"Best charter out there!!"
"Todd is a great captain knows where he is going and we caught lots of fish one if the best guides in the area. In addition to lots of tripletail, grouper, redfish, snook and snapper we caugh a five foot lemon shark and a tarpon!"
"Not only is Todd extremely knowledgeable and professional, he is patient as well. He was great with my son. It was obvious that he wanted us to catch fish as much as we did. Looking forward to the next trip!!!"
"Capt. Todd knows this area better than anyone I think, because we caught tons of fish at his "secret" spots. They must have been secret because no one else was fishing there and the fishing was awesome. The kids had a great time with him too."
"I heard about Capt Todd from a friend. 2 of my friends and I met him at the marina and were amazed by his beautiful, spots less boat. He was very friendly and took us a pretty good way through the beautiful ten thousand islands. we arrived a a long bank covered with mangroves. The first big snook hit immediately. The action was non stop. snook, redfish, trout, even a small tarpon. The day went by so quickly, it was like a great dream. Don't miss fishing with him. You will have a ball!"
"Capt. Todd Godwin is without a doubt the best fishing guide in S. Florida. With over 25 years' experience, he's a true professional. Whether fishing the back country or offshore in the Gulf, he'll put you on fish. Snook, tarpon, reds, permit, cobia, grouper - you'll catch them…"
"I recently fished the Gulf with a few friends. For the 5th year in a row, we hired Todd to be our guide. We all agreed that he is the best fishing guide in Marco Island. We caught a lot of fish, including red grouper, amberjack, cobia, and snook. We highly recommend using Todd as your captain/guide."
"I have been fishing with Capt Todd off and on for over six years. He has yet to disappoint on any trip. The consummate professional guide. He knows where to go, when to go, and what to do to catch fish once there, inshore or offshore. Extremely likable, boundless energy, and definitely patient with a bunch of old guys like us. The best guide in southwest Florida if not all of Florida."
"Todd is totally all about the people on his boat and dedicated to bringing home the species of fish you are after. From off shore to pounding the backwaters, Todd is the best."
"Capt. Todd is a must when on Marco. I have seen him work with novices and experts, I have fished backcountry and open water with him. He is very professional, enjoys fishing and like to create great memories. He has put me onto giant snook, tarpon, permit, grouper, even two sawfish! I have never been disappointed when fishing with Capt. Todd, and when done at the end of a day of fishing I begin planning to come back."
