“This is a great outfit and guide Mike Groshon is top notch. He worked hard to put us on fish for two days and we wound up catching 35-40 Peacocks on artificial and live bait, as well as a Snook and other species. I would highly recommend this outfit and Capt Mike Groshon.”
“This was my first trip targeting peacock bass. Captain Wayne said he would put me on them and he did. We hit several spots he knew were producing and I probably caught 20 to 25 peacocks. It was a great trip with a knowledgeable captain and I'm looking forward to doing it again.”
“I was fortunate enough to get Capt Kirk as my fishing guide. There were also three newcomers in total to include my 6-year old boy. Capt Kirk made everyone comfortable and trained us patiently and thoroughly. My 6-year old is now hooked on fishing after having caught his first one (thanks to the excellent experience provided by Capt Kirk). I HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend Capt Kirk for all experience levels and plan on asking for him, by name, for my next trip.”
