This guided experience was exactly what my boys needed.  Being new to fishing, they experienced all the ins & outs of fishing from a highly qualified captain.  Thank you for an amazing time on the water!

It was a great trip and caught many fish. Was a little disappointed we didn’t get any red fish, but that is fishing. We had a great time and would go again.

Had a great time with ya’ll excellent Fisherfolks. Looking forward to having ya’ll again. Thank you for the great review so glad you chose Central Florida Sport Fishing for your first salt water fishing adventure.

Captain Chris was knowledgeable and an expert fisherman. He shared his skill and knowledge and made the day enjoyable. I booked the trip for my partner who is a very skilled fisherman and he got to just fish and enjoy because Captain Chris baited my hooks helped me cast under the docks and made sure I had fun, which is usually Jim’s job. So everyone had a good time.

I never had a Captain work so hard to get us on fish. Even though it was a slow day we still caught fish. I would charter with this Captain anytime and recommend anyone to do the same. My wife and I had a great time.
