Loved dark side Charters!! Capt. Mike and first mate Ron were great! We caught our limit and my husband even had a tangle with a huge cobia! It is his “the one that got away tale”. Would definitely book this charter again!!!!

Best trip I’ve been on! I’ve been fishing all over the country and by far my favorite! Captain knew exactly where to catch the big ones and Luke kept the baits fresh and dropping fast. Extremely friendly and knowledgeable.
