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.

Had a girls trip to Islamorada and none of us had been Deep Sea fishing. We booked a Charter with Captain Larry Wren, we had an experience of a life time. Capt Larry and his mate Gary were so accommodating and the boat and the bathroom were so clean which is important to four women. When we got back to... More

We fished offshore and caught a ton of mahi then went tarpon fishing the next afternoon. Captain Larry and the mate Gary work hard and the fish co operated both days. I'll be fishing with them again.

On July 17, 2014 First Choice Charters put us on fish only 45 minutes after leaving the Marina and we continued to catch fish all day. My family and I have an experience we will never forget and were treated with respect and courtesy all day. I cannot say a bad thing about Captain Larry or Mate Larry. They were... More

Capt Larry and Mate Gary of First Choice Charters gave our family an experience of a life time. We caught more Mahi than all the other boats docked in the Postcard Inn Marina that day. My 18, 15, 12, and 8 year olds all had a wonderful time and Larry and Gary were very polite, nice, and accommodating with them.... More

Thanks again Captain Larry for an incredible day on the water! The bite was strong and the Captain knew all of the best fishing spots to keep us busy pulling in fish. My 11 year old boy had an amazing first time fishing and we will certainly be back next year for more action on the water..
