Captain Mike and Groovy exceeded our expectations. Chartered with Huntress for 8 hr. trip with all our family. They worked hard to keep us catching fish. On our last stop for the day before returning to Destin, we caught 2 large Cobia - approx. 60 lbs and 50 lbs. I highly recommend this charter. Entire trip will be one that... More

We booked a 6 hour trip worried that kids would be ready to quit, but we wished we had booked a longer trip as we had a great morning. We went for red snapper and caught our limit and some nice size ones. We then were able to do some other sport fishing the rest of the time. Captain Mike... More

Captain Mike and Groovy were awesome. Captain Mike worked hard to find us fish and Groovy never missed a beat even when things got busy!! Highly recommend this boat and crew. We got Tuna (Blackfin and Yellowfin), Grouper, Mackerel, Bonita, AmberJack (had to throw back, out of season) and a slew of Red Snapper

What a great time... Capt. Mike and mate Groovy made sure we caught our limit of Snapper and they were huge!!! Great team! We definitely will come back (17 hours flight time from Germany ... thanks to great friends for having us over 😉) Also, wenn Hochseefischen in Florida, dann mit der Huntress!

We had a great time. The seas were a little rough but we made the best of it and still caught our limit of Red Snapper. Capt. Mike and Groovy were excellent just like everyone says. Groovy had our hooks baited the second they came up, there was no down time. He made sure our hooks were always in the... More

I was invited at the last minute to go out with this charter. Capt Mike and Groovy did a great job. We loaded the boat with snapper, grouper, scamp and one elusive Tuna caught by the first timer. The boat was pleasant and a very nice set up for 6 to fish comfortably. I would definitely recommend them. "Fish on!"

Another fantastic trip with Captain Mike and Groovy! This was the fourth trip with our current group - although I've fished with Mike & Groovy many times previously. What a team! They have ALWAYS put us on the fish! Most professional, and with safety at top of mind, they are clearly always focused on making sure that their guests have... More

Trip 23 with The Huntress was another memorable one. These guys are THE BEST I have ever fished with (30+ charters). Biggest Grouper yet 6 days ago, and a couple of 20+ pounders to go along with the monster. Limited out on Red Snapper which happens EVERY time when in season with Captain Mike and Groovy, the best crew EVER!... More
