Background
Captain Scott Green owns and operates Rodbender Fishing Charters in Sarasota Florida. He grew up in Iowa and fished many years in Canada with his father and twin brother.  When he arrived in Sarasota in December of 1982, he started fishing Sarasota bay.  As he fished with his friends and neighbors they told him he should become a professional fishing guide.  Well he did just that.  The last 34 years Captain Scott has had the best fishing of his life in the Sarasota Bay and the Gulf of Mexico area.  Now he loves showing visitors the thrill of saltwater fishing.  Captain Scott loves to have kids on the boat; he always has fun when the kids are having fun.  The look on a little girl or boys face when they bring that big fish in the boat and show it to you is priceless, but the look on your faces is priceless to him.

We were very disappointed with the trip. Although it was very windy, which is not an easy condition, we did manage to catch a small snook, a black drum and numerous small non-keeper mangroves. However, he talked incessantly about topics we had no interest in such as guns and cars. Sprinkled in were some good fishing stories, however. Consequently he did not move as frequently as I have experienced with other guides when the bite was not on - just continued yacking away. He would just not shut up.

My guest ended up having to pull up the anchor constantly, not something one expects when you are paying good money for guide service. Both of us are experienced fishermen. However, on the positive side, I would say that he would probably be great if there were kids on board or if you were new to fishing. His boat was nowhere near what I expected given the competition - old and beat up. No power pole or electric trolling motor. Will not rebook.

Had a great half day charter catching a number of nice Drum and a Redfish.  The highlight was catching three nice Cobia, a great fighting fish and great eating fish.  We were the envy of the dock when we returned.  The captain kept us entertained while we fished.  Overall a very good experience.  Would recommend this Captain highly.

Had a great time with Captain Scott, the fishing was fun and exciting. He was very informative about the fish and how to fish them.  He had a great personality and you could see he really enjoyed watching you catch a fish.  If the opportunity presented itself I would definitely go fishing with him again.

Capt Scott was fully prepared and we’ll equipped for our trip we originally booked an inshore trip but at no extra expense he asked if we wanted to go offshore for king mackerel on first cast and short time after putting out lines fish on!!  Which continued for quite a while and 8 fish later he knew when the bite was over and took us inshore for snapper After our time was up he took us back and cleaned and bagged our fish. great trip!!
