Techniques
With hunting and fishing you really have to pay attention to what your going out to catch/bag. Red fishing is my passion but I will throw a line at anything in the water. We also offer scalloping trips when in season. I use the best in fishing equipment and tackle. Hunting on the other hand, the scenery is just as beautiful as the water. With our company we do duck hunts, gator hunts and turkey hunts all when in season. We either supply the guns and ammunition or you can bring your own.

Went fishing on Saturday, September 2, 2017

Capt. Leon was flexible with our schedule and was on time for our trip. The boat was clean and fully provisioned with tackle, bait and amenities. The layout of the boat was easy to walk around without tripping over each other and had plenty of seating.  Capt. Leon was very respectful of our every need and worked hard to educate and provide comfort.  Being an experienced angler myself, the Capt. was comfortable with providing me with minimal help while providing more personal attention to my buddy.
The only low rating we could possibly give Capt. Leon was on the quality of his filleting knife and skills, otherwise we had a most excellent experience and look forward to Fishing with him in the future.

Coming from France our initial idea was to go for fly fishing and Leon prepared good equipment and brought us in the right spot. Unfortunately it was not the right day and fish were not there.
So after 10.30 am we learnt how to fish seatrout in Florida and enjoyed the experience with multiple catch of trouts; two well over the size limit and also other various fishes which we don’t remember the names due to our limited english.
Thank you Leon !

I booked a fishing/scalloping combined trip. Capt. Leon is very knowledgeable of his surroundings while on the water. Not one time was I left in the dark on what I was catching or even doing. He baited our lines and even took the fish off the line for us. His equipment looked like he had taken care of his stuff. Even the snorkel gear looked well cleaned. I would and will book in the future and will tell everyone about him. Hands down best captain out on the water.
