"Great trip! Nicky's very knowledgeable and it's obvious he enjoys what he does.  Hit out limit on red snapper and pulled in some Jacks as well.  Will absolutely be going back and would recommend to anyone interested in a trip out of Destin. Thanks Nick!"

"Had a great time yesterday with Nicky! He was very helpful and made the trip a wonderful experience! Will go back again! Also got some great fish!"

"I hire guides almost every year. What matters most is their helpful attitude and work ethic. Captain Nicky worked hard today fishing cold wind, currents and helping these two teenage girls catch fish. He showed them how to cast and coached them on the bite. If you've got youth or you want to go for more competitive game fish, this is your guy. Highly recommend him."

"My first deep sea fishing trip was a blast. Thanks so much, Nicky and Lauren. It was awesome. Caught a ton of fish. He has a nice center console boat and knows where the fish are. Nicky gave my 15 year old step daughter a great day of fishing. He even let her drive his boat!! Dealing with Lauren on the phone was painless. You can sure tell that fishing is their full time job. They are pros. I'll definitely be looking this company back up in the near future. Great day fishing in Destin!!"
