Fantastic guide and tarpon fishing experience. Highly recommended. The conditions elsewhere were wavy due to approaching tropical storm Fiona, but the backwater was smooth.

The trip started off slow as far as catching Tarpon but Capt Yorman knew exactly when it was time to pack up and move to the next spot. By the end of our trip he put us on 2 fish that totally made the trip. One was a bit smaller than the other but still fun to catch. One was about 4ft 80lbs, what a blast! Capt Yorman also kept us entertained during the down times. Would definitely do it again.

It was great to be out on the water. We didn’t get a chance to even cast a line as the boat guide trolled and cast all the lines. We touch the fishing rod twice. Unfortunately didn’t catch anything the entire time. Not very impressed by the service provided.
