I started fishing at the age of 4 and I was hooked! I have been fortunate to fish with and learn from some of the best charter and commercial fisherman along the Gulf Coast.

Overall an absolutely top-notch experience for myself and 4 friends. Captain Butch and Joe were extremely friendly, helpful and committed to making our 6-hour charter the great experience that it was. Both Butch and Joe were great to talk to and in addition to being quick to help constantly provided tips, information and encouragement to a couple of guys who had never done this type of fishing before.
A couple of us are going to start planning for a tuna charter with Butch at some time in the future.
Butch is the first guy that I would recommend for any type of fishing charter, you’ll thank yourself for it!
