Captain Johnny is a great guy that really cares about his clients and insures their fishing experience is the best. I can’t say enough good things about today’s trip with my son.

I’ve fished many charters over the years and I can honestly say this was the best by far. Nothing even close. Our group consisted of myself, my son and his friend, both teenage boys. Captain Johnny got us right on the fish, and explained everything as we went along. Catching amazing fish is always great, but the fact that from the minute we got in the boat it was like we were a group of friends fishing was unbelievable. Captain Johnny made sure we had the best bait, tackle and instruction you could ask for. We’ve already booked another trip next month.

Being from MN & having a house in FL. that I travel to in the winter I have chartered many fishing captains to take me out for a day of fishing while I was down there. My experience with Capt’n Johnny
was the most enjoyable trip I have had to date. I took 2 of my kids with me the day we booked him &
they also had a great experience. Capt’n Johnny did the little things that made them feel comfortable right from the start from working with them on how to set the hook, how the specific fish react to baits, how they fight on the way back to the boat even helping them experience how to bait their own hooks correctly, if they wanted to, otherwise, he was always there to have it done so we did not miss a minute of fishing. He took us out for 3 specific species of fish & we caught all 3, including hooking up on 2 Goliath’s. We booked him for 6 hrs & he kept us out longer as he seen how much fun we were having & he did not have anything booked after we were done, thanks Skip!
How many people can say they tripled on Snook? In his pictures you can see the 2 kids with theirs, obviously he must have thought I didn’t deserve to be in the pic. Overall a 12 out of 10 for Capt’n Johhny. Extremely knowledgeable, very personable, & all around a great guy. I am going back down in late January with 6 guys on a fishing trip & already have him booked to go out again. Lastly a veteran that served multiple tours in Iraq for our country!
