We thank you for two unforgettable days on the water. While I’m sure they were somewhat routine for you, I can’t tell you how unbelievably special they were for us. We were totally impressed with your professionalism, the fishery, and your equipment. I’m sure we’ll be seeing you again soon. Thanks again for everything and fair winds!

The Yachtfish crew are hands down the best charter operation in the Tampa Bay area. We fished 2 days in December with outstanding catches and will most definitely be back to Tarpon fish in the summer. I would highly recommend fishing with Captain Matt Douglas.

“Unbelievable trip! The Bella Vista condo recommended was just perfect and you were right about the view. And thank you for the transportation you arranged. Juan was an excellent driver and spoke perfect English. We want to try a private home next time. We will be back!”

Mark Skeeter

“Just wanted you to know we really appreciate you going above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect for our trip. You made it our best vacation ever. The 3 days fishing were definitely the highlight for us. Steve is still talking about the marlin. The captain and crew were excellent and definitely knew what they were doing. Steve wants to come back in about 6 months, so we will be talking again!”

“We had a simply fabulous time. Thank you so much for all of your help. As you can see from the pictures, we loved being on the boat and are still talking about how your Dad found those amazing sailfish for us and your Mom’s delicious lunches. Diego was wonderful and worked so hard…we loved being with him. The rest of our trip was over the top as well. Peace Lodge was terrific and we had lots of fun and adventures horseback riding and whitewater rafting. We got back on Friday, but we are all a little sad not to be hanging out laughing together. Thanks again for everything you did for us.”


“My new boat turned out perfect! Your advice regarding what electronics to choose, cockpit layout, rod holder placement, live well size and on and on and on, was spot on. I would have been lost without your help. Especially the stuff you found on the sea trial. Oh, and the red lights above the helm are perfect for running at night. Thanks again Matt.”

Steven Bennett

“Matt, thank you so much for getting the fiberglass repair work done on the stern of my boat so quickly. I can’t even tell anything was wrong. It looks better than when I had my boat completely refurbished 8 years ago! Still can’t believe how the new paint blended with the old paint perfectly. Let’s go fishing!”
