All I can do is echo what earlier reviewers wrote. Captain George is an amazing guy, very knowledgeable, patient with novices like me and 'experts' like my 10 year old and his best friend, and friendly. We caught dozens of snook, two jacks, and some very tasty trout. You cannot go wrong going fishing with Captain George.

We caught sea trout redfish, jack and others. We kept a dozen trout(maximum allowed). Captain George cleaned and filleted the fish. We pan fried them that day and family and guests loved... More

We had the pleasure of spending the day on the water with Captain George today! In addition to perfect weather conditions, this knowledgeable young man took us fishing. Not only did he know where those sea trout were hiding, but als showed us an incredible side of southwest Florida. In addition to the 15 sea trout (legal limit) that we... More

Can't say enough great things about Captain George. My brother and I chartered for a half day. Probably 30 trout, some sheepshead and a redfish. Also caught a nice snook. When I'm back in PG, I'll book with Captain George

We've gone out a few times now with Capt. George. Always have a good time. Kid friendly and accommodating to his guests. Oh yeah, he knows his stuff too.

My wife and I fished with Capt. George Frantz this past week and had a super trip. This is our second outing with him and both have been excellent. We caught 30+ snook on live bait in about an hour and a half. They were hitting as soon as we got the bait in the water. There were numerous times... More

We booked a trip with Capt George based on the reviews on tripadvisor, and were not disappointed. George is a great captain who knows where the fish are. He is so attentive and patient, even with novices. We had a fabulous day on the water with him and took home enough fish for dinner. If you want to go fishing... More

Also caught 3 nice trout which Capt. George cleaned for us to take home. Top notch boat and fishing equipment. If... More
