I have gone fishing with these guys several times and it has been consistently great!! Captain Joe makes sure everyone has a good time, he knows the right spots and we always come home with some fabulous fish for dinner!

If there is truly a fisherman's heaven, it would be Kodiak Island Resort on Larsons Bay, Kodiak Island, Alaska. However, if you aren't interested in catching 100+ pound halibut, or, 40+ pound ling cod, or, 20+ pound yellow eye rockfish, or 5+ pound black sea bass, or, 10+ pound pacific cod, don't even think of going there. I took my... More

We were a party of 7 having our first experience of deep sea fishing. We had a fantastic day and without doubt the highlight of our holiday to Naples. The boat was very comfortable and plenty of shade from the sun. It was well equipped and as complete fishing novices the crew were very accommodating and understanding of our needs.... More

Our family and friends went out for a full day of deep sea fishing yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Captain Jim and First Mate Howard were extremely knowledgable and attentive. Fishing is not an exact science... There are no guarantees that you're going to end up with a huge catch. While we did get a lot of activity in... More

I have been on many such trips in various countries, and this was by far the worst. The crew were arrogant and self important. As we were unsatisfied with the trip and didn't tip (I see no reason to tip when it's so terrible you are just desperate to get off the boat) so they started insulting us as we... More

We believe this review is related to a similar one posted on June 24th. We have been unable to get any info out of Tripadvisor relating to the reviewer so we are posting the same management response as the one on 6/24. We have no record of having these folks on a charter. Tripadvisor has been contacted to investigate if... More

My 6 old grandson had never caught a bigger fish than a blue gill. I discussed this with my son, daughter in law and wife and decided to check out charter boats. I came across the A & B Charters and thought, local and so we called and set up a 1/2 day trip. To my surprise the attitude of... More

Our whole experience with A&B Fishing Charters was unpleasant from the beginning. My mother organized this for the family to get together and have some time to do an activity together. We were scheduled to go on the second trip as they run two every day, but the day of, they called to tell us that the first group had... More

We have no record of having these folks on a charter. Tripadvisor has been contacted to investigate if the review is legitimate. Assuming the review is legitimate we are extremely disappointed the clients were unhappy. Rest assured that my staff at no time has ever cussed someone for not leaving a tip. Secondly, catching 24" grouper (10-12 pounds) is good... More

I wish I could give more than five stars. Captain Joe and his first mate Dan made my family feel absolutely at ease. We arrived at 715 as instructed and they immediately helped us on to the boat and left for our half day trip. The boat was great perfect for getting out of the sun and plenty of room.... More

The Captain and First Mate were totally dedicated to us having a great day fishing. I took three parties, and to the man they had a great time. I will be back next season for sure.

Back in FL after two years We did our 2nd family trip with A&B earlier this week bringing 3 adults and 6 kids ages 11-17. These guys were fantastic. Clean boat, good equipment and totally responsive to a fun and easy fishing experience. After some successful snapper and grouper fishing we spotted a traveling school of fish and the crew... More
