If your looking for a great fishing experience with a 1st class outfitter this is the company to use.

Not only did we land a couple of (30 lbs) tarpon but we learned about the behaviors and fishing techniques for landing tarpon. We had a wonderful time. Our daughter loved being on the boat and seing the fish. Captain Paco was great... More

This was not fun. The entire 4 hours we only hooked 5 fish bringing none into the boat. We followed all of Captain Paco's instructions. Paco's website stated we would be provided with live bait. We only used lures and trolled the entire time. This was not a fun or exciting experience. He was overly concerned with all of the... More

One half day fishing trip and we get two bad reviews from the same couple that hooked and fought 5 Big fish during the morning. Unfortunately this family lost all the fish while fighting them due to their acrobatics and the Tarpon pulling the hooks. Tarpon are famous for that and I want my clients to catch fish more than...

I am an avid fisherman and Capt. Paco is a great guide. I was able to land a 80 pound tarpon,6 snooks and 2 amber jacs on the fly. He provided a nice Gloomis 9 weight fly rod with deceivers tied by the Capt. himself they were truly efective. Had a blast and first Flats Grand Slam. Thank you so... More

My morning with Capt. Paco was great. We started at 5a.m. which is great if you're a real fisherman. By 6 a.m. we had my first fish on the line and 15 min. later I was holding a Yellowtail Jack. My grand slam started there and in the next 3 1/2 hrs I caught 5 snook and 2 tarpon. I... More
