Super professional. We caught some beautiful reds that put up a great fight. Would definitely recommend him to anyone.

Captain Gary did a fantastic job putting us on some nice Reds and Trout, we got a bonus Snook and a Jack Crevalle. We were able to keep some for the table and released a couple of small ones. Our kids definitely had a great time. We had a couple of doubles too. Our daughter hooked something that we never got too see because it just ripped the drag and broke off. Definitely will go back and highly recommend Capt Gary.

Excellent fishing trip! We caught 7 trout and 5 reds. Captain Gary even cleans your fish, so we had an excellent dinner that night! We can’t wait to go again.

Captain Gary took my buddy and I on our first redfish trip and did he ever put us on the fish. Man, I can’t say enough about it. We had a great day. It was a blast. I love the fight that those reds put up! The boat and equipment are in awesome condition. The hospitality and knowledge of the waters was exceptional. I look forward to our next trip this year. Next time I am going to bring the wife and kids. I highly recommend Captain Gary to anyone looking for a great day of fishing with an honest professional! Thanks for the memories Gary!

Our experience with East Fla Fishing Charters and Captain Gary was the absolute best!  We caught quite a few fish (Redfish and Trout.)  Captain Gary definitely knows the waters and is a true professional!  We will definitely book with him again in the near future!

I had booked a day of fishing for my son (11 years old) and myself. My Intention
was to make a memory for my son. He enjoyed the day as well as excited about the catch. He
is still talking to his friends about his fishing trip. The “monster” trout we caught, unbelievable!
Gary was courteous, professional ,  and seemed very confident in all he did. I was amazed how such a young man knew so much about the sport of fishing. Kinda like being on one of those fishing shows.
Gary was wonderful with us as he baited our lines as well as casted. We are looking forward to booking another trip with him. I highly recommend East Coast to all, and do take photos to look back on.
