Have a question? Wanna talk about it? Well say HELLO!


A picture is worth a thousand words, they say. Check out all our words!


FISH GOAT is guide service inspired by a kid who used to hang around the Hurricane Hole in the Keys where Bettie and I used to spend some winters.  Simply put, the kid was a die hard fishing fanatic.  Up at dawn, we never beat him to the water, he would fish in any weather out of this tiny beat up old boat every chance he got without letting school, weather or life interfere in any way.


I'd like to connect with FISH GOAT GUIDE SERVICE, please!
