Hey Madsnookin! Jesse, Just wanted to drop by and say THANK you form Leona and myself for volunteering to participate in Saturday’s (24th Sept 2011) Take a Veteran Fishing Tournament at Calusa Island Marina in Goodland. My wife and I who has 42 years of service 22 and 20 respectively will always cherish the day you took out of your life to assist with this venture. You could be with your family (who we met later on) or friends (Soto You put us right on the BIG FISH. 1st time catching redfish and my wife hauls in two (27" and 25.5") all we can say is WOW! We placed 3rd out of 40 teams in this competition. But the friendship we made is worth more than any prize. We just wanted to say a BIG thank you to you and "Soto Mo", and we will be back!
Mike and Leona






I’ve hired Capt. Jesse many times over the past 6 years as my guide for fishing the 10,000 Islands. He’s top-rate – a true professional  and he always puts me on the fish. I am always impressed with his  thorough knowledge of the area and also with his conservation environmental efforts. He knows how fragile the 10K Islands are and  takes care to catch and release, never litter and tread lightly. Plus he  knows every honey-hole in the Glades. I wholeheartedly recommend his services.”





“My brothers and I hired Jesse sight unseen to take us  fishing and he put me on the biggest fish of my life! We consistently caught fish of size and the species we wanted. Not only that, we bonded quickly and became friends as well. Jesse is my first choice always when fishing in the 10,000 Islands and Naples/Marco Island, FL area. Jesse has also been a great resource of valuable information to me and my brothers. He could have chosen to be tight lipped like a lot of guides but instead saw the value of making sure we had a good time whether we were using him that day or not. He already knew that by providing great service, he would win our repeat business. He was right.”

Alana and I REALLY enjoyed our time with you.  You're a really awesome guy and hopefully next time we are in Marco we can go out.  This time I'll actually know a little more about what I am doing!!!  Alana even mentioned the possibility of having dinner with you, your wife and your boys.
Keep in touch!
