Great Experience!

We used Above Average charters for a family fishing outing. Captain Richard was great. They are super relaxed and we had a great time. I even caught a shark!

We did a 1/2 day morning trip. We had great weather and the Captain took us to a nice location to troll, where we caught about 18. Overall it was a very good trip. I've read a lot of the posts here, so there's a couple things to consider when you charter a fishing trip like this: 1) Be realistic,... More

Captain Gene here from Snorkel With Manatees in Citrus county Florida. From one captain to another, great job Captain Mike. My family had a great time. I realize that they call it fishing and not catching but captain Mike went all out to get us what was catchable. We did an afternoon, half day charter and it was great. As... More

Went fishing with Captain Mike . We did catch Spanish makril , king and travelli jack. He runs the boat sets the gear and gets the fish in the boat. Also cleaned the fish for us. Made for a great dinner!

It was very easy to coordinate the trip with Helen. She responded very quickly to emails and phone calls. There is parking right in front of the boat slip and they do provide a parking pass. We spent the day fishing with Captain Rich. We had a great time. We did the 6 hour trip and it took about 45... More

From the moment I spoke to Helen to book our trip to watching Captain Rich fillet our 50+ fish catch, it was a great experience. Great bonding time with my son and nephew a trip we will book again as soon as possible. Thanks for a memorable day!

I'm not one to submit information on my experiences/visits from my vacations, but this one just had to be praised! My sister had deep sea fishing on her "bucket list" and, so we made it happen. After making our reservations with Helen, we arrived at the Clearwater Marina to set sail on a half day excursion. Captain Mike Hinegardner was... More

After a day of fishing with Captain Richard I could not have been more satisfied! For someone who has only fished a few times, Richard made me look like a professional out there. Every different spot we went to I was catching fish left right and center it was unbelievable. He knows everything there is to know about fish and... More

No active fishing. We selected this charter after reading the reviews on trip advisor ratings- top in its class. The four hour fishing charter consisted of trolling two lures and a single bait fish around the Gulf of Mexico. It was a big disappointment, and even more so when the charter next door rolled back in the slip with over... More

The captian really knows where the hot spots are; about 30 seconds after we cast our poles we started catching 1 after the other!!! Great time and nice escape after spending the prior 3 days at amusement parks. Helen was very helpful in providing details about what to expect from fishing trip but ALSO suggesting other local attractions since we... More
