My son and I had a great day on the water with Capt. Rapps. I'm new to Florida and he patiently explained all that we did and saw, from cast-netting live bait to start the day, to providing help on catching the wide variety of fish we got. My first three fish got me an Everglades Slam, and the day kept getting better. Capt. Pete knew all the spots to work and they were productive. His 24 foot bay boat was a spacious platform to fish from. Looking forward to future trips with him.

Thank John P

We met Capt Pete Rapps at 8am after spending the night at the Everglades City Motel (basic accommodation, but clean and good en suite).
From the outset, Pete put us at ease with his friendly and patient approach with my never-before-fished wife, and his professionalism.
From the other boats we saw, Pete's appeared towards the higher end, having sufficient space for 4-5 passengers, and all the tackle and bait you could need.
We caught 10 or 11 different species, all of which we were able to return in good health, and had a great day.
Capt Rapps is not the cheapest, but I suggest it's a corner you don't cut!
Thanks Pete

This was my third trip with Captain Rapps but my first in the backwaters near Chokolskee. Once again Captain Rapps exceed my expectation and provided an awesome day of fishing. After a great day on the water he cleaned all of our fish and provided some of his exceptional spices which made for a fantastic dinner! The jerk seasoning is the best I have had outside of Jamaica. Thanks again Captain Rapps!

Two of us spent the whole day catching sea trout, sheephead, and lady fish. To say that we boated 100 fish is not an exaggeration. The morning was topped off by boating a 25" sea trout!
Then for fun we requested an opportuntiy to catch a snook. Captain Rapps did not disappoint. We drilled 4 snook and a red fish before a 10' gator interupted our fun! One of the snook topped 28"!
The boat was comfortable and the service was top notch. By the way, Captain Rapps is great guy and it just made the day all the more enjoyable! The ultimate question for satisfaction is "would I fish with Captian Rapp again?" and the answer is absolutely.
