Travis was perfect and went above and beyond on a tough day of fishing due to previous weather. He tried several baits, fishing techniques and locations to give us a full experience and many species of fish caught.

It was a beautiful day and we met the captain on his boat right at 9am. He was ready with bait he had caught early. We headed straight to the tarpon area but after seeing none for two hours we moved on to where he had been catching Grouper. After an hour and nothing we moved to a snook / redfish area where we caught one small snook. One more area produced three small catfish and we called it a day at 3pm, Captain Travis was friendly and answered my constant questions so in spite of no fish I had an enjoyable excursion.
