When my husband and I got here for our honeymoon, we knew we wanted to do a fishing charter, we just didn't know which one. The guys in the tackle shop were able to help us find one best suited for our honeymoon and picked a guide they thought would work best with us. They picked Mike Basset for us,... More

Charted the famous Catch 22. Early afternoon we ran into a school of mahi and literally were putting fish into the boat faster than we could put them into the hold. My wife sat on the tackle station just to get out of the way. For one day fishing: Triple-tail, Mahi, Swordfish, Grouper, Skippies, and more. It just doesn't get... More

We did the 6 hour "party boat" fishing trip. Everone caught fish and it was a thrill for me, as it was my first time going out to sea to fish. Great day!!!

Went out with Captain Raymond and Justin. Great fishing trip. Justin was amazing with my 4 and 7 year old grandsons. Sea was pretty rough so while a couple of us hugged buckets the others caught quiet a few yellow tail and mangrove snapper. This is second time we have been out with Captain Raymond. Will look forward to going... More

Great Trip. The captain and crew of the Gone Fishin V were very accommodating and did every thing within their power to provide my wife and I a great day of fishing. I will most definitely return.

Just like most places in the keys, been to one, been to them all. We stopped in for bait, old selection to choose from. The live shrimp were very small but we wanted to take the kids fishing. The staff even give the kids some shrimp to feed the tarpons right off the dock.
