This is our sixth trip out with Captain Larry and we have never been disappointed. He uses his vast knowledge of the ocean and fishing to meet your specific needs. We like mahi mahi and we always go home with a good catch. The boat is beautiful and I always have a great time on his boat. I am a... More

we spent 2 great days fishing with Captain Larry Wren in April. The experience impressed me enough to write this, my first ever review. It started with the quick and helpful responses I got from Captain Larry two months prior to the actual fishing dates. Very friendly and helpful. I suspect we lucked out on the weather, but finding the... More

Fished half a day with Capt. Larry and first mate Casey....they were terrific! Very friendly, very interactive and great fisherman. They made sure everyone on board had a great time and of course, caught some great fish. I would highly recommend these two fine men, you won't be sorry. We were sad when our trip was done, the time flew... More

What a great experience. Larry and First Mate, Casey, were awesome. Brought home the most fish in the harbor that day! Our hope was to catch live bait and go for sailfish, but the live bait wasn't biting that day. We could have stayed longer to try for this, but Casey was very honest and upfront about chances and based... More

I took my family of four out for a full day of fishing with with Capt.Larry and FM Casey. A bit apprehensive about going offshore, my daughters' fears were soon put to rest by the excellent crew. We caught lots of fish and Capt.Larry and Casey worked their tails off to insure that the day was action-packed. The only problem... More

I don't think it could get better from a captain and mate.. These guys know there stuff. I have been on many boats but never have had more success and fun. They treated my 8 year old like a princess and worked their butts off to find the fish when the morning started out slow. M

Fished on First Choice Charters twice last week and had two great days catching sailfish, blackfin tuna, wahoo and some other great tasting fish. Captain Larry did a great job putting us on the fish!! Will surely fish with Capt Larry on our next trip.

We fished 4 days starting June 24. We had a great time. Capt. Larry and Gary the deck hand could not have been more helpful. We caught lots of fish, did some snorkeling and have great photos taken by Tony H2O. We will be back. The Texas Boys.
