I fish out of Everglade city frequently and know the area well. Captain Austin, young as he might be, knew the water, the tides and made all the right moves as we searched out each targeted species. We went out as the tide was at ebb and caught a few trout as waited for the tide to begin to rise,... More

Captain Brandon was fantastic with the kids and teaching my wife to cast. He has a lot of patience and got us on fish fast. After cleaning our catch for us we had them fried up at the Rod and Gun Inn where we had met him for our trip. Having a boat ourselves in Charleston, SC and having fished... More

Have done numerous fishing trips in Florida and have to say by far Brandon is one of the best. Did an offshore trip and Brandon put us on permit and cobia right from the start. Stayed hooked up on big fish all day. As a guide he pays attention to every detail. Tide, wind and current all factor into a... More

Highest recommendations for Captain Acosta. My son and I booked two afternoon trips and Capt. Acosta took us to the mangroves one day and out on the grass flats the second day. Both were spectacular. Brandon knows the waters well, and what is and isn't biting. If we got to a spot where they weren't biting, we only stayed a... More

Captain Brandon was a great guide. I ended up being able to book a five hour last minute charter with him (don't count on that happening though, he's a busy, popular captain, so book in advance). It was Brandon and two other people, me and my significant other, on one of his fishing boats that was the perfect size for... More

What a great day! Booked with Brandon and would do it again. Felt like fishing with family. He was patient with my questions, gave great instructions and kept us in the fish. I'd take my kids or my buddies on the water with him anytime. Look forward to our next trip.

I have fished with Brandon 4 times in the past 3 years out of Everglades City. He consistently puts on fish with a huge plus on a wide variety of species. Most importantly he is great with my kids who are between 9 - 14 years old.

I booked a fishing charter with Captain Brandon to take my brothers and me on a fishing experience! and he delivered. Captain Brandon was extremely knowledgeable of the area and knew where the fish were. If we were not having luck in spot he would move us to the right spot. Great boat and fantastic arrangements.

I booked a half-day, inland fishing charter for my family with Captain Brandon and it was a highlight of our trip to Florida! Captain Brandon keeps a clean and well-maintained boat, was well-prepared with all the gear and bait we needed, and was gracious in assisting the entire family throughout the afternoon. Importantly, he was incredibly patient with the kids... More
