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.

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
