Great day, would definitely book with Capt Colby again. We didn’t have the best weather and Colby busted his butt to make sure we had a great day, which we did!

Fabulous day on the water. Great guys, informative and good with both experienced and non-experienced customers. Weather was windy and slightly cool, so fish were not very active today. Even so, we caught a variety of fish and had a great time.

We had a great Father and sons day, all made better with Captain Colby , a really tallented captain and most of all a true fishermen. Tide or weather he knows where and how to fish, others can only copy his watercraft and local knowledge.  So when we come again , no question who we’ll call. Thanks from all the Naylor Boys. ..A red letter day.

The day started out catching a huge cobia on the first cast of the day. Capt. Colby and Chase were great keeping us on fish and helping us catch them. You could tell Colby loves to fish and enjoys helping others. He and Chase were pleasant and made sure we caught fish and had a great time doing it. I would highly recommend this charter and crew. One of my greatest fishing experience.

My wife, son and myself went out on June 27th.  We had an absolute blast. Even on a slow day Colby was able to get us hooked on some solid winners.  He was very friendly and knowledgeable!  I would most definitely book with him again!

This was an absolutely incredible experience!  Colby is truly a great fisherman and unbelievably knowledgeable.  It was clear from the very beginning how passionate he is and how committed he was to ensuring that we had an exceptional experience.  He was extremely attentive, sociable, thoughtful and certainly provided us with an experience that far surpassed our expectations.

I really wanted to have a great day of Fishing for my Son and I on Father’s day.  The entire experience was Awesome.  The Boat was early and waiting for us when we arrived. Very clean, we’ll stocked with Bait & Tackle. The Captain definitely knew the good spots to hit and we caught several different species of fish. He was extremely helpful preparing the rods and getting the fish unhooked. I will definitely book Homegrown again and highly recommend them.

This was by far the best fishing experience we’ve had aboard a charter. A six hour day, we show up at the dock and Captain Coby and firstmate Dillion are ready to roll with a lot of bait. We head out about 17 miles and troll for a little with nothing, move to another spot with not a single bite! We move to another location and BAM we are on the fish. It was non-stop action for four hours of nice fish, Kings, Groupers and Snapper. These two guys had all they could do to keep our lines bated and pull fish off.  Not only did they put us on fish but the two guys have great personalities and make you feel at home. They were not there to just take us fishing, they were there to get us to catch fish and a lot of them which they did. We caught our limit and still threw back numerous keepers.  We would recommend Home Grown Charters to anyone, they will get you on the fish and never run out of bait!!!  Their day started at 5am to catch the bait we used and ended with cleaning 50+ pounds of fish for us around 4pm, all for a six hour payday…  Thank you Home Grown Charters for the great experience and memories and we will definitely be back!!!
