“Best Fishing Trip Ever!”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

I've been on several fishing charters but never caught as many fish as we did on our trip with A & B Charters. Captain Jim and his first mate attended to each of us. We didn't have to bait a hook, take a fish off the line, or worry if we got a line tangled. They were there immediately to help us out. Everything was provided except snacks and drinks which I took along. I was told those were the only things I needed to bring when I booked the trip. My husband and I took our four teenaged grandchildren on this trip. Our granddaughter caught a 35 lb. grouper!!!! Thankfully, Captain Jim was there to help her land that fish - for a terrific photo-op! We caught more than 75 fish and the captain cleaned 50 or more for us to take home. We took half to a nearby restaurant where they fixed them for our dinner. Each of our grandchildren enjoyed the day and hope for a repeat experience! We couldn't have asked for a better way to spend a cool Florida day! Thanks, A & B!

“"Catchin"...NOT fishin'”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Boy, did we catch fish! We live on the Great Lakes and charter for Salmon & Trout regularly. On Lake Michigan we call it "fishing" but here...with A&B charters....we call it catching. Grouper and Snapper, one after another....and when the strikes slowed....Capt. Jim was on the go to another one of his hot spots. We even "caught " a pelican hitchhiker on the way back in to dock. I can't praise the skill and experience of this crew enough. Both Captain Jim and his First Mate Juan had us well in hand and took care to make our fishing lively and fun. Why, the ride on the A&B alone was worth the fee, let alone all the fish we took home. This will be our Charter of choice always in Naples. Well done and THANKS......you guys ROCK.

“Excellent Day of Fishing”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

These guys are awesome. 11 of us went on an afternoon trip. Caught over 75 fish with 50 keepers. The crew was professional, friendly and very helpful. We had kids with us and they had a great time too. This is the third time that we have fished with A and B and each time has been great. Once docked, the captain filleted and bagged the fish for us and we cooked it all within 30 minutes. Well worth it!! We all look forward to next year's trip.
