This man knows his stuff! *Friendly* So many captains lack this quality. *Impressive* He knows where they are.. He knows every nook and channel and when and where the fish will be. Not all captains are created equal, don't take a chance with anyone else!More

We had a great time fishing with captain Mark Guillot. He was extremely patient with the boys, moved from spot to spot to make sure we caught fish and had some great “tall tales” like all fishermen do.

Jet ski is $75 for 30 minutes. Book on line at our home page. When you come in to ride ask Capt. Ron if you can have 10 extra minutes free! Tell him you saw us on Trip Advisor!!
