This review is long overdue. My son and I have fished with Captain Matt for several years in a row, sometimes with friends and their small children. He has always worked hard and successfully to put us on different types of fish, and been a friendly and patient guide to the (in)experienced and experienced fisherman alike. He has a very... More

Had an awesome half day last Friday fishing with my son and Captain Matt. Went to a bunch of awesome spots and caught 13 fish, Snook, Redfish, and Trout. Caught the biggest fish I have ever caught, nice big Snook. My son caught more fish, but I got the bigger one! Was so fun, we will be back next year.... More

Had a terrific trip with Captain Matt this Monday. Weather cooperated and we went offshore to some spectacular fishing. Fed my 6 person vacation house red snapper which was awesome. Caught over 10 varieties of fish, including battling some false albacore on light tackle. What a fight? He was very personable and knowledgeable. I would go with him again, if... More

We did a half day with Capt Matt in December 2016. The fishing trip was for my son and his two boys 6 &8 and myself the Grandad. We fished inshore and had a great day. We caught 8-10 catch and release snook and a half a dozen eating fish (very nice sized trout and flounder). It is not cheap... More

Had a great time fishing with Matt today. We had 5 guys in our group, and there was plenty of room on his boat. Matt was very knowledgeable about the area and knew some really good fishing spots. Highly recommend you book your trip with him.

We had a wonderful time with Capt Collin. We were visiting Anna Maria Island during the red tide. Coliin called to explain the situation to me and kindly let us move the date to two days later to see conditions to improve. Collin took us to catch the bait fish and let us enjoy the sunny weather. We were able... More

While vacationing with family we were able to take our first chartered fishing trip. Our cousin gave his dad and mom and cousins this charter. We left from the canal just behind Captain Matt's home. He is very nice and did a great job. Since one in our party had a bad heart he worked hard to make our adventure... More

Just got back from my second trip with Captain Matt. Last summer was great, but this year was even better. We started catching snook almost immediately, even though we had to wait for another boat to clear out of the "honey hole". However once we anchored into the prime spot it was game on. We couldn't keep bait on the... More
