The father-son fishing duo has been in the fishing business for over 10 years now, and pride themselves in providing their guests with a high-quality charter experience, complete with an experienced crew, well-maintained, branded fishing gear and 4 boats to choose from, depending on your specific fishing preferences.

Captain Paul Smith has over 30 years of experience fishing the Nassau waterways. ‘Hunter’, a 42 foot Hatteras (the largest vessel of his fleet) features an air conditioned cabin as well as a toilet and shower on board, and is spacious enough to accommodate as many as 8 fishermen on board. Hunter is equipped with a single fighting chair for handling larger fish, and is decked out with a conventional range of marine electronics and navigational gear, such as GPS, fish finder, radio, as well as a multimedia system for your group’s enjoyment.

Nassau is a great place to catch some of the world’s most popular game fish species. Depending on the season, Captain Paul and the First Mate will take you searching for schools of Dorados (Mahi Mahi), Tuna, Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, Barracuda, Snapper, and a variety of other species frequenting the area. Captain Paul will supply your group with all the fishing gear for the trip, along with artificial bait, while drinks and fishing licenses for all are included in the overall trip price.

Booking with fishing booker was great. I used the chat feature and the assistance was prompt and knowledgeable. There was bad weather at the time of my trip and communication with captain Smith was very good. The crew on board were very professional and courteous

Had a great time.  Seas were rough but Captain Paul still managed to find good spots we could fish.  Keith worked very hard to keep fresh bait in the water.  Caught a nice mix of fish.

Great day on the water, however, we didn’t catch any fish, one barracuda. We had a very expensive boat ride.
