So the kids wanted to go fishing so after checking various reviews ended with Captain Matt. We met Matt at his boat and once he had fueled up off we went. He was great, getting all the lines ready, dodging rain showers. Even my 16 year old who I did not expect to fish, got curious and ended up with... More

My son and I are new to fishing so my neighbor referred us to Captain Matt and called him the Fish Wisperer. We booked two trips, one in shore and one off shore. He was well prepared for both trips. When you leave the dock you are ready to drop lines and get going. He has some great spots in... More

You will not find a better or more personable guide! Capt Matt gives the extra effort required to make sure everyone has a great day.From tarpon to kings, trout, snook, and reds, you will fish productive areas, with great live bait, for the non fly folks.

We have used Captain Matt for a couple years now for our annual Tarpon fishing trip. Captain Matt knows Tampa Tarpon fishing. He puts us on the fish every time even when they aren't showing and the other Captains are not having any luck. Captain Matt's place is located perfectly to get you on the Tarpon quickly. Great boat and... More

During our visit to Anna Maria Island last week, my husband and 16 year old son decided they would like to try their hand at tarpon fishing. Based on the numerous positive reviews here we booked with Captain Matt, and are sure glad we did. he had originally booked a half day charter, noon to 4pm. The day before he... More

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!

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
