My wife, my son and I went on a 1/2 day fishing trip for $60 each. They supplied the cut bait and live bait was available for a cost. We used the cut bait and ended up catching 12 fish with 5 keepers. We had bites many times but couldn't seem to get the hang of hooking the. Brad, who... More

I was looking for a reasonably priced deep sea fishing charter for our group of four (myself, my father-in-law, and my two kids ages 9 and 11). We hit a home run with Captain Jack's! The captain hit some good spots and moved quickly if we didn't get any bites. The crew, Mark and Pete, were extremely friendly, knowledgeable and... More

Nothing fancy,older boat, basic bottom fishing. If you're looking for a fancy charter trip this is not it. If you want to spend a few hours fishing at a reasonable price it's worth it. And for the reviewer who complained that they were in a rental boat and the charter headed right at them! Learn the rules of the water... More

We left at 7:30 am. Took about 1 hour to get out where we would be fishing. We had Dolphins following us for a little while and putting on a show. There was the Captain and the Captains mate who helped when you caught a fish. It cost $60 for each person and that included rod and bait. You could... More

Had a great time with Captain Glen. He provided instruction and tips for catching fishing. We caught Grouper, Lane Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, Key West Snapper to name a few. Captain Glen is very knowledgeable and look forward to another trip in 2017. Highly recommend if you are looking for a smaller group, max 6 person, fishing experience.

The boat itself is not the Princess, but certainly sea worthy. No one is there to be pampered, they're there to fish, and fish we did. It was a perfect day. Fish were caught right and left. Once the hole went dry, the Captain moved us to another. The crew was so helpful and friendly and accommodating. Lots of laughs... More

The boat is poorly maintained, a little paint could go a long way! We were taken to 4 fishing spots out anywhere between 12-16 miles out in the Gulf, the boat leaves around 7AM and returns around 2PM and took about an hour to get to the 1st spot. The group of us (7) caught a lot fish, 19 went... More

I am on vacation and my wife and I decided to charter Capt. Jack's fishing services. However, this is how my experience turned out. Let me start by saying I am extremely upset. We called the day prior and we were informed, they needed a minimum of 15 people and they would call back to tell us if they met... More
