I am a Resident here in the Florida keys and when friends or family come in and they wanted to do some fishing I always look to see if Capt. George is available. The last trip my two brothers and I went off shore with Capt. George and we targeted wahoo. Capt. George put us on fish after just a... More

We took our first fishing trip with Capt George Jr May 13th. What an exciting experience!!! From the time in the bay catching the bait to hooking a 4-1/2 ft barracuda....it was great!!! He was always watching the waters, yet made us feel like family. Will definitely be booking another charter with him!!

Knows his stuff, puts you on fish, but his offshore boat is not safe. It is old and dirty. The fighting chairs are not bolted down. The chair toppled over while I was fighting a fish. It toppled over again for my partner when a big wave hit the boat. She almost went overboard. I asked him to go back... More

I must say Captian George treated us like we were family . I felt like he really went out of his way to make sure we caught fish. I caught 11 fish that day . He was like an uncle sharing stories ,recipes, and ways to catch the fish we where after. He also stayed with after we got back... More

We are in the people business first. Most guys can catch fish in our business, but making you feel comfortable and welcomed is very important to us. We do pretty good on the fishing part too, but a laid back approach suits us fine. Remember you are the paying client and should always be treated like gold know matter who... More

I have fished with Captain George for quite a few years now. Every time I fish with him we have a blast. The main target for me is Tarpon. Have also had the pleasure of catching many other species of saltwater fish. You name the fish, Captain George will put you on them. He definitely knows his waters and will... More

I met George 9 years ago through a friend who had fished with him before and was told I had to fish with him so I made plans to do so. I was very impressed with his professionalism and knowledge of the water. I hooked into my first tarpon and knew I was hooked myself!! I've fished with George and... More

For me, being honest with clients is the most important thing. We want you to have options too and set you up for the most successful day you could have. We won't give a client bad info regarding what they can catch during the time you are visiting. We don't blow smoke! Instead we try and lay out options that... More

My husband and I chartered the Got 'em On and we had a FABULOUS time. Caught LOTS of fish and were thoroughly entertained by the old salt who was our captain. These guys are the BEST! Highly recommended!!!

Fished offshore with Captains George and George one day, and backcountry with George Jr on second day. Despite rough offshore conditions and spotty fishing, the Captains found fish for us, where others were not having luck. Highlight was catching a nice bull dorado on a spinning reel with live bait. Second day was gorgeous in the backcountry, with a very... More

Nothing better then a father and daughter spending time together on a boat catching fish. Ok maybe the only thing better would be a father and daughter eating their fish together and talking about how they caught them. Thanks guys, tight lines Capt. George More
