I have had the good fortune of fishing with Pete several times, both in Chokoloskee and Bahia Honda, and have had a great day each time. Pete knows where to fish based on tide, wind, water temperature and color, and who knows how many other factors. His boat is fast, comfortable, and very well equipped. Most importantly, Pete is great... More

I reviewed Captain Pete's last year about this time. My wife and I had so much fun then that we booked a charter with Captain Kurt as part of this years annual Florida trip. To say that the charter was as good as we remembered would be an understatement. I'll start by saying we saw some great wildlife including dolphins,... More

Haha too funny! Thanks for the "No bad Rapp" review. It's always a pleasure having you out and hope you come back soon. Would love to have you back in the Keys this spring for some more giant Tarpon action at the Bahia Honda. Thank you for the nice review! Capt Pete More

If you are looking for a great fishing/ bonding trip for your family, Chokoloskee offers constant fishing activity, unprecedented fish variety and beautiful scenery almost untouched by man. The key, though, is finding the right guide. Captain Rapps and his team are the right guides. They will maximize your Chokoloskee family fishing experience.

From catching lots of different species of fish, to seeing dolphins and even a flying stingray, this trip was one we will always remember! Captain Pete is also a super guy and he knew how to make the most of our 6 hour trip.

My friends, Jim and Marian, that spend the winter on Chokoloskee Island invited me down from Michigan to enjoy some sunshine and warmth of Florida. They planned an outing with Capt. Rapps. We went out into the 100,00 (?) islands and found many fishing spots. We caught lots of different kinds of fish but only kept the Sheepshead for dinner... More
