I wanted to put together something special for my dad’s birthday. I figured all the guys in the family could go fishing together. All of us have some fishing experience and wanted an alternate to the run of the mill deep sea trip. I came across Recess Sport Fishing/Captain Frank ...Read More and found out he had an all day shark and tarpon trip. None of us had done that before, so I booked it. First of all, Captain Frank was polite, professional and accommodating from the get go. On the day of the trip, we met at the marina. He was early and the boat was ready. (And what a boat!) we met his mate, Anthony and we started out chasing pogies down the beach. As soon as we had bait we made our way to the nearest shrimp boats and tailed them while sight casting for sharks. All of us hooked up almost immediately and that kept going most of the day. We saw plenty of dolphins, sea turtles, sharks and other fish too. While we were fishing, Frank and Anthony were both excellent instructors and coaches and definitely kept us on the fish. I would recommend this trip to anyone who loves a sporty day on the water. I will 100% charter with Frank again so book him before I beat you to it!
My family and I had an awesome time! We got a couple kingfish and a barracuda. Such a fun experience
To say I had a great time is an understatement! Captain Frank was awesome, he found the bait and shortly after it was fish on. Boat and equipment were very nice, I would definitely recommend fishing with Captain Frank.
