We did a half day trip with Cap't Jim and First Mate Josh. They were wonderful! We had 8 people total including 4 young kids, two of which had never been fishing and were a little nervous starting out. Jim and Josh made sure that the hooks were always baited and that everyone was having fun. The two little ones... More

We chartered A&B for a half day fishing excursion out of Naples, FL. Captain Jim and first mate Josh were extremely patient and friendly. The crew took care of all of our needs and showed us (most of us complete fishing rookies) what to do. We had great luck and everyone on the boat caught fish. We returned to the... More

We had the most awesome time! Captain Jim and crew are clearly experienced, professional, and worked hard to ensure we enjoyed ourselves. The spots chosen for fishing could not have been better...Captain Jim knows the Gulf! Highly recommend A&B and Captain Jim,

Do not book with CAPTAIN JOE, he is something else, words can't describe how unprofessional this company runs their business! We booked their shared charter months in advance and had to continually call to make sure that we were still good for our confirmed date, not once did this captain call us to confirm, each time we called it was...

Not worth the money we spent or time wasted at the dock getting the run around of which boat we were going on and when we did leave our time was limited without any discount, let alone any good keepers to take home.

We have no record of ever taking this individual on a charter with our company and suspect this is a review by a competitor or disgruntled ex-employee or friend of ex-employee. Our company takes thousands of individuals and hundreds of groups on deep sea fishing charters every year and are always trying to exceed expectations. If this individual is a... More

Left port in dense fog but found our way anyway. Captain (Captn Bobby ?) and mate were fantastic. After a quick trip out to area they suggested we fish, we dropped our lines and immediately 3 of 4 our us had hooked either stripped Bass or Grouper. My guess is we caught about 100 fish during the next couple of... More

I arranged an all day fishing charter on March 12, 2016 for our 30-year old son, who is getting married in April, his 28-year old brother, who flew in from Menlo Park, CA, and two of Bill's friends from Chicago. The 5 of us caught over 200 fish and took home almost 75 pounds of fresh fish fillets that Capt... More

Well, Joe Wallburn did it again. Joe is a living, breathing fish locator, better than the electronics on my own boat. This was the 4th time I have fished with A&B Charter and I was simply looking for another great day on the gulf, catching my share of some nice fish. Well, the day started off with a bang with...
