Red fish, snook, jack crevale, sea trout! Captain was well experienced and his 27’ Sebalo was epic. Awesome boat!

I have fished with Capt Matt Santiago several times over the past 10 years and I've always had a great experience and caught some great fish. This trip was no exception. I booked 2 days and the bite was on fire!! The 1st day we caught 2 tarpon about 50 lbs each and lost a BIG ONE estimated about 150lbs - unfortunately the hook pulled after about a 10 minute fight and a few incredible jumps. We also caught a nice cobia, snapper and grouper that came home for dinner. 2nd day we targeted redfish and the action was non-stop with double and triple headers of nice fish averaging 24-30". I lost count, but we probably caught 20 or 30 redfish. We caught a ton of great fish and Capt Matt is a great guy to fish with, not to mention, his new boat (Sabalo 27) is absolutely incredible. I highly recommend Capt. Matt and look forward to fishing with him again soon

I was in the Tampa area on a work trip and had a day to kill and called CPT Matt. He put two boats together for a group of us. Weather became a little shakey, but Matt never batted an eye. He worked with us around the weather and actually spent some extra time with us in the flats. Caught lots of Fish on a day that may have been cancelled with other guides. Great guy, great knowledge and awesome equipment.

Captain Matt is very knowledgeable about the fishing in the bay. He is so understanding with rookies or fishing challenged people. Took us to several locations and the minute the bait hit the water, "Bingo" a fish! Caught snook, sea trout, Jack, red fish and mackerel. Clean boat and good bait box. You will not be disappointed. Best money I have spent for 4 hours fishing. Will do it again in the fall. Thanks Matt.

Captain Matt is clearly an experienced fisherman. He knew where to find the fish and we had a great day! We fought a couple sharks, two giant stingrays and several other fish! My kids had a blast! Highly recommend going with Matt! Also... his boat has some shade, not all do!
