We booked a trip with Bushwacker early in January not realizing that there can be a problem with winds at that time of the year. Captain Skeet was very accomodating and shifted our schedule by a day to find the best weather conditions that were available while we were there. Also, we fished further South than where they normally fish... More

We booked a full day of fishing with Skeet and his crew. Even though the water was very rough, we had a fantastic time catching fish. Skeet is amazing and his boat is extremely well maintained. The equipment he uses all great. I will definitely use Skeet again the next time I go fishing in this area.

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...

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
