We have been doing off shore fishing for over 20 years in Florida. Our last outing with Captain Joe and first mate Pablo was our best outing ever. We did a full-day trip, which allowed more time for different fishing. We trolled on the way out and did OK. Then we fished on the reef; grouper was out of season,... More

Allen is a rough tough sort of fellow who hangs down at the pier. Here he sells fishingtrips...We are glad that we avoided the "monkey boats" and booked with Allen. Our fishingtrip was a blast and we caught around 69 fish (kingfish, grouper, snapper, toadfish, reef shark etc). The crew were very friendly and attentive. Hats of for Allen and... More

Top notch charter! Went out on the afternoon 1/2 day with 8 family members ages 8-70 and everyone had a blast. Crew was fantastic and worked extremely hard to ensure we were constantly catching fish. We trolled and bottom fished and each spot was full of action. Would highly recommend A&B to anyone looking for an amazing day on the... More

We had a great time fishing with Jim and Wyatt. We were asked what types of fish we were hoping to catch, and Jim catered our locations to that. In the end, caught more than enough for a large family dinner and the whole experience exceeded expectations. Jim was very knowledgeable and friendly to everyone on board. Wyatt was also... More

Had a great day trip with Jim and Wyatt. They asked about our interests and expectations and then exceeded all of them. Caught fish for the table and had an absolute blast with huge Amber Jack for sport. Jim made sure everyone was included and was an all around good guy. Wyatt was a pleasure to work with and was...

Captian Allen canceled our trip right when we arrived...no notice! Don't book with A&B! I have never had this happen in 30 years of chattering boats.

We are sorry this party of 2 persons was not able to get out on a charter. The pair were supposed to join a group of four others who canceled. This sometimes happens with shared charters. We always try to contact everyone prior to the charter to let them know their status. In this instance we were unable to get... More

I anticipated catching just a handful of fish throughout the day. I never imagined that while the lines were in the water, the longest gap between fish was probably 5 minutes. We caught everything from Snapper to a 70lb amberjack. Captain Joe and his 1st Mate were highly professional and a joy to fish with.

We chartered A&B Fishing Charters through a fishing guide we used before - but he was not available so he suggested Capt'n Allen. Getting in touch with Al and setting things up was not a problem and he was happy to accommodate us. However when we got to the dock I was disappointed to find that he would not be... More

From first email to last handshake the crew of A&B Charters ( Capt. Jim and his mate in particular) were by far the best people to have worked with out of any professional putting that I have ever been on. I brought my wife, father, mother, and brother on an all day deep fishing charter and from the first time... More

Said he had me all good to go on an all day trip for Monday and he would call me over the weekend to confirm, directions, etc...at $220 per for an... More

We are always sorry when someone is not satisfied with our service. The individual who submitted this review, wanted to join another group as part of a shared charter. The other group of five people, he wanted to join, decided to re-schedule for the next day and the individual guest did not receive notice of the schedule change. I have... More
