Me and my husband chose this charter because it was smaller, we were celebrating our 10 yr anniversary and had never been deep sea fishing. It was more then we expected, the other couple ended up canceling so it was just us, which was awesome! Captain Rodney and Ben were great, very helpful and informative. We caught about 20 fish in all only 3 keepers, but we each got to reel in a shark which was so fun! They also provide everything you need for fishing and they clean and filet your keeper fish, the price was the best we found. We would highly recommend these guys to everyone, in fact we already gave the number to the hotel clerk where we were staying. Thank you so much we had a blast! We are already planning another trip.

Full day private charter today with a great group. We had a successful trip catching a number of red snapper, king mackerel and Ling/Cobia. Could not ask for better weather and seas less then a foot. Read Full Report →
