2 old English men went out with Capitain Bart. We went out 25 miles and got fish including
a 180lb Bull Shark. Capitain Bart worked so hard all day, he never stopped….. Forget the rest… Capitain Bart is the best…....

Hey thanks for the business Justin. I appreciate you coming across the pond to fish with me. You guys did very well. Mangrove and yellowtail snapper and other assorted reef fish as well as some kingfish and a nice shark fight. Very productive 4 hour trip. Thanks again!

I booked this trip for my sons 16th birthday.  Had five family members along, including my 14 year old daughter, all of us with different fishing skills. I was excited to learn we were headed out 25 miles on a half day trip.  Captain Bart certainly knows it’s worth the travel to get the good fish. He kept everyone fishing…and catching.  My son hauled in a 28lb Black Fin Tuna, I hauled in a 45lb King Mac, one of us lost a monster Gag Grouper to a shark that wanted him more than we did…made for a great story and pic.  We head to St Pete every year.  I have fished all over the gulf coast.  I wish I would have found Bart years ago.  Will be back down and spend another day fishing with him.  We couldn’t have had a better day on the water. What a memorable day for my son’s 16th birthday! Thanks Captain!

Hey Kerry, thank you for a great review and a great trip. You guys were a blast! There’s always a little extra pressure when I know it’s a birthday trip but, the fish gods came through for us. Days like this are the reason I love what I do. It’s not always about catching the biggest or the most fish, it’s also about having a great time with family and making memories that last a lifetime. In this case we definitely managed to get a few fish in the boat as well. Great trip with a wonderful family, I look forward to seeing you next year! Thank again, Bart.

Even though a lot of species were out of season we caught quite a few kings. We returned grouper back to the water, as well as some others. Had a great time. Capt. Bart was very informative, and instructed our 3 teens in some of the finer points of fishing as well as preparing your lines. Even the adults learned some new things. Capt. Bart has a great personality and takes great pleasure in his customers catching fish. Great trip- highly recommend!

Thank you Denny. It was a real pleasure having your crew in board. We had a great day and landed quite a few species and a limit of kings for five. It’s awesome to see three generations of family out there fishing and making memories. I look forward to seeing you again soon.
