My family and I vacationed in the Keys for our first time over Christmas break. My younger son (12yo) for his birthday wanted to go deep sea fishing. We have never been before but found Best Bet thru trip advisor. They were awesome from the get go! They made sure that my boys (12 and 15yo) plus my husband got... More

My wife and I decided to book a fishing charter in Key Colony Beach. We asked a friend of ours who has a home in Key Colony, if he had a suggestion. He pointed us to Capt. Jason Long of Best Bet Charters. We spent 6 hours fishing with him and his mate Joel. We not only limited out on... More

Truly exceeded expectations. Captains Jason and Roger put us onto several schools of mahi mahi and made sure everyone got plenty of action. They were awesome with our kids too! Plus, Jason graciously shared some local knowledge for fishing the canals and mangroves around the island. Kids had fun catching fish every day of our stay in Key Colony Beach.... More

I've been fishing with Captain Jason Long for years now, and I am never disappointed. He always works hard to put me on the fish, and I always come back to dock a better fisherman. Looking forward to many more years of tight lines with you, Captain!

Have known Jason and Mike for years, and have fished for them many times, and again this past week. They are both knoweldgeable, courteous, hard workers, and most imptly good fishermen. They are also very fun to be around when fishing or just having drinks - which is impt in building a 'fishing' relationship. Finally their location in Key Colony... More

Went out on a pick up charter with Jason because they were 1 short. Left at 8 am and had fish in cooler by 930. Water was rough, was windy and water was cloudy yet Jason still got us on the keeper grouper and giant mangrove snappers. Caught a nice mackerel and some yellowtails. Boat handled nice, very relaxing and... More

Went out this past weekend with Jason and had a great time. Caught some good fish, he knew where to go with the sea conditions. Caught some small sharks, and saw some big ones eat our fish. Always a good time. Its called fishing, but with them it should be called catching.

Went out fishing on best bet. We drove around for four hours and fished for about 30 minutes. Caught one small fish which ended up costing about 1,000 dollars.

WOW!!! Capt Wayne Albert is the BEST BET Capt. You want to put your money on. We walked up at 8:10 when our other charter had a mechanical. Completely not expecting to take out 6 fisherman, we left out at 8:45 with very, very limited bait, rough seas and 2 rookie fisherman included. We boated over 150lb of Dolphin in... More
