Capt. Lewis did a wonderful job from answering my questions before scheduling to the day of trip. He was very patient with our 2 young sons. The boat had enough room for all 6 in our group. The boys enjoyed the lower deck shade. Everyone in our group caught at least one shark- the biggest being a nurse shark. It... More

He was an amazing guide and helped me throughout the whole trip as I have never been before. I caught 6 sharks in total: 1 Atlantic Sharp Nose @ 3 feet... More

What an awesome experience! Captain Lewis brings excitement along with the professionalism and safety that the job requires. You can really tell that the man loves his job! My family and I were able to reel in 6 good size sharks and the 7th one being about 9 ft long! I would highly recommend Mac-Attack Charters!

Captain Lewis is an amazing Captain! He has amazing pride in his boat and craft! Six of us went out and limited out on Grouper on our trip. He made sure we all had a grasp on the different techniques needed to catch ocean fish. We as a group are skilled in fishing of the Great Lakes and he made... More

Captain Lewis gave us everything for our money today. His boat is extremely comfortable and clean. We caught our limit of 30 mangrove snappers in no time at all. We also caught some gag groupers (HUGE) but had to release them as it was not their season. He has all the equipment needed for finding fish and different rods for... More

Our group of 5 took a half day trip on the MacAttack to celebrate my daughters birthday. We went 27 miles offshore and caught 24 red snappers and threw back at least 30 other fish. Among the species we threw back were red grouper, trigger fish, porgies, grunts and one gag grouper. Captain Lewis MacDonald was the ultimate professional. His... More
