Background
I've been fishing with my dad and grandparents since I was probably old enough to hold a fishing pole. I have fished in Key West Savannah Georgia the Gulf of Mexico all the way to California I've even been to Hawaii fishing so I really enjoy fishing I love to watch people catch fish hope to see you on the water soon.
Techniques
I love to go and catch live bait for my customers so that we have a better chance of catching bigger fish. And it's also an experience for them to watch and help catch their own bait for the fishing trip for the day. And the kids always love it when we drag the shrimp net and the Dolphins come up. I like using live bait drift lining free lining with live bait is how you catch the bigger fish!

I booked a fishing trip two days prior to our desired fishing date for my husband and father in law for a Father’s Day gift. We messaged John Sullens the day before to confirm and to check on fishing license and did get a response as if everything was good to go. My husband and father in law woke up, arrived at 6:20, departure was 7:00. John was not at the meeting point so he was messaged and his response was that he was not going to take them fishing. There was no reason given, no other arrangements made, just a reimbursement of our deposit. Fishing booker only offered $20 off of another charter. This was a complete waist of their time and to not given ANY notice of cancellation is not how any business should run.

I had never been fishing before so I was really scared.  Cpt John showed me how hold the rod and release the bait down to catch the biggest red snapper of the day. Capt John is a great guy and has a passion for fishing and for the waters. What an awesome trip..

Fishing booker did not notify captain until 4:30am on date of trip. I made the reservation 2 weeks in advance. When we called the captain from the dock he said he had a full boat and could not take us. I will never use fishing booker again. Now we will see how long it will take to get my $90.00 back.
