For my husband's Birthday, my girls and I thought Deep Sea Fishing would be a fantastic experience. We've lived in South Florida for 10 yrs and have never been Deep Sea Fishing. Once I emailed Capt. James my inquiries about booking a trip. He called me with a few hours. He was very nice. He patiently answered all my question,... More

We joined Captain James for an afternoon of fishing. Despite the fact that the waves were "snotty" (who knew?) he was willing to take us out to try for something significant. It was very rough and the waves were close together but we had a chance to see/experience kite fishing and use the big rods. Unfortunately, the conditions were not... More

Captain James got us on the fish and helped us get them in. He was very knowledgeable about species and techniques. I would recommend using his services and will use him again when I'm back to west palm.

Captain James knows his craft. My two sons and I booked a half day charter to catch sailfish. Checking in a few days before the trip Captain James was upfront about the slow bite. When we got on the water, we heard over the radio confirmation from all the other captains in the area of how bad the bite was... More

I would highly recommend booking a fishing charter with Captain James Knox at FishCastings in the waters of Palm Beach. Captain Knox did a fantastic job of welcoming us and gearing the trip to our experience level. We knew we were in for some action when he showed us the size of the bait (huge). As you can see from...

We decided to take our family on a fishing trip while in Florida. After doing extensive research we chose to go with Captain James. He was great with our kids, very personable and willing to work with weather conditions. We look forward to chartering with him in the future.

I contacted Captain James knowing nothing about saltwater fishing, only that my dad loved it & it would be an excellent birthday present. Of all the entities I contacted, Captain James was the first to respond and he took his time to teach me about my options. I followed up the next day to confirm the reservation since I was... More

We visited palm beach the first week of June after our May 31 wedding. Our number one thing we wanted to do was a fishing charter. After lots of research on the internet, some emails, and phone calls I found Capt. James Knox. He responded to me promptly with all of the information I needed and was more affordable than... More

I took my 10 year old son out with Captain James yesterday and we had an incredible experience. He is a salt of the earth fisherman who goes the extra mile to make sure everyone is comfortable, catching and having a great time. He was extremely knowledgeable and patient and it was a fantastic experience. Additionally, his boat is clean... More
