Action packed 4 hours, Stewart got my two daughters and I straight onto the sea trout, catching consistently on live bait, shrimp and Stewart even got me catching them on the lure. Stewart worked hard to catch our bait as the weather had turned cold, he was very patient and taught us beginners how to fish florida style. He even... More

First and foremost, this is one of the best inshore / near shore captains there is. Extremely knowledgeable of the area the water, rules, regulations and where to catch fish. When you go with Gone Fishing Charters, you won't be saying I went fishing, you will be saying I went catching! Never have I been so delighted in a fishing... More

We had three on the boat and I learned so much that day. Cap got us on fish fast and we fished a few different ways that day. I caught(snagged) a once in a lifetime shrimp. We fished light/medium tackle so it was not a hook and pull Fishing. I live local and will go again soon.

My lifetime friend and I recently visited Tampa for our 12th annual bucket list fishing trip . We fished for two days with Captain Stewart and he worked harder than any guide we have used over the past twelve years. His equipment was high quality and his boat was like perfect. I caught snook , 8 lb redfish, and a... More

My husband and I recently moved to Florida and have done some pier fishing, but we weren't having much luck. For our anniversary, I surprised my husband by booking this charter trip. We could not have had a better time. Captain Stewart was excellent at finding good spots to fish, and seemed as excited as we were when we caught... More

I went through dozens of reviews to find a fishing charter for our family trip to Tampa Bay and narrowed it down to 2 of them. I contacted both of them and Capitan Stewart Ames was the first to get back to me and was quickest to respond to my emails, which is a big deal to me. Storms developed... More

Capt. Ames provided us with a phenomenal experience. He is a serious down to business guy, who is also an excellent communicator and conveys great enthusiasm about fishing. Admirably skilled and self-disciplined, he's an all around impressive guy. On arrival at Merino's Marina, we found the boat to be top notch, very clean and perfectly organized with excellent tackle and... More

My husband and I have been married for 31 years and in all that time, we were never able to afford to go on a "real" vacation. Last month was the first time we have ever been able to take a week long trip and the #1 thing we looked most forward to, was to go out for a day... More

My son and I joined Captain Stewart at 8:00 AM and found he was totally prepared. The boat was spotless, the rods were rigged and he had gone out at 6:00 AM to catch bait. By 8:15 we were catching fish and ended up with close to 25 trout by 11:30. For a change of pace we chased red fish... More

After taking another charter trip with Capt. Stewart Ames with my son and our friend, we were rewarded with great memories, super photos, and 30 plus redfish and trout!! It does not get any better than that!! As a Pinellas County citizen, fortunate enough to live on the water, who tries hard to catch fish on my own, nothing compares... More
