In terms of setup, the booking was super simple, and we were out on the boat heading to our spot within about 5 minutes of arriving at the dock (they had the tackle and bait all set for us). This was some of the best fishing I've ever experienced. We didn't even have to jump spots, Kevin and Bill knew... More

On my way to key west we stopped there for a few hours to take pictures and visit the beach ...there is a shore that's takes to this isolate part of the beach where we did not have any problems with seagrass or odors..

Kevin was extremely knowledgeable and was determined to put us on fish. We caught two nice tarpon and got to fish both the Bahia Honda and 7 mile bridge. Will be back to fish with Kevin next time we visit the keys.

What an awesome time last week! You and Kevin are awesome and I cannot thank you enough for helping create the awesome memories. That tarpon was a bucket list item for Chris. By the end of Friday’s trip he is asking me “when do we have book to be sure to get out next year?” Jackie would not have been... More

I hooked into 12 tarpon in 2 days. These guys totally know what they are doing. It was really an excellent trip and worth every penny.

Captain Rapps and his group of fellow guides have it totally dialed in. I've fished Tarpon quite a bit but landing a triple digit fish has eluded me. My cousin got a 100 lb fish on(and landed) after 1 minute of fishing the first day and I hooked (and landed)a #125 the next day within 20 seconds of casting! There... More

Our group fished with both Captain Pete Rapps and Captain Kevin Grubbs. We crushed the Tarpon. We can't wait to book another trip, these guys are the best!

Pete Rapps and Kevin Grubb simply catch more tarpon at Bahia Honda than anyone else. I have booked Pete two times and he is simply the best at what he does and a pure pleasure to be around. My last trip I was fishing on my on and Pete still gave me good advice in getting bites. This is so... More

My group consisted of four guys and in three days of Tarpon fishing we hooked up on 20 fish! When you arms are that sore, you had a great time! It is an experience that I will attempt again and again! Hook up with the boys at Bahia Honda Tarpon Charters, you won't regret it!

Always wanted to go Tarpon fishing and the trip with Captain Kevin exceeded my expectations! He is knowledgeable, pleasant and all about catching Tarpon. Plenty of action, caught fish until we were exhausted. Great first mate as well. You will book your return trip before you leave.
