Neither my Wife Michelle nor myself had ever fished the Gulf before; Captain Stewart put us into Spanish Mackerel, Bonito, Mangrove Snapper, Redfish and Snook. We also hooked and lost a Barracuda in the 20-25 lb. range and a Cobia in the 25-30 lb. range. Cap Stewart's tackle, bait and boat are all first rate and the Captain himself is... More

My two sons and I were recently fortunate enough to go fishing with Captain Stewart. The day was beautiful and the action steady with a variety of fish! Awesome boat, gear and plenty of bait. Great fishing guide...kind of like fishing with a buddy. Once the fish are fileted and bagged, make sure to ask Captain Stewart for directions to... More

We had a great day on the water with Capt. Ames. He's very knowledgeable and honest. Per his recommendation we went offshore looking for grouper and we caught quite a few. Unfortunately we caught 5 within a half inch of the slot limit for keeping but they were super fun to catch. He's a great guide and an even better... More

Did a half day fishing trip catching 35 inch Snook. Captain Ames is an excellent instructor for a couple of salt water novices. Beautiful boat, great equipment, highly recommended !

A little bit of a late start, but Captain Stewart was great at communicating where he was and when he wouldf be arriving. He kept our appointment depsite having to use another boat as his was being upgraded at the time. In any case, he was a terrific guide, put us right on the fish and we all caught something,... More

After hiring most every high profile fishing Captain from New Port Richey south to Fort Meyers I have to say that this man Captain Stewart Ames, is really the Pro's Pro. Not only has he been the most knowledgeable, hard working, gentlemanly Captain I've hired in the past 30 years he also is very flexible with those in his boat.... More

I recently booked a trip for me and my teenage Grandsons. What a day we had!! Capt. Ames put us on fish within an hour. We caught quality fish all day long. Lots of Bull Red Fish, Big Snook and huge Sea Trout. That's what we call a Grand Slam!! We are all experienced fishermen, but we definitely learned a... More

We recently held a "fishing tournament" for our company with employees, families, and kids. One call to Captain Ames (who we have used many, many times) had us 6 boats all with great captains. They all worked together and even on a busy weekend found us places where nobody else was. And we caught fish ... LOTS of fish. Big... More

This is the second charter I've taken with Stewart, and it was another fantastic experience! I would definitely recommend this charter for anglers of any experience level. Not only did we have incredible action, but I learned a tremendous amount that will improve my own success in the future.

I took my family of 4 (14&11 kids) on a half day trip this morning and it was awesome. On Capt. Ames' advice we went out 5 miles (10-15 minutes?) to 30' of water and hooked into the first King Mackerel of the season. Awesome Day. Everyone in the family hooked up on multiple fish and we kept one to... More
