It was absolutely perfect! I told Captain Toney beforehand that it was a fishing trip for my daughter and he didn’t disappoint! I felt he went above and beyond in making sure we caught a shark and we did(6ft 150lbsblacktip)! My daughter left saying it was the funniest coolest thing ever! She has truly not stop smiling and snap chatting about her experience!!! So thanks Captain Toney!!!

My fiance and I had awesome time fishing with Captain Tony.  We went deep into the open ocean and right away Tony put us on fish!  The blackfin tuna were biting like crazy and it was nonstop action!  Tony was great! He is very friendly, outgoing, humble, and down to earth.  He also is extremely knowledgeable about fishing and knows the ocean like the back of his hand!  we ended up catching 12 Blackfin tuna all very good size, 1 large barracuda, and 1 mahi! If you want to get the most for your money and experience fishing at its best than this is the charter for you!  Why pay 1200 to 1500bux per day elsewhere?!  Here you pay half that and catch more fish. We had a great time! Thanks again Tony!  Oh and cant forget his wife Janice who was super nice and welcomed us back to the dock.  She made us a fish print that will be framed and will be a lifelong memory.  Awesome experience!!

Fabulous time! I took my two teenage kids fishing and we had a great time. Caught lots of fish (yellowtail, snappers and more) Spectacular ocean views. Tony was very patient (we’re novices.) He had anything you may have forgotten… Water, sun screen and ice. To end the trip his talented wife Janice made gyotaku prints of the fish. The icing on the cake was meeting their dog, Nadhera

We had a wonderful evening on the water with Captain Tony.  Our intention was to fish for tarpon and shark.  The water was calm on the way out to the spot the captain had planned to fish.  Sure enough, as soon as the anchor was in the water, the wind came up and storms started popping up around us.  Typical Florida summer day.  We were still able to land sharks that took nicely to the bait, but the tarpon in their finicky way stayed away.  Guess they will have to wait till the next trip.

We had a great time on our half day of reef fishing with Singing Reel Charters! Tony was any exceptional captain and knowledgeable fisherman. He even let us stay out a little longer without charging extra to try to catch more fish.

From start to finish this trip was incredible. Within 15 minutes of being getting set up we hooked into a 300 lb tiger shark. Tony worked with my teenage daughters to teach them the techniques of reeling in this size of fish. He was personable and knowledgeable and terrific captain. Our whole family agreed that this fishing excursion was the highlight of our trip to the Keys.
