    Exceptional guide! Very attentive and focused on delivering great fishing. I’ve been fishing with hundreds of guides and Capt Pierre is absolutely at the top of my list. Highly recommend if you want to catch fish with a Capt who is committed to exceptional experience for customers.

    Reeling them in as quick as we could! Captain Pierre knew where to go, and when we got there, he helped bait and cast and put a couple more lines out to boot! They’d start biting, many times on the first cast, till we had several fish hooked at once! Book with Captain Pierre if you want to go catching, not just fishing.

    Pierre is the best guide I've ever had! I fished for 2 days with him last week and we caught at every location we went to except one! Over the 2 days we changed spots at least a dozen times. Gear is in great condition, boat runs great and he's a good guy to spend a day with. Friday we hauled in 95 lbs of fish to filet and released another 50-60 lbs as we were over our limits. Saturday we caught and released a half dozen Reds that were over 30" long and really fat. 11/24-25/2022.
