Captain Van gave our family an amazing day. The smile on my sons face said it all, he was having a great time. He showed my family how to fish and was great at what he was doing. He knew what he was talking about and where to catch great fish! We all had a blast and Captain Van had... More

We went out in shore fishing with Captain Van today and caught some great fish. This is our second time out with him and we plan on fishing with him again in the future. He is friendly, fun and knows all the best fishing spots! Thanks for a great trip!!

We took the 4 hour family trip last year with our kids (10, 8 & 7 yrs.) and it was great. Even though the weather was a little cold Captain Van Hubbard found us some sheltered areas for the kids to fish and we had a great time. The Captain was a great guide and we saw a lot and... More

Is it possible to give more than 5 stars? Captain Van deserves it! He's friendly, INCREDIBLY knowledgeable, and really desires to give your group a customized experience for everyone to enjoy. We had a group with a variety of ages and interests in fishing. Everyone walked away from the day saying that the time with Capt Van was one of... More

The entire experience was great from communication to booking to the great morning on the water to careful instructions for preparing our catch for evening dinner. We did not have much fishing experience, especially in these waters,... More

We had a great experience with Captain Van. Awesome guide/ captain! He custumized the trip for our 9 year old and ensured he had the time of his life. He knows all the hot spots, is great with kids and was a lot of fun to spend the day with. Great experience! Thank you Captain Van!

I had the great pleasure of fishing with Van on 8/28/2013 in Lemon Bay and just out into the Gulf. I will start by saying the captain is one of the best fishing guides I have had the pleasure to fish with, and produced for me one of my best days fishing. We started out fishing for snook and caught... More
