My first trip tarpon fishing trip in Boca Grande Florida was a GREAT experience thanks to Captain Andrew.  I brought along my 13 year old son and it was an exciting day.  We saw lots of fish.  Starting the day on the beach, Captain had me hooked up with in 15 mins of fishing in the first spot.  I think we hooked 5 or 6 fish total.  After having a bad experience with another charter service at the beginning of our vacation, I am happy that I found Andrew and didn’t leave empty handed.  Cant wait till next year!

All I can say is WOW!  I have been fishing all my life but this was my first catch over 100lbs!  Fishing for goliath grouper was exciting.  I knew it was going to be a challenge but he had us hooked up with in the first hour of fishing.  GREAT equipment/ fishing tackle.  He had a very comfortable fishing/ fighting seat that gave me an advantage against the fish.  His rods and reels were in like new condition and easy to operate!  I am already looking forward to my next vacation to Florida!
