I have been fishing my entire life. Fishing is my passion and as my wife says obsession. I spend all my time on the water or in it. If I'm not fishing I'm probably hunting.

Me, my good friend, my daughter and her friend went on a scalloping charter with Captain Woody and his deck hand, we had a awesome time, got several buckets of scallops and thoroughly enjoyed our day on the boat and in the water. I would highly recommend his Charters.

Weather was not ideal and the fishing was slow, but Captain Woody worked hard to make the trip successful. Managed a but of junk fish to fight and three keeper Reds and two Flounder.
Always a fun day with Fish On Florida Charters!
