Can’t really put into words the great experience we had with captain Hunter. His vast knowledge of the area and the targeted species was obvious within a few minutes after we began to fish. We limited out quite early and were able to change gears and go after some sharks, which my kids loved. But the way he was with the kids was fun to watch. You could tell he enjoyed teaching young people the sport he loves. I would highly recommend him to anyone from novice to experienced angler. I know we’ll be back!!

Very friendly and knowledgeable. Had great time reached my limits on targeted fish. Has a very safe boat that is filled with foam so will not sink. Plan on using him for my next trip.

I was looking for a guide who was kid and familey friendly and I found that in Capt Earnie. Not only did we limit out, but he made sure to tailor the trip to accommodate my family which I greatly appreciated. If your looking for a great guide you should look no further than him.

Ernie is an avid fisherman.  Very knowledgeable about the fish, the waters, what it takes to get them to bite. Although we did not catch our limit that day, Ernie had us use all different sorts of bait from piggies, crockers,(?), voodoo shrimp. dead shrimp, even cut up live bait!  Great day—great fun!  Would definitely
recommend Ernie to anyone looking for a great time and excellent fishing experience!  Afterwards we went to DOC’s across the street where they cooked the redfish for me.  Best eating fish ever!!  Excellent place to eat as well.
