Well TW, we really feel honored getting a great review like that from another Charter Captain. We had to put on some miles to find the fish, but when we did, you guys managed to hook em up and bring em in-especially Mario The Mutton Man!
We look forward to seeing you guys down fishing with us again during Dolphin season.

We were really happy to see Joe back fishing with us and glad you were able to join him. It was a tough day of fishing, but we managed to stick with it and catch some nice tuna and yellowtail. We look forward to your coming back to fish with us again and we'll get you that Sailfish the next time!

“Doesn't Get any Better then Drop Back Chaters”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Title says it all. Cpt Jon & Cpt JR was absolutely amazing especially given everything surrounding our trip. We were originally scheduled to take another boat, but thank goodness we ended up with Drop Back Charters

I, surprised my husband for his birthday with this charter and had four of his college frat buddies joining the trip. They made sure the beer was on ice and fish were too. All of the boys are avid fishermen, and they took the time to teach new techniques as we were fishing.

Jon Reynolds First rate captain and mate for sure! The guys even nicked named him "Captain Cast" when you book a charter, you'll see why!

Nicole & the boys

PS We all will be back for another trip

Thanks for the great photos and for the nice review. It was a pleasure having you on board and we couldn't have picked a nicer day -the sun was bright, the seas were calm and the Sailfish were jumping! Hope you make it back to the Keys again!

“Absolutely the BEST Captain and crew in the Keys!”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

What a way to finish 2012 (12/30/12) !! Not a harder working crew anywhere.... Captain Jon Reynolds and Ryan are top rate and I would highly recommend to anyone looking to fish with the best anywhere. The Boat is perfectly set up to slay the fish and extremely comfortable for cruising in any conditions. We will be back early in 2013 for Trophy Sails. Thanks gentlemen for a great trip w many many memories! Happy New Year.

It's amazing how some people can go out in lousy conditions-windy, cold, and rough seas- and manage to enjoy their trip regardless!! You guys were awesome and a real pleasure to have on board. We look forward to having you join us again with,hopefully, better conditions and help you catch that awesome Sailfish!
