Look, boat, gear and captain were great. The water however was not. I’m from Wisconsin having never been to the ocean I had a certain expectation of water quality which was not the case in the Ft Myers area. Instead of seeing turquoise blue water we found we were looking into was what I can only describe as looking into a giant coffee pot. Water so brown I thought I was back in Wisconsin on the local lakes. We originally wanted to fish for tarpon but the captain called prior and suggested shark instead due to the quality of the water and tarpon were not biting. We hooked up on two large sharks that broke the lines. The power of a fish that big is AWESOME!!!!! The captain did everything he could to get us a shark to the boat, but in fishing nothing is certain. I would definitely book another charter with Captain Brian. I would for sure call ahead to check on the water conditions before booking next time.

Constantly caught fish the entire time.  I don’t think 5 mins went by that one of the 3 of us weren’t reeling one in.  We caught 35 fish between us.

Capt’n Brian paid great attention to our 9 year old daughter and helped her setting her hook.

My wife was most excited about her 22” trout!

We would definitely use Capt’n Brian and Changes in Lattitude again!

My wife, 2 kids (11 & 8) and I had a 3 hour morning charter w/Captain Brian.  Though his own boat was in the shop he made arrangements to use a friend’s boat in lieu of canceling our charter.  We couldn’t have asked for a better morning.  Brian was very patient with the kids and had us on fish over the entire charter period. With having the 4 adults and 2 kids on the 19’ center console, Brian did a great job of keeping everyone and their lines away from each other and had everyone with baited lines in the water.  I would most certainly recommend Captain Brian and Changes in Latitude Charters to anyone looking for a day of offshore fishing.  I will also charter with him again, if I am ever back in the area of Cape Coral.

I booked a half day trip with Captain Brian for myself and my 10-year-old son. We had an absolutely fabulous time. Captain Brian had us on the fish instantly and we had constant action all day. He was great with my son and we were able to bring home 7 sea trout keepers. We can’t wait to come back to Florida and go back out. I would highly recommend Captain Brian.

What a trip!  Capt. Brian put us right on top of the sea trout that we were after.  Over the 6 hours between the two of us fishing we estimated about 100 fish reeled in.  Out of that number we kept four and ate them that night.  Went after the sea trout but ended up reeling in some catfish, puffers, and hooking a couple cobia that we were not able to get completely in.  Overall A+ on the action, captain, and time with dad.  A most certain return trip next year.

My wife and I recently took a half-day trip with captain Brian. Our first casts were a double hook-up with keeper trout.  We pretty much kept busy catching trout over the grass flats, and had a great time!  It was obvious that the guide knew the water like the back of his hand.
The tide was very low which prevented us from going up into the small waterways after redfish, and that was a disappointment….but not the captain’s fault.  He tried his best to get the boat in skinny water, even jumping over the side and pushing the boat himself…but no avail.  I would definitely use him again, and also give him a high recommendation.

Brian is very knowledgeable, friendly, and patient. He tried multiple spots to catch fish. The tide was low and made fishing difficult for most of the morning. We did catch a shark early which was a lot of fun. We started catching more fish late in the trip. Just not ones we could keep. He kept us out a little longer than scheduled which was great. All in all we had a great time and did catch multiple types of fish. I would definitely recommend him for future charters.

We arrived early at the boat dock and Captain Brian David was already there waiting for us. A short boat ride and we were at first spot catching fish, or trying to! Our target were redfish,  Brian patiently explained how differently redfish were when it came to setting the hook. My son was the first to catch a redfish. Once again Brian explained how to land this fantastic fish. We caught a variety of fish, Brian knew the species most of the time before they were in the boat. Overall a great morning fishing. Dinner that night consisted of redfish and snapper. We will be back.

I can remove an item from my bucket list after going out with Capt. Brian and I caught my first tarpon.  From hook set to release, the fight took about an hour. Capt. Brian expertly guided the boat while the fight was on, which became really important as the big fish kept trying to get under the boat.  His instructions and even words of encouragement were instrumental in this novices success.

Captain Brian is the absolute best! He is VERY knowledgeable in Fishing and where to get the fish…Keepers! Never have we gone fishing with his expertise without catching keeper size fish!
And Ladies…you do not have to worry about baiting your own fish if you are squeamish with regards to that. He baits, cast and gets the fish off the hook for you. He is a tremendous instructor on how to get that fish! The Plus side is that he is also a very patient person.
Very enjoyable days out there on the water!
Do yourself a favor and book a charter with him.

Took my granddaughter and her boyfriend, here on Spring break. They had never fished salt walter, and Captain Brian quickly got them up to speed with speckled trout on ice within 30 minutes of leaving the dock.  Her boyfriend brought a 50lb black tip shark to the boat, while using light weight trout tackle with 15lb test. The captain skillfully maneuvered the boat through the flats to chase the fish down.  Finished the trip with some nice Reds.

Captain Brian provides a first rate Charter and good with kids. This was our last full day at Ft. Myers and I just wanted the boys to catch fish. And Catch Fish We Did. Snook-Trout-Amber Jack-Bonnet Head-Snapper While trying to finish with catching Red Fish we were overrun with dolphins that my youngest was amazed to see within 20ft of boat. Thank you Captain Brian for an awesome trip and keeping my boys very busy for four hours!

We use to go on the big charters with the large group of people and never really caught any fish. We decided to try a small charter. What a great time we had. We caught about 50 fish, unfortunately not all were at legal limit; but still fun to catch. Captain Brian was the greatest. He baited and cast all our lines, showed proper techniques for reeling in and was an all around fun guy to be around. He didn’t waste time if the fish were biting and moved the boat around for fishing quite a bit. My daughter and I are going to re-book this charter this summer and do it again. It was well worth the cost. As you can see by our catch we had plenty of trout to eat.The only thing I did not like about the boat is the seating needs to be cushioned. I have a balance problem so I have to sit.That really is my only complaint. As I stated earlier, we had a great time and are definitely doing this charter again.
