Glenn says,

Had great time with Capt Steve. We caught Spanish mackerel, ladyfish, sea trout, a cobia, redfish, in addition to a few sheepheads and puffer fish! I really appreciate the time Capt. Steve spent with my 9 yo son, who ended up catching the most fish of all of us (over 20 fish)! I would highly recommend the inland charter with Capt. Steve for all ages and skill levels.

Todd says,

Enjoyed a nice day on the water with Capt. Steve. All 3 of us had personal bests of Snook, Redfish and Mackeral. We also caught whiting, sheepshead, puffer and ladyfish. We kept 8 fish but caught many more. If we were not on fish, Steve moved until we got on them. he switched up baits, chummed and provided a great learning experience that we could use on future outings, on the water to catch fish on our own. Capt. Steve iced our fish, we cleaned them at home. We recommend Capt. Steve for first timers to old salts. He fits the bill as a very Good Guide.

Andy says,

Had a great day fishing with Captain Steve. The skipper put us on fish. My wife’s first and second Snook. Both trophy size. One admirable part of the trip, the Captain practices catch and release. Kept enough trout for dinner. Captain Steve knows fishing, is personable, friendly, and has a sense of humor. ( he had to have one fishing with me ) I don’t think there’s higher praise for a guide than repeat customers. ( which we will be ) Again, thanks for beautiful day on the water.

Jeanne says,

Capt Steve turned us on to some non-stop fishing today…snook, trout redfish. He put my friend on her first snook and even got her a slam! I’ve fished with Steve many times before and every trip has been memorable.

Anna says,

Never caught so many fish in one day until fishing with captain steve. Not once did I have to bait my own hook, or unhook any fish. he was so quick with having everything ready for reeling in fish after fish. caught my first red fish, on my first attempt for it. he knew right where to go and simply told me how to get it on the hook. Best times on the water with captain steve, with his knowledge i felt safe and comfortable out on the water. he knows what to do and obviously loves what he does!

Kelly says,

My sister and her husband were visiting from Missouri and love to fish, so I thought what the heck, there must be guides around here. We just bought a vacation house in Safety Harbor and didn’t want to go too far away. Who knew we could literally fish in our own back yard? Captain Steve is very reliable and affable, knows his stuff and does his darnedest to make everyone happy. On this particular day we didn’t slay the fish, but caught enough to keep it interesting. Some nice Jack, Snook, Red Fish and Sea Trout. When the fish are running at the surface it is really exciting.
I will look forward to exploring some lure fishing, especially top water with Captain Steve on the next adventure. We are just getting to know the area, and are grateful to find a true professional who likes what he does!

David M. says,

Never a bad trip. Been out with Steve 5 times and caught everything from red fish, trout, cobia, snook and more, one day all on the same trip.
