We lucked out when another customer had to cancel their morning trip and we were able to nice up our afternoon charter. Weather was calm, waves were slight and the fish were biting on the reef. My son paid close attention to all of the advice from Captain Fred and it paid off nicely for him with about 17 Red... More

My husband and I took his father and his wife on a four hour fishing trip with Captain Mike. We had a fabulous time. We caught so many Sheepheads that the hold on the boat was full. There were several other boats around us... Captain Mike knew where to position us... we were catching all the fish!!! Captain Mike is... More

The 3 days we fished with Captain Fred, we had good to amazing fishing despite the tough conditions. Of all the Florida guides of fished with, Capt Fred is easily the best in terms of knowledge...

Grandpa, my dad, and me booked a February charter with captain Mike, and let me tell you it was epic. Mike is a down to earth really cool dude that really knows what he is doing out there.

Capt. Fred is my go to guy. I'm an experienced fisherman but when I want to change things up he's the only one I'll call. You may not understand everything he says and he won't coddle you but you'll catch big fish and lots of fish. Been out twice with him and caught tarpon, snook, and so many overslot reds.... More
