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!

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

I don't usually take the time to review something I'm pleased with but I feel compelled to write about our Father's Day weekend with Capt Mike aboard the Above Average 2 charter boat. We had an absolutely fabulous time. Our party of 4 included my husband, our 7 year old daughter and our 10 year old son. Our morning was... More

The Captain was very friendly, fun and knowledgeable. He knows what he is doing and where to go for the best fishing experience. I went with my boyfriend who loves fishing. I don't know much about fishing nor have I fished much at all, but with Captain Rich he was very helpful and made the entire experience very fun! I... More

This was one of the best experiences my family has had. Mike was wonderful with my children and was very helpful in assisting them to catch 9 large Spanish Mackerel, 1 tuna, and my 9 year old caught a 6.5 foot, 175 pound shark. We definitely will go back. This is a cost affordable trip that shouldn't be missed.

On the morning we caught 12 Spanish Mackerel, 4 kings, 1 Bonita, a dolphin and almost a shark. The boys had a blast.... More
