Captain Ryan is A+, his boat is great for fishing and he really went out of his way to find good spots to drop a line in and make sure we had everything we needed to have a successful day.

Capt Ryan worked hard and gave us exactly what we were looking for.  He kept the rods bent and we had a great time.  Caught just about everything we asked for.  Last day we boated 2 permit and 2 cobia.  Would highly recommend him

Awesome time with Captain Ryan. Reeled in trout and red snapper. He and his first mate (adorable son) made sure we caught Easter dinner. The dolphin and manatee sightings were an extra perk!! If you are in the area and want to go fishing, search no further.

We pulled out of the Royal Palm Marina in Englewood on Captain’s Ryan’s boat. There were four of us older folks out for a day of fishing. Some of us hadn’t fished in over 25 years and never in saltwater. He took us out in the gulf and we started fishing. We were getting bites and catching fish, a bunch of fish. We kept Captain Ryan busy…baiting our hooks and taking off our fish. We were so busy fishing that we didn’t get a chance to take many pictures. When we returned to shore Captain Ryan cleaned, filleted and bagged our fish. Captain Ryan Riegsecker is very professional, an excellent charter captain. To cap off the day, we ate at Snook’s Bayside Bar and Grill which is there at the Royal Palm Marina. What a day…the most fun we had in a long time. We enjoyed this experience so much we are thinking about another fishing trip for next month…

That was the most beautiful day I’ve seen out there in awhile
Almost too calm

In all honesty Captain Ryan tried his best to go to different spots for fishing. The wind was not at all helpful. I think if it was not so windy and choppy we would have caught more fish.

Ryan worked hard to find the fish after a cold front passed through. We caught quite a few snapper and a few grouper. He was very professional , we had an awesome time. Highly recommended!

Had a fantastic time. We really appreciated Ryan’s effort to fill the cooler with fish, light hearted ness and how it turned out to be a great memory. Please consider calling or on line booking with Ryan. He will work hard to make it a great day.

It was a family affair my family and Capt. Ryan and his first mate.  We enjoyed ourselves because we caught fish and enjoyed each others company.  We caught enough fish to have a large fish fry that night and took home plenty more fish. It was obvious to us that the crew knew the waters and made changes at the right time to result in a productive day.  Without a doubt we will use this service again with other family members and friends when they come visit the Englewood area.

You guys cracked me up all day but Trey and the shrimp ordeal was hilarious

Went fishing on Friday, January 13, 2017

Very professional!! Was in contact with me within 24 hours of booking. Just a quick call to confirm the trip date and time, but good to know that he was aware. Capt Ryan then contacted me the night before we went out with pick up location details and answered any questions we had about what to bring or what to expect. Capt Ryan was on time and got us immediately out on the water. He got us on the fish and when they moved on, so did we… to a new spot. We filled the cooler and he got to spend an hour cleaning fish… Seems like he got the raw end of a great day of fishing. Three cheers for Capt Ryan!! Definitely recommend Fin Crazy Charters!!

We went on the four hour trip with Captain Ryan. We had a fantastic time. Ryan was fast to get fish off our line and get the line back in the water. He knew some great spots and we had a lot of fun. I’ll be back.

I had to include a picture of my wife’s “grass bass.” She had to catch one no matter where we fish :)

Captain Ryan was great.. I would go on it again or anytime I want to charter again. I would book with him again. Everyone had a great time and caught a lot of fishes. I like to thank him for a great time and guarantee catch on first stop n drop. He knows what he’s doing and he did a great job. Very satisfied.

Had a great time, captain Ryan was awesome! I had planned my trip months in advance. And just so happens ,I arrived in the middle of red tide , and not the best weather coming up ahead of a hurricane. And despite this captain Ryan not only found a great place to fish , we managed to catch some nice ones. Im sure it was much harder for him to do this considering , but he never let on it was.I’ll be back!

I will never forget that day!!

Went fishing on Sunday, August 14, 2016

Captain Ryan took my wife, brother, and myself out for a half day charter and immediately put us on the fish.  The water was a bit rough so we only went out around 5-6 miles out of stump pass, but that didn’t stop captain Ryan from finding us some fish to catch. We quickly filled the cooler with snapper and grunts, then decided to try our luck inshore where capt. Ryan found us a great spot for trout and redfish. The best part of the trip was once we docked at the Royal Palm marina, he cleaned and bagged all our fish and we walked them over to the restaurant where they cooked them up for our lunch. I will definitely be booking more trips with Captain Ryan in the near future.

We had a great time with Captain Ryan and his mate Jason! We tore up the snapper. His boat is spacious and easy for a party of 4 to fish in. The boat rides smooth too. My boys had a blast. I would recommend Ryan to anyone looking to charter either offshore or inshore. He will put you on the fish! Thanks for a memorable day guys! It was awesome!
