Captain Matt was great! I fished a Friday and a Monday with him. Both days were AWESOME! 20 years and you can still see the passion for what he does!

Fished an afternoon with Capt Matt, he was not professional. Spent 2 hours looking for Tarpin to fish and ended up going to a fishing spot where everyone else was fishing Tarpon. He did not have any spots to fish after telling us he has been fishing for 20 years. At 4:30 he said time to head back, mind you... More

Great Tarpan fishing with Captain Matt. His is a skilled guide with a wonderful clean boat. This was our first experience fishing for Tarpan. Wonderful experience to fish at the crack off dawn with the sun rising and the fish leaping out of the water feeding on blue crab migration. We will use Matt again.

Without question or reservation, Captain Matt is the best tarpon guide. I have fished with him several years and we are always successful and have consistently landed several huge tarpon. He has excellent tackle, a quality and comfortable boat, and his knowledge of fishing for tarpon is exemplary. We caught fish when no one else was able to get a... More

Friends and I fished with Matt May 19th 2015. We hooked and fought. Jumped, as they say, nine tarpon. Leader touched two. I have lived and fished Tampa bay for almost 10 years. I have seen Matt continually out fish other boats numerous times. As a tarpon guide for Ana Maria area there is none better. Matt's boat is extremely... More

Beautiful morning of fishing with Captain Matt. Snook and Sea Trout. Captain Matt is the consummate professional had the bait loaded and ready and we were on the fish in no time. Highly recommended.

I had the chance to fish a half day with Capt Matt at the start of tarpon season this year and highly recommend him. His scheduling and communication are great and he went out of his way to be sure I knew where to meet him. Matt put us on fish right away and after breaking off a fish on... More

Myself and a couple of friends just enjoyed one of the greatest fishing trips of our lives.We fished with Captain Matt 3 days for Tarpon. We hooked up somewhere around 25 fish and boated 6 of them. The fish had just started moving into the area and there were almost no other boats. We couldn't have had a better time.... More
