I recently went tarpon fishing with Capt. Greg over two days on my family vacation to Sanibel Island and could not be more pleased. We caught tarpon both days, which is easier said than done, one of which being 200lbs. Greg is a very knowledgeable guide and fun to fish with. It is also very easy to tell he is... More

The highlight of our vacation to Sanibel the past two years has been fishing with Capt. Greg Hood. Not only was he knowledgeable about the sport of fishing but his professionalism in guiding my husband and I during our trip was what made it a success. We had the privilege both years to catch Blacktip and a monster Sandbar shark.... More

What a morning of fishing! Caught a beautiful Grouper keeper near North Captiva. Moved on to a school of red fish and that was so much fun. Next, Capt. Greg went after the trout and that was a hit. Capt. Greg loves to fish and he has such a great attitude when you lose your bait or the line greats... More
