If you want the fishing experience most people only dream about then Captain Stewart Ames is your man. The best boat and gear were used and not one minute was wasted. His energy and years of experience made this the best saltwater fishing day ever.

My son and I went out with Captain Stewart on July 13. We fished for four hours plus and caught some amazing Snook. Captain Stewart was terrific! Learned more about fishing in those 4 hours than my entire combined experience. Relaxed atmosphere and bites continuously throughout the time. Highly recommend! Worth every dollar!

Captain Stewart Ames took us on adventure of a life time. From early morning catching the bait to landing the redfish, seatrout, sharks and lastly a monster snook. Captain Ames knew where the fish were so we wasted little time on the water searching for them. Once hooked the fish was landed picture taken and then released back into the... More

We recently went inshore fishing with Captain Ames and I can honestly say it was the best fishing trip I have ever been on. He is extremely knowledgeable of the area. We caught redfish, trout and some of the biggest snook I have ever seen. Definitely will use him again.

We booked an in shore fishing excursion with Captain Stewart and it was the most memorable outing my husband and kids had the entire ten days in Florida, even including Disney World! We cannot say enough positive things about this fishing trip! For anyone who wants to catch Large fish and have a super friendly guide, look no further, this... More

Fishing trip supreme! Captain Stewart put us on all the right spots at exactly the right times. I landed a 38 incher but was bested by my buddy with the biggest snook I'd ever seen... a 42 inch fish that was all he could handle. In between, we caught dinner for the family (red fish), a couple of black tipped... More

Stewart is one of the best guides I've fished with. Have fished with him for years and always have success. Nothing negative ever.

We live in Palm Harbor, Florida and have gone out with Captain Ames several times now. We have gotten to know Stewart well and would not choose another fishing charter. We've gone out for our own fun and have also treated friends and relatives to a day of fishing. Everyone always has a great time and comes back with stories... More
