We caught 200+ snapper and about 6-8 Grouper in about 3 hours of fishing and an hour boat ride each way. Constant action and brought in our limit of 60 Snapper. Captain Ed cleaned them up for us and we had a great dinner that evening. Froze the rest and had enough left-over for a neighborhood feed the following month. Highly recommend Ed.

Captain Ed put us on fish right away. Went out as a group of 4 we all caught fish and plenty of them. If we fished a spot and the fish quit bitting we moved to another spot and caught fish right away. Captain Ed very knowledgeable. Service and hospitality was outstanding could not of expected anything more.

We had a family day of fishing with Captain Ed. The fishing was great, we all caught fish and Capt Ed could not have been more helpful. The boat was clean and the equipment was in great shape. Capt. Ed was very helpful with the ladies as it was their first time fishing.

Captain Ed is a professional. My family and I took a 1/2 day fishing trip with him last week that was incredible. I love fishing when I travel and have been on quite a few "boat rides" without catching anything. I live in Naples and decided to try Captain Ed because a friend told me about him. The trip was fantastic. We caught our limit in about 45 minutes and kept fishing throwing them back. Grouper and Snapper were great and my son had quite a time with a 4 foot shark. The boat is fast and comfortable and Captain Ed works hard to please.

Knowledgeable, courteous and great with kids. We have fished twice with Capt. Ed and have done nothing but caught fish! Great guy and a great time. He knows where the honey holes are. Highly recommended if you want to catch fish and have a good time.
