Was out at sea with them 4 days in May 2014. They will not start relaxing till you've caught lots of fish, and big ones. We went off shore, reef fishing on both the Atlantic and Gulf side, as well as Tarpon fishing, always catching fish, and big ones. In my case, I'm talking 100-pound tarpon and 150-200 pound goliath grouper. Ariel and Reed are the ultimate professional out there for all kinds of fishing techniques. Only great things to say about them,

We've spent 4+ days fishing in the Keys with Ariel and Reed. The experience was just awesome! The 6 of us had the time of our life. Those guides were just amazing and made our trip memorable. They knew exactly where to go and made us catch so much fish we couldn't believe. We strongly recommend this crew for a serious fishing trip. These guys are pros!

We've fished with Ariel 3 years in a row now and remain convinced that he is the best out there. We took our twin daughters this time and spent 3 days with him and his first mate Reed. Each day was different in weather and each day he was able to work around the challenges from Mother Nature and found fish. The first day and worst of the weather, each of us caught a Goliath Grouper with my husband's probably weighing close to 300 pounds! Can't keep them as they are protected. We caught Cobia, Snapper, Mackerel and Grouper that day. The second day was off shore in rough seas but still we caught a 50" Cobia and lots of Snapper and Mackeral. The 3rd day we got a weather break and Ariel got us on Mahi, Tuna and then the final hour and a half we landed 4 Sail Fish! He works so hard to make sure you have a great time out on the water. We highly recommend him for any type of fishing, any time of the year. He will make it worth your while!!

Capt Ariel and his mate Reed were excellent guides. Enthusiastic and knowledgable, first we caught huge Bonita's, then yellow tail, 30# grouper deep dropping over a wreck (threw it back as it was out season) and then we chased some frigate birds well past our 4 hr trip and hooked 2 large mahi mahi. Great day on the water!

On Friday the 29th of Novmeber, My husband, myself and my Son had an opportunity to fish with Capt. Ariel...we were in a family tournament with 6 other boats...the weather was terrrible...high winds and cold...Well we had a fantastic day! Limited on Snapper.(30 Fish)...caught 7 legal grouper..plus many samller grouper that went back to the sea...and 12 mackarel! Needles to say we swept the tournamnet. We have been fishing with Capt. Ariel for many years...he is the utmost professional and extremely fun to fish with!
Whale Done Captain!
