We did a day trip with Captain Tom and had a blast. The rain soaked us to the bone, but we fished on! Our target species eluded us, but Captain Tom did not disappoint. He put us on the fish and switched up tactics as needed to keep us on them. We’ll be back! Thanks Captain Tom!

He did an outstanding job! We cooked and ate a few the following day and there wasn’t a bone in any of the filets. Great job Tom! Absolutely recommend his charter to all fishermen out there!

We are 3 locals that brought along a visitor from Holland.  Could not have hoped for a better experience.  Hooked four sailfish and caught one.  Also landed on a school of Mahi and caught a large Kingfish.  We saw sea turtles, a large hammerhead, and a whale shark that dwarfed our boat.  Capt. Tom is easy going,made us feel at home, and shared fishing tips with us. That night we feasted on fish and enjoyed talking about one of the best fishing trips we ever had.

Captain Tom made this trip a great experience for me and my son. As novice fishermen, we needed his guidance and expertise to help us catch some fish. We had an afternoon trip and the prospects for catching fish seemed grim for us at the start but Tom found the spot that was rich with fish. My son started catching largemouth including a good sized one after an hour or so into the trip. I soon followed with my first catch. By the end of a cool March day, we had each caught five fish. Tom’s patience, knowledge and great tips made this afternoon trip an unforgettable experience. Thank you Tom.

Captain Tom is an excellent boatsman and has the mark of a true fisherman. He is genuine, helpful and courteous. Five of us went out with him and we all experienced the feel of a lunker fish on the other end of the line. Next time we have a chance to go charter fishing we will not go anywhere else!

If your looking for an avid outdoorsman to make your fishing trip a success, Captain Tom will make it happen.  His experience on the water will get you safely to the fishing grounds and back to the dock where you can brag about your catch.  His equipment and boat work perfect for the South Florida waters.  Don’t let the smaller boat fool you, it handled the seas really well and the entire trip was comfortable from you moment we took off!

Clarification on recommendation of this experience.  I did not know that the fish we caught were not edible due to mercury contamination.  Therefore we only had catch and release.  This was fine but, I may have chartered a different trip had I known.  I was hoping to catch supper. 

As it was we caught a few smaller fish and had a good day on the water.  Got to see some of the Everglades and a few alligators.  Capt. Tom was friendly and knew the waters well.

You can never blame the captain for you losing the fish and Tom had us on the Sailfish. We walked onto his boat with the ‘hope’ of catching a sailfish and we had two legitimate chances to catch one but could not get them to the boat. In the end we walked away with some really nice Mahi Mahi but more importantly we walked away with a great memory. Tom and his wife went above and beyond for us during this trip as we had a truly bad experience while visiting Fort Lauderdale, but they made sure that we ended this vacation on a very positive note. Whether you are looking for a family day on the water or you’re out with your buddies trying to catch the big one, you won’t find a better man for a captain. Thank you so much for being there for our family.

Capt Tom is very knowledgable and was a terrific host. He knew fishing was going to be tough based on his previous day’s experience and reports, so asked if we would be willing to meet him an hour plus north where he heard the bite was better.  Any captain willing to try to get his clients on fish by moving up the coast 60 miles and not just “hope” for better fishing locally shows his determination to make every trip the best it can be. I would certainly recommend Capt Tom.
