Fished with Captain Dave Jones and Jimmy Boone on the Gimme Jimmy, a 39 foot See ,on 2 occasions in July. Limited out on yellow tail in 60 minutes on our reef trip followed by success with the mutton thereafter. Two weeks later went dolphin fishing. #5 plus fish, including 8 gaffers. Captain Dave fishes hard and Jimmy Dolan entertains.... More

They Never refilled our bait bucket...we had to get our own. The back of the boat is usually where the... More

While I love to fish and have chartered boats and hired guides from Alaska and British Columbia to Cape Cod and Montauk, I don't consider myself more than an adequate fisherman. This past week on our annual guys fishing trip, my party fished for 3 days with Capt Dave off Islamorada. Not only is he a great fisherman, but he... More

My husband and I went out on the 6 hour trip and caught our limit of Yellowtails. 10 per person. The mates, Dillon and Justice, were so helpful and patient with us. $65.00 per person and they have the rods and bait. Great trip for a family who like to fish.

Walter with his 37 years of experience put us on fish immediately as soon as we dropped anchor. We caught lots of Yellowtail Snapper, Yellow Jack and a... More

Went drift fishing on Miss Islamorada which was a typical operation. The fishing was pretty decent all day for two things. The first was the way the back of boat is controlled by chum balls. You need to be in back to catch fish. The mates could care less about giving all customers a chance to fish in the rear... More
