"I have fished all over the world and this was BY FAR the best day of fishing I have ever had! I lost count of the number of fish we caught with Capt Elmer, but I know we caught 18 species of fish! Mindblowing!"
- Sean Finter, Annapolis Maryland
" There's a couple reasons I so greatly look forward to my charters and nature expeditions with Capt. Elmer Pillon. Aside from having an uncanny 6th sense for finding and putting anglers on fish, and tracking and spotting wildlife, Elmer is a high energy, passionate conservationist and a spiritually uplifting human being. I have enjoyed some of my best days on the water with Capt. Elmer and some outstanding nature safaris in his White "Rhino" jeep. Elmer's kayak trips are a blast as well and always lead you to fish and wildlife.
Watching Elmer's trajectory from physical rehab proprietor and clinician to pursuing and earning his Captain's license, while putting Friends and patients onto more than 1200 snook (and other species) along the way this year, has been a real joy. The quality of a day on the water, or on safari in the Everglades with Elmer, is always coupled with great dialog, patience, positivity and a very special brand of gratitude....in short, a true gift to all involved! And speaking of gifts, wait to you see the video memory Elmer will create for you after your special day with him!
Can't wait to get out again with Elmer!!!
Best Fishes Always,

"I have fished my whole life but it wasn’t until I met Elmer in 2005 which is when I learned how to truly fish the area of water I was in. I was 15 years old when I met Elmer and our first fishing adventure was in kayaks in Stuart Florida. I never had experienced fishing like this before and it changed my life. I learned how to read tides, clearer conditions, weather reports, and how to pick a bait that will be most effective based on conditions. I have gone on over 100 adventures with Elmer and each time we always caught fish and landed some of the largest snook I have ever seen. Elmer has taught me almost everything I know today about fishing and I can’t wait for our next adventure on the water. #TeamHookaSnook oh yeah can’t forget “FISH ON!!!!”

"I fished last Saturday, October 12 with Capt. Elmer. We started early in the morning the tide was high and the bite was slow. CaPt. Elmer said wait till the tide turns the water will warm and I’ll take you to my secret spot. Well Capt. Elmer was right we ended the day with several small snook and two monsters 36 and 38 inch! My Biggest yet!
- Jim Wiles, Coral Springs, FL
Captain Elmer Pillon introduced me to kayak fishing about a decade ago. Since then we’ve shared many memorable adventures with the pictures and video to prove it. I can honestly say there’s’ no one I'd rather spend time outdoors or on the water with than him. His personality is engaging and infectious, his knowledge is extensive, he’ll put you on the fish, and his commitment to give people the experience of a lifetime is simply unrivaled! Get out there with him and catch em up!!!
