Having lived in FL for about 20 years now, I have had the opportunity to charter a few guides and captains and I must say Capt. Nathaniel Lemmon is right up there with the best, if not the best guide we have fished with. It is rare to find a guide who gets as excited as his customers over a fish and truly loves what they do and I have to tell you it shows in his passion for the sport. I have never had a guide work so hard at putting us on fish. Thanks again for putting me on the10lb speckled trout of a life time it was awesome.
We just want to thank you for the awesome fishing experience! My father-in-law and I both experienced the BEST sight fishing day of our lives thanks to you and your expertise! I’ve been trying to catch a larger than slot limit redfish for 35 years and you quite possibly have allowed me to catch the largest redfish that I will ever catch. Same goes for my father-in-law as well. Not to mention the fact that all our fish were over 30 inches!!!! What a day!!!
After meeting Captain Nate at the ramp it was less than 10 minutes before we were hooked into fish. No long runs for bait, or fuel, etc. Just straight forward fishing. Picking the right location to launch, the right time (tides and wind), and right gear made for an great day on the water and Florida record size redfish.
Thanks for an excellent day on the water. It was a great trip and really loved getting on those redfish and trout. It was a real blast watching that 9lb trout wanting that mullet so bad. Good luck and I’ll see you again. Maybe a trip down in the winter to get after the reds.
I would like to thank you for the "trip of a lifetime" the fishing was good, the size of the fish were huge, but your professionalism and attitude really made the trip. I am defiantly going to book, book and rebook with you and have already been telling all my friends about the incredible trip we had.
Thank you again for the wonderful day we had at mosquito lagoon. Despite the bad weather we had a great day. You guide me to the right places and I caught some Redfish. I will not forget this trip in my life.
As a repeat customer my son and I wanted to target reds and trout using artificials. We ended the day with over 25 reds, a few trout, and even a flounder on lures. Capt Lemmon had us on fish the entire day, and the smiles in our pictures just said everything. We will definitely come back and fish with him again.
Thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Thanks for your patience with with us novices. Feel like I learned a lot just in the short time we were out. Seeing all those fish in such shallow water was a thrill rarely experienced for those of us that fantasize about being surrounded by reds/trout. I can't wait for the day that we can find our way back to the salt.
Nate, it was a great day! The people at the condo building where amazed at the fish Hunter and I caught. Look forward to hearing from you with the fishing reports.
My wife and I had a blast (regardless of the weather) and can't wait to come back!! I will definitely recommend you to anyone interested in a guided fishing trip!!
I just want to thank you for the awesome two days of fishing. Captain Nathaniel worked endlessly to put us on some fish. Even when the bite was tough he never gave up with new ideas and different tactics to find the fish. This is a trip that my wife and I now make on an annual basis, all the way from Texas. Fishing is his passion and he loves watching his clients catch fish.
Just a quick email to say thanks for two of the best days fishing I have experienced. I found the whole experience fantastic. I will be back over again soon and ready to have another go!
In these days of flats chic, Captain Nate Lemmon represents the best of all worlds: while he has achieved every possible facet of vessel, technique, and locale-expertise, Nate also has the patience, perspective and mojo to make every trip with him a memorable experience.
Thanks for another great trip to Redfish Heaven! A subtropical depression parked off the coast, a smokey haze from the wildfires, and then some rain made for a lousy day. We almost stuck out, but you saved the day. After a 15 minute fight involving line stripping and two laps around the boat, we landed the 36", 17.5# beauty found in the Gallery...blue raincoat, big grin!
Thanks Captain for a great trip! I had a great time on the flats and really enjoyed catching fish with you. I still can’t get over that group of fish tailing and bull-rushing our lures. Then on my second trip I get this 7lb trophy trout!. I now have set two personal bests on fish with you...couldn't ask for more. Thanks again!
Capt Nate, I want to thank you for a great and memorable trip. Both my father and my son had the time of there lives. We were thrilled with the amount of fish we caught and surprised that they just kept coming. I am still “braggin” about my inshore super slam. (Snook. Redfish, trout and black drum). You made that trip one to remember. I have fished with other captains and heard the promises. YOU DELIVERED. In fact we just got back from Key West. We caught more fish in one trip with you than we did in five down there. We defiantly will fish with you when we come back into town.
Hi Nathaniel, My brother and I both had a great time fishing with you over the holidays and WOW what an experience, landing 24 redfish!!! I would recommend you to anyone. You really know your stuff and work hard to see that a great time is always had. I can't wait for my next trip!!! Thanks again.
Capt Nate, I wanted to thank you for a great fishing trip. I have fished in 5 different countries with different captains and mates. You are one of the best!! It is obvious that fishing is your passion. You do your homework concerning knowing the species, reading the water and all the other things that make a captain better than the rest. See you again this fall!
My wife chartered Capt Nate as a birthday present for me. The only thing that would have made the trip better is if we could have done it again the very next day. You couldn't ask for a more professional guide. He seemed as excited as we were every time we caught a fish, and that's saying something. Can't wait until next time...and there will be a next time
Big thank you for a really excellent morning. For this "Brit" it was a really unique experience and a completely different method of fishing from what I am used to. I thought you provided an excellent experience and your knowledge, courtesy and patience was really appreciated.
Hey Nathaniel! We had a GREAT time fishing last week. Tough getting back to work this week! (Son is pictured with a 7lb trout)
Scott and I had a great day. You really know how to spot some fish! Looking forward to chartering with you again soon.
Thanks for those excellent photos, and the great trip. I had a lot of fun fishing with you, and will defiantly keep you in mind if, and when, I am in your area again.
Thanks so much for the day on the water! We had a great time and will be recomending you to any and everyone we know if they are in the area!
Thanks again for the great charter. We had a superb time… (pictured with a 6lb speckled trout from mosquito lagoon...goal for the day)
Captain Nate, Thanks for a great day on the Mosquito Lagoon! Your knowledge of the lagoon and your commitment to catching fish made for a wonderful day! I am looking forward to our next trip together, which will be soon! Thanks again.
Just wanted you to know that we had a great time fishing with you yesterday. We will highly recommend you to anybody that we know who loves to fish if they come to Florida. We'll be back.
You certainly put me on fish, which is all a client could ever ask. I've fished many places in the world and spent a lot of time in the keys and 10-thousand island area, and I found this fishery to certainly hold large numbers of reds. Conditions always vary, but a good, knowledgeable guide that works to put you on fish - as well as a good companion for the day - always makes the experience worth while.
Now that we are 'back to reality' (unfortunately), I wanted to let you know that I sincerely appreciated our time with you last week. You are truly gifted at what you do and it was an incredible experience!!!!! I would go out again with you in a heartbeat! (triple tail pictured here)
It is not often I get to do a guided fishing trip and thanks to you and Robert, I had an incredible time. I caught my biggest Red Fish and my biggest Trout ever. You offer a wonderful experience!
Thanks again for the good trip we enjoyed it despite the conditions. I ended up fishing 4 total days over my break and the one with you was definitely the best. I'm hoping to make it down sometime in the summer and will try to get another booked with you.
We had a great time. My dad is still talking about that speckled trout. You can't put a price on memories. Thanks for all your hard work.
The experience was excellent, just what I wanted to see from Mosquito Lagoon. I am glad we had two days so that I could see what picky fish you have and what a difference a good feeding day makes. You are a pleasure to fish with and we will look forward to another opportunity.
Thanks again for a great trip. With conditions being less than ideal (20mph winds) you somehow found the only area without wind! Five landed fish later and one monster red fish that got away made for a very worthwhile trip. I look forward to our next trip this fall.
Nate, I had a great time! I have fished for redfish now for 2 years from the Texas gulf to North Carolina and although the fish were at times difficult, I did manage to catch my first redfish actually "sightfishing." Your expert boat positioning and way of creating a "non-stressful" atmosphere, allowed me to belay my usual buck fever and cast accurately. We caught a few, hooked a few more, and "Oh my God!" got some shots at 36+ inch redfish cruising the flats...unbelievable! I'll definitely be back, perhaps this fall, to try and catch that huge trout we spooked!
You were great and my dad and I had an excellent morning with you. The amazing Redfish has alluded his grasp....until our time with you. Thanks for making this a very special time with my dad. He has checked the Redfish off his bucket list.
Fishing with Captain Nate in Mosquito Lagoon was my best sight fishing experience yet. I've never seen more tailing Red's and Nate always knew where they'd be, even in windy conditions. Anyone looking for the ultimate sight fishing with a superb guide that truly has knowledge of the water needs to call Captain Nate!
I have officially decided that this will be my yearly trip. Count on me booking at least a half-week possibly more for next year. We had a great time and I wish I could have booked more days (and landed that big red). Thanks again!
Thanks for the great day of fishing. It was one of the highlights of our two months in Florida. We hope to fish with you again next winter.
Thanks for a fantastic day and the opportunity to fish the 'goon. Even after a long day I was so keyed up on seeing all those tails. James and I would love to come back when he returns in the fall and do it again.
A day of fishing with your son can't be beat and Captain Nathaniel helped to make it a day that will be remembered. Sight fishing is my favorite way to fish and Captain Nathaniel put us on at least 50 tailing fish. I was able to bring two nice reds to the boat but was outdone by my 11 year old son who caught two of his own and won our little tournament by landing a lady fish. Thanks for your patience, professionalism and a great time.
