My dad, friend, brother and I had a great trip with Captain Hank. When we weren’t catching anything, we moved into a school where we caught one almost every drop-down/cast. He quickly took off fish and put on bait and even cleaned and bagged our catch. I would highly recommend this charter service and will be contacting Hank in a few months for another trip! -Keith Neibarger

Very professional and captain always made sure hooks were baited and everyone was catching fish. When area was not producing a lot of bites we moved around to find a better spot. And the kicker he fillet all the fish we kept and bagged for taking it home.

Capt Hank is who you need to book with. He has a clean boat, great working knowledge and wonderful people skills. You will not regret it—he’s a one man show and he takes care of everything. You’ll definitely catch something with him!

This is the best fishing charter around. Thanks to captain Hank and the Deep Color Crew for the best fishing experience ever. He’s serious about his work and makes sure everyone has a fantastic time. His boat is super clean and puts you right on the fish from the start. We caught tons of fish like grouper, snappers and especially the King Mackerel (Kingfish). We caught a monster King Mackerel that weighed in at 33 lbs and 46 inches long. I highly recommend Captain Hank and Deep Color Fishing for all of your fishing needs. Get ready captain Hank!!! We’ll definitely be back for more fishing trip here soon!!! thanks for everything!!!

This was another great fishing experience with Captain Hank! This dude is serious about his work and is excellent at making the day memorable. I’ve now used his outfit twice—once with my wife and kids and once with just buddies. Each trip was skillfully designed to fit the occasion. So much bang for my buck! Cant wait to go again!

Thanks for the review, glad you guys had a good time!

Went fishing on Monday, September 5, 2016

I met up with a couple high school buddies we went out for a day of fishing the weather was beautiful the boat is really nice and Captain Hank really knew where to go for the fishing. we cought a bunch of fish even though it was after a major storm and the gulf was kind of turned up. Most of the fish werent as big as we had hoped it but the gulf is pretty shallow for miles and miles out so it’s pretty tough to get bigger fish that we caught. We got some snapper and grouper and all in all it was an awesome day
