Capain Frank was the best! He took us out pretty far and was able to show our group how to fish properly even though none of us had ever done it before! He even took the time to teach us how he was finding the fish and how he lures the sharks. He clearly put a lot of effort into the trip and was very attentive the whole time. It was definitely a trip I would go on again, and hopefully will the next time I'm in Fort Meyers. He even knows how to deal with seasickness! Overall a very fun trip, and Captain Frank is friendly and helpful. Don't miss out on this, it's amazing!

I loved fishing with Captain Frank! I had never been deep sea fishing and I definitely want to go again. It was tons of fun and Frank was so helpful. He's fun and really knows his stuff. I got seasick and still had an amazing time. Frank has really good advice on how to handle seasickness too. We went for a couple hours and caught tons of fish and afterwards he scaled them for us and told us a restaurant we could go to on Sanibel that would cook our fish for us!

Captain Frank knows how to deliver. He works hard to make sure the trip goes swimmingly. The day was windy and not looking good for fishing, but he made it happen. We were reeling in fish after fish and ended the day by pulling in a pair of huge bull sharks! Can't wait to go back out with him.

Had an awesome time! Captain Frank knew where to get the big fish and my sister caught her first shark.

What an excitement !!

What started to be a slow fishing trip turned into one of our best family experiences ever - cold weather, no fish biting - but Cap'n Frank turned our luck around stating "we're not going fishing - we're going for the biggest fish you ever caught !".

And that's exactly what happened - after finding a good spot it was just a matter of time...
Caught a couple of good size bait fish and then set out to catch big with that - soon we got dragged around the boat wrestling 200+ pound Bull Sharks !!

What a thrill - and great advice !! - even our younger kids were bringing in full size sharks with the help of Cap'n Frank. See the picture.

Great fun and excitement, excellent explanations - and big sharks !!
