Had an amazing time fishing with Capt. Justin. Me and my wife managed to catch several species. Justin put us on fish everywhere we stopped. Extremely knowledgeable and an all around fun experience. Catching 4 sharks was the highlight of the trip! Even had time to stop on a sandbar to cool off! Highly recommended Shadow Caster and Captain Justin!

Captain Justin took good care of us today. We caught two sharks each and tried our best in several locations to catch barracuda. Lots of barracuda chasing our lures but no catches. Funniest part is that a sea gull picked up my shrimp lure 3 times from the water so I know it looked real! Thanks for a great day Justin!

Captain John gave us a wonderful experience with our first “flats” fishing trip! We had a blast fishing for barracuda and sharks. Although I am incredibly scared of any type of shark - I was surprised how exciting it was to reel one in! Captain John even wrangled a smaller one my 13 yo caught and brought it on board for a quick picture - such a great day!! Highly recommend if you get the opportunity to spend the day fishing with John and Shadow Caster charter fishing!!

I booked a trip during our vacation with Captain Justin. If I could give 10 stars I would and still feel that rating is not good enough. What an amazing experience!!! Justin is absolutely the best captain I have had the pleasure of meeting. He took the time to explain everything he could about fishing Key West, he is extremely friendly, personable, and absolutely knows where to find fish. We were the only boat that landed a tarpon on the day we went (The tarpon was 150 lbs!) We also hooked up two other tarpon. My girlfriend and I both caught barracuda as well. His boat was well stocked with beverages for the 8 hour trip around the island. If you are in Key West and want a fishing trip - this is a must book!!! AMAZING. We have friends that recommended Shadow Casters and have used them every single time they come to Key West. This far exceeded my expectations! Great job Captain Justin and thank you.

We recently had three excellent days of fishing in Key West backcountry with Captain John Smouse of Shadowcaster Fishing. We landed fourteen tarpon and dozens of other fish (mutton snapper, jacks, etc.). Our goal is simple--a fun day on the water and lots of bent rods. Goal overachieved! John is an excellent guide, always putting us on the fish and hustling to help in any way possible. And great company out on the water. We have used other guides from Islamorada to Key West and John is #1 with us. We will hire him again next year for sure. Highly recommended.
