The captains all have a strategy for the best outcome given everchanging weather conditions, and tides. They are not magicians. If the charter involves spinning gear, then KNOW how to use it BEFORE your trip !

Steve was the perfect choice for a morning charter for two novice anglers. He had us pulling up fish as soon as we arrived to our spot. Patient, professional, personable, and knowledgeable. We WILL use him again when we have friends or family visiting. Cannot recommend him highly enough.

The crew was welcoming, attentive and kept up with everyone's needs: introducing equipment and safety, bait, removing fish, replacing hooks, and kept us fishing. Captain Joe communicated clearly and kept us with the fish. Enjoyed the day. Many thanks to the captain & crew!

Captain Stephen was great on our trip. The fish weren’t biting as much as we would hope, but we still caught plenty of tasty fish, and he was constantly doing everything he could to keep moving to new spots to put us on fish. He was great with our 4 year old as well. All around awesome experience!

Capt Joe made this an adventure of a lifetime. As a fairly new fisher, he explained everything and knew the waters like nobodies business. It was an experience watching the mackerel jump and hooking three sharks. I will take my grandkids on the next adventure. 10 stars!

Little rough concerning weather but it changed throughout the trip and got better. Fishing also picked up and we caught lots of fish including quite a few hogfish and gag groupers. Plenty to eat on all week during our stay. Definitely recommend Brian and Jake! They worked very well with us and put us on really good fish. Thanks so much!

We booked the half day trip with Captain Jeff (1pm-4pm) and it was an absolute blast! Caught a ton of fish and Captain Jeff was excellent. He knew exactly where to go to get us on fish and was very knowledgeable about the local fishery. Definitely coming back next time we’re in St. Pete Beach. Couldn’t recommend a better Captain!

This was my 2nd charter with Captain Brian. This time was a girls from work trip. We had 5 fishing and everyone had a great time. Captain Brian and the first mate were very interactive with our group and we learned a lot about different species of fish. They both did an outstanding job in keeping our poles baited and making sure we were in a good spot to fish.

Not much was biting but we snagged a few… seemed like all boats had same issue. Took us to 3 spots to test the water in different places. Captain was knowledgeable and friendly. Nice boat, I would recommend sitting in the back for the bounce effect on the water. Thanks for the trip.
