First of all, Matt is an awesome Captain. We took two different trips in 2016. Through both trips we caught Blackfin Tuna, Shark, Red fish, Flounder and a gymormous Black Drum.

Captain Matt has a nice boat, good equipment, is very polite and professional, and will put you on the fish.  All we had to do was bring food and drink.

I booked an all day trip with captain Matt in April. The day we arrived was the day after a large storm and cold front. We were to go out the next day and I asked if we could wait for better conditions. So Matt adjusted his schedule to a more suitable day two days later. When I arrived at the launch site I found him ready to go, all lines prepped and bait ready. the boat was clean and comfortable. Because it was still very windy he took us Bay fishing. We caught a number of sheepshead near a bridge and then went to a secluded cove where we caught lots of red fish. He was very professional and knowledgeable and considering the conditions I felt he did an excellent job. I recommended him to family and friends and their experience was the same. I will fish with him again this year, a great experience overall for my first ocean fishing trip. Unfortunately I am unable to download the pictures from my phone. new phone after old one died.

Hi Larry! Thanks for the review. Yes, I think it’s important to have “options” I had a great time with your crew. Conditions weren’t best but we still knocked it out of the park!  Hated to hear that your phone went belly up, well I have a small token for you back. I still have a picture of you with this giant sheepshead!! Enjoy! Looking forward to fishing with you again soon!!

Since becoming somewhat of a “regular” with Midbay Charters, I can attest to the efficiency and attention to detail that Captain Matt and his deck hand puts into each and every trip I’ve booked. I retired here so I could fish and, believe me, Captain Matt has helped me to far exceed my expectations concerning retirement. The number of species we have caught together has amazed me. Anyone out there considering which charter to hire…Mid-Bay Charters is the one.

What a GREAT day! I really wanted some flounder and a Mangrove or two (with a redfish in the back of my mind) and we boated all three. As a bonus, we also landed a few hardy bluefish and a Spanish mackerel. Capt Matt even gave us a little complimentary extra time on the water to make sure we all had a fantastic experience (which we did!) Capt Matt will most surely be my first choice for another fishing excursion.
