"Recently,while on vacation with my family in the Siesta Keys, I decided to try some fishing. Captain Cameron Schurlknight came highly recommended and we are so happy we took that advice! The Captain picked us up right on time and had made all the preparations for a seamless and fantastic day on the water. Many fish of multiple species were caught throughout the day with lots of tips on how and why this was possible. The equipment was first class as was the company and instruction!! At the end of the day we returned to the dock with fillets and directions as to where we might take them to have them cooked! We enjoyed one of the best days of our vacation followed by a fantastic dinner of freshly caught fish of several species. It just doesn't get any better than this! Thanks again Captain Cam! We will be back!"

"My name is Mark Houlihan and I just wanted to let everyone know what a great trip me and my wife had with Cameron this past Monday the first week of March. Cameron is not only a great guide but he is great teacher and an awesome dude. He guided me to some big red fish and the biggest snook I ever landed. He also made sure we got some food for the table, guiding us to beautiful trout and some nice pompano and filet them for us to take home. He even managed to get a pompano to jump in the boat while we were moving with no lines in the water, a first for him. But besides the fish we caught this guy is full of great tips and info about fishing the gulf and intercostal waterway that alone made the trip worth taking. I attached some pics of the fish we caught on my trip. I highly recommend Cameron for a great day of fishing, thanks Cameron and will see you in may for Tarpon."

"Cameron took my dad and I out on father’s day in 2013. Neither my dad nor I had ever landed a tarpon, and we thought a trip with Cameron on father’s day would cure that. We started searching the beach for pods of rolling tarpon, it wasn’t 10 minutes before Cameron had us in the middle of 200-300 fish. We immediately hooked up, the fish was approximately 170-180 pounds, after some aero-acrobatics the tarpon flew off. We jumped 4-5 more fish before I hooked one that resulted in a 45 minute fight. We finally got the 150 pound tarpon to the boat, and Cameron even took a picture of my dad and I together holding the fish. That trip is a memory that my dad and I will never forget. Cameron was nothing but professional and kept us entertained the entire trip. If you are looking to catch some fish in Southwest Florida, Cameron Schurlknight is your man."

"I've been fishing with Captain Schurlknight for about 3 years now. When I 1st started I had a basic knowledge of fishing. But from our 1st outing I was catapulted into a new world that I didn't realize was there. Captain Schurlknight took me and molded me into the Angler that I am today. Someone asked me what it's like to fish with the Captain and honestly it's truly a great experience. I've fished with many guides in the Tampa Bay Area and Schurlknight stands out as a Tier 1 guide. Always prepared for whatever may arise on the water. He recognized my skill level ( beginner ) and focused on improving from there. Most people spend a lifetime seeking the fish of a lifetime. But fishing with Captain Schurlknight I've caught the fish of a lifetime over and over again. From Monster Snook over 40 inches to my personal best Red fish 52inches. Coupled with his knowledge and ability to teach and communicate effectively I've been able to hone my skills which have led me to a few 1st place tournament wins and placing 2nd in the worlds largest Saltwater Fly fishing tournament the Salty Fly. Wether you are a recreational Angler looking to get out on the water with family and friends to the Hardcore Tournament Angler looking to sharpen your skills or if Fly Fishing is your thing I would recommend no other but Captain Schurlknight."
