My grandson and I booked an all day trip out of Anclote , be sure to bring a camera.

Capt. John was very knowledgeable and knew every rock and blade of grass out there. I would highly recommend a charter with Capt. John to anyone. I look forward to our next one.

Capt. John Fischbach did an amazing job. We wanted to focus on inshore fish and Capt. John put us on Trout and Redfish first thing in the morning. Second day we were on Snook. We got to experience many different areas of the Anclote Key / New Port Richey hot spots. He worked very hard all day both days and... More

When taking your 9-year old son fishing while on vacation, there is always the risk that he'll not catch anything. That being said, Capt. John made it his mission to make sure we hooked and landed some fish during our visit to Clearwater. We set up the departure time based on tide and weather via cell phone the night before... More

Had an awesome trip with Captain John. He put us on snook, trout, redfish, and we even had a chance at some tarpon. Highly recommended! Will definitely be back next time we visit Florida.

My first ever inshore/flats trip was awesome, thanks to Captain John, and his deck hand Michael. Managed the inshore slam of redfish, snook, and spotted trout....amongst the days catch. Great time, great guys, I will be back!

On March 30 and 31 2016, my brother in law and myself spent two absolutely perfect days fishing with Capt. John and his first mate Micheal. We took an offshore trip on the first day and caught so many fish that it had us worn completely out by the end of the day! We saw grouper, amberjack, cobia, snapper, seabass,... More
