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.

This guy takes fishing seriously. He tries very hard to get you fish. If nothing hits he moves to another spot. We caught 8 different species in 6 hours and enough snapper to take to a local restaurant and cook up. He also has a great sense of humor. Be prepared for a fun day and listen to captain Drew!!

My wife and I had a great time with Capt. Drew! Super knowledgeable, patient, and just a good guy to be on the water with. He put us on the fish, cleaned them after, and even recommended a great place to have our catch cooked. I couldn’t ask for a better day on a boat than what I had today. Without a doubt Drew will be the first call I make when I return to Islamorada to book another fishing trip.

We love captain Drew!
Second time and we will not go fishing with anyone else.
He was so amazing showing me how to fish while my husband could concentrate on his own fishing.
He is so knowledgable about the area and the waters we were fishing in.
Book him you will have a fabulous time.

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!

I’ve been fishing for over 5 decades and fishing can be tough as it depends alot on if the fish are bitting. Drew did an amazing job getting us 4 Tarpons which awesome as they are the best game fish I’ve ever caught. Everyone of the breached and if you haven’t done tarpon fishing you gotta do it. We tried for some grouper but didn’t have any luck but didn’t pretty well with the snapper. Next time I have more time I’ll plan better and go for some larger tarpon with Drew!

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!

I first went out on a fishing charter with Drew three years ago. He is my first call every time I return. He grew up in Islamorada and has great knowledge of the inshore and back country fishing spots. On my recent trip we were fishing for snapper and porgy and came across sailfish feeding. Thanks to Drew’s expertise I was able to catch my first sailfish. With Drew one day your catching sailfish and the next day you are in the back country catching snook, red fish and speckled trout. I highly recommend Captian Drew if you want to have a great fishing experience in the Keys.

Captain Drew was super accommodating and professional during our fishing charter! He was flexible and well versed in the Florida Keys fishing territory. He took us to multiple spots where we were lucky enough to catch a large Tarpon and multiple snappers that we cooked for dinner that same day! We can highly recommend Fishy Business Charters & we will be back again as well! Thank you Drew!
