Jack was friendly and guided on an excellent and memorable fishing trip into Florida Bay. He went out of our way to accommodate our desires for fish based on our experience and fish we wanted to cook. Ended up catching the limit of Spanish mackerel and snapper. Followed by catching a large hammerhead shark which we safely released. Jack was willing to take lots of photos and teach a beginner how to fish. He also cleaned the fish which we were able to eat as fresh sushi and many more meals. Excellent in following covid protocols as well. Would highly recommend.

Captain Jack was easy to get in contact with, and was very flexible for a busy holiday period. He was the only charter to quickly call me back and make arrangements to fit us in. Our goal was to catch a lot of fish to feed our family vacation of 11...Captain Jack delivered. We had enough to feed our family for three days. Between the four of us we caught our limit of snapper and even a mackerel. I’m looking forward to booking with him in the Spring.

Unbelievable action and great trip. Capt. Jack is very calm and works great with kids. Laid back and knows the waters very well. Filled our cooler with fish fillets to take home. You won’t be disappointed chartering him. Limited out. I would highly recommend him. We will book again. I know another guy who charters with him who has always been successful and has enjoyed every trip with Capt .Jack. A++ GUIDE !

My boys 9 years old and 11 years old and husband went with Captain Jack on their first ocean fishing experience! My boys caught some of the most amazing fish and Captain Jack and his first mate puppy Pirhana made it the most memorable and enjoyable experience! My boys learned a lot and caught a ton! They haven’t stopped talking about their special trip! We would highly recommend booking a tour!

I took my two boys, age 8 and 11yo and their 12 friend. The friend never had fished and was scared of boats. After a short ride in choppy waters, Captain Jack dropped anchor and every time the boys dropped bait in the water they pulled up a keeper. That went on for about an hour and all the boys were thrilled. Yellowtail and lane snapper. Now the friend wants to fish for a living. Thanks, Jack, for the best memory of our trip! We will book again soon.
