I have never been fishing, so I did not know what to expect. My friend and I charted the boat for the day. We met Jon and Gary at the boat at 6:15 in the morning. They were so friendly, I knew we had made a great choice for our first charter. We headed out to the reef, and caught about 12 yellow tail snappers. It was awesome for my first fishing experience. Gary and Jon helped us get comfortable with the equipment, and got us going immediately. It was so fun. Once the yellow tail stopped biting, Jon moved us to a different location to catch some bait for our larger fishing experience. We headed out to sea. Gary had me on a 40 pound Amberjack in just a few minutes. It was a fight ( probably not for them) that I wanted to experience. I had the time of my life. It was worth the money. I had the time of my life. I would recommend Jon and Gary to everyone I can. Jon/Gary, thank you for the experience of a lifetime.

We took our whole family of 4 - kids 7&9 - out with Capt Jon for a half day fishing trip for spring break. It was amazing! He put us right on some beautiful yellowtail snapper within just a few minutes of being out. He’s truly an expert. He guided us right through the whole process of catching each fish and made the trip fun for all of us! At one point there was a barracuda eating the fish we were catching and he knew exactly how to make it leave us alone. The boat was clean and well maintained and even though it was a little rocky we felt completely safe. We will definitely be back for a trip with Capt Jon on the Drop Back!

A great day on the water. Jon and TJ were very expert, and also very down to earth and hard working. We fished hard and it paid off with a lot of fun fishing. A big thumbs up!

My husband and I and our two teens had a great time on the evening shark and tarpon fishing charter with Captain Jon and TJ. They worked so hard to make the trip a memorable one for our family. My son was able to reel in a 7 foot nurse shark and our daughter reeled in a 5 foot nurse shark. It was easily the highlight of our vacation, what an amazing experience! Not only were Jon and TJ super knowledgeable about their craft, but they were fun to hang out with. We will definitely book with them if we are ever in the Keys again.

Our group (4 adults and 2 teenagers) had an amazing 3/4 day trip on the Dropback today. Capt Jon and TJ are excellent guides and even better guys. They taught us a ton about fishing in the area and were very patient with all members of the group. The boys each were able to land a Mahi which they will remember for a long time. If you are thinking about booking a charter fishing trip, look no further...the Dropback is the way to go.
