Just returned from my 5th fishing trip with Captain Skeet, Daniel and Jose on the Bushwhacker. On this trip we caught Blue Marlin, Striped Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi-Mahi and, of course, lots of Sailfish. About 30 lbs of beautiful Ahi steaks came back with me this time!!! Skeet and his crew fish hard. Great bait, top of the line gear,... More

I've been fishing with Skeet for almost 10 years at least once or twice a year with my father and we are continually impressed. The Bushwacker is a great boat for recreational or tournament fishing, small or large groups, and experienced or novice anglers. Skeet is hard core dedicated to find the fish. If they are there, he will find... More

On my first trip out of the country, I was amazed from start to finish! While out on our all day trip, my friends and I were treated so well. Captain Skeet is a natural at knowing where to go for the big catches! This was my first fishing trip and to say that I was thrilled is an understatement.... More

Fished on the Bushwacker for three days recently with my father and two friends. I can't say enough good things about Skeet and the operation he runs. This boat is by far the safest, cleanest, fastest and most comfortable in the Flamingo area. Food and beverages are always available as well as a comfortable air conditioned cabin if it gets... More

While staying at a resort, my wife and I struck up a conversation with a guy that just went fishing with Captain Skeet. We had spoken to a few vendors at the resort, but we were leary about catching fish and they were pushy. We emailed Captain Skeet and booked a normal all day trip. He sent a cab for... More

Just recently visited Costa Rica with my wife on our honeymoon. We booked Captain Skeet a couple months back for a fishing trip on December 3rd 2013. From the get go Skeet was very professional and answered all my emails in a very timely manner. Once boarding the boat Skeet made us feel like the Bushwacker was our own personal... More

If you're in the Flamingo area, there are plenty of opportunities for boat rides. If you want to FISH, there's a single choice. Capt. Skeet might not take you where all those other boats are going, but his lifetime of experience will put you on the fish aboard the comfortable and impeccably maintained Bushwacker. He runs a fair and honest... More

We've booked Capt Skeet on the Bushwacker for the past 5 years for our Marlin University sessions in Costa Rica. As part of Marlin Magazine, we have a specific criteria when selecting captains and charter boats for our classes. Capt Skeet and the Bushwacker meet all our criteria and then some! If you want a first class captain and crew... More

Our family of four fished with Capt Skeet on Thursday and had non stop billfish action!!! We caught 11 sailfish and a great 225 pound plus blue marlin. We hooked up with the marlin only 10 minutes into our fishing day--Unbelievable-- what a way to start!!!. He was truly a professional and his boat work(manuevering) was the best I have... More
