All hands on deck!!!! Bo will absolutely wear you out.
Fishing trip August 13, 2021 Captain Bo saved the day, he took us out and wore us down reeling in shark after shark after shark. Bo was so much fun and he knows the area and he knows how to get the fish.

We had the best fishing trip of our lives with Capt. Bo and Mitchell. Not only did we have a blast on his really nice boat but caught endless amounts of grouper and snapper. Not to mention Bo helped us pull in a Goliath grouper so we could snap a quick picture! This was an experience none of us will forget, we have fished a lot on family vacations and honestly this was really incredible. None of us are expert fisherman, Bo helped everyone have a really successful day! Thank you for the laughs and fun Bo we will be back!

My brother and I booked Bo for a day of Tarpon Fishing on October 18th. When we got to North Captiva for our vacation we had several people tell us to not waste our money going after tarpon, there weren't any around this time of year... Bo had some different thoughts about that :). After looking for them in a few spots, Bo caught a load of silver mullet with one cast of his net and we were off to one last spot. As we arrived Bo starting jumping up and down and thanking the fishing Gods. Before the day was over we "jumped" at least 54 tarpon and we both were able to get at least one monster tarpon to the boat. Bo was an incredible Captain who spent most of the day putting fresh mullet on our hooks. It was by far the best day of fishing I have ever had. We were both so exhausted I don't think we could have reeled in another fish. Thank you Bo for taking such great care of my Brother and I and giving us an incredible experience we will never forget. I would highly recommend Bo to everyone if they want to catch fish and have a great time doing it. We hope to make this an annual event and will definitely include a day on the water with Bo if we make it down there.

After moving to Florida in October 2016 and asking a lot of people what guide could put me on a Permit I was told about Bo Johnson. I booked a trip with Bo on July 12, 2018 and I must say it was the best decision I have made in a long time. Bo met me at Pine land Marina in his new 28 foot Blue Wave and soon we were out in Pine Island Sound where Bo netted Threadfin Herring. We rocketed out thru Captiva Pass and after a brief bout with a small Goliath Grouper moved to a new location where Bo put me on my first Permit - a monster that fought valiantly and put me to the test. I was so elated I thought surely I was on some sort of new drug. Then Bo said to me, "Wanna catch a Tarpon?". "Sure" I said and off we went. There were pods of Tarpon all around and before long I jumped what was perhaps an 80# Tarpon and after three jumps was boat side. Then Bo found another pod and we were both hooked up to even larger fish, both which spit the hooks. We called it a day and what a day it was!

I feel privileged to have met and fished with Bo. He is very personable and engaging and man oh man does he know how to locate and catch fish. Bo is also a great coach while
you are fighting a fish. This day was on par with some of the days I have had fishing the Pacific coast of Panama. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give Bo a 10 without hesitation and I cannot wait to get back out with him again.

Highly recommended without hesitation. Paul Kiefner, Cape Cral, Florida

Bo knows the water better than anyone. We went out on a not so perfect day and within minutes we had fish in the boat. With Tenacity you not only fish with hook and line but they also offer Bowfishing which let me tell you I am hooked. We landed 7 different types of fish and just when I thought we had enough Bo took us to his shark hole and we got 2 sharks in minutes. Hands down the best fishing guide service in the area and would go again any time I can.

We left from Pine Land Marina with Captain Bo Johnson on a windy afternoon thinking that there wouldn't be much fish to catch. We went Bonita and Shark fishing and we only caught one Bonita and a few other small fish BUT we caught a huge 300 lb grouper and another grouper that must have been much larger because the fishing line snapped. We also caught a 6 foot Black Tip Shark and a 9 foot Bull Shark! It was an absolute blast, best fishing trip I have ever been on period. Took all the energy out of me but it was worth it. Captain Bo is the nicest man and the most amazing fisherman and this trip is a 100% must do.

My adult son and I had a 6 hour fishing trip with Captain Bo; to say it was an amazing trip would be an understatement! Bo knows where the fish are and how to bring them into the boat. We went out in the Gulf and fought/caught tons of fish. Both of us caught our “biggest fish ever”. Amber Jacks a plenty and lots of good take home and eat fish as well. Not only does Bo know how to fish he is a lot of fun too and his boat is great! Definitely making plans for another trip!
