After deciding to get away for a few days in November I contacted John and booked two days of fishing. My normal routine for the past decade and a half has been to fish with John during the peak tarpon season, that is, in April and May. Those months are generally predictable when it comes to tarpon fishing, at least on the Shadow Caster with Capt. John. But even in November, I was able to catch and release tarpon. He is a consummate professional and there is not a better guide for fishing the waters of Key West. A day on the Shadow Caster with Capt. John will not disappoint.

I actually caught fish. So many times I would go fishing and never catch anything. Captain John knew where the fish were - I actually caught a fish before my husband. We caught Amber Jack, Goliath Grouper, Nurse and Lemon Sharks. We were trying to stay ahead of the rain that was all around us. Our trip was cut a little bit short but safety is important and we did have a great time. We would recommend ShadowCaster and Captain John for sure and we are excited to do this again when we come back to Key West

Captain Justin was fantastic. Our day started off slow and steady and then we ended it with a bang. 4 back-to-back lemon and black tip sharks on top of multiple fish throughout the day. He did a phenomenal job and our group of best friends enjoyed ourselves and the experience. Highly recommend!

I have fished with charters from Texas to Florida, the Bahamas and the Caribbean and after this week Captain Justin moved to the head of the class, He is not only experienced and knowledgeable but a hell of a good time. I will be back in KW in April to chase tarpon and you can bet it will be with Captain Justin.

Booked a last minute morning charter with Captain Justin and was not disappointed. I knew to not be overly optimistic with late July fishing - light tides, hot water, brutal sun...but the trip was beyond awesome. Totally cool Captain who had us in the ocean and the Gulf and a totally sweet cut between two islands that produced nice snook. Not to mention, a ton of barracuda brought to the boat and, in my experience, the biggest nurse shark I've dealt with. I am a novice angler, so having a total professional running the boat is a must. Justin is that and then some. Highly recommended. We will be back!!!
