Sean Atkins and Rob put us on the fish and we had a great time- Rob worked his tail off having bait ready and gear ready for us… Capt Sean kept us on top of fish and if the bite stopped or slowed we were on to the next spot. Would definitely recommend PC Florida Fishing to anyone !

Captain Sean made the best of a slow fishing day, dodging the rain and hunting for some fish. We caught a nice Red, a Drum that put up a good fight, but was too big to keep, a Hammerhead Shark, a Blacktip Shark and a couple of Catfish. Missed a few. Nice day on the water with a knowledgeable Captain Sean.

Wow, caught a lot of fish. Expert captain and crew. My 6 and 13 year old boys and 70 year old father-in-law were well taken care of.  Second to none.  While my mother-in-law watched, my wife caught the most fish. Variety: trolled at first and as it as slow went out 10 miles and quickly got many varieties of reef fish. So many, we wanted to try trolling again and Captain Sean and Rob got us several Kings. The boat is top notch and very fast; As it did not take long to get to different areas to fish.

Our experience with PC Florida Fishing Charters was first class. Captain Sean really knows these waters and the fish. He put us on some big amberjacks right away. Also pullled up a triggerfish and a red snapper. Then did some trolling and caught one Mahi Mahi and several King Mackerel. Couldn’t have asked for a better trip. Will definitely be back time and time again. 1st mate Rob was very professional and worked hard to make sure our experience was perfect!

I had a blast with you guys Josh, see you all again real soon.

Went fishing on Monday, September 12, 2016

Captain Sean actually called me a few days in advance to inform me an opening had come in a day earlier than our planned trip that would allow us to keep the red snapper we caught. We payed for a 6 hour trip but Seam kept out an extra hour so we could troll for some King mackerel. He put us on the fish and we had a blast. He’s a great guy and so is the first mate who sadly I can’t recall his name. Had a great time swapping stories and shooting the breeze, along with some jaw jerkin. We will definitely be calling him again next year!

Captain Bob was extremely nice and put us on the fish, which is what one should expect.  However, the boat was advertised as having air conditioning, a below deck quarters for relaxing if some in our party became tired or sick, and a bathroom.  Now the boat we went on did have a bathroom, but was a cubby hole setup, and we had a female fisherman that made it hard for her to go to the restroom.  Also, there was times, more often than not, that the captain only permitted 4 anglers to fish due to squalid.  That’s all fine and good,  but I feel a reduced rate would be in order, as we paid for 6 fishermen.  All in all a decent experience, but not as advertised

We would definitely go again, but next time we would like to go for a whole day.

A+ Experience All around. We will use this company again next year!

Having been on numerous Charters out of Chatham, MA and Point Judith, R.I., my expectations were high. Captain Bob and Captain Sean didn’t disappoint me. The day started slowly but the Captains worked hard to get us to locations where we not only caught our limit of Red Snappers but very good size Snappers. Both Captains were personable, very helpful and genuinely concerned about making sure we had a good time. I now live in FL and plan to continue to use Captain Sean as our Charter of choice. My only recommendation to future fisherman is that the boat works well for a party of 4 but might be a little tight with a party of 5 / 6 which is why I rated equipment & boat 4 stars.

We gave this customer the option of chartering on a smaller boat due to a repair on the boat he booked, they elected to fish on the other boat and caught a limit of snapper and many other fish that day. Also this customer was given an additional 2 hours of fishing time & free fish cleaning when the trip was completed. He has absolutely no reason to be dissatisfied.

We were taken to some great spots, caught a few small guys and some that were not in season right away!  Then the second spot they took us turned out to be even better with a huge red snapper and good size red snapper and many others, then we did some trolling at the end and caught a great king fish.  Thank you to Capt Mike and his deck hand Dillon for a great day!

We also caught other types of fish and released some red snapper that were caught but not in season. Overall a great experience!

Captain and boat met us right on time, everything was ready to go.  His boat was perfect size for our party of 3, plenty of area in the cockpit to fish.  A cold front moved through, although it was sunny the wind was wicked.  Sean did everything he could to put us on the fish, most would have called it a day but Sean continued to work to find fish.  Sean and his first mate were extremely nice.  I would definitely charter with him again.
