“A Great Day on the Water with an Excellent Guide! Great Fishing as Well!”
[5 of 5 stars] Reviewed May 8, 2016
I met up with Captain Jim at the Matlacha boat launch at 7:00 am to begin my in-shore fishing trip. We began by heading out to catch some live bait for the day's fishing. Jim will do this ahead of time for anyone who may not be interested in this part of the experience but I was happy to get the full experience for my trip. Jim didn't deduct the short amount of time we spent collecting bait fish from my trip so that experience just provided me with more time on the water. A win-win.
We had a beautiful morning for the trip with what Jim tells me was a perfect tide (incoming). Over the next roughly 5 hours we caught a legal Redfish, a keeper Spotted Sea Trout and a legal size Snook, as well as several other fish we chose to release. The Snook also had to go back to the Gulf, as the season for Snook had just ended a day or two prior to our trip, The fight to get him to the boat was however the highlight of catching him in any event.
Jim was great about moving from place to place, whenever the fishing action would subside for any period of time. That helped us have a great and very successful day on the water. When we returned to shore Jim cleaned the Redfish and the Trout for me and we parted company. The fresh Gulf fish provided my wife, daughter and I with an excellent dinner that evening. All in all I had a fantastic time with a wonderful south Florida fishing guide who also proved to be a very nice guy. Cheers!Visited May 2016

Captain Jim was super! We've been on many charters with different captains in this area and it absolutely matters who your captain is! Not only is he a very nice guy to talk to, but he knows this area and what he's doing. He was prepared with fresh caught bait and ready to go when we arrived. What a beautiful day we had...I highly recommend that you call him to book your next trip!Visited July 2016

-Knows where the fish are and understands what it takes to get them to bite. Will probably be back next year to try again to get the big ones to hit.
