Very nice guide. Very few fish. No Live bait used. Stayed in a very local area. Caught very few small fish. One small keeper. Barely left the area we were picked up from. Too much $ for that experieince especially when expected to tip 20%.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

Great were great and friendly. We probably could have fished a little harder and had more than one bait option. There was a little confusion on the payment. Need to have a CC option at the end of the trip.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

We booked an afternoon trip with captain Troy for my finances birthday. There were 6 of us and we had an amazing time. We caught around 13 fish and had some delicious fish tacos for dinner! I would highly reccomend 30A inshore fishing for your trips!Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

This fishing trip was very disappointing. The guide was not prepared, he had no bait, our time was wasted trying to catch bait. He obviously did not no his fishing. For the amount of money that was spent on this trip, it was a total joke. Not sure if he thought he had amateurs on board, but all three guys are very experienced fisherman. The reason we purchased this trip was because we live in Texas and thought Florida fishing would be an experience. Obviously we thought wrong.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

We really enjoyed captain Troy and had a pretty decent amount of luck. We didn't just tear up the specs and reds but probably caught 15 specs (6 keepers) and a giant redfish. Troy really worked for that one too. Overall a great time on the water with a knowledgable guide who made it very enjoyable. Will be looking up Troy again next time I'm down here.Verified TripShock!

Our inshore guide was knowledgable and fun to fish with. We were able to snag some monster reds and a few trout as well. Been deep sea fishing before and really enjoyed the inshore experience. No sea sickness and still had some big Gulf fish to bring home for dinner!Verified TripShock! Traveler Review
