My 14 year old son and I went on a fishing trip to the backcountry with Capt. Rick Stancyzk on Oct. 16th. Couldn't have had more fun! We hooked five tarpon, landed three including two 80lb. fish, plus several sharks, snook, a redfish, and several other species. Rick is professional, knowledgeable, and very patient. We will definitely be coming back.... More

Let me start off by saying I'm an inshore/offshore captain out of Cape Canaveral. I know when mother nature makes being a guide tough. Often you won't ever get what you ask for and its up to the Skippy to make your trip great at that point. Opting out of the offshore fishing because we catch the same stuff up... More

Through the marina we booked Captain Vincent Biondoletti who helped our 13 year old son fulfill his dream of catching (and releasing) a 100 lb + bull shark! They even saw a crocodile! He was very good with him and a very professional guide. The marina was great to work with also.

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

We went on a full day charter on the Predator. The day before our charter we went into the marina and found out that the sail fish had been biting even though it was not the season for them yet. The day of our charter we hooked eleven sails and caught nine. We also caught a couple of Bonita. What... More
