Went fishing on Monday, April 17, 2017

I booked this trip for my sons 16th birthday.  Had five family members along, including my 14 year old daughter, all of us with different fishing skills. I was excited to learn we were headed out 25 miles on a half day trip.  Captain Bart certainly knows it’s worth the travel to get the good fish. He kept everyone fishing…and catching.  My son hauled in a 28lb Black Fin Tuna, I hauled in a 45lb King Mac, one of us lost a monster Gag Grouper to a shark that wanted him more than we did…made for a great story and pic.  We head to St Pete every year.  I have fished all over the gulf coast.  I wish I would have found Bart years ago.  Will be back down and spend another day fishing with him.  We couldn’t have had a better day on the water. What a memorable day for my son’s 16th birthday! Thanks Captain!

Hey Kerry, thank you for a great review and a great trip. You guys were a blast! There’s always a little extra pressure when I know it’s a birthday trip but, the fish gods came through for us. Days like this are the reason I love what I do. It’s not always about catching the biggest or the most fish, it’s also about having a great time with family and making memories that last a lifetime. In this case we definitely managed to get a few fish in the boat as well. Great trip with a wonderful family, I look forward to seeing you next year! Thank again, Bart.

2 old English men went out with Capitain Bart. We went out 25 miles and got fish including
a 180lb Bull Shark. Capitain Bart worked so hard all day, he never stopped….. Forget the rest… Capitain Bart is the best…....

Hey thanks for the business Justin. I appreciate you coming across the pond to fish with me. You guys did very well. Mangrove and yellowtail snapper and other assorted reef fish as well as some kingfish and a nice shark fight. Very productive 4 hour trip. Thanks again!

Even though a lot of species were out of season we caught quite a few kings. We returned grouper back to the water, as well as some others. Had a great time. Capt. Bart was very informative, and instructed our 3 teens in some of the finer points of fishing as well as preparing your lines. Even the adults learned some new things. Capt. Bart has a great personality and takes great pleasure in his customers catching fish. Great trip- highly recommend!

Thank you Denny. It was a real pleasure having your crew in board. We had a great day and landed quite a few species and a limit of kings for five. It’s awesome to see three generations of family out there fishing and making memories. I look forward to seeing you again soon.

Bart was at the dock and waiting when we arrived. We headed out to one of his ‘spots’ and were on the fish as soon as the bait hit the water. The boat was great, weather was awesome and Capt Bart was hustling to keep us busy. Would definitely recommend this charter to anyone looking to have a fun day in the Gulf.

Capt. Bart had the boat prepared and waiting on us even though we were early. Nice clean boat with comfy bean bag chairs for the gals in the party. Went about 43 miles offshore to the first spot and within 3 minutes I was fighting a 20 lb black fin tuna! The rest of the day was limitless out of season red snapper and amber jacks, plus a nice kingfish. Capt. Bart put us on top of the fish and did everything in his power to keep the fish coming in. A fun day and great way to spend a birthday. I will be returning shortly.

Experience of a lifetime.
I have been on charters before and this was by far the best. Capt Bart takes great pride in putting his customers on the fish…...and we got them. Knocked four off my bucket list. Even after a mishap with one of his rods Bart still busted his ass for us. If you want a top notch fishing trip this is your best bet..We will be back next year. Thanks Captain Bart

Had a good time on a beautiful boat, with a great captain.  It wasn’t his fault, but we didn’t catch much.  Just our bad luck!

Capt. Bart was very experienced and informative. Everyone caught fish and we had a good time. Bart responded professionally to all calls and questions before during and after our trip. I will book again when the opportunity arises.

Went offshore fishing.  Captain and crew were knowledgeable and experienced fisherman.  Caught several fish, sharks.  The boat was in perfect operational capacity.  The gear was in top working order.

Thank you John, it was a great day on the water! Didn’t get everything we were looking for but, managed a little action.

Thanks so much to captain Bart who really made both of my fishing trips special this week. His expertise and knowledge of the local gulf waters made these trips better than the dozens of charters I’ve been on in the area over many years of visiting st. Petersburg. Thanks again for your time and generosity.
