Greg,

Just wanted to Thank You again for an awesome time.  Mickey and I couldn’t stop talking about it on the ride back.  You were great as a Guide informing us on what to do making us feel at ease without it feeling uncomfortable. You were easy to talk with and we found you to be an EXCELLENT guide putting us and keeping us on the fish the entire time you are a Great Representative for TEAM SHIMANO. I was able to look at some of the pictures and videos I did get Mickey’s Tarpon almost jumping into the other guys boat.  As soon as I can figure out how to send it over to you I will.  Thanks again for an AWESOME time.  We were already taking about doing it again.

To all fishermen/fisherwomen experienced or not. I want to tell you about the Fisher King Greg DeVault
as spoken by one of his disciples James D.
I have been fishing with Greg for 5 years now and can honestly say that I have never had a better Guide
than Greg. If there are fish to be found Greg will find them. It is not unusual to move 10 to 15 times if
the fish are scarce. WE ALWAYS CATCH FISH!
Greg’s knowledge of the water is only one aspect of a great guide. He is entertaining and educational. I
have learned fishing techniques, knot tying and other tidbits of info that are invaluable on my own boat.
Greg’s best attribute though is his personality. From the time you step on Greg’s boat you know you
have made a new friend. He has wide ranging experience in a number of fields and the conversation
flows naturally throughout the day.
At the end of a trip with Greg you feel that you have just spent a great day palling around with your best
buddies .
You will not be disappointed in the total experience.
James D Andrews, Avid Fisherman

In 2010, two of my friends and I booked a trip with Captain Greg (3 half day’s tarpon fishing the pass in Boca Grande).  The only bad thing about this trip was only fishing with Greg for half of the day.  Upon my arrival back home, I knew that I would return in 2012.  Within two weeks I had booked again, this time three full days.  My two friends and I caught numerous tarpon ranging from 60 to 180 lbs.  Fighting a fish like that is truly an experience of a lifetime.  Greg worked his butt off keeping us on the tarpon, changing our lures and laughing at our stupid jokes, hell, he even let me buy lunch so that I didn’t feel cheap. His ability to maneuver the boat and keep us on the fish was in itself amazing.  Greg was always very professional and treated all of us with great respect.  It was clear to us that he is well respected among the other guides in the Boca Grande area.  I would recommend booking a trip with him to anyone who wants a good workout fighting one of these magnificent fish.  Thanks again Greg, hope to see you again on the Florida tide.

I am from Indiana, and I met Captain Greg in 2004. Since then I fly down and fish with him almost every month. He has fished with over 20 of my friends and family. He has watched my youngest grow up to be a nurse, while first fishing with her at the age of 14. I strongly encourage you to go fishing with him once and you will get hooked. He is very patient and will put you on fish every time. I have never been skunked. But more importantly he knows this area very well and will show you a great time. Some times the bite will start late and he keeps going through-out the bite. He loves what he does. When I retire I have Captain Greg in my monthly budget.

I have been booking fishing and hunting trips with Captain Greg for years, and I have to say he is the best prepared most knowledgeable, and best pure sportsman guide I have experienced.  I have fished and hunted all over the world, and I have been with some of the most famous guides you see on TV, and they just don’t hold up the standard that Greg delivers.  I now just take Greg with me on trips instead of hiring local guides.  Plus, he is so much more than a guide, he is a friend, great conversationalist, and, when needed, a nurse.  I have a chronic health condition, Greg on his own, learned about my condition and makes a point of checking up on me on our trips.  I have brought my 75 year old father on trips.  He has a new knee and hip, and Greg always finds an easy spot to board and unboard him from the boat.  Beyond the fact that he is a truly the best professional guide, it is this little extra things that makes Greg a worlds above the rest!  Book him and enjoy!
