I am a 13 year old kid from outside of Phillidelphia that does not get to experience catching 50 pound fish, and when I went out with captain Fred on an awesome boat, and awesome scenery. Captain Fred got a 50 pound RedFish on the end of my line, and this was a normal day for the fishing guy. He gets his customers redfish everyday. Sometimes even 20 redfish! Go book your trip now it will be worth it! www.fishigguy.com

My sister fishes with Captain Fred regularly so planned a girls trip after a family wedding. "Frenchy" is great with experienced anglers and super patient with those who need a little more help with technique. We caught a smorgasbord and had a few that got away, but the highlight was chasing manta rays to see if cobia were around. Catching a nice one was icing on the cake. Thanks for a great day Frenchy!

When Captain Fred couldn't get us a charter booked he referred us to Captain Mike Adkins. We had an awesome time! I caught tons of Red Snapper (too bad they were out of season) and almost never sat still my line was always running. Thank you for the wonderful referral and I hope to book a future charter. I will recommend you guys to all my fishing friends! E-mail Captain Mike at mikeadkins67@gmail.com. Thank you again Captain Fred you guys rock!

I have gone out with Fred many times in the past four years. I have my own boat in New Smyrna Beach... so I go out with him to catch fish AND to learn. Fred is different than a lot of guides in that there are no secrets, he is a great teacher. He knows where the fish are and takes pride in putting you on some big ones. I have brought my kids, and business associates and he has never let me down. Last week he put us on about 14 or 15 of the fattest Red Fish I have ever seen

We booked Fred for a full day's outing and the trip lived completely up to out expectations. We caught many species including sharks, red and lane snappers, goliath grouper, sea bass, triggerfish and flounder. Using live shrimp we were getting bites every cast and getting a fish on deck on every other one. My 15-yr old son also had the experience of hooking and playing an estimated 200 to 300 lb goliath grouper (jewfish). However, on 40 lb test, this one was never likely to be landed. Fred uses methods and rigs that will guarantee you to get more bites than those used by most anglers. Once he shares his knowledge with you, it makes complete sense.
