We went out with Captain Jack yesterday in the morning in less than perfect conditions, and still caught some wonderful fish. I cooked the fish for my sweetheart John's birthday dinner. It was DELICIOUS. We caught trout, pompano, flounder, sheeps head, lady fish, and for real excitement a Bonnet head shark! Jack is a fun captain who loves to fish..

Prior to our trip Jack warned us that the fishing hadn't been great. Some cold weather affected bites and catches. Wasn't the case for us. He took us to one of his "spots" at the start and the first cast was a nice sized trout. Didn't stop after that. After about 4 hours, we were well into 3 or 4... More

We are a family of four with 2 kids age 20 and 17 that are sometimes a little difficult to entertain, but the fishing trip with Captain Jack was a huge hit! We were first-time anglers so Jack had his hands full with us, but he stayed calm. We had a blast! And we caught lots of fish for a... More

My 17 yr old son and I had an exceptional day on the water with Captain Jack. We booked a tarpon charter, something that neither of us had done before, and with Captain Jacks expertise and knowledge we were on big fish early and were able to land the first two we hooked up. They were by far the biggest... More

I can't begin to explain what a great experience we had with Captain Jack. He was very informative, helpful, and made it an extremely fun day on the water. We caught some killer fish, and will definitely be going back in the near future! Awesome!

Captain Jack was terrific! We took the charter with my 11 year old son and he was so very helpful with him! Very kid friendly! His communication setting up the charter was fantastic and keeping in touch when we arrived letting us know the weather condition for our day was a plus! We actually had to postpone the trip for...

Our family of four went on a fishing charter with Captain Jack in late February (yes, I'm late in writing this). It was a fantastic trip. My son (12) is the real fisherman in our 4-some and got some fantastic tips. My daughter (10) - not convinced she wanted to go - was completely put at ease by Captain Jack.... More

Captain Jack was great! We caught lots of fish, several different varieties. His knowledge of the Sarasota area and fishing is endless. We are looking forward to returning next year.

Great time with a highly knowledgeable and personable fishing guide. The waters were cold and the fish a bit sluggish, but Captain Jack knew where to find them. We reeled in pompano, trout, and red fish. A great time and over all experience.
