Absolutely a fantastic experience, thoroughly recommend!! Captain Phil is awesome and very knowledgable. Within 30 mins we were on the king mackerel. 6-7 caught 20-30lbs. Many more strikes and lots of action throughout the 4 hour trip. The boat is great, the captain and mate are both awesome. If you are in or around Naples do look up Captain Phil - you will not be disappointed!!

Excellent trip! Capt. Phil and first mate Tim both made the trip a great experience. We did a full day trip so they took us about 45 miles offshore to a wreck. We immediately caught fish including a 25 inch yellowtail snapper. I asked about goliath grouper and before i knew it the captain had pulled out a thick rod,  hooked a 2 1/2 pound bait and told me to get ready! My first goliath weighed ~150 lbs and made for some great pics. He told me thats a baby and rebaited for another. w/in 10 min I had another monster on this one was over 300lbs. Made for great photos. We came home with over 30 snapper/grouper/ kings to eat. Would highly recommend this charter without reservation. Randy D
