    In not sure.... Never fished on the boat. I do know they take put kids a lot bc I see the Facebook pics. Seems like a very good boat and crew.

    So glad to see that this thread is still alive! There are so many great fishing experiences and photos here! Amazing!!
    Hubby and I finally had a day to go search for some reds, and we had a super day on Sat. Finally caught some keepers and some big throw-backs. It was a beautiful day and our redfish meal tonight was delish! :)

    I see two! The clouds over the land look like one with its back emerging from the water... with its face to the right side of screen. Then the cloud that is front right looks like a view from a gator from below the water. But then again... most every abstract shape looks like a gator to me! :)

    Can anyone recommend a good inshore guide in the Chuckalooski (sp?) area? 10,000 Islands? Thanks.

    No fly fishing. BTW, those are some awesome reds and snook above. I am envious.

    then fish with this guy out of Captiva Island if you want some of that action. one of the best inshore guides I ever met. not fancy, just local cracker that grew up on Captiva with his dad and uncles as guides

    http://www.captjoescharters.com/

    snook, red, and tarpon in one day are not unheard of. sharks and jewfish are gimme's if you want to pull a muscle. pick a time around the full moon if possible to get the best snook bites.

    if you want to fish skinny water sight casting for the big explosions this guy in Chokoloskee is pretty good at it and has some nice Hells Bay shallow draft boats to get where others can't.
