         “Just got back from fishing the beautiful river with Capt. Brian. We had a great time. We caught 5 snook, a handful of redfish, several trout, and even snapper. My arms are totally worn out! There are several guides that do this here I’m sure they are all good. If you’re in Vero for a few days don’t miss out on the fishing. It’s soooo worth it.

        After you fish don’t forget about the restaurant that you have to walk thru to get there. That place is incredible. I think it was called Riverside or something. The food is outstanding and the drinks were so justified after a long day of fishing with Brian. This place even cooked our fish for us!! We came back later that night for happy hour cause we loved it so much. We were not surprised that the place was packed with locals. They told us this is where everybody goes. So not only did we have a great fishing trip we also got to enjoy a great dinner right on the water. Don’t miss if you’re in Vero Beach.”
