Capt Tim is one of the most versus captains, fishing all types of panfish, like Oscars, Bluegill, Mayan Cichlid, and more. And of course, runs daily in the Everglades hunting peacock bass, largemouth bass, and snakehead.

A very good vacation

Tim Nichols
Would you please pass it along to Capt. Tim how pleased we were with our experience fishing with him. Catching 32 peacock bass was a blast and the sight fishing we were doing was unbelievable. Our time with Capt. Tim put an exclamation point on a very good vacation.

Great Fishing Day!

Tim Nichols
Capt. Tim is an excellent fishing guide. I never caught so many Peacock bass and other fish in one day. I highly recommend him.

41 fish!

Tim Nichols
Captain Tim was great and got us on some fish we wouldn’t normally catch. 41 total between two of us: peacock bass, Oscars, two largemouths, one pickerel. Even if you don’t love fishing it was a blast seeing the Everglades and all the animals.

Peacock Bass

Tim Nichols
I would like to thank Liz in the office, and especially Capt. Tim Nichols for a very enjoyable fishing trip to Alligator Alley the fish for Peacock Bass. Mr. Nichols was very professional and knowledgeable, and very accommodating to my needs. It's the most fun I had on my Florida trip! Again, I would like to thank all that made this possible. Yours truly Doug Hill.

What an amazing day

Tim Nichols
What an amazing day we had in the Everglades with Captain Tim! We caught our first peacock bass within ten minutes of boarding the Boat. The action was non stop as we caught fish the entire trip. We caught the attention of a 5' alligator that followed us for close to an hour waiting for a hand out. Captain Tim instructed us to not feed it and assured us we were safe. It was almost as exciting as the fishing. We caught many bass over 3 lb's, several weighed 4 pounds and 1 was over 5 lb's. I have no idea how many fish we caught but 100 would not be a lie. Captain Tim made everything comfortable and guided an absolutely PERFECT fishing trip!
