"6 hour trip with Matt!"

Breanna Burkett fished with 85O Charters – 26' on November 23, 2020

We had a great time catching King Mackerel, red snapper, and flounder with Captain Matt! We have plenty to feed the family while on vacation and still take some home. Thanks again!

"4 hour trip"

Joseph Duke fished with Just Reel on October 17, 2020

We had a great time fishing with Captain Josh. My son had a blast reeling in the King Mackerel. We will definitely be repeat clients.

"6 hour trip"

David Warfield fished with High Cotton Charters on October 14, 2020

We had a great time fishing with TJ and Tyler! We caught a lot of fish...Bonita, Vermillion Snapper, Spanish Mackarel, King Mackeral, and some pretty big sharks! The boat had a nice air conditioned cabin if you wanted a reprieve from the heat and TJ and Tyler were very family oriented! We would definitely book with them again!

"Half-day trip with Capt. Mike and Andy"

John Mcnemar fished with My Chance Charters on August 14, 2020

Bottom fishing didn't provide any keepers, but trolling was excellent. Spanish and King Mackerel, with plenty of Bonita's brought on board. Andy's "fish dance" was a hit and worked to get fish on the lines. Good time, great weather, would fish with them again.

"Half Day with Larry. "

John Svensen fished with Living Right Fishing Charters on August 4, 2020

Larry is friendly and great with the kids. He has a lot of knowledge with the waters. He can put you on a lot of varieties of fish. Caught some nice King Mackerel today.

"4hr trip"

Wes Harrison fished with King of Kings Charters on August 1, 2020

We highly enjoyed ourselves on the King of Kings. The boat is a tad small but it didn’t bother us at all. The first mate and the trainee were great as was the captain. Unfortunately the fish didn’t cooperate as much as we would have liked but we had a great time.
