“Great day fishing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014

I had a great day fishing with Capt. Tommy. It was my first trip fishing in the Keys so I carefully checked out the various charters and selected Dream Catcher. Capt. Tommy was a great guide and led me to several barracuda and permit. The boat was very clean and well maintained. I highly recommend Dream Catcher Charters and Capt. Tommy. Genn was also very helpful in setting up the charter. I'll be booking with Dream Catcher Charters again next year.

“Always an awesome experience!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

I always fish with Dream Catcher when in Key West. Fished this weekend with Captain Hugh. Tarpon were thin so my girlfriend an I decided to pull on some toothy critters. Captain Hugh worked his butt off to put us into fish. On a day where everybody else was getting skunked we got some BIG fish. My girlfriend got bragging rights with a 16# cuda out of just a few feet of water, while I had the time of my life doing battle with a 6ft+ lemon shark on light line. I am a very experienced angler and appreciate a captain that lets me enjoy the challenge of catching my own fish unassisted, but is patient and helpful with inexperienced anglers like my girlfriend. As always, I highly recommend this outfit. Awesome boats, equipment, and captains.

“Fishing done right”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

Captain Hugh took us on a 4 hr half day charter. He was very knowledgeable and accommodating to what we wanted to fish for and for how long. We tried for a tarpon first, but they just were not active so moved on to casting jigs for jacks and lady fish. He put us on the fish immediately.. Catching a fish 1 in every 5 casts or so. Many jacks and lady fish were caught. We even managed to get a bonnet head shark. All in all a great day of fishing and well worth it

“Excellent Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

My wife and I fished with Captain Hugh. We caught several species including a Snapper slam (4 different kinds of Snapper). My wife caught her first shark (Black Tip). Add a Tarpon that spit the hook and we had a great day. Captain Hugh is very accommodating and did an excellent job

“Fantastic trip, great captain”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

Had Captain Hugh, very personable, fun guy to fish with. I've fished with a lot of people, friends, guides, family, etc, and he's definately one of the best. Even better when you can catch a lot of fish and have a nice guy who isn't arrogant. Overall fantastic trip with a fantastic captain. Highly suggest this place and this guide! Ask for Hugh!
