This was a great day for fishing! Captain Brian took the time and explained everything to the two boys. We caught sea trout, pufferfish, rays and so many more different kinds of fish. We even saw manatees! My wife (who doesn’t fish) joined us that day and had brought a book that she wanted to read while we were fishing - she read one page that day because it was so exciting and she really enjoyed it. I asked my son (11 years old), how many stars to give for this fishing trip and he said without hesitation to give 5 stars. This fishing trip was the best day of our vacation! We plan to spend another week in Florida during the next spring break and we will definitely book another trip with Captain Brian. Thank you, Captain Brian!

My son and I were supposed to fish in the bay, unfortunately a cold front came in the night before and there were 25 mph winds.  We still went out and were trying to hide behind the islands and hoping for calmer water.  I have been on many charters over time and some Captains would have said “It is what it is, I can’t control the weather.”  Not Captain Brian!  We relocated to the canals in the Everglades for freshwater fishing.  Needless to say my boys had a blast catching Oscars and Bass, Between the two 16 fish in the boat.  My boy’s told me afterwards how much fun they had, how nice Captain Brian was “everyone seems to like him”, and how much more they learned about freshwater fishing to take back home to Ohio.  Hats off Captain Brian!

Brian has forgotten more than other guides know. He has 30+ years of experience. He knows where the fish are and when. This was a trip for spring break for my son and if we do it in FL again I will not entertain any Captain other than Brian

I had a lovely time fishing with Captain Brian. Caught several keepers and he was very nice company. Unlike other charters I have been on, his equipment was very nice! Nothing worse the paying for a charter and only having crap gear to use! Really top notch fishing experience.

Captain Brian is great.  He works really hard to make sure you have a great day.  We caught plenty of fish, learned a lot about the area and had great conversation.  He was super with my 10 year old too.  Very patient.  I would definitely recommend this charter.

I want to thank fishing Booker for providing clients like Eya and her son 10 year old Ben. What a great day fishing with the both of them. Ben caught over 18 fish and he helps his mother netting his mother’s fish. We ended the day with a double hook up of a shark and a stingray. I am a lucky man with clients like the two of them. Thank you fishbooker.

I really enjoyed fishing with both Dan and Matt watching map fight that 70 pound nurse shark on 8 pound test was very exciting. Catching Bluefish speckled sea trout and the shark made my day .

It was a pleasure fishing with Captain Brian. His boat and equipment are in great working condition and he is a great guy to fish with. He is extremely knowledgeable on the local waters (we fished Biscayne Bay) and made it a point to explain the areas we were either driving through or fishing. The day we went out was unseasonably windy but Captain Brian was able to find us some secluded spots and still put us on fish. Overall we had a great day and I would recommend fishing with him to anyone (experienced or novice) who wants a great day on the water with a great (and very entertaining!) captain.

Anthony started out a little rusty but after catching a load of pinfish for bait he went and caught more trout then his dad and I really think he’s going to be a great fisherman he’s 12 years old you got a whole life ahead

We had a great day with Cpt Brian, we met Brian at Fort Lauderdale and the fun started great entertainment and really friendly welcome.

Cpt Brian took us in to the bay between Miami and South Beach, what a stunning location.

Brian’s boat and gear top class for the job and we were in to fish from first cast. 

We had over 30 fish for the day with sea trout, barracuda and various others which Brian had a story for each one.

Biggest trout was 26” around 7 lb and some fun landing it on light gear.

Highly recommended, with a real expert in these waters.

Very helpful and knowledgeable about area.  I was unfamiliar with not only the area but salt water fishing in general.  Captain Brian was there with information and tips about both.  His friendly attitude and upbeat personality made for a very enjoyable outing
His obvious love of fishing is infectious and we caught a lot more than a few fish.
Recommend him highly.

  Day started with terrible rain and winds. Had tornadoes touch down nearby.We waited at the ramp for an hour and a half,decided to go back up to Ft. Lauderdale and try around the bridges and canals.we caught some small stuff but could not find bigger fish that were hungry.
  Tried several different places using different methods. That day was just off for fishing.I fish a lot and have fished with many different people and I can tell you that most guides would not continue to get something working as hard as Brian did
  I will fish with with Brian anytime I can get to the Fort Lauderdale area.Brian is very knowledgable , has a great boat and good equipment.Do not hesitate to book Brian if you get the chance!
