“Great Day of Fishing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014 via mobile

We had a fabulous day of fishing with Florida's Finest Fishing, Capt. Bubby Hail. Our fishing trip was with Capt. Harris. Very knowledgeable young man with excellent fishing skills. We caught fish non stop. Capt Harris kept everything running smoothly as we worked him non stop. At the end of our trip our fish were filleted and given to us on ice. We drove immediately to Cocomos and had it cooked three ways; grilled, blackened and fried. It was the best meal we had while on Marco Island. And, we had some great meals.
Thank you to Capt. Bubby and Capt Harris for a memorable day and a fantastic dinner.

“Nobody better than Captain Bubby!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2014

If you're going to visit Marco Island, a day out on the water fishing is a must. The ONLY name you need to know is Captain Bubby. Ask around and you will hear nothing but great things. Get on the boat and you would think you knew Bubby your whole life. He's a great guy and a great fisherman. He will make sure you have tight lines and have a great day on the water. I would also say whether you are a serious seasoned fisherman, or someone just looking to soak up the sun and catch some fish, Captain Bubby can deliver on all accounts.

“Fantastic family fishing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

My family and I went out on a half day offshore charter. Capt Bubby is top notch. He has a great personality and is very outgoing. He took us to a few different spots around 10 miles out. Each spot we went to the fish were biting. We caught so many fish we started throwing them back. We kept 12 snapper and 4 mackeral. When we got back Capt Bubby filet the fish in short order. Really was an outstanding time. He was very helpful to the group who weren't experienced fishers. I will charter with Bubby next time I'm in Marco Island. Thanks for the great time!

“So fun and a very successful trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014

Bubby is so awesome. I was in Florida on vacation with three other people and we had such a blast. He is hilarious, very relatable, and just a great guy to be around! You can really tell he values his customers and that he is incredibly knowledgable about the sport of fishing and the types of fish. He cleaned our fish and we had a GREAT dinner that night. We are definitely going back every year, at least!

“Capt. Bubby will fish you until you drop!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2013

We went grouper fishing with Capt Bubby. It was very rough - as Bubby said, "It's rockin' and Rollin'". So, we couldn't go out to the big fish - we only went out 9-1/2 miles. Between the four of us, we caught over 100 grouper, including snapper, grunts, and sharks. Unfortunately only three of the grouper were legal - but did they ever taste good. Capt Bubby was all over the boat assisting us; locating to new, better locations; constantly busy, worrying about us; and keeping us busy. An excellent day of fishing and catching, with all thanks to Capt Bubby Hail.
