In Captain Brian’s words:
“I grew up fishing the waters of Pinellas County. By the age of 16, I purchased my first boat and was found fishing the pristine flats that the area has to offer. In 2005 at the age of 22, I received my captains’ license and began taking clients out fishing to give them a fishing experience they will never forget.
I have three children (Juliette, Josette and Fisher) and a beautiful wife Nicolette. Taking young kids fishing and teaching them has to be one of the biggest joys of guiding. Having my own young kids, it has helped me appreciate the little things in life and there is nothing better than seeing a little one hold up their first fish.
When I first started guiding, the economy was in a downward spiral. Knowing I had to do something to support my growing family, I became a firefighter. Working as a firefighter allowed me to support my family and still have over 250 days a year on the water to give people lifetime memories. But after 13 years of two full time jobs, I decided to leave the fire department and focus all of my efforts on guiding and spending more time with my family.
I pride myself on the experience, patience, and attitude that I have developed over the years to make this the most enjoyable fishing trip you will ever have.
I have fished in and directed many tournaments over the years. IFA redfish tour, Peter T. Assimack, Johnson Invitational, YMCA, and the Turtle Slam to name a few. I have taken multiple wins in some of these tournaments. I also was the director for the Xtreme Redfish tour out of Anclote for many years, I had many, many wins in this tournament as well as taking angler of the year twice.”
The Xplor x24 Andros

- 24 x 8 foot Bay Boat with 1/2 Tower

The boat is also equipped with a hummingbird side imaging depth finder. You will be amazed to see the screen when a school of tarpon swim under the boat and it looks like you are looking at them through a camera. The boat will always be in top shape when you are picked up for a charter.
I get razzed all the time about how clean I keep my boat.Captain Brian Mathey

We took a glorious trip with Clearwater Inshore Fishing! Met at the boat on a blue sky day and kids and adults had an amazing time! We caught fish for dinner that was delicious and caught fish as well that were tossed back in. Being Inshore was nice since it did not take long to get to and yet did not take away from our half-day trip. We will definitely try it again! You should too! They were responsive, responsible and very nice to be with at this Fishing boat!Angie B.
Such a great experience and wonderful time with my boys and wife. Brian is very educated and experienced in the fishing industry. He knows how to make it a great experience for the whole family. We have been several times with him, and hope for many more!A. L.
I contacted Brian about surprising my husband with an inshore fishing trip for his 40th birthday. He answered all of my questions, there were many since I knew nothing about a fishing excursion. Our December trip was amazing. Brian was extremely knowledgeable about the fishing patterns relating to the tide, weather, and location. He had us on fish all day. He was very patient with me and my skill level when it came to fishing, and took time to explain things to me. I was worried I would feel uncomfortable since I don’t really fish but that wasn’t the case. Ladies, if you’re looking to surprise your man with a fishing excursion, Brian is 10/10 recommended! We had an incredible day on the water catching the Florida Grand Slam, can’t wait to book again this spring!Wife of Kevin S.
My family and I have been fishing with Captain Brian for 6 years now and usually a couple times a year. Our trip every June is the one I look forward to all year long. I can always count on Capt. Brian to position us over monster Tarpon and world class Snook in June. I can equally count on him to put us on big reds in the fall. It is always a blast whether I have my two young sons and wife on the boat for fun fishing with constantly bent rods, or just the guys chasing monsters. Capt. Brian is a world class captain who strives daily to master his craft and deliver for his clients. I highly recommend giving him a call but not during any of my booked dates :).Joel H.
I highly recommend Brian, my son and I went today and caught a lot of quality fish. I have tried numerous guides all around for trophy reds and snook and Brian kept us on them. I can’t say enough. He explained and worked with my son the whole trip and took time to teach him methods and the whys of how we fished. Excellent.Larry L.
