Went fishing on Thursday, June 8, 2017

Did not catch any Redfish, did not target anything other than Bluefish.  It seemed that he tried but once his plan didn’t pan out the day went south.  And he claimed that there was a miss communication about us booking a 5 hour trip vs him thinking it was a 4 hour trip.  He did not charge us the extra hour but I was disappointed that no other fish were actually targeted.  He did not have any other bait available to target anything but Redfish, when that plan went south we drove around a lot.  Overall it was a waste of money and time I wish I would have went another direction.  Two fish hence two stars, and that is generous.

Overall was a good trip. Captain Joey tried his best to get us on the fish but it was a busy evening on the water in the Bay.

We had a great day on the water! Captain Joey was extremely helpful with my son and knew just where to find the fish on a tough day. Personable and easy going, we will be booking our future Florida fishing trips exclusively with Panhandle Fishing Charters:) It was truly a FUN experience!

Captain Joey is the very best!  He gave us constant attention and made sure we caught fish and had a great fishing trip!  He keeps a very clean and safe boat.  We are in our 60s and it was so nice to be treated with so much respect and kindness.  He kept us fishing for red fish and it was fun.  My husband brought in a 30 pounder and I had one entered into the fishing rodeo.  He fileted the fish and we took it directly to Dewey Destin’s and had it grilled!  We appreciate Captain Joey and his professionalism!  Don’t miss out on a great fishing trip!

The Capt worked very hard to locate the fish when other boats were struggling.  He knew waters very well and put on King Mackerel which are a blast to catch.  I would highly recommend Panhandle Fishing Charters and we plan to book with him next year on our vacation.
