Back in early June, my wife booked a charter through this guy and gave it to me for Father's Day. We planned our vacation to go from Orlando to spend a day in Daytona for the fishing charter on June 24th in the afternoon for my son and myself. For the 2 weeks prior my wife tried to email Capt...

We booked a trip with Captain Fred and give him a credit card. Captain Mike was to meet us at 6:30 AM he overslept. He finally showed up at 8:30 and took us out. He took us to one location and that was it, only there for 45 mins. We arrived back at the dock at 11:00 a.m. I asked... More

My son was coming to Florida to visit, celebrate his birthday with me, and go on a deep sea fishing trip. After asking around I heard that "frenchy" the fishing guy was the best guide to take you to the real fish. So, I booked for a full day, and having been burned badly by a fishing trip off South...

I have lived and fished New Smyrna for a long time. Capt Fred has always been friendly and helpful in passing. I chose him to take me and my friend for my B day this year. We hooked 4 big reds brought 2 to the boat 50 to 60 inches.

Frenchy was fun and knowledgeable! He put us right on the fish first thing. We had so much fun that I asked him if he had another time slot open a few days later! He said he did and were going out again. One of the biggest fish that I had ever caught! A+ experience!

We went out 6/14/14 and had a great time! It was my son Jacob's first time fishing on a boat, and Capt. Frenchy was very patient with him. He was a little too small to handle most of the fish we were catching, but he had a great time. He was even able to identify kingfish as they prowled beneath... More

My sister fishes with Captain Fred regularly so planned a girls trip after a family wedding. "Frenchy" is great with experienced anglers and super patient with those who need a little more help with technique. We caught a smorgasbord and had a few that got away, but the highlight was chasing manta rays to see if cobia were around. Catching... More
