Nothing "Fishy" About These Guys

The crew was cordial and very helpful in providing us with good working gear, a steady supply of bait and help with untangling our lines when it was needed.... More

Two of us had a really good day out on the boat - caught a variety of fish with a friendly helpful skipper. Not cheap, but a great experience.

We have been fishing out of this marina for years. Many excellent captains but if you can get Sidney, Chris, Dave or Perry then book them. You will need to book several months in advance but it's worth it to make sure you have a good captain who puts you on fish and always wants you to have fun!

We planned a family fishing trip for my father-in-law's 60th birthday. He lives in Fort Myers, FL, and had been wanting to go deep-sea fishing, so this was a perfect opportunity to celebrate. We booked 4 people for a full day with Captain Raymond Baiz on the Reel McCoy. His mate was Rick. While the trip was very enjoyable, we... More

Horrific! I booked a trip for a total of 6 people a year in advance. I called every few months to make sure we were still good to go. I had people flying in to meet us from NY and Virginia. 6 months into the reservation they called and increased the charter due to gas prices. I said no problem,... More

Came down to Islamorada for the day from Miami and went out with Captain John Johansen, who could not have been more knowledgeable, gracious and friendly. He was the perfect combination for a day on the water, and we had a wonderful time. We caught an array of fish, learned a lot, had an amazing time, and couldn't have taken... More

We booked our full day charter with Capt Sid and left from this marina. The marina is well taken care of and we enjoyed a nice breakfast burrito from the small cafe before we left. Although it was a windy day when we were out we still enjoyed catching shark, lady fish, pompano, blue runners and many other species. We... More
