“One big shark!!!!”
Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

Our group of 6 went on an all day fishing trip on the Discretion with Mike and Justin. We got off to a slow start but then saw a big hammerhead shark. Justin got the bait in the right place, got the hookup and it was game on!!! We landed a 9 ft 3" hammerhead after a lengthy battle. We also caught a dandy wahoo, a blackfin tuna and several Bonita. We had a great day and Mike & Justin work hard to make it enjoyable.

We will look them up next time.

“Night Shark fishing Trip Key West Feb 2013”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Captain Mike and his son Justin took us out for an evening shark fishing trip out of Key West in February 2013. They were very professional and got us right on the fish. We were able to land two Carribean reef sharks, two black tip reef sharks and a huge lemon shark which was 7ft long and 200 lbs! They are great guys to fish with, very personable with great stories and always were checking to make sure we were comfortable and having a good time. I would recommend them to anyone visiting KW.

“Best day in Key West fishing with Captain Mike”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

My first time deep sea fishing and we could not have chosen a better captain than Mike or first mate Justin. They made me feel comfortable and safe, and had great stories to tell. The feeling of catching that first fish was amazing. I will fish with them again some day.

“Shark Fishing at Night”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

Three years ago while visiting Key West we went shark fishing at night on the Discreation with CAPT Mike. It was great, two sharks were caught. This year January 2013 returning to Key West with friends we discussed doing it again. Sure enough we walked down the pier and the Discretion was docked. We booked the trip right then. The weather was calling for winds and we were concerned and contemplated rescheduling. CAPT Mike said we will be fine and we were fine, better than fine it was perfect. We caught 6 Sharks. There was only 4 of us on the trip. Darryl and Bob both caught two each and both Deb and I caught one each. The first mate Justin was great he didnt stop. Although Key West has lots of great memorable stories to tell, it was the highlight of our trip again. When I show people the video that CAPT Mike took of me pulling in my 7 foot shark and Justin bringing it onboard for a photo, they are amazed. Both CAPT Mike and Justin are great guys, we had a blast. See you next time we are in Key West!

Thanks again, Tracey

“"Best fishing experience"”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Deep sea fishing on "Discretion" was unbelievable! Mike is a great captain and Justin is the best mate you could ask for. We caught 5 dolphin, 5 bonita tuna, 7 black fin tuna, and 1 wahoo. They know where the hot spots are and can manage a lot of lines. Justin filleted the fish perfectly and in no time. Mike and Justin even wanted to stay out longer and we agreed for a great price. "Discretion" is the way to go.
