I did a half-day tour with my father-in-law (78) and my son (11) and we all had a great time. Captain Kaleb did an expert job of finding us spots where they were biting, and we caught seven different kinds of fish, including a bunch of keepers. He even filleted them at the dock for us and we took them to a local restaurant to cook for lunch! Low key but friendly, definitely recommend.

My two sons and I went out with Austin and we had an awesome day! Our goal was to surprise Mom and return home with our Christmas Dinner. Mission accomplished! Several big redfish, a large sheepshead, a beautiful grouper (released) a bunch of snapper and a bunch of trout were landed in a few hours. Austin is a very knowledgeable guide with a world class attitude! We look forward to our next trip!! Highly recommended!

We booked 2 fishing trips. We went out with Captain Kaleb the first day. It was very late in the season but we had a great time and he put us on the fish! Kaleb, maybe young but he knows what he is doing. I pulled my 23 foot Dargel Kat from Texas and what a great break it was to have him looking after me. He was polite, vigilant and knew what I needed before I did! The boat was well appointed and could easily handle 4 anglers with no experience at all. The only thing I would do is put a cushion on the seat for him to drive. I have no butt, so that would have made running between a lot more comfortable for both of us. I would gladly spend another day of fishing with him any time. My 2nd day was with Captain Austin, Kaleb's brother. Also young but just as knowledgeable. We went off shore that day and I was not disappointed. Again he knew where the fish were and put me on them. The boat was welled appointed (it had a cushion) and Austin was a great captain. Everything I said about Kaleb was true of Austin as well. These were the best 2 days I spent in Evergades city. I am a female angler. I have fished all over the world and hired many guides. It is much more common now than 20 years ago, but male guides tend to assume that women can't fish as well as men. That they need more help and guidance. Neither of these young men made me feel like any thing less than an equal. They both respected my experience and knowledge a every rare find. So ladies if your looking for a great day of fishing these 2 are the ones! I would highly recommend them!

I have enjoyed 3 excellent trips ( 2 with Captain Caleb, 1 with Captain Kevin) in the backwaters between the thousand islands. Both Captains are knowledgeable, helpful, friendly and patient. You do not need to be a knowledgeable fisherman to catch fish with there help and should you be a experienced fisherman they can still teach you a new trick or tell you something you had not taken into consideration before. We caught plenty: trouts, redfish ( delicious) snappers, snook ( to be released), sheepshead, jacks, lady fish....Highly recommended for all, first time fishing experience or experienced fisherman!
