We highly recommend Captain Steve! He made our first fishing trip with our kids a wonderful experience! We caught multiple fish including a 40 pound Cobia on our 4 hour adventure! What an awesome day!

That was an exciting day for sure. I am so happy I was able to help make a great memory for you and your family to have for years to come.
Catching that 40 pound Cobia was a bonus! One of my favorite fish to catch.

Had great time with Capt Steve. We caught Spanish mackerel, ladyfish, sea trout, a cobia, redfish, in addition to a few sheepheads and puffer fish! I really appreciate the time Capt. Steve spent with my 9 yo son, who ended up catching the most fish of all of us (over 20 fish)! I would highly recommend the inland charter with Capt. Steve for all ages and skill levels.

Thank you for your review.
It is always my pleasure to work with the children on my charters. I try to pay special attention to them because I know that the experience they have could effect their view of fishing in general in the future.
All of my customers no matter what age are very important to me.

Enjoyed a nice day on the water with Capt. Steve. All 3 of us had personal bests of Snook, Redfish and Mackeral. We also caught whiting, sheepshead, puffer and ladyfish. We kept 8 fish but caught many more. If we were not on fish, Steve moved until we got on them. he switched up baits, chummed and provided a great learning experience that we could use on future outings, on the water to catch fish on our own. Capt. Steve iced our fish, we cleaned them at home. We recommend Capt. Steve for first timers to old salts. He fits the bill as a very Good Guide.

I had to read this review over and over several times to understand why we got only a 4 star rating. It finally hit me. For what ever reason I only put the fish on ice for you and did not clean and bag them.
I don't remember specifics of the day as I do many charters but either way I feel this was my fault for either not asking if you would like me to clean your catch or perhaps I had forgotten to bring my filet knife along. No excuses for this.
Providing a 5 Star experience is always my goal. I lacked doing that on this charter.

Thank you for your honest feed back. I am always looking for ways to improve my charters.

Had a great day fishing with Captain Steve. The skipper put us on fish. My wife's first and second Snook. Both trophy size. One admirable part of the trip, the Captain practices catch and release. Kept enough trout for dinner. Captain Steve knows fishing, is personable, friendly, and has a sense of humor. ( he had to have one fishing with me ) I don't think there's higher praise for a guide than repeat customers. ( which we will be ) Again, thanks for beautiful day on the water.

Capt Steve turned us on to some non-stop fishing today...snook, trout redfish. He put my friend on her first snook and even got her a slam! I've fished with Steve many times before and every trip has been memorable.
