"Half Day Trip - Wrecks and Reefs"

Richard Cort fished with Kekoa Charters on January 22, 2020

Captain Doc definitely put us on top of fish resulting in a great variety including Yellowtail Snapper, King Mackerel, Grouper and others. Great day and a lot of fun with Captain Doc and Georgie.

"3/4 Day trip with Captain Patrick "

Kevin Deaton fished with La Costa Charters on December 29, 2019

My family and I had a fabulous day with Captain Patrick and Parker! They did an excellent job making sure we were at the right spot to catch fish. And catch, we did. King mackerel, Spanish mackerel, grunts, and a hog fish, plus things we couldn't keep. Two thumbs for these great guys!!

"Great Day"

Rowdy Turner fished with Tarpon Tamer Fishing Charters on December 12, 2019

My son and I took a trip with Captain Phil and we had a blast. I am disabled with various spinal conditions and they were great with helping me and provided a smooth ride for us. We caught several species of fish including a 4 foot Barracuda and some King Mackerel. Definitely going again!!

Had great weather and a great trip. Caught several large Spanish and King Mackerel that the mate filleted and packaged. Also caught several other species while trolling and bottom fishing. Was going for another trip but ran out of time.
