We took our boys ages 16 and 10 out with Captain Jim. We had a great time catching a variety of fish. At the end we caught a shark. Jim was patient and taught them to cast with a spinning rod. They talked about Capt Jim the rest of the day. Even walking on the beach at sunset my 16 year old asked if I thought Capt Jim was thinking about our fishing trip.

This fishing trip was the highlight of our vacation, we got so much out of it. There were seven in our group so we chartered two boats. Captain Jimmy was ours and Captain Josh on the other they were both really great! My boys are eleven, thirteen, and sixteen and they really enjoyed the shark fishing. They all caught one and my youngest caught the biggest one, too big to get in the boat! It was a gorgeous day, we also caught 25-30 other fish and even saw dolphins! They can’t wait to do this again. Great company to work with and super nice. Absolutely no complaints, do this and you will be so glad you did.

Had a great day with my three teens (2 daughters and son). Started out fishing for bait and instantly caught several torpedo Spanish Mackeral. My daughter hooked a tarpon also. Was just as much fun fishing for bait as fishing for shark. So much fun we ended up throwing a line in when we were fishing for bait. Glad we did we pulled in a 6-7 foot nurse shark. Finally ended that area and went to another to catch some 3-6 foot shark. Caught black tip, black nose, spinner, and lemon shark. Jim SR is the man and puts you on fish. Can’t wait to go out with him again. Was best trip we ever had with a charter in Captiva.
