Background
Capt. Frank Tropepe grew up in South Florida. As a kid he was constantly exploring the tropical wetlands of the Everglades, roaming the backcountry for Redfish and Snook. He got his fist taste of offshore fishing when he was stationed in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. Needless to say, he was hooked (not literally). Over the next decade Captain Tropepe fished whenever he could. His love of fishing drew him to create his own bait service for local fishermen and charter boat operators, while at the same time starting to offer private and commercial charters himself.
Techniques
We employ a plethora of fishing techniques to ensure that we put every single customer on fish. Whether it is kite fishing, slow trolling, deep dropping or reef fishing we have the gear and knowledge to find the fish wherever they are.

The daytime swordfishing action has been steady. It appears that the dry spell we saw over the last 2 weeks is over and the swords are back and they are chewing. On our swordfish charters we leave out of… Read Full Report →

I have only been fishing a handful of times over the years and I hate going out and getting sun burned and not catching anything. When we got to the dock in the morning I was joking around with captain Frank about that. I told him that we better get fish on the boat. He told me that he would make it happen. We set out and from the time we got out the inlet to the time that the charter was over we where doing something fun and exciting. We caught 5 big Mackerel Kingfish 4 tunafish and a ton of snappers with yellow tails. There was also another snapper that was red with a black spot on the tail that he told us was a great eating fish. Thank you Big Time Outdoors. The family and I will be back.

The trip aboard big time outdoors with captain frank exceeded all expectations I had coming in.

Captain Frank demonstrated his years of fishing knowledge in a way that was both fun and informative. It’s always great learning new techniques used by the pros.

We caught several nice kingfish and a few dolphin that made for great dinner for me and my family.

The captain’s fishing expertise, encouraging attitude, and great offshore vessel will keep me fishing aboard big time for years to come.

When the term “Fishing” translates to “Catching”. Captain Frank is the type of angler who knows the water like the back of his hand, and will put you on some serious game fish. I had an unbelievable fishing experience fishing with Frank. Great pricing for the experience! Ive gone on way too many charters that were sub par, but this charter with Big Time Outdoors is one that you just can’t pass up. Looking forward to my next trip with Captain Frank. Thanks a million Big Time.

Captain frank is hands down is the most professional charter I’ve been on from cleaningness to perfect presented baits to being on time. I was very pleased with the whole operation. The mate took their time to educate me on what we were doing and explained each step and gave us options in case we didn’t catch the targeted species we ended up with a cooler full of tasty mahi mahi fish we have been eating mahi tacos for a few nights in a row and I couldn’t be more happier I would recommend big time outdoors to anyone that is looking to have a excellent time on the water! Thank you again captain frank and crew!
