Had a great time with caption Geoff Crouse. He put us a lot of fish and also really enjoyed the boat travel as well. It was a great day.

Captain Geoff put us on the fish we wanted all day long: snook, reds, tarpon plus snapper, and jack. Knowledgeable, friendly guide. Will definitely use again next time we're in Naples.

The best fishing trip I’v ever been on, starting with a big tarpon that I didn’t land, but making up for it was a monster 40” Snook. I will definitely be going out on the water with Captain Geoff again.

Capt. Geoff and Eric provided a top-notch trip...with a boat load of fish. We went to lightly pressured inshore areas that provided non-stop action. Geoff's personality was wonderful and it was endless laughter on the entire trip. More importantly, Geoff and Eric found a way...More
