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

"A Great Day on the Water With Capt Garrison Rosie"

Joseph Morgan fished with Reel Rosie Charters on July 18, 2018

Storms were rolling in off the coast making conditions less than ideal, but this did nothing to keep Capt Garrison from finding big fish. We had the reels screaming from the beginning catching redfish (which currently smell delicious in my oven) snapper and a freezer full of king mackerel. The next time we are down we will no doubt have him take us back out again!

"July fishing trip"

Thomas Lively fished with Off The Hook Charters on July 17, 2018

6 hour charter. Captain Cory put us on the Red Snapper early and we had out limit by 9 am. Filled out our time catching beline snapper, mangrove snapper, amd a nice King Mackeral. First mate Robbie kept your line baited and you entertained. Had a great day with my brother and 88 year old Dad who outfished us all. Highly recomend Off The Hook Charters, Thanks Captain Cory

"Fishing with Bryan"

John Hoskins fished with Southern Thunder Charters on July 17, 2018

We had a great time and definitely recommend Southern Thunder. Captain Bryan put us on fish and we limited out on King Mackerel. He is local and is knowledgeable and was very patient and accommodating with my two boys.
