I have known and fished with Capt. Rapps in the 10,000 islands for many years. Never have I had a guide who has such an organized boat and great equipment.  He always has the latest and greatest top gear to get the job done right. I have seen Capt. Rapps gather the best live bait after just a couple of fantastic cast net throws, and off we were for many productive days of fishing. On more than one occasion, he has personally put me on to 40+ snook in a single day!

I am a Keys fisherman, and when I want a change of pace to catch backwater fish, I call Capt. Rapps for some quality catching. He knows his stuff.

I have had the opportunity to enjoy Captain Pete Rapps on several occasions as a fishing guide out of Chokoloskee. Each time is a new and exciting experience. Captain Pete is an excellent guide who truly knows the back waters of the area and where the good spots are to catch fish. On different occasions I have caught Snook, Redfish, Goliath Grouper, Snapper, and chased a few Tarpon. Pete is very patient with his students and is always helpful in setting up the rods and reels as well as suggesting bait to use in different areas. He has all the necessary equipment for a fun packed day of success.
