Went out for my birthday, I wanted to go nearshore fishing to catch fish to eat.  I talked with Captain Andrew and we choose the best day for the nicest conditions.  All his fishing gear was like new and well maintained.  His boat was comfortable to fish and ride on.  It was a great day with a lot of bites.  Those amberjack have a lot of power.  Went home with plenty of fish to feed us for a few weeks. Amberjack, Lane and Mangrove Snapper plus a few Red Grouper.  Thanks Captain Andrew!

The fishing started off slow for the day. The fish were around and just didnt want to cooperate. Captain Andrew said that once the sun started to shine they will start biting. Boy was he right. Hooking up to monster amberjacks on topwater is an experience i will never forget. I will definately be going out with Big Bully again. I’ve fished with other captains before and had no where near the amount of fun nor action as Capt Andrew has showed me.

Went out with Captain Andrew while on vacation to check out the area.  I was interested in purchasing a place on Charlotte Harbor and wanted to check out surrounding waters.  It was a great experience, Captain Andrew was on time in a very nice boat, with live bait already caught for the day.  It was spacious and clean.  A dry storage locker was available for our belongings and a cooler for drinks and our lunches. 

Fishing was great.  We caught countless snook and trout.  On the way in we caught some really nice redfish.  It was my first time fishing for these and they REALLY put up a fun fight.  Already having a few trout in the cooler, so I decided to release them.  At the end of the trip Capt Andrew was able to show me the property I was looking to buy, but from the water.  It was interesting and educational and I really felt that I learned a lot about the area.  Looking forward to fishing with him again this spring.
