Second trip this year with Southwest Fishing Charters. Captain George is punctual, hardworking, knowledgeable and a very friendly captain. Both trips caught a lot of fish. Will use no one else, he's the best. Will be using Captain George again in the near future.

Can't say enough great things about Captain George. My brother and I chartered for a half day. Probably 30 trout, some sheepshead and a redfish. Also caught a nice snook. When I'm back in PG, I'll book with Captain George

We've gone out a few times now with Capt. George. Always have a good time. Kid friendly and accommodating to his guests. Oh yeah, he knows his stuff too.

It was $400 in season. That included everything and up to 4 passengers. Three is probably better.
