Background
Fishing wasn't a part of my lifestyle like it is now and I don't think I was as interested with fishing as much as having a personal life when I was going through high school. My younger years and more recent ones I wanted nothing more than to be on the water with a rod and reel. Through the years I've learned many new things and I've really enjoyed showing others the small details about fishing and their tendency's. So I decided to take my life to level and do something I love. And here we are!

Captain Justin was knowledgeable and so much fun!  He must be giving these ginormous fish kick backs. We couldn’t have asked for more incredible catches, and then a half mile escort back to the marina by 4 dolphins!? My son is thrilled! Highly recommend this charter!

Had a good day on the water with Justin yesterday.  I’d like too think he had just a good of time with us.  Once the college sports subject came up, there was an instant connection with our group.

Justin immediately put us on fish.  Hes processional and willing to do what it takes to catch fish.  Highly recommend fishing with Justin!

Captain Justin very personable and attentive. Took care of everything and we caught fish at every stop! He really gives it his all. You can genuinely see how much he loves getting his customers on the fish. I would recommend anybody to give him a try.

It was one of my best days on the water ever!

My 11 year old son wanted to go fishing, so I booked a half day trip with Captain Justin.. it was great.  He promptly met us at Petes Pier in Crystal River and we were in the boat and on our way right on time. We first stopped to catch some pin fish for bait. Then we went to a spot to hunt for some redfish.  Got several big hits but luck of the draw line broke on a rock.. but my son did reel in a nice bluefish and spotted sea trout.. then we headed to a spot by some rocks and really started to land some fish.. grunts, Spanish mackerel, a shark, stingray, blowfish, some candyfish, perch, some baitfish to land some nice grouper and more! We had a blast and my son is still smiling!  And we have plenty of fish for dinner and then some! And we stayed out a couple extra hours until the bait was gone!!

Didnt know what to excpect when we booked this trip (first time in the mexican gulf), Turned out to be a superb day, Me and my wife (that isnt an experiensed fisher) catched 2 Redfish, 3 Sapanish Mackerel, 1 fine Grouper (and 4 smaller), 4 sharks and 1 stingray, Missed 1 big Stingray and 2 sharks (one of them 5-6fot the other one in the movie clip). Also catched a lot of different spieces so it wasnt still many minutes on the boat this day. Captain Justain did a good job and were very engaged the hole day.

Our trip exceeded our expectations. We had great fun as novice scallopers. Justin went out of his was to make sure we enjoyed our day and brought home a good catch. We will definitely be back again next year.

I took the family out scalloping , first for us. Capt.Justin was great ,very friendly ,  and as expected knew his way around the water. The day had a bit of weather early. Justin kept us out of the storms until they passed the area we need to go. We then proceeded to have a successful trip.

Capt had a borrowed boat with borrowed GPS which he stated only had 3 areas to fish and he felt they were not where he would have liked to fish.  His boat was “in the shop”.  He had no way to determine if fish caught were legal so a legal Cobia was thrown back.  Five people, 5 keepers caught all day, sad!

I’m sorry you feel this way and y’all didn’t bring a lot of fish back to the dock. You guys did however catch redfish,  trout,  grouper, grunts, cobia (which WAS under sized at 31 inches at the fork). I can’t control the size that bites the line. I did what I could with an extra large group throwing in the same location. There’s only so much room at some locations. Normally my max is 4 people and that’s tough itself. Wish you the best in the future

the day started with a introduction to a few shark and a nice size sting ray. While shark fishing our group of 4 caught a bunch of nice grouper that unfortunately not in season yet which promptly released. the largest shark wasn’t jaws but ranged in the 3 ft. cat. Did not have much luck catching any reds but the fishing was great. The captain was very personable and helpful.  Capt. Justin was very patient with our group of novices. Finished the trip with a mess of trout.  I would recommend a fishing trip with Capt. Justin for a great time!
