Thank you to Capt. Mike for an amazing morning of fishing last Thursday! I lost count of how many fish and species of fish we caught. Though they weren't huge fish, they bit hard and fought good---even compared to some larger fish we've caught back home in MN. So fun to reel them in, and always anxious to see what kind of fish we had on the end of the line! Sheepshead, stingrays, ladyfish, mackerel, catfish, and even a puffer fish (boy was that an experience!)...and more. Hoping to get back to FM next month with the kids, and will definitely be fishing with Capt. Mike again when we return.

The sunset was just the icing on the cake. Captain Gale seemed to have the dolphin and other wildlife performing on cue. Dolphins jumping the wake was the best. Learned a lot about the bird life on the bay. Would recommend to everyone!

Captain Gale gave us a really interesting tour through Good Time Charters yesterday. We went on the three-hour ecological tour in the morning and saw a variety of wildlife- birds galore, manatees, starfish, crabs and of course- dolphins! Captain Gale knew just where to go to find the dolphins feeding with their pod. We saw a mother and her calf. Later in the morning, the dolphins had full bellies and were ready to play, so Captain Gale knew how to entice the dolphins into leaping in our wake and chasing our boat. We got several photos/videos of dolphins up close leaping and diving within feet of the back of our boat! The beach where Captain Gale took us to explore and look for seashells was breathtakingly beautiful- not populated except for one or two other boats of beachcombers. Our group had a great time and would highly recommend Captain Gale and Good Time Charters.

Absolutely one of the best fishing trips ever! Three girls and the Capt. He helped when help was needed and made us feel like we knew what we were doing! Sheepshead, black and red drum, and sea trout. Would go again in a New York minute

We had a wonderful experience with Capt Joe and Christina, cruised the back bay learning about the wildlife, estuary and history of an area we have spent months in for decades. There were five of us ages 8-64 and all of us loved the experience. Christina made arrangements to receive a smooth puffer fish from a fishing boat near by which provided all of us an interesting and exciting opportunity. We will make this an annual adventure, I would highly recommend it.
