Fish Stories from our clients

"I Had No Idea Reds Got this Big. Great Trip!"

I caught the biggest Redfish that I’ve ever seen with Capt. Bernie. I never knew they got so big in Tampa Bay. We saw huge schools of Reds pushing wakes in the shallow water and Capt. Bernie knew just what to do. Amazing to watch and amazing to catch! I will be back for sure.

"My Kids Had a Blast! Bernie is a Great Teacher"

We brought our kids out to fish with Captain Bernie and he helped them catch their first snook and redifish. We also caught kingfish and bonitos. They fight hard! My youngest even caught a tarpon and he’ll never forget it. Bernie was so patient and helpful because our kids really don’t fish much. He helped us with the basics and now they fish like pros! We plan to fish with Bernie for every birthday.

"Captain Bernie had rods bent all day! Highly Recommend"

Captain Bernie has the magic touch! We had drags screaming all day with snook and redfish inshore. We even caught some snappers and kingfish to bring home for dinner. My family had a great time. The boat was great too. We never bumped into each other when fighting fish. Great experience!

Local Knowledge

YOU benefit from my diligence and dedication to enjoy some of the best inshore and near-shore sportfishing in the world. Let me show you and your group the excitement and majesty that can only be experienced in Tampa Bay.

'World Class Anglin'
