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!

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
