“Hands down the best charter”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Capt George your the best....We had a great trip with Rodeo Charters,
There are so many charters to chose from, it's hard to make a decision.
Great day of fising on the shallow reefs. We were looking for a good catch/meal and we ended up with much more. My Nephew caught a 25lb 4 foot Barracuda after a 20 minute battle, a experience we will never forget.

Thanks Capt George

“Wahoo!!! Amberjack, King Mackerel, Blackfin Tuna, Yellowfin Snapper...all in a day's work!!”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Captain George, Sr. and his mate were excellent. Fishing with these guys is definitely a lively day! We went after Wahoo in the morning, and scored, and picked up some tuna along the way. We then turned our sights to Amberjack, scored again. We fished on the reef for awhile to let our arms rest and to catch snapper and bait fish. We then parlayed the bait fish into a King Mackerel to give us a big tri-fecta of fish! The mate did excellent work, and the Captain made sure there was never a dull moment.

I go fishing every year in the gulf, and this is by far the most fun I have ever had. Plus, the Captain gives you a great recipe for Tuna sushi, and even prepares some for you after the fish are cleaned.

Sometimes we are lucky to catch a variety of fish when we are targeting a certain species. It does make it very fun catching differen't thruoughout the day. You guys did a nice job getting them in the boat. Have a great summer and we'll see you again. Thanks,
Capt. George

“Great, Fun, Offshore Fishing February 25, 2013”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

Capt. George and his crew worked their butts off to provide us with a great 3/4 day on the water. One of the best days fishing i've ever had! We caught a bonito, 7 blackfin tuna, 1 mahi mahi and missed another large mahi and a big wahoo, which was just as exciting as the fish we landed. Capt George was super responsive during the booking process and very friendly while out on the water as well as very knowledgeable of fishing and never stopped trying to put the fish in the boat. And just as important, I've never seen a mate work as hard as his! The final and perhaps best highlight of the day was eating our blackfin tuna sashimi style on the dock when we returned. Capt George marinated the fish in his homemade special oyster sushi sauce--absolutely delicious! The tuna sashimi melted in our mouth. We will definitely fish with Capt George the next time we're in Key Largo!

You folks are very kind writing us this review. Although the fishing was exciting and fun, we always love eating some fresh sashimi on the dock with our secret tuna sauce. GOTTA love it.
Thanks again,

“Fishing not floating!”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Booked a full day fishing trip with Captain George. Hands down, the best decision we made during our stay in the Florida Keys! Having never visited the Keys, I had lots of questions and George always answered his phone and always answered my questions without all the sales hype I got from other groups. He and his crew delivered by taking us fishing without any excuses. When the fish weren't biting in one area we moved to a better area. When the lures weren't working we tried live bait. All in all a great day fishing. I even had one monster jump four feet out of the water! Book with Captain George and you will not be disappointed.

If you are happy, we are happy. Nothing worse then being out on the water and being stuck with an unhappy person. We love what we do and really enjoy people. Capt. George's secret sushi sauce is a great way to finish off the day with fish so fresh, um good! Thank you and we hope to fish with you again.

“Great Time”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

Capt. Tony was a great guide. We are not avid fisherman so he did a great job of keeping our lines baited and kept our assortment of fish in the live well. We caught 25 keepers and took the fish George fileted for us to The Galley where they cooked it up for a great taste and price! We will definately go out with Capt. George again!!!!!
