Captain Fred does an outstanding job and I’d highly recommend him to anyone looking to have a great day on the water! We had a day we won’t forget.

Capt Fred kept me informed via text messages from the time of booking up till our arrival. Very nice and informative, I brought my wife and 2 of my children ages 5 and 12. He kept all of use engaged with fishing and was attentive to my wife and children. We will definitely be using Capt Fred on our future trips to Daytona Beach.

Be prepared that the charges listed are not what you will pay. The night before the trip, I receive a text that the charge is an additional $25 for "live shrimp"+ a gratuity charge that is unspecified. The day of the trip the weather wasn't ideal. Captain Fred took us to three unsuccessful spots, all of which were located near someone's backyard dock and one under a bridge. Only one in our party of 4 had fished before, but he explained nothing about the process, what to do etc. As for the $25 additional charge for "live shrimp", very few were used, mostly he used other small fish. The few fish caught were thrown back because they were too small. Although the weather was poor and that isn't his fault, I expected from the way it was advertised that he would made sure that we went to spots where we would catch something. He seemed to linger a long time in three spots that you could have fished off a dock. In the end we came away with no fish and if I was going to spend $25 on shrimp, I would have preferred to be able to eat them.

I am sorry ,you not have fish to keep ,but if a snook is ender or over 28 to 32 inch ,a redfish over 27 inch or mangrove snapoer ender 10 inch is a law ,you can t keep the fish is a felony i loose my licence,my boat and every one go to jail,and we fish the dock and inshore because when is 15 to 20miles wind and 6 feets wave, i can t take you to the inlet and near shore,and you complain i charge you 25 $ dollars of shrimp,is on my webside,and i d ont charge you for the bait i catch with my cast net at 3 am in the morning, i feel pain to see the review you write to me Capt fred

My son and I went fishing with Captain Fred on Friday. Captain Fred took us to three different locations, all of them with solid action. The first fish I pulled in was the biggest I've ever caught. Between my son and I, we must have caught around 40 fish. There is a reason these guys have such a good reason on Trip Advisor. I will definitely be booking them again when we visit this summer.
