Absolutely awesome experience!! Richard is the best, very easy to talk with, knows what he is doing and knows where fish are. We did a 6 hour trip and caught 11 fish. He did a great job helping us figure things out and was very encouraging. He cleaned and filleted our fish without wasting anything. I highly recommend him if you want a great trip. Thanks for making our trip so enjoyable.

Steve and first mate Andy worked as hard as any guides I’ve ever fished with to put us on fish. They were knowledgeable and friendly. If you are coming to the Punta Gorda area to fish, I don’t think you will be disappointed if you book a charter with these guys.
