I booked a trip with Captain Brian for myself, my father, and my two boys, ages 5 and 8 the week of Thanksgiving. I've taken my boys on a handful of chartered trips prior to our trip with Captain Brian. I made a special request that we fish inshore for half a day, dock at a restaurant for lunch, and then island hop for the second half of the day. This was due to my youngest not being ready for 8 hours of fishing. Captain Brian was happy to oblige. We left dock at 8:15 and were on the fish shortly thereafter. We started in the mangroves and caught about a dozen redfish within a span of 30 minutes. As soon as the bites slowed down we were off on the prowl. Spent the first 2-3 hours in search of redfish and had our fill. We had decided to go after different species and the Captain had a spot in mind. We went to the Clearwater jetty. It turned out to be a honey hole. In the span of one hour, we caught, bonnethead shark, grouper, Spanish mackeral, snook, lady fish, redfish, and maybe one or two more species that I can't recall at the moment. It was fantastic. My boys were hauling them in just about as fast as we could cast. Docked in Clearwater and went to Freshy's for lunch and the we were off to check out some scenery. We ended up at 3 rooks island, which was fantastic. We had the place to ourselves and the boys spent the remainder of the day searching for shells. Couldn't have had a better day. Weather was perfect and Captain Brian was on top of his game. He was great with the kids and out us on the fish. My biggest compliment is that he knew when to throw in the towel and head to a different spot. If the fish stopped biting for 5 minutes, we were off. No messing round. I've been on many trips and most Captains will waste time trying to bleed a spot dry. Not Brian. He'll be our go to every time we're in town. Couldn't recommend him more highly.

Captain Brian is great,a down to earth guy who knows exactly what he's doing. He put us on the fish right away that we caught so many the last 10 or so we had to let go. I would highly recommend him for anyone looking. Will definitely be calling him on all my future trips to Florida!

I was very excited about my trip with Captain Brian this morning and today because while I’ve been on many vacations in Florida at different places I’ve never booked a chartered fishing trip. Simply put Capt Brian is the best and extensively knowledgeable of not only the area on the water but the habitat of different fish and their eating behaviors. This fish I caught here 30 inch and quarter was in a school of Redfish about all the same size. Captain Brian spotted the school and put me right on it! Catching this big Redfish was exciting and will be very memorable for me! I totally enjoyed the day on the water with Captain Brian and you will as well so book a trip with him for some enjoyable fishing!

My 5 year old son and I took a half day trip with Capt. Brian. He absolutely is the best guide I have fished with and I’ve fished with a lot of them. He put my son on fish, put me on fish, was extremely patient, knowledgeable, personable, easy to talk too and helpful to me and with my kiddo. Every place we went he called out the type of fish we were targeting and we caught them. To top it all off he found us some dolphins which we loved and at the beginning we got to watch him catch all of our baitfish, which was Super cool! Fantastic experience! We will definitely be fishing with Brian again. Thank you Brian. What a blast!
