Great Trip!  The weather was windy and the water choppy….4 foot swells.  It was a rough ride getting in and out.  The fishing with captain Mike was awesome.    Would recommend the trip.

We were originally scheduled to be on a half day golf trip but due to boat problems had to reschedule our trip to a half day inland trip.  Turned out great….caught fish and really enjoyed it.  Bobby was great….will be sure reschedule when I’m back next year.  Thanks for everything!  Will be sure to come back

Unfortunately the trip was not what we expected we thought we were going on a fishing trip using bait and fishing poles what we ended up doing was chasing bouy ‘s for four hours and finding a fish on a buoy and catching it with the net the information online was a bit misleading if we knew that this was the type of fishing trip it was we probably would not have gone

The captain, Bobby (not the owner), was attentive and had a lot of knowledge regarding Florida’s fish and their environment.  Bobby had a great personality and found humor even on a COLD day!  I thought we would have a toilet on the boat, from the advertisement, but we did not.

I have been on multiple fishing charters, and I have to say that Bobby is right up there with the best of them. first off, you can tell he LOVES what he does and KNOWS what he is doing. His main concern was getting us on fish and he did not disappoint!!! I was with 3 family members that have never been on a charter and because of the impression Bobby left on all of them we will be back soon.

We were a party of 3 and a first mate out for a half day.  We had a great time - and will book this charter when back in Venice. The boat was perfect for us, everybody had plenty of room.  We had one experienced fisherman and two novices - The first mate was patient, friendly, put us on fish and gave us tips for catching them; he never lost his patience when unraveling line or unsnagging hooks.

This trip was a blast.  Captain Bobby knew where to go to catch the fish that were biting.  We were on fish very quickly and brought home a ton of fish to eat.  Captain Bobby was incredibly knowledgeable and he worked great with my 12 and 14 year old boys.  We had a blast!

I was visiting Florida for only a couple of days to visit my grandson. This trip was booked last minute (the night before) and we were so happy that they contacted us right away so we knew we would be all set for the morning. Normally the captain has a mate to help pull in fish, bait hooks, etc. but because we booked so late the mate was not available. The captain went out of his way to help us with anything we needed and was more attentive then 3 mates. He went out of his way to make sure we caught fish and that my grandson had a good time. We caught plenty of fish and had a fantastic time! The Captain also cleaned the fish and “make no bones about it” he was a great guy, thank you K2 fishing.

Gabe took us directly to the fish with Bobby being great at helping all three of us with bait, advice and assistance.  We also got five King Mackerel on the line and landed three beauties!  We’ll definitely return
