Offshore wreck & reef fishing with Capt. Phil Ridge. 28 years as a FULL TIME Marco Island fishing guide. Great boat! Clean restroom, lots of shade, & lots of room to fish. Families & children welcome. Great with kids. Everyone catches fish. Located...more
This charter has no consideration for life or laws. They kill fish that are out of season or over slot with no regard. These are the people that ruin fishing for all of us. Truly makes me sad and angry.
We had a fantastic half day trip out with Pat and Nick spoke with them a few days before and confirmed the booking. Once on the boat we powered out and went on the hunt for some trophy fishing once we had run out of...More
We had a great experience with Cap’n Phil 4 years ago and were so disappointed this year. I think Cap’n Phil is retiring and has Pat taking over. Pat may be a good fisherman, but he’s lacking in the people skills- which you kinda need...More

Captain Pat will put you on the fish. He worked hard to get us trophies and chase several species. We then shifted gears and loaded up on snapper and grouper to fill the cooler. Definitely recommend a trip with Captain Pat!

Captain Patrick was very nice and very knowledgable. Unfortunately the weather was the only reason I wouldn't give our trip an excellent. 3 out of the 5 of us got sick, but he was very helpful and understanding. We caught a ton of fish, but...More

Strange. I put my phone away during trips. Only use it to receive incoming calls. Also I haven't smoked in over 40 years.
Any comments about ones fishing techniques, are meant to improve their results.
Sorry if we didn't catch what you wanted. Some days...More
