What Others Have to Say?

Great day freshwater fishing with Captain Debbie landing two large peacock bass along with a variety of other fish. She is professional and knowledgeable taking the time and using her expertise to ensure the clients fish the right spots with the right techniques. This was my second trip with Captain Debbie. Having my son experience quality freshwater Florida fishing was a memorable experience for both of us.

Captain Debbie did a terrific job of putting me on fish, and getting my flies out of the vegetation when I missed my casts. She had top notch fly fishing gear which was a pleasure to use. We had much good conversation and many laughs during the afternoon. If you want a really fun freshwater fishing trip in SW Florida, I strongly urge you to get in touch with Debbie and book a trip with her.
