What People Are Saying About King Mackerel (Kingfish) Fishing in Florida

"A spectacular Day with Captain Eden"

Ron Chapman fished with Captain Eden - Great White on September 18, 2018

He was very attentive and determined we would have a bountiful fishing adventure! A bull and cow dolphin/mahi-mahi, as well as two king fish caught within a four hour trip, and a couple more great catches we decided to release. Thank you Captain Eden, we enjoyed your personality and you truly proved your skillfulness!

"6hr Combo Trip with Captain Mark"

fished with Better Lost Than Found Charters on September 13, 2018

Great Boat. Great Fishing. Great Experience, very knowledgeable and got onto fish quick. Started trolling caught the King and 2 Spanish mackerels, then went onto bottom fishing and caught Beeliners (Vermillion Snapper), and White snapper plus ~20+ other fish, mainly Red snapper, too bad they were out of season. Highly recommend Better Lost Than Found Charters and Captain Mark.
