Anther successful day with DJ Timms

DJ Timms
4th time out fishing Florida bass with DJ Yesterday and another great day. My brother and I caught peacock bass in the everglades this time. Fishing with DJ means he will be there when you get there, the boat will be loaded up, minnows purchased, water stocked, rods and reels all lined up like Rockettes, his boat is immaculate. He can get to areas where there are fish that others would not find, And more important than anything else, he is a guy you can spend a whole day in a boat with. He doesn't try to out fish you, because he doesn't even fish when he's guiding, he prefers to stick to guiding duties, making sure you get the most out of your day. Stop looking, you found the captain you want to fish with.

The best guide!

DJ Timms
We had a phenomenal day with Captain DJ! We stayed occupied catching one peacock bass after another during the whole duration of our trip. We also steadily laughed our whole trip. After this experience I would 10/10 recommend Captain DJ!
