What a morning of fishing! Caught a beautiful Grouper keeper near North Captiva. Moved on to a school of red fish and that was so much fun. Next, Capt. Greg went after the trout and that was a hit. Capt. Greg loves to fish and he has such a great attitude when you lose your bait or the line greats hung up. Give him a call and you will have so much fun fishing the waters around Captiva. Thanks Greg.

We visited Greg for a second time this year. He took us out for a half day of fishing. The weather was beautiful and the fishing even better. We caught our fill of grouper and had an impressive brush with a monster bull shark!

Greg is the consumate professional. He is always on time, very prepared and planning every step so as to better the experience for his guests. All of this with a great sense of humor and constant entertainment. He is the kind of guy that makes everyone feel comfortable and safe. From my observation, he is the captain that all the other captains seem to watch.

We are already planning our next trip to see Greg. I love fishing, but never expected my girls to have as much fun as they did. It's great to have conversations around the dinner table about fishing rather than purses and makeup. Thanks Greg!

Two buddies and I had a great time fishing with Captain Greg. He picked us up on-time at a marina on Captiva and took us directly to a spot to the north that we never would have found on our own. Within minutes we were all catching fish.

He's friendly, knowledgeable and a good sport (he didn't even yell at us when we went nuts and 'gave away our spot' after hooking a big redfish). Our half day with Captain Greg was the highlight of our week on Sanibel.

My husband, myself and a family member had a fabulous time fishing with Capt Greg Hood of Tarpoons this past weekend on our trip to Captiva Island! Let me begin by saying how impressed we were with his communication with us in planning the trip; making sure that the time of day would be most beneficial for our fishing success! Originally we were going to go on Friday afternoon- but as he watched the fishing report and noted personally that morning would be best; he called to see if we could change our time so that we could have the most successful day possible. Capt Greg was accommodating in that he met us right at the marina within the resort we were staying so that we did not have to travel off island ( what a plus)! Door to door service! The weather was beautiful- and we caught many ladyfish which we had never seen ( but not desireable for eating). So several time Capt Greg would reposition our boat to the area that he found for catching Pompano! At first we caught a few small ones and had to release; then we hit them right! Caught lots of Pompano and beautiful Spanish Mackerel! Had about 7 Pompano keepers and about the same number of really nice sized Mackerel. Capt Greg was great with instruction on methods for catching each type of fish- his assistance, patience and hard work really was exceptional! Capt Greg was just as excited as we were in catching these fish! It is evident that he loves fishing and loves to share his knowledge, expertise and passion with others! As we returned to our dock- Capt Greg talked with us on how we might cook our fish, gave us some ideas on preparation and asked if we would like them filleted or whole- his fillet skills were excellent and we had two night of absolutely delicious dinners from our catch!
SO, it was a great fishing experience and my husband is already planning his next fishing trip for the fall to go for Grouper with Capt Greg Hood! Thank you Capt Greg- it was a happy happy day!
