“I have fished all over the world with dozens of different guides, and Capt. John Kumiski would have to rate as one of the best. He is knowledgeable, patient, and skillful. My son and I will never forget catching in one morning on fly rods two redfish weighing a total of 40 pounds.”                       -Michael Barnett

Deposits and Cancellations

I require a deposit to hold a day or days. I accept a check (made out to John Kumiski, please, and mailed to 284 Clearview Road, Chuluota, FL 32766) for half the daily rate per day, or you can pay a $200 deposit for each of your day(s) at the PayPal link below.

Cancellation Policy

More than 30 days notice- no charge.

30 days to 15 days notice- $100.00.

14 or fewer days notice- entire deposit.

No shows- full day’s charge.

Weather Days

I won’t cancel days for a weather forecast. The weatherman is often wrong! If we show up at the dock and the weather is bad the angler makes the call as to whether we cancel or not. I hate losing work days to bad weather but that’s part of my business. I’ve had too many fishermen tell me horror stories about guides who made them fish in bad conditions, and I don’t want to be one of those stories.

I treat you the way I would want to be treated. It’s just like I tell my wife- When you’re happy, I’m happy!
