The captain and deck hand were very professional and extremely knowledgeable about the fish we caught and how to catch them. The rods,reels, and the tackle we used was very well taken care of. The captain was very good at finding the fish.it was a great day of fishing with capt. Gabe and his crew.

Best fishing charter I’ve been on hands down. The boat (36’ Contender) was beautiful. Very comfortable fishing area and ride even with the six people we had fishing. The captain was very polite and knowledgeable. Kept us on fish all day, all we had to do was enjoyed the beautiful Florida weather around family and friends!

I absolutely recommend these guys. You won’t be disappointed!

Had a great time fishing with these guys! They were a top notch crew in every way and taught us the basics even though we have hardly any experience. Captain Gabe was very patient with us.  The boat was amazing and well kept (and fast= more time fishing) we hooked up several Mahi and had a great time. We will definitely book again when in Panama City. You won’t be disappointed!
