Brian "Bucky" Goldman

Member since February 2015

Orlando, United States

Background
I have been fishing the waters of Florida since the age of 5. Fishing is and will always be my passion.
Techniques
I prefer to slowly poling around the flats looking for fish to sight cast to. Noting is more exciting that being able to sneak up on fish and entice them into striking. I can accommodate anglers of all skill level from novice to highly skilled anglers. I love throwing artificial, because you can cover so much more ground as opposed to fishing with live bait. With children I like to use live or cut bait. That way they can relax and enjoy themselves. I am willing to do whatever it takes to put fish in the boat. If I have to push pole for miles or steak out and wait for the fish to come to us. I am also prepared to switch from one method to the next. Regardless of how we are fishing I know you will have an excellent time with me.

Capt. Bucky took me out for a full day today. We caught everything we targeted including a monster sized Trout. We instantly clicked and he was a joy to spend the day with. Very easy to get along with , and a great captain and coach. Taught me some tricks of the trade and was super accommodating . Highly recommend ! I will definitely go out on the water again with Capt Bucky.

Not really a good trip.  Felt the Capt care more about his prefer about catch and release.  We caught lots of catfish.  Why he the (Capt) never tried to at a minimum go for black drums?

Thank you for the review, I’m sorry you felt this way. I tried extremely hard to find you fish. We went to five different spots and caught two very nice over-slot redfish, and pulled the hook on two others. I do care about catch and release, as any good Captain should. I did tell you that I was willing to keep fish for you, unfortunately the ones we caught were too big. The black drum have not really shown up this year, and after speaking to you my understanding was that you wanted to target redfish. The weather was absolutely beautiful.  Lastly, I offered you a discount at the end of the trip because you did not seem content.

I also had a great time with you both today. That was by far the biggest fish I have caught on a charter. Thanks for the memories!

We had a great time with Captain Bucky.  A good guide can’t guarantee fish but he should work to find them.  We had terrible weather but it didn’t dampen his enthusiasm.  We still released an exceptional number of reds and trout.  It would be hard to say who had more fun.  Good stuff.

It was a great experience and would go again. Captain Bucky was a great person and knew where to go and how to find the fish. We were there for about 5 hours and ended the day with 10 Red Fish. I went out by myself and he had plenty of time to help me.The mosquito lagoon was bigger than I had imagined and it was well worth the money to find someone that was had so much knowledge and a great guide.

Capt. Bucky Goldman of Bag’em fishing charters was first rate!!!! He knew where to go, he put us on the fish, and it was a VERY VERY pleasant charter. We were EXTREMELY SATISFIED with ALL facets of the charter and look forward to fishing with this Capt. very soon. I would rate his charter as an A+A+A+A+ attached a couple of the fish Capt. Bucky put us on.
