I cant thank Capt. Steven Lamp enough for the incredible day on the flats of Key West. Capt. Lamp has a vast knowledge of all the species that the Keys has to offer. You would be foolish to book with someone else.

Went out with John for a morning back country trip. He was fantastic and definitely knows his waters and the fish. The boat and gear was all top notch. Will absolutely return to them when life gets me back to Key West.
