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

Caught a Red Fish, King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel and a Lizard Fish. If you have children I recommend this family friendly fishing charter.

Went on a day trip with Captain Mike. We are a family of 6, the youngest being 11. We went for the 6 hours to allow for the boat to get off shore. We were catching fish every few minutes-mainly grouper. Mike was so patient as only my husband was experienced at fishing, so Mike was really busy helping us... More

We went with Captain Mike and another couple fishing and had an amazing time. He knows how to get the fish. The second we dropped our line in the water we had a fish. When it slowed down he would go to a new spot. We went to 4 or 5 spots for grouper and also went trolling for barracuda.... More

Very intelligent, great with instructions, and does all the hard work for you. What more could you want. We nick named him "MAGIC MIKE." When we come back to Clearwater we will definantly... More

My husband and son had an excellent trip with captain Rich. They caught a lot of Spanish mackerel and our son got a 3 1/2 foot barracuda! Helen was great to work with. Our son is still talking about what a great day they had. Definitely an Above Average experience!
