I have fished with Brandon many times over the past 5 years. I go back to see him every time I'm in the Naples area. Definitely worth the drive (beautiful in the AM) to go down and do some back country fishing. Brandon knows the water, and knows where and when the bite will heat up. His set up is... More

Captain Austin is an excellent charter captain, who knows the waters of the 10,000 islands well, and knows how to catch fish on top of it! It was an excellent trip and we will be back again to this hard working family run business. Thank You!

He also owns the local bait and tackle shop (Everglades City Bait and Tackle) so he's always fully stocked with bait and well equipped. Brandon and Austin know the... More

This was my second and third trip with Captain Brandon and I will be back for a fourth, fifth and sixth. Brandon knows where to find the fish! He's a southern gentleman that makes you feel at home. No pressure, kick back on the boat and let him point you in the right direction and you will land fish! Really... More

My friend and I recently had a great educational fishing adventure with Captain Austin. We penetrated some of the mangrove ""water ways" and were rewarded with a variety of fish including Snook, Red fish, Lady fish, Drum and Tarpon. Austin is the "real deal" with a great hands on approach to this unique fishing experience. He and his Dad run... More

We dropped into Everglades City on a whim in July. Captain Austin was unavailable, so his son Brandon took us out. My wife and 11 year son were not experienced at fishing. Brandon was polite, patient, nice, conversational, interesting and put us on a lot of fish. His parents should be very proud of the great young man they have... More

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
