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.
All around good day, Brian worked hard to get us on the fish and my boys had a blast!Keith C.
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.
Captain Brian put us on a ton of fish! In the first 20 minutes we caught enough Redfish for a family feast. Then we caught up a bunch of trout at a neat island. The winds were calm enough for us to adventure a few miles off shore and we got a few king fish. What a great day!Jeff S.
Awesome experience! My teenage kids loved it.Stephen C.
Guide was great, he was very friendly and helpful, he didn’t just drive us to a spot and let us cast , he tracked down fish out of experience and knew the area very well, we had great luck all three times I’ve been, each time had its own complications, weather, tides, cold front, and he still navigated is to fish, I’d highly recommend this fishing tour, excellent fishing, excellent people.Ryan S.
Brian rocks it out!!! Brian has always proven time and time again that he is the best fishing guide here in the Clearwater area! My wife and I love to go out fishing with him! He is down to earth, awesome person! Just a few days ago we went fishing and no one else was catching any fish at all but we managed to pull trout out for the half a day that we were out! He is so great with our Down syndrome son too!David H.
