The Giant Kings and Flounder

March 19, 2016

The day was beautiful and the golf fishing is starting to pick up right now. We fished some wrecks and a sunken barge. That she was a little rough which cut the trip a hair short but we still… Read Full Report →

Sorry about your cooler going home empty guys. This never happens to us. You did catch a nice bonito 15 minutes into your trip though. On our behalf I would like to say that we have never had more bait fish here in the area than we do now as you saw from the millions of fish we saw busting the water. We did catch some big Bonito, but I understand you wanted some eaters. I will give you guys a 40% discount next time to make up for it, if you wanna give us another chance. But in the end, fishing is Fishing. Thanks for coming and hope to see ya again.

We had an amazing time with Zack!  We stayed in Destin for one week and this fishing trip was the favorite part for my 14 and 16 year old boys.  Zack was wonderful with them.  Zack was very accommodating and knowledgeable.  We want to use him again on our trip next year.  Thank you Zack!!!!

Captain Zack has a nice boat and equipment and is very friendly.  We trolled the gulf on a 8 hr. trip. The weather was perfect but the bite was slow. We picked up 3 bonito which aren’t for eating then we finally caught a couple nice king fish! One was 3 feet long! Was hoping for a little more action but that’s why they call it fishing. We still had a great time on a picture perfect day to be on the water. Thanks!
