Among the species we threw back were red grouper, trigger fish, porgies, grunts and one gag grouper. Captain Lewis MacDonald was the ultimate professional. His... More

Went out for a full day on 12-11. Caught 9 Mangrove Snapper and about a dozen pogies. We also caught about 5 grouper-too bad season was not open--we had to throw them back. Had a great time--catching fish steadily all day.

Went out 12/8. The weather had been choppy, but 12/8 report was good. We got almost to the fishing area, and Lewis said it was just too choppy to fish. He gave us our money back and we went back to the dock. Will try again Friday. I have done bit of charter fishing all over the world, but have... More

We loved our shark fishing trip with Mac! My son caught a 10ft 300lb. Lemon shark and Is still talking about it. It was definitely the best part of our Ft Myers vacation. We will only be using Mac Attack for our charters from now on....

Mac took us shark fishing for 4 hours. My son caught a Red fish and his two buddies caught sharks. He cleaned the one shark that we were allowed to keep and we ate it for supper. Delicious!

We went on an early shark fishing trip. The weather was not on our side, but the fishing was great! He was very helpful and made fishing for sharks not so scary. He was very knowledgeable about sharks and the area. I say it is a must do when you're here! We will be back for sure!

Our boys were playing in a baseball tournament and Captain Lewis worked with our schedule. We caught a couple of sharks and it was a great day! We will definitely be back on our next trip.

We went on the morning charter and started out the morning catching a 5' hammerhead, and immediately after that caught a 3' lemon shark. Captain Mac kept us entertained with plenty of exciting stories while waiting for a next bite. Very kind and happy guide. We had several break our lines before landing a 8' ft tiger shark and then...
