Capt. Scott and mate Shannon were the best. It was our first deep sea fishing trip, we had 3 children (12, 10 & 6) who thoroughly enjoyed the high speed ride out (almost like a rollercoaster) 😅😃. Bottom fishing, we caught vermillion snapper, Jack fish and Trigger fish. We also ...Read More got sharked twice and I never knew how hard it was to fight with a shark over the same snapper (I’m sure you know Who won) but was quite the experience to see a 6ft. shark up close as he swiped our catch. Even though the kids didn’t last the whole time, they really enjoyed their time. Thanks Capt. Scott and Shannon.

We had a great day fishing and his play list made the ride out enjoyable. We told Captain Scott we wanted Mahi Mahi and he put us on the fish quickly landing 3 (including a 20 pound bull) and missing on a couple of others. After we had ...Read More our fill trolling, we switched to bottom fishing which was pretty exciting and we brought up a variety of fish. The 2o pound red snapper had to be returned but Captain Scott cleaned a load of lane and vermillion snapper that we brought on the boat. Family time on the water…. no better way to spend that stimulus check!

Captain Scott did an amazing job. We came down to Daytona Beach for the last week of 2021 to just take in the beaches and do some fishing. Captain Scott did a great job in making sure we caught fish.

Let me start off by saying the seas were a little bit gamey that day!( 3-4ft) Scott’s wonderful boat was doing an amazing job with the waves being that big. We did some trolling that day unfortunately we were only able to get one mahi-mahi but it was pretty damn ...Read More good size! We than spent most of the day bottom fishing and let me tell you, it was great! Plenty of fish was brought home ! Thank you captain Scott!
