I have been fishing with Matt Bowman for over 10 years. I have never met a more conscientious, ambitious or skilled fisherman in my world travels. I had the pleasure of fishing with Matt in Kona, Hawaii as well as 3 seasons he spent running my boat in Madeira, Portugal. I can't recommend someone more highly not only as a fisherman but as someone that I would want to spend 8+hrs a day chasing gamefish with my family and friends.

I have been fishing with Captain Mat Bowman for a lot of years now -- in Hawaii, Portugal and Mexico . He is a great captain , and we always manage to find fish and, most importantly, have a super time. I will be fishing with Mat on Sweet Sadie just as soon as I can get to Kona!

I am a third generation fisherman originally from Vera Cruz, Mexico. I've known Sweet Sadie’s owner for years, and more recently Captain Mat Bowman. These guys are unbelievably passionate about fishing. Kona is by far my favorite place to fish -- it has just about everything. My wife and I are already booked on Sweet Sadie for three tournaments this year ...
