Captain Jack was great. A friend from up north was in town and is a seasoned fisherman. I wanted to give him a good time fishing in FL. Captain Jack did not disappoint. In fact, he exceeded both of our expectations. Great pompano, trout, snook, and grouper fishing. He moved us constantly to find hot spots. And he had great... More

Captain Jack is the best. He knows the area and where to catch fish. We loved catching the variety of fish the Florida has to offer. Captain Jack sure made an impression on my family!

Went fishing with my husband and 10 year old son for a half day with Capt Jack. We all had a great day and caught about 50 fish between us and had enough to take home for dinner. Capt Jack took us to several fishing spots and was very knowledgeable and friendly. Would recommend this trip to anyone who wants... More

My girlfriend Gail and I went out for a half-day with Captain Jack and had the time of our lives! We caught a 38" Cobia, a Lemon Shark, and many other varieties of fish throughout the day. Captain Jack was always very friendly, helpful and engaging. We would recommend him to anyone visiting the Sarasota area.

Last week I spent two memorable days with my son, tarpon fishing with Captain Jack Hartman in Sarasota. We had the most amazing experience catching three fish (120lb, 100lb, and 90lb in weight). Jack really did look after us, and is so knowledgeable, passionate, and experienced. I would highly recommend Jack to any one wishing to have a fishing trip... More

No trip to Sarasota is complete unless we get to fish with Captain Jack. Jack is the nicest guide I have ever worked with. He has always been able to put us on fish, even in tough conditions. My daughter only likes to fish with Jack, though she did loose her Family Champion title this year to her Dad by... More

Just an outstanding day with Capt.Jack Hartmann. Had my son and 13 year old grandson Tim, and me, on a chilly morning on Sarasota bay in mid February. We weren't 15 minutes from the dock when we started pulling in the trout. New experience for the boy and the goal was to catch fish and have fun. That we did....the... More

What an awesome day on the water with Capt Jack! My Father, my 13 year old son and I spent the entire 4 hours catching fish - at least 20 fish per person. The highlight of the day was my son pulling in a 10 lb Trout - a memory to last a lifetime. We had a feast that night... More

Captain Jack had us catching fish the entire 4 hours we were fishing. This was the 3rd year fishing with Captain Jack and we wouldn't miss it. If you are thinking about fishing around Sarasota, this is a no brainer for anyone.
