We had a great time. Captain Craig did a great job, very friendly and had a fairly good idea where the fish were. He was a very good captain and really tried to make sure everyone had a good time.

My husband and I booked a 4 hour trip with Craig and had a great time! He made sure to take us to areas where the fishing was most active. He told us stories about the history of the area which made it even more interesting for us. I would highly recommend that anyone book a trip with Craig at Emerald “C” Fishing Charters!

The trip was great. Capt. Craig took us to the right spits and we caught a lot of fish. He made sure my son caught fish and had a great time. Craig was very knowledgeable of the area and answered all of our questions. We’ll definitely go out again with him next time we go.

Great service, slow time of year for fishing but Captain Craig put us on the fish. The four of us caught between 80-100 fish with a couple of line strippers. Made us feel like kids again baiting our hooks. Looking forward to our next trip with the Emerald C.

Hello I’m James, I wanna thank Captain Craig for the amazing fishing experience we had. It was a 5 star around the board. Captain Craig was very helpful taking fish off and baiting our hooks, and a extremely nice guy! Can’t say enough about the boat! Very nice and dry, and felt safe. I would definitely recommend Captain Craig to anyone looking for a great day on the the water catching fish.. Thanks again..

What a great day, caught a lot of fish. Captain Craig was wonderful. Stopped at first location but suggested we go a little future to a spot he had fished earlier in the year. Seas had been rough and not been able to get out there but we got lucky and had a beautiful day. Had plenty of live and cut bait. Already planning another trip.

We booked an offshore trip with Capt Craig while we were on vacation in Perdido Key. He was very knowledgeable of the area and put us on fish right away. He was very friendly and his boat was brand new. We will definitely book again with Emerald C Fishing Charters.
