Background
I started fishing with my father when I was 3 or 4 years old. I immediately loved the whole feeling of being outdoors and enjoying all the cool things the world has to offer while fishing. There is so much more to fishing than holding a fish!

I love all types of saltwater fishing, trolling, bottom fishing, free lining, sight casting, stealth approach, and even cruising.

Captain Brett went way beyond what he had to, to make our experience the best fishing trip. We were catching red snapper, black snapper, and king mackerel when nobody else seemed to be. Thanks Brett for an excellent trip and I can’t wait to come back and do it again!!!!!

My son and I recently spent two incredible days with Captain Brett…words can’t truly reflect the amazing time we had and the experience that will last a lifetime.  Captain Brett more than exceeded our expectations - we are coming back for more in May (it was that incredible).

It was as though we became family from the moment we stepped on board…I couldnt imagine being on a charter with anyone other than his.

He is a teacher, role model, leader, inspiring, patient, kind, loyal and so much more!!!!  I could literally write word after word from our experience…thank you again for making my time with my son unforgettable—-SEE YOU IN MAY!!!!!

This trip was set up as a gift for my mother’s birthday and Capt Brett gave us a gift she would always remember. He was extremely accommodating as this was the first charter we had ever taken. He baited hooks, removed fish from hooks, rigged lines, and made this trip a stress-free event for my family. I highly recommend Capt Brett and will utilize him every time we go on a fishing trip. Thanks for everything Capt Brett.

P.S. You can copy my playlist if you’d like.

I went out with my Dad on Grouper Trooper charters and we had a blast!!! We caught a variety of fish including red snapper, triggerfish, amberjack, bonita, and a BEAST of a cobia. We saw lots of boats in the water, but WE were catching fish. Captain Brett Tennant won’t just take you for a boat ride and then say “well guess they aint biting” He’s obsessed with making sure you’re having a good time filling the cooler.
If you’re a serious fisherman…book this guy NOW!
I cant wait till next summer so we can go slay’em again

We had a great time! We caught a modest amount of fish, but it was a good variety. The captain was courteous, likable and took good care of us. We’d certainly go fishing with him again!

Capt. Brett always manages to put us on some good fishing and find us some great fish for dinner.  Boat is always clean and ready to go and his attitude is one of the best out there.  I use his charter service often as a “mental Health” day from work, or to take my girls out and let them experience some “Tight Lines” !  I would whole heartedly recommend Capt. Brett and Grouper Trooper Fishing Charters.

I’m a bodybuilder and my entire body was too tired to continue from catching so many big fish. We had an 8 hour trip, only made it 4. Great Capt. No better experience anywhere.

Fishing booker was very responsive and informative.The boat was nice and well equipped. We had made arrangements to go deep sea fishing with Captain Brett but stayed in the bay area and fished at docks from the boat with a totally different captain (Captain Matt). No one caught anything accept bait for the boat (2 very small fish). It felt like a waste of time and money considering it costs $620(with tip).  I feel that we were misinformed and it should have been done right the 1st time. Maybe the Captain should have suggested a better day to go out during our vacation. Not sure what was the deal.  None of us were happy with this trip unfortunately. I have been on other charters in the past all have been VERY successful! So please dont let this review discourage you from chartering a deep sea fishing trip! Just maybe do a bit more research. Happy Fishing!

Ok well sorry you felt that way, unfortunately you can not control mother nature.  The water reports were bad the weekend you were here and we even backed the trip up a day and delayed the time to start to even make sure you got to go out at all.  I was booked for the day and captain matt runs lots of trips for me and we have caught alot of fish and have lots of happy customers.  You also forgot to mention that one of you got sick and the trip had to be ended early due to sea sickness.  A bad review can hurt a business and i know that so to make up for your misfortune of weather i offered very kindly to give you a free trip. Customer satisfaction is a very big deal to me and i live my life and provide for my family through this.  Sometimes the weather does not give you the opportunity for a perfect day so you try and make due.  Also i offered to return your deposit and cancel the trip since we could not go offshore and you agreed to go in the bay anyways.  We did our best given the circumstances.  Please keep us in your considerations for another trip and we will put you on the fish as we have been doing for years.  Thank you for your business
