Captain rich was excellent. I took my 10 year old son and 17 year old babysitter on a charter yesterday, they had a blast. Captain rich put us right on the fish first thing, they couldn't keep the line in the water. We ended up with 29 Spanish mackerel and lost a barracuda. After the fishing captain rich and his...

Went out with Captain Rich over 4th of July for a half day trip. Family of 5 all over 20 years of age and had a blast! Caught at least 3 full meals of Mackerel. Rich knew immediately our skill level and accommodated us perfectly. Although fish weren't biting immediately, he kept encouraging us. I personally enjoyed his stories. We... More

I booked this charter based on the great reviews, but was very disappointed. The 45 minute ride out was very choppy, wet and miserable. Captain Rich stopped over a school of mackerel and just circled. There was no discussion of what we were doing - he just cast out the lines and told the children when there was a fish... More

Fantastic Charter Boat. Captain Rich is experienced and good at what he does. We have a family of 4...with an 8yr old and a 5yr old. Went on half day charter 07/14/15. Surrounding weather caused some choppy water but was really no issue for the wide bow boat and Captain Rich experience on the water. Nobody got sick!! And felt... More

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
