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

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!

Mike was a great Captain and explained everything to the newbies... We caught our limit of King Mackerel and a ton of Spanish Mackerel, which we shipped back home. We also caught a Sailfish, and a Hammerhead shark took a Mackerel as we were reeling it in! Best trip ever, and a memory for a lifetime! Thanks to Helen for... More
