We caught several skate/rays, a red fish and several shark. It was awesome! Capt. Scott was very professional, very knowledgeable and a lot of fun. Worked well with the kids and taught them how to real in a "big one". Thanks for a great time! Highlight of our week!

I was jonesing for some fishing so I looked up Orvic fishing guides on Amelia. Jeff comes up on top and for good reason. Fishing is his passion and we soon found the red fish even though it was the slack season. I'd recommend him. I fish some and have used many guides. You can tell pretty quickly those that... More

Just spent an awesome morning with Captain Jeff Crumpton. He is very knowledgable, fun and you're definitely going to have a great time! He picked us up right on time, told us about all of the surrounding areas and gave us a 101 on fishing! My husband and I are very experienced, so Jeff taught us the basics - just... More

We arrived as agreed at 7.45am and Jeff no showed. We phoned him twice, we asked a lot of people, we left messages but nothing. Having travelled all... More

Captain Jeff is fantastic! He treated me and my two sons (13 and 15) with the utmost respect and courtesy the entire trip. We are not very experienced with fishing, mostly bream and catfish in fresh water. He explained to us in detail everything we needed to know to catch fish and lots of them. He was never condescending but... More

We were lucky to have this captain on our trip out on the backwaters! Very knowledgable, great personality, and knew exactly where the fish would be biting. We would absolutely come back and bring the kids along :)

The tour guide was funny and friendly. Def. booking another tour for the ecosystem tour (shrimp). Con: 3 hour trip. Just wish they would post length of trip just for... More

Jeff got back to me right away with details about the trips he offers. He answered all my questions and we set the date! Our afternoon trip was awesome. We didn't... More
