Customer feedback;

Fishing with Captain Matt was killer. He is a true pro.  Matt put us on a handful of Spotted Trout and Reds right away.  We did a half day charter, but wish we would have done a full day in retrospect.  We were having too much fun when it was time to go and really hated to leave.

Matt scheduled the trip perfectly. We spent the first hour to hour-and-a-half fishing creeks for spotted trout while we waited on the Red bite to start hitting. Then we motored on to one of Matt’s favorite Red holes and absolutely cleaned up.  We hooked up with 8-10 Reds over about 90 minutes. I think we netted 5 of them.  If you haven’t fought a Red before, it is a true experience.  It happened to be our first time. Had we been more experienced with Red fishing, we could have probably netted every Red we hooked up with.  That said the learning curve was very shallow. We were a boat full of spinning tackle and fly fishermen all accustomed to fishing Rainbows, Brown Trout and Bass in tail waters of Tennessee rivers and we picked up Red technique fairly quickly.

I highly recommend Captain Matt and his Coastal Guide Service. We’ll be back to see him on next year’s family vacation to the low country.
