Our Captain met us on time, ready to go. He had us all setup to catch redfish and snook in less than 1/2 an hour, and we were getting bites until an ignorant boater motored in less than 20 yards from us and scared our school of finning reds away. Nobody around for miles and this knucklehead pulls up right next to us to hit our chummed up fish. He was such an idiot he even pointed to schools of Reds leaving the area, more boaters pulled in and within 30 minutes there were 17 boats all close enough to us to throw a beer at. We caught nothing but two small hammerheads all morning, we moved several times and each time other boats would swarm us just hoping we knew what we were doing. Ended up getting shutout and fished the docks on the way back but no luck. Brought back nothing for dinner. The Captain was great and I would recommend him again, you just can’t account for what other boaters will do on the water sometimes.

We had a Great time with Capt Chris over the weekend and my father in-law Jack. The weather was super and we fished in calm water. Really enjoyed the catch and release action all morning and Jack could not have been Happier!

Although we did not have much luck in catching any fish on our trip, Captain Chris Taylor was absolutely lovely. We went to Shell Key Island and had a lovely despite the fact that the fish were not biting!
