Background
I grew up near the water and have never known any other lifestyle than one that revolves around the water. Fishing is something that came natural to me. It is something that I have always been very successful in and truly enjoy doing.
Techniques
Sight fishing with both live and artificial baits is my preferred style of fishing, however, when the water is murky, pitching baits underneath mangroves also proves to be an exciting and productive way to fish.

Excellent professional charter.  Drew put us in the position to be successful and we landed some great snook, snapper and a Red. 

Will definitely be a repeat customer.

Drew was great. We had an 87 year-old, legally deaf, man in our group of 3. Drew was very patient and worked with him very well. Fishing was slow at first because of choppy water, but Drew kept trying his list of spots until he found one that worked for us. Each of us caught 8 or 10 fish. Highly recommend this captain.

Great fun for my family of fishing novices.  We had a great time, caught lots of fish and loved the super fun “speed boat ride” between spots as well.  Will definitely go with Captain Drew again.

My grandaughter, grandson and I did a morning trip with Captain Drew on March 29. Drew is knowledgeable, informative and likable. His boat is nice and easy to fish on. He worked hard to make our trip fun and successful. You can’t go wrong on a Chum Crazy Charter.

Captain Drew got in touch with us the day before our trip to verify start time and was ready to meet us the next morning. He quickly had us on fish. We had two teenage boys and Captain Drew did a great job with direction and instruction.  We caught fish throughout our trip and the boys (and adults) had a great time. Highly recommend Captain Drew.

We had a great experience with Captain Drew. Waters were too cold to go searching for red fish or snook so we targeted trout in shallow waters. Captain Drew was extremely knowledgeable and took us right back to a spot where he’d had consistent success over the previous week. We were catching fish shortly thereafter and throughout the remainder of our trip, even once the “afternoon bite” had settled in. Drew was very personable and laid back and most importantly honest about conditions and expectations for the trip up front.

Had a great time on the water with Captain Drew. He responded to the booking immediately and was flexible with timing. He was committed to ensuring we enjoyed our trip while being honest about expectations. A cold front had just passed through so the conditions were suboptimal but Captain Drew put us on top of fish and kept us busy throughout the trip. He knows his stuff and was helpful in every way. I recommend Captain Drew to anyone looking to get on the water and catch some fish.

Thank you for the feedback Ernie. Im glad that you felt it was a 4 star trip despite the tough conditions. I advised you of the cold front that had come through and that it can make the fishing extremely unpredictable. Im very sorry yall didnt get to bring home any fish that were legal to eat. Fortunately we found the fish, and they were eating our baits, unfortunately many fish were missed. I enjoyed our time on the water together! I wish you guys the best and hope you have better luck on your next fishing adventure.

What a GREAT day!!  Capt. Drew called me as soon as I booked on Fishing Booker.  We wanted to fish the very next day and Capt. Drew had no problem taking us out right away.  He walked me through what times we would have the best chances for success, and we came up with a plan.  The next day he met us at the dock with a great boat and top of the line equipment.  Within a few minutes of leaving the dock, Capt. Drew had us reeling in Snook.  We spent the next four hours constantly catching fish.  I mean CONSTANTLY catching fish!  Our group consisted of one experienced fisherman, one occasional fisherman, and two beginners.  Capt. Drew set us all up with equipment and rigs that fit our abilities.  He worked with the beginners to assure that they would be successful.  And they were!  Even the guy that couldn’t cast when he got on the boat, was casting great after Capt. Drew worked with him and he caught a ton of fish!  We ended up catching 6 different species of fish, big and small, and quickly lost track of how many fish we caught.  If your a fisherman, you know thats a great day!  If you want a great day of fishing, no matter your level of experience, then book with Capt. Drew.  You won’t regret it.  But leave the third week of November open, because Im coming back!

A friend of mine was visiting from up north and I wanted to show him what big Florida Snook were all about. I found Capt. Drew Underwood and was extremely happy with our fishing trip. He picked us up from the dock with both live wells loaded up with bait and we headed out to our first spot. He chummed a ton of live baits and had us on the snook right away. He made sure to move around when the bite slowed down at a certain spot and kept us on fish all day! I would definitely recommend Chum Crazy Charters and Capt. Drew Underwood

Cpt.  Drew was very accommodating,  as I am 22 weeks pregnant.  He was very cautious of the waves and the chop.  We caught fish,  but no fish we could keep.  We felt like the boat should’ve moved more to find better fish.

I apologize for you feeling that your 6 hour trip was only worth 3 stars as I strive for 5 star ratings. Unfortunately I can’t control a slow day of fishing which do happen occasionally. I spoke with some other guides at the ramp that agreed the fishing was very slow for the day and caught much less than we did. You guys caught 20+ fish including multiple snapper, a 3ft bonnetthead shark, some trout, a flounder, and a few others. I will be contacting you shortly to see if there is anything I can do to ensure your happiness. Thank you.

If your looking to “fish” this may not be for you but if your looking to “catch” you have to check this out. He put us on the big Snook as soon as we got out and landed several large and one huge Snook. We also boated a really Nice size Redfish.
We always wanted to do this, now we won’t ever come here again without booking a charter with him.

We had a beautiful day to fish (but then again any day is a beautiful day to fish).  Captain Drew is a VERY nice young man who did EVERYTHING he could to put us on fish….he likes to teach about fishing and educate us about the history of the area.  We caught many fish and five different species on our trip.  We saw dolphins hunting fish and a manatee running to get away from a pontoon boat.  We are already talking about next year and what we want to fish for.  We recommend Captain Drew.

Capt Drew was such a nice guy and did all he could to ensure we had a good experience. Capt Drew was very knowledgeable and was there for us every time we casted into a tree or needed new bait. It was fairly windy the day we went and Capt Drew knew exactly were to put the boat and where to cast our lines. I would recommend “Chum Cazy Charters” to anyone looking for a great day on the water.

Captain Drew is personable, knowledgeable, and tons of fun. I imagine that he would provide an excellent experience for experienced anglers, and he is also a great Captain and charter for inexperienced Anglers who want to learn the craft. I was taking my young son out for the first time, and I am completely green myself. Not only was Captain drew patient with us as we learned how to fish, but thanks to his training and his knowledge of the best fishing waters we caught a couple dozen fish in just a four hour charter.

Capt. Drew told me he had some great Snook spots near Ft Myers and boy did he deliver. I fish Estero Bay and it was a pleasure to explore new waters and Captain Drew knows his stuff. He goes the extra mile( got live bait BEFORE we put in when all the locals were saying bait was near impossible to find) my friend got his personal best Snook and we raised a nice Backwater Tarpon . Great experience. Kevin, Estero
