Background
Captain John was born in Saint Petersburg, Florida. As the youngest of four, and the only boy in the family, he used to escape the chaos at home by spending every day in his personal paradise - Tampa Bay. He began fishing as a six year old, and would spend all day out on the water, often getting in trouble for staying out past dinner time. This led to the company’s tagline: ‘Fish Till You Drop!’. His love of fishing continued into his teens, and after a career in IT, he decided to leave the corporate world behind to become a Professional Charter Captain. He loves living his dream every day out on the water, and strives to provide all his customers with the greatest fishing experience.

While on vacation from Missouri, we booked a charter with Fishing Buddy Charters. I went with my son, a friend of his from school, and my brother-in-law. Captain John was very friendly, knowledgeable, and instructive. We had a great time and caught some nice big fish. We’ll definitely be looking Captain John up again the next time we need a charter

Mike was like a friend from to minute we shook hands. Plenty of bait, big knowledge of the area. Fish on at the very first stop, I think both of use hit on first cast. We caught enough Snook to loose count. Progressive effort for size but not too progressive.

Mike was a winner, the professional up front contacts, and directions I had never seen. He texted to say he was running late trying to get bait, but he was still at the dock a few minutes early. If the weather would have been better we would have gone out again before we left Florida.

I have been on a lot of deep sea trips but had more fun and got to fish much longer on this one. Already planning the next trip with him.

Capt. John I want to thank you for a very good time, my grandson had so much of a good
time the next time he comes down he wants to go out again. I myself had a good time, you
made us feel comfortable and both you and your wife were so friendly. You and your wife are very good people
The experience I had with you makes we want to take up fishing again. Thank you again and I am definitely
keeping this email address and when my grandson comes down we will be getting in touch with you.

THANK YOU

We had a great day on the water and Captain John did a great job putting us on as many fish as possible. We also saw a lot of interesting creatures while fishing.
