I had a great time for my first time fishing the area. I am a newbie to fishing and the captain made me feel very comfortable and was helpful. The wind was working against us, but did his best to make trip successful. I got two keepers for the first time since trying to learn this sport. I highly recommend... More

Capt Karty was an excellent guide and worked very hard to find some elusive Redfish. We took home our limit and released some real hawgs while traversing well over 15 miles of the lagoon. He poled us long distances to provide us with good chances to catch Redfish. Great Boat with plenty of room and extremly reasonable rates! I fish... More

We caught trout, redfish, a jack and 2 types of catfish. We saw dolphins and as are as well as many many birds. Would definitely do... More

The three of us caught our limit and enjoyed our day with Capt. Karty. It was a cold start at 45 degrees. We saw a lot of schools of red fish but they weren't very hungry. All in all a good day. We will definitely use his service again.

I am an angler of average ability and have fished with Capt. Karty several times over the last few years. While some trips are more productive than others I have limited out on trout and/or redfish more often than not. Karty always works hard at finding fish and is patient when my casting skills fall short. I have fished with... More

I booked Captain Karty and his friend Mike for a two boat guide on the Mosquito Lagoon for a six person party for six hours and between the six of us we caught only 8 trout total, 3 of which Karty himself caught. Which means for $750.00 between 6 fisherman we caught 5 fish, and they weren't of any notable... More

Some Days Are Better Than Others I am sorry our fishing trip together was less than you expected. I strive to make every trip fun, exciting and memorable. When fishing with different anglers every time it is difficult to ascertain everyone's skill levels, and I, unfortunately, generally default to assuming everyone is better at casting than they usually are. It... More

I was really excited to take my family fishing on the flats while visiting Florida, but was disappointed in how little we caught. We didn't hook any redfish, and caught only one trout, which was too small to keep. In all fairness, a front was moving in, which may have affected the bite. I was not thrilled about paying the...

Booked Kary Again, and again we slammed 'em. He's really got a sense of where the fish are going to be, and what to use to catch them. He's the Tom Brady and Payton Manning of fishing, all rolled into one. None Better. I've booked him again in a couple of weeks.
