Such an amazing time with Captain Able on my recent Miami trip. He's extremely knowledgeable, charismatic, and just all around great person. I'm really glad we decided to go out on his boat. We had a very successful morning catching yellowtail, snapper, grouper and more! Highly recommend him to anyone looking for a memorable fishing trip with family/friends!…

Nice, knowledgeable, productive, and reliable are just a few of the adjectives I use to describe Capt Abie Raymond. I have fished with Capt Abie for over 15 years. His mentor is the IGFA Hall of Fame and Billfish Foundation Gold medalist, Capt Bouncer Smith. Both of these two legendary guides worked side by side for 15 years. I try to fish with Capt Abie at least four times a year ( winter, spring, summer, and late fall). His fund of knowledge is unparalleled: a native of Miami Beach, he knows the front (Atlantic to Gulf Stream) and the back (Biscayne Bay) in a Jedi like fashion that one would only expect from a native Floridian. Depending on the time of year, he knows what fish are on location, the best spot, and the best terminal tackle. He can offer live bait fishing for sailfish, deep dropping for grouper, snappers, and amberjacks, or hunting for mahi. Since he knows Miami so well, he can locate tarpon when they are in town. As for snook and sea trout, he reliably can put you on these fish. He is a very kind person. He respects his customers showing a sincere concern that they enjoy their time aboard his vessel. He respects the environment and the precious marine life : he will release appropriately or harvest fish as you request. He also is an expert in freshwater: his knowledge of local Miami fresh water habitats allows him to offer exotic fishing including the Peacock Bass, Ciclids of various varieties, the clown knife fish, and fresh water snook and large mouth bass. He will teach your children the nuances of fishing and will become a life long part of your family’s experience and memories. Simply put, he is the real deal: nice, kind, productive, and just plain FUN!!…

Fished with Abie many times over the years, as great as he is with the knowledge and getting you on fish, he’s even better with my kids. Patient and incredibly interested in teaching them. It’s a treat to fish with him.

How can I cram all the good things about Captain Abie into a comment box? My family has been fishing with Abie for over a decade. He is the consummate professional, a true expert in all things fishing in and around South Florida. I have never had a bad, or even a mediocre day fishing with Abie. I have caught big fish, small fish, colorful fish, fish who fought hard, and fish I was able to reel in easily, all with Abie’s coaching and guidance. Abie has guided us to fishing on the open water, in the bay, and in secret freshwater locations. Every trip has been a blast. He is very good at explaining what you need to do and answering questions. He is kind and patient and generous with his extensive knowledge. He’s also fun and hilarious. I would never fish with anyone else. I cannot recommend him highly enough. Thank you Captain Abie!!!!!…
