We have fished with Captain Matt for almost 10 years now. Each and every charter is a great time with lots of action! Captain Matt’s experience in the Tampa area waters is second to none and he always finds the fish. We have made it an annual tradition and look forward to this trip every summer!

You don't go fishing with Capt. Matt, you go catching! He knows where they are, and when they are going to be there! You don't need to do anything besides show up ready to have fun, bring a lunch, drinks, sun screen, etc., and hold on! He provides the bait and has quality tackle on board his comfortable boat. I've... More

Captin Matt provided my family a fishing trip that continues to be talked about. We all cought quality fish and a lot of them. We cooked the fish Captain Matt fileted and not one of the fish had a bone in it. I will continue to fish with Captin Matt every time I am in Holmes Beach.

There were five of us for a half day of tarpon and redfish. It went by too fast! Half day is just not enough. We caught a bunch and had a blast. I felt kind of bad because not all of us had been fishing like that before and he got annoyed when we did things wrong with his rods... More

Since 2011, I (along with a co-worker) have been fishing with Matt for two full days annually in the fall. This year, I plan to also take a trip to his "territory" (Holmes Beach) in the early spring to go after some tarpon. He is extremely professional and astute; therefore, I have recommended him to several friends and colleagues. On... More
