Spent the day fishing with Capt. Gary on September 7th 2022. He is very knowledgeable regarding the various species of fish, best spots to find them, best time of day, technique, bait, etc. We did a lot of sight fishing, which means you actually look to see the fish itself, or signs that it’s there, and cast toward it. Different from the type of fishing I grew up with, but challenging and a lot of fun. We were on the hunt for bonefish, snook, permit, tarpon, and others. Gary was able to find various areas where all of those species were there for the catching ;-) , and provided great instruction for proper technique. We even landed some small tarpon in Gary’s super secret spot. Even the smaller ones are a good fight on light tackle and show off with some spectacular jumps. Gary was a good sport and put up with my very rusty casting ability :-). I fished with Gary’s Dad a few years ago who is a fantastic fisherman and clearly taught his son well. I look forward to another trip the next time I’m in the Keys.

My wife and I booked a full day fishing with Capt. Gary on July 12th. We had such an amazing experience chasing bonefish and exploring the Everglades. We smashed a bucket list of species including: bonefish, snook, & redfish. We also landed a bonnet head shark, snapper, jack, and hooked into a lemon shark. Gary put us on tarpon twice, but we couldn’t seal the deal due to some nervous/excited casting on our part :). We encountered a pair of dolphin, and to cap the day rescued a green sea turtle that had a pretty bad Fibropapilloma (FP) for the Turtle Hospital. Gary’s experience, patience, and knowledge made for a very entertaining and informative experience. We would recommend Gary without hesitation to anyone that is looking for a great day on the water !!! We will definitely be back for another adventure with Gary. Pics say it all with happy faces!

Our family (3 adults) did a 3/4 day flats and everglades fishing trip with Captain Gary. We started early by searching for the elusive bonefish and although none of us caught one, Gary sure gave it his best shot looking for them and coaching us on what to do when they were spotted. We moved on to the everglades to fish for snook and tarpon. We saw crocodiles, sharks and rays so quite the adventure! We did hook some snook and tried REALLY hard to catch those big tarpon. Gary was determined and knew where and what to do but sometimes they just aren't biting. We would definitely book with him again either inshore or offshore. If we did not have another commitment later that afternoon, I think Gary would have continued to try and put us on more fish. He is a very nice man and loves what he does.

My son and I were so excited to get out on the water during our first time in the Keys. Captain Gary delivered beyond our expectations. Great direction and knowledge. Fun time flying between spots. Absolute joy watching my teen haul in jack, snook and a barracuda. He'll remember this long after we return home. He immediately asked to book another day...

Gary took us out for an absolutely fantastic afternoon flats fishing. We had a audacious goal of getting bonefish and man, did Gary deliver. Both experienced and new born fishermen had a great great time. What a lovely guy, and a terrific boat. The man really knows what he’s doing. We will definitely be back and can heartily recommend. Even without the catches we had, there was incredible wildlife viewing including rays, sharks, and many different kinds of fish. Loved it!!
