Went fishing on Wednesday, December 28, 2016

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.

Can’t say enough about our day with Captain Brian! Boat, rigs, bait, coolers all ready and waiting for a great day. Fish on within 5 minutes… Captain Brian by far the best part of the day. Just book and you’ll see ! We had a terrific day with you, Brian. Thanks so much!

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.

Took my son fishing.  Neither of us has much experience.  Captain Brian was great.  He got us on good fishing in no time and taught us how to catch them.  Very friendly, very knowledgeable.  I would definitely recommend Changes in Latitude Charters.

Our first Tarpon fishing ever. We jumped a couple but didn’t get any to the boat. Next time we will book two days.
Captain seems experienced and is easy to talk with. Would probably choose him again.
Overall a good day :-)

Brian is a great captain. He knows the area very well and had us on fish all day long. Supplied everything and assisted us whenever necessary. Captain is very friendly. It was like fishing with one of my buddies. Will be fishing with Brian every time we come down from NY

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.

A great afternoon of fishing with a very knowledgeable and helpful guide.  A very stable and spacious boat with great fishing equipment.  Captain Brian did everything to ensure that our afternoon was fun with lots of fish.  He certainly knows the water, and had lots of interesting and helpful suggestions.  I would very highly recommend Captain Brian to both novice and experienced fishermen.

Thanks for the review guys…it was a pleasure having you on board…when your hunting trophy redfish it’s not realistic to find a lot…if you find a couple in 4 hours it’s a win…the boys did a great job fighting those big reds…

Captain Brian gave us a great day on the water. He knew the local waters well and is very experienced. My 9 y/o grandson was with us and he made certain that he had fun and learned a lot as well. He is still talking about his trip. I would recommend Captain Brian for anyone wanting to fish the shallows off of Pine Island.

We had a great trip with Captain Brian and he was incredibly focused on making sure we caught fish. His knowledge of the fishing area was amazing and he was so awesome in helping us catch some great fish. I would highly recommend him to anyone and look forward to seeing him our next trip. Oh….and we also caught a 30” Red that weighed about 20lbs. What a trophy.

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!

I would recommend to anyone.

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.

The captain, Brian, did a great job communicating with me prior to the trip.  He also was very willing to teach a couple amateurs the best way to catch the fish we were targeting. Overall a great experience for my son and I.
