Tarpon fishing off Anna Maria Island with Capt Matt last Saturday was a blast. Excellent captain, a true professional, and fun to fish with. My boys caught 2 beautiful Tarpon in tough windy conditions.

I have fished with Captain Matt a few times now and each time has been great. He knows he area extremely well and if something is not hitting then he's got several places to take you. If you want to catch fish then book him!

Had an excellent day on the water with Capt. Matt. Caught plenty of Snook and Sea Trout. If the bite slowed down he would move and find the fish. Beautiful weather for the trip. Winds we heavy the day before so Tarpon were out of the picture. Will book again. Thanks for a great trip for my son and self.

We booked three days with Captain Matt. The wind blew but Matt was still able to find some tucked away places for us to fish. We hooked up allot of Snook and Trout. We kept some Trout and took them to area restaurants to prepare a meal for us. A great experience! Can't wait to fish again with Captain Matt!

This is the 2nd time we've fished with Captain Matt and it was outstanding again. We fished all day this time and landed fish all day long. If we weren't catching fish he quickly relocated to another spot to try again. Caught our limit of Sea Trout and had a blast going after Snook which included a 32" catch. We... More

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 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
