GREAT family adventure. Captain Ted is the best. We did a 1/2 day charter and it was awesome. We caught a lot of fish and the family had a lot of fun. The weather was great, we had a lot of laughs and great time was had by all. Perfect for 1st timers.

Captain Ted's fishing charter was wonderful! He was patient, kind, knowledgeable, laid back, and generous with his time! He made it his priority to make sure everyone in our group had a successful catch...(and they did!) He made booking easy, took us out for longer than our scheduled tome, and helped us clean our fish. He took our whole party of 6 out and let them all fish...(when others we called would not). I would recommend him to anyone looking to enjoy a day of fishing and would definitely book with him again!

With hesitation on my behalf, my husband and I booked a private fishing charter with Captain Ted. However, once we were there, Captain Ted easily proved his expertise with fishing, the intracoastal, a beautiful new boat and interesting conversation. He expertly baited every single fishing rod for us, sometimes even casting, getting it loose from wherever we got tangled up with [be it sea shells, seaweed, a rock, a dock, whatever it was]. He is such an expert fisherman, he knows exactly which type of fish will be in each location. In addition, he can tell you exactly what you've hooked just by watching how the line is being tugged. He was correct 100% of the time!! Right off the bat, my husband caught 2 rather large Red Fish. By the end of the 1/2 day [which he was quite generous and stayed out longer than 4 hours] we had bagged 3 Red Fish [our limit], 1 delicious Snapper, a Trout, a Grouper [which we had to throw back because it was too small to keep], a Key West Grunt and countless catfish. He was such a good sport about keeping the fishing rods loaded with bait. He worked the entire time!!! He also cleaned our fish, cut it into reasonable pieces and recommended taking it to Crabby Bill's for cooking and sides. We took his advice and it was the best anniversary meal ever! It was a fabulous way to spend the day with my husband on our anniversary and definitely worth the price!

Awesome day with Captain Ted inland fishing! Reds, flounder, trout, gray snapper... Both kids, 15 years old, caught bigger fish than they ever have! Captain Ted knows his stuff! Thank you Sir for a great day on the water! -Bryan Phillips

Our family of 4 went fishing with Capt Ted June 2015. He made sure to ask us what we wanted to do and catch. He already caught the bait fish earlier in the morning before we got there so we got to go right to catching the big stuff! We has a blast with our two boys catching sharks and trout. Our youngest son liked watching the bait swim around. I'd recommend Capt Ted to anyone and we are planning our next fishing trip with him!
