Captain Austin went above and beyond to make the trip happen. Weather was bad and he still got us some fun fishing. I would book with him again.

What a fantastic trip. Booked the charter last minute and Captain Austin was fantastic. Called about an hour after booking confirmation to review where the departure point was and what to bring. Once we got the there he was all ready so all we had to do was get in the boat and go. My son was super excited to be going on a proper fishing trip. Captain Austin explained the type of fish we’d be after and the current environment (low tide, shallows etc). First stop to fish I got a snook but my son couldn’t land one so the captain was quick to move us to another spot. There my son landed a Jack which was awesome because it was a fish that he really wanted to get so everything after that was just icing on the cake. We went to a third spot and it was rapid fire fish catching there. We were pulling in redfish and snook like crazy. Captain Austin always had baited lines in the water for us and really did a fantastic job. By the end I lost count how many we caught (I do know that my 7 year old ended up with more than I did!), but between my son and I it had to have been pushing over 20 fish. Caught trout, a Jack, redfish, and snook. All in all just a fantastic time. The captain was just great. Can’t wait to go again!
