Captain was great with 4 younger children and we caught so many fish. Unbelievable, a Cobia came up to get some fish, and the Captain hooked him with a different reel! We all had a great time with loads of delicious fish to leave with.

We went on a half day trip with 4 teenage children (15 & 16 year olds, 2 boys and 2 girls). Everyone had a great time. Captain Van was a patient teacher and helped everyone keep their lines in the water and actively catching fish. We caught so many fish that we had a fantastic fish fry for eight and shared the rest of the fish with our neighbors.
It was a great day! We would highly recommend and we will be calling Captain Van next year when we are in the Englewood area.

Capt. Van Hubbard was patient and kind with our boys. We got several snapper to bring home! He even tried to catch something big for the boys. We were unsuccessful but the boys had a good time trying. We were also able to see dolphins along the way.

We took Captain Van out twice during our stay in Englewood FL during February 2017. This guide is professional, prepared and knows where the fish are. Two different kinds of trips (off-shore and in-shore) were two great mornings. I would highly recommend having Capt. Van show you where the fish are.

We went for a half day trip with Captain Van in April 2016. He was professional and totally prepared to go upon our arrival. We have 3 kids and he hustled all morning to keep the lines baited and in the water. We caught over 30 fish and we counted 14 different species. It was amazing. The kids were constantly hooking up and having a blast. He knew right where to go. My daughter said she wanted to catch a pompano. Captain Van motored to a different spot and she had a pompano in 3 casts. Insane! At the end of the trip he rounded up some dolphins for a surf in the boat wake. Then the fish were cleaned and we were on our way. I can't say enough good things about our trip with him. Thanks Captain Van!!!
