Went fishing on Monday, May 22, 2017

Jim was professional and assisted us to the best of his ability. The package I purchased included lunch and snacks but there was none provided for us so it was dissapointing when I didn’t know. I would’ve packed something if I knew it wasn’t going to be what I paid for. Reserved for 5 people but only four of us were able to make it ($50) each additional person. Still charged for 5 even though only four of us were serviced. Not sure if I would use fishingbooker again just because the communication on lunch arrangements were unclear and our preferred time of the weekend was approved then cancelled a day later so we got rescheduled. I would recommend Jim but I wish it would’ve been better communication. Overall he was professional and friendly. We caught some good fish but not too many.

It clearly states that I do not provide lunch, snacks or drinks on my page. However I always carry a cooler full of ice and drinks for my clients.

The issue with paying for 5, yet bringing 4, is with fishing booker not myself. Your preferred time I was book, I spoke with you through email explaining what I had available (that afternoon or the next morning).

You then requested offshore fishing when it clearly says 4hr snook, redfish, trout. All of which you hooked or caught along with shots at triple tail and a cobia in some windy conditions.

Captain Jim is a local boy who worked in our group to go fishing for a day while we were down in Florida for a swim meet with our kids. Jim was able to accommodate two 11-year-old boys, their dads, and another friend for a great day of fishing. We got to try a little bit everything on that day of fishing including going out and deep for grouper, And then coming in towards shore for a lot of good sport fishing. We took home plenty of fillets of red fish and sea trout, we got into some jacks and some kingfish. While one dad and son were experienced fresh water fishermen, another dad and son had no experience. Captain Jim did a great job of accommodating all of our group with a great sampling of local fishing this time of year. Experience or none, I would recommend Captain Jim as a guide for anyone with any level of experience who may want a good sampling of local fishing and a great time doing it.

Eveything was great except the wind and weather. It made it difficult for is to make a plan, leaving is running late on getting bait. Then we were not able to net as much required for chumming to get the kingfish that were all around is. We did get 7 good spanish mackerel and some redfish that were too small to keep. Overall the Captain takes prise in his work, and does a great job. He did compensate is for the lack of bait, and we ended up with about 20 lbs of mackerel.
