Capt. Rob made our inshore fishing trip spectacular! We left the dock @ 7AM and had lines in the water in 15-20 minutes. We had 4 people fishing on a 4 hour trip and we all caught fish early and often. We were a challenging group of new anglers and Rob handled our frequent needs calmly and professionally. He also did a nice job of explaining the process of catching redfish and flounder. He put us in a number of good spots and helped us all have success. When the trip ended, we had a couple of really nice meals from our catch.

Rob was excellent. He made the entire trip effortless, he was courteous to the other boaters while still getting us on the fish as fast as possible. Price was much better then most other charters in town and Rob truly is a professional at chartering his boat. We plan on making this an annual event. The Dailey Family

We went out with Captain Rob in May 2013 for an outstanding day of fishing on the intracoastal. He got us into a mess of redfish and black drum, followed by a few nice flounder and a sea trout. Caught enough keepers for a couple good dinners and extra to take home at the end of our vacation. We scheduled with Rob for two more dates this past May, and had similarly fantastic days on the water. Caught quite a few redfish, flounder, and a beauty black drum; saw several new bird species (roseate spoonbills are so cool!); had a few pods of manatees cruise right be the boat (!!); and had just a great time in general. Rob is extremely knowledgeable of the intracoastal and really knows how to find the fish. He's genuine, very friendly and attentive to his guests, super well-prepared, and keeps his boat, well, shipshape. I highly recommend Rob to experienced anglers and complete novices alike, and I really hope to have a chance to go out with him again.

Rob is an awesome guide. We started a bit slow but then got into some big redfish. He knows exactly where to go. Boat is immaculate and well set up. Will definitely come back next year.

Rob/Coastal Fishing Charters was recommended to me by a St. Augustine fisherman who said Rob is "the man." What a great recommendation - I've been back 4 times now - my parents have a place near St Augustine and I take my Dad every time we visit. Rob has always managed to get us on the fish. He also has beautiful clean boat, top notch equipment, and a seemingly endless supply of live bait. I've fished with 1 or 2 other guys on the boat and we had no issues. Rob knows every creek, hole, and where to fish based on season, tide, wind... It's a first class operation and worth every penny. On top of that, he's a nice, intelligent guy, who is a plethora of information about the wildlife in the area. I can't wait for my kids to get big enough to come along. See ya in 2 months when we're back visiting Rob.
