Jesse and Kelly worked extremely hard to make sure we had a wonderful experience while Tarpon and Goliath Grouper fishing. Within two days, we jumped 15 tarpon and hooked 2 Goliath grouper. If you are looking for knowledgeable guides and a good time, book with these guys! We will definitely be back soon! Thanks for the trip Jesse and Kelly!

Our dream was to catch a Goliath Grouper and Capt. Jesse and his wife made this possible. My cousins and I came all the way from NY to do this trip and our expectations was way over what we expected. I highly recommend Florida Inshore Xtream Charters and you will have no regrets. The grouper however bussed our butts.

Went on a bucket list trip to catch a fish that weighs more than me. Started off with a phone call to different guides in the area and Jesse was the most honest and willing to chat with me and explain things. That goes a long ways in my book. We chatted and agreed on a time to take the trip when I could get 3 days in a row of fishing. Evening before we were going out he messaged me that we should try for the Tarpon as he had them pegged and we should be able to find them in the morning. Day #1 Sure enough it wasn't even fully light yet and we already had them located and on them. I ended up hooking into 4 and getting a really nice one boatside before a big bull shark came in and got my tarpon. The whole time I was fighting these fish Jesse and Kelly were helping me and explaining how to fight these silver rockets. Had a great day with them tarpon fishing for sure. Day #2 After the Goliaths today. Day started out going and getting some stingrays to use for bait. This was about as much fun as anything. Hunting them in the shallows and making quick decisions on getting them. After we had the baitwell loaded we went hunting goliaths. I ended up getting a #250 lb one first. My cousin hooked into a monster that we were able to see and figured it was easily 75-100 lbs more than any other one on the trip. He got off but gave a great fight for a bit. Caught another one that was #300 plus easily. Ended day #2 and was able to head back to recover for the evening. Day #3 started out with murky water conditions so getting some stingrays was hard. Storm came in and made us hole up for a bit. After the storm we went back out after the goliaths and while we were setting up a bunch of Jacks and Spanish Mackerel were chasing bait. I was able to make a few casts in to the school and get us some good size jacks and and released some others. Tried a couple different spots and finally located one that was hungry. Ended up getting the biggest goliath of the trip at around #350 and was ecstatic. Such and awesome experience with two hard working individuals that I now call my friends. Can't go wrong with these two as they will do everything they can to get you on fish.

My wife and I booked a trip with Captains Jesse and Kelly on Memorial Day this year. It was our first time fishing Boca Grande pass for tarpon and neither one of us had ever caught one before. Captain Jesse was a fantastic coach and put us right on the fish. I hooked a tarpon on the first drop and we had it boatside before the sun even came up. Captain Kelly was on top of everything when it came to the gear and handling the fish and my wife really appreciated her encouragement and hard work. They really know their stuff and were both very professional and friendly. I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting a tarpon trip in the pass. We will definitely be fishing with them again next year for tarpon season, and hopefully we can find time later in the year to go for other species. Best fishing trip I have ever been on!
