Captain Craig runs an awesome operation. I’ve fished with him on a few occasions and he always has his equipment in order, has the boat ready to go, and works very hard while fishing. Thanks, Crabby, for the great times!

We booked Craig for a 7 hr charter in grouper season, he suggested we do the 9 hr to raise our odds of getting some bigger grouper. Well worth the extra $!! We had 6 in our group, and easily caught 100 fish in total!...More
