Captain does know where the fish are. Loaded the cooler but nothing big. Boat is very slow and if you go offshore prepare for a 2.5 hour boat ride each way. So we fished for 4 hours and rode for 5. No mate but captain covered well.  Not recommending only because I’m used to a go fast to get to fishing grounds.

Capt Chris got it done for us, after a fairly lengthy boat ride he anchored on three different spots,  all three producing fish, afterwards he filleted and bagged them up for us. Although there were a few in our party that were not feeling well, overall it was a good trip, I would definitely do it again.

The seas were very rough, not the captain fault, however if you can go on a calmer day,  I highly recommend it. 
If you think motion may bother you. Plan ahead put on a patch, or get Dramamine I
We also saw, 3 sea turtles, 2 sharks, and a dolphin.
There is more to the trip, then fishing, beautiful views.

Had a great day aboard Queen Conch .
We caught a bunch of Snapper and a few small Grouper, nothing big. That would have made a super fun day, instead of just a fun day.

Went fishing on Tuesday, July 25, 2017

the boat was very slow (12.5 knots)
did not troll any kind of bait on the hour and 40 minute ride each way to where we fished
did not have any keepers over 12 inches long
first mate done a great job
line on the polls would not have healed a big fish or big shark if one had been hooked
no good leaders on hooks , looked like 20# line for a leader
spent less than 3 hours fishing on my 6 hour trip

Mr. Brown sorry you feel you did not have a good time on your fishing trip you booked 6-hour half day fishing trip for fishing for Snapper and grouper and which after traveling 16 to 18 miles offshore we make sure you get anywhere from Two and a half to three hours of fishing time tackle we use are prefect for catching Snapper and grouper. We do not do any trolling in the Gulf of Mexico I do not have any Outriggers on the boat ,the boat is set up for bottom fishing only. Please remember fishing is a sport although your party caught a lot of fish ,saw a lot of action and you had enough fish to take home for a very nice fish fry. If you had any questions or concerns about the charter I wish you would have brought them to my attention so we could have discussed them at the end of the day

Great day fishing with Captain Chris and Mate Kyle.  Chris put us on the spots and Kyle kept us bated.  Pulled in mostly Lane Snapper and Grouper. Well worth the money!  A great time had by all!

We had a fantastic time!  Captain Chris and First Mate Jay were very friendly and knowledgeable.  Even future boatman Kyle (Captain Chris’ 9 year old son) helped bait hooks and remove fish.  All three did a fabulous job.  We caught many fish, including 4 sharks, perch, snapper and a couple other kinds that I can’t quite remember.  If we ever get back to Florida, I would definitely book another fishing trip with these guys!

Captain Jake was the Man!!  He made sure the Fisher/Jablonski fishing trip was a fantastic experience we will always remember!
Everyone caught multiple fish including our youngest 9 year old crew member.  We finished our day by hooking an 8 ft hammer head shark. We all got to experience the 30 minute battle with the shark! Thank you Captain Jake!!

Overall, a good SWFL deep sea fishing experience. The Captain and First Mate were courteous and professional. The boat was clean and the queen bed was clutch for a nap while you motor back to harbor. I was a little disappointed with the fishing, but that’s fishing. Targeted snapper and grouper. Again, overall a good day on the water.

Capt. Chris and Nick did a fantastic job.  Put us on several spots.  97 fish between six of us. Lots of grouper and snapper.  Had enough snapper to feed a group of 14 with no complaints

Thanks Capt Chris and first mate Nick for a great day and great experience.

Jay was our captain we had a great experience the water was rough 5-6 foot swells, but We all felt safe with Jay!
As soon as our bait hit the water we were catching fish! Had at least 4-5 BIG fish break our line( our inexperience) caught plenty though. Would definitely book again. We didn’t get back until after 11 pm but Jay cleaned all of our fish and showed my son in law and I how to fillet the fish!

We use Penn senator 4/0 reels with Penn 20 to 50 lb rods perfect for grouper an snapper fishing. We provide squid an sardines for bait. Live pin fishing can be purchased, but at customers expense.
