This was my second time fishing with Captain Van and both times were wonderful! I fished with my sons and we could not have had a better day on the water. As always it was an incredible learning experience. I am pretty sure you can not find a better guide on the waters around stump pass!

Went fishing with Captain Van for a day, it was a great day. We caught so many fish and Van put us on the fish consistently throughout the day. He was very helpful with pointers and very friendly. I would recommend him over any other guide in the area. 4 thumbs way up!

Capt Van was tremendous guide. It was my brother, father, and myself and he took us all out and showed us a great time time on the water. And boy did he put us on the fish!

My husband and two sons (6&9) went out for the half day adventure centered around kids. A cold front had come through the day before and things were slow at first but Capt Van was persistent and we had a great time. He was very attentive to the boys and made sure they had a fun. Caught LOTS of fish!!... More

My dad and I went out on a 4 hour mixed species trip, and although we did not have the best of luck catching fish, we still had a great time. We started off in the bay looking for snook, and then we headed offshore to two different spots where we caught some grouper and mango snapper. While we did... More

My wife & I have fished many parts of the Gulf, but never Englewood area. I found Capt'n Van and am glad I did. Easy to email, and talk on the phone to reserve. We targeted Snapper and Permit and he took us about 12 miles off-shore on an artificial reef. He knows his stuff. We had a great time... 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!!
