Awesome day of fishing. Corey taught us so much about backcountry fishing and about the types of fish. Caught a bunch of fish and had a blast. Can’t wait to come back next year. If you’re looking to have a great day with a knowledgeable, friendly, and action-hungry captain he is your guy!!

Had a great day with Captain Cory he did everything possible to put us on fish and even stayed out longer than the half day we’d chartered to make sure we had enough fish to take back home! Plan to use him again next time I’m done here

Capt cory put us on some tarpon yesterday! Thank you, buddy!

It was fun to start with a casting net to catch bait fish. The first few hours of fishing were slow due to the time of day and the tide change, but Captain Cory kept things interesting and moving so we didn't get bored or discouraged. Excellent action and a fantastic experience with my daughter. This trip is highly recommended. Thank you, Captain!

After getting some bait, Capt Cory took us right to a fishing hole, and it was nonstop action for hours. My wife caught a 20-pound grouper as well as several other monsters. Would absolutely recommend it!!!
