Took my son out for his 18th birthday and had a great day! Capt John was professional and fun. Caught a wide variety of fish - snapper, grunts, sea bass, barracuda, shark and flounder. Took the flounder to a local restaurant and had a yummy lunch afterwards. Thanks Capt John!

My wife and I went out with Captain John for a off shore fishing charter. We started catching red snapper & sharks right after he put anchor done. John is very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. We will definitely use him again and recommend him to others.

My 12 year old son and I went out with Captain John for a half day of fishing. Little did I know we would be making some of the best memories of our lives. We started catching a little bit of everything from trout, red snapper, flounder, to OCTOPUS! Then the action really got going when my son hooked a hammerhead on one line and we hooked a bonito on another! Captain John was great with my son and showing a couple of mid America land lovers the ropes. In between the fishing action we shared stories and laughed all morning. It was a great time all the way around and we can't wait to go again. Thanks for everything Captain John and see you again soon!

Okay this was hands down the best part of any trip I’ve ever been on. John was calm when teaching my family and me the ropes of deep sea fishing. He laughed, joked, and ran around the entire boat helping us girls reel some awesome puppy sharks in one after another. All while cutting fresh bait for us to be able cast out again right after a catch. He never took a moment from us, allowing us to each take as many pictures with what we caught and admire each other’s catches the whole trip. I can remember it so well, the excitement everyone had for each other when our poles started to bend! I have told everyone I know about this trip and have never wanted to go back and do something again as much as I want to go back and join John on another excursion. I 150% recommend this trip to anyone of all ages. John makes it so fun and interesting, giving you lots of information on the creatures beneath you. YOU SHOULD DO THIS! I can’t wait to go back for my next vacation.
