My two sons and I fished with Jordan on Friday, July 22nd. We could not have had a better day and Jordan was excellent getting us on fish and explaining the techniques that helped us land multiple Redfish over 25 in and one close to 35 inches. We also caught several trout, a couple of flounder and more whiting than... More

Captain Jordan is an extremely professional guide who will work hard to put fish in the boat. We have fished with him on both personal and corporate outings, and have had a wonderful time doing so. Jordan does an excellent job of communicating scheduling, weather and fishing options. He has an in depth knowledge of both the area and the... More

I recently brought a client and his son with me on a fishing trip with Captain Jordan. I was truly amazed how patient and safe Captain Jordan made the trip for them. The young man was able to catch a nice 19" flounder, a 34" redfish, and a large bonnethead shark. It was truly a dream trip for him. I... More

Had a great trip with 2 buddies 2 week ago. Capt. Pate quickly has us on a steady flounder bite at a nearshore reef. We fished there as long as the rough seas allowed, until some of us became sick. We then headed back inside to target Tarpon. No luck with that as it's still a bit early. Capt. Pate... More

What a great time we had with Jordan last week, fishing for Tarpon. The weather was a bit rough in the a.m., so we delayed the trip by a few hours. Because of this delay, and the timing of the tides, I was less than optimistic, but Jordan found the bait, and found the fish. We landed an 80 pounder,... More

Captain Jordan did an amazing job! He immediately put us on the fish. We were not the best at casting with his rods, but he was extremely patient with us. My dad caught a record setting flounder along with some trout and red fish. His knowledge of the water and the fishing in the area made for a most enjoyable... More

Captain Jordan did a great job putting us on the fish. His knowledge of the area as a local was paramount in helping us find the hot spots that only the locals know about.

We were on fish early and had a lot of different fishing through out the day, back water to shore line to jetty and had a blast at each stop. Jordan is a great captain for experienced as well as new fisherman. Very patient with both... More
