We did a full day back country trip with Captain Drew. The very first stop he put us on some mangrove snapper since we wanted something we could take and have cooked. We hit our limit on the mangrove snapper within about 30 minutes. We spent the rest of the day jumping around to different spots catching Goliath grouper, jacks, and two huge snook. We had a great time and Drew was super patient and a great teacher. We will definitely be using him in the future and recommend him to both novice and experienced fishermen.

Went out with Capt Drew on a 6 hour trip starting at 7:30 am. Learned very interesting history about the Keys and also got an Ecotour of the Everglades. He is extremely knowledgeable about the area and took us to spots filled with fish. Once the bait was back on the line, it only took about a minute or two to reel in another trout or red snapper. As amateur level fisherman, he made it very easy for us to learn techniques and feel like we’ve been fishing for years. To top it off my son had a blast catching a 4 foot barracuda. Perfect end to the day was getting our fresh catch prepared into some of the best fish tacos ever! Fishy Business is the charter to book if you’re looking for a great fishing experience in the Keys!

Stellar day of fishing yesterday with Capt Drew in Islamorada Fl at Bass Pro Shop. We caught a 6 - 8 ft Tarpon, a Cubera Snapper, a couple of 6 - 9 ft Nurse Sharks and a 200 + pound Goliath Grouper. I live in S Fl and fish 2 - 3 times a month. Highly recommend this Capt. He was an expert fishing guide. Extremely friendly, helpful and put us on the fish. Amazing memorable day!

This was our second time out with Captain Drew. We booked this charter for our daughter’s 11th birthday. She was so excited to fish with Drew again. She caught her first Goliath Grouper, along with Snook, Snapper, and a Jack. He is so patient and an excellent teacher, always giving us tips and tricks during our fishing experience. After we arrived back at the dock, our daughter was already asking when we could come back to fish with him again!

This past weekend my one year old and I went fishing with Captain Drew and had the most amazing time! I was so impressed by his patience and ability to cater the trip to our needs! My daughter had the time of her life from playing in the bait well to catching her very first fish! At first, I was nervous about taking a one year old out for a day of fishing but as soon as we got out there I was instantly able to to relax- the T-top provided the perfect amount of shade and there was very little that my baby could get into. On top of this, the amount of fish we caught was amazing! I could not recommend a more experienced or family friendly captain and boat!!
