This was our second time, we had an outstanding time. Captain Steve really knows where and how. I'm a native to Tampa Bay and have never caught as many fish as I do with him. Can't wait until our next trip !!!

Captain Steve was great at putting us on Snook all day and helping correct our bass fishing hook setting so we could hook and land the Snook! Kept us with fresh bait all day. He had many secret holes to find the fish!

Captain Steve immediately put us on fish and continued to find hot spots all morning. He did a great job of giving just the right amount of advice to both of us on how to successfully use his techniques to hook and get fish in the boat. I will definitely call on him again, and recommend that anglers of any... More

Captain Steve is super wonderful! He kept our rods bent all morning long and we were all smiles from the non stop action. This is our 1st time inshore fishing & we had a blast! We caught many big Jacks, sea trouts and a gorgeous 26" red fish. This is by far the best fishing experience and can't wait to... More

My family came down from Washington DC and we spent a day on the Bay with Steve. Steve not only put us on the fish, he was well prepared and our time was spent with bait in the water. Steve also catered to the age of the people on our trip, which most guides don't pay attention to. Thanks Steve,... More
