I was visiting Marco Island on a research trip for an article I'm writing about the island for Pilot Getaways magazine.I went fishing for a half day with Capt. Rich. As a semi-retired fishing guide myself, I was especially impressed with the quality of his boat and gear. All were immaculately clean, well maintained and top notch quality.
The boat ride was extremely comfortable, with bathroom facilities and a salon inside for folks who wish to take a break from the hot sun. The guys put us on fish immediately. We caught many grouper and a mixed bag of other species. Rich was patient with my questions (ie: why did you choose this spot to fish? He thoroughly explained the history of the water, how the limestone bottom developed and how it obtained holes from rain--holes that grouper like to hide out in.)
First mate Russell was also very professional and had a great sense of humor. Especially enjoyed watching him hand feed a snook:-) A definite recommendation for anyone who wants a rod bending experience. I look forward to showcasing their services in Pilot Getaways magazine. Thanks guys and have a wonderful year.
