I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to fish with CPT Phil. The man knows his fish like no other. We put more fish in the boat than I’ve caught before. He went above and beyond to ensure us a successful day when many of the locals said it
...Read More was going to be tough to catch them on this particular day due to the weather and rough conditions on the water. I was able to land my first red and snook of my life. To say it was a great day of fishing was a huge understatement. CPT Phil is not just a 5 star Captain but a 5 star man as well. I will highly recommend him for anyone.
Awesome fishing. We had fish on in 3 seconds and caught over 60 snook and snapper in the first 3 hours. 7 nice snappers for hook and cook and they were amazing. Highly recommend and Phil was awesome.
Captain Phil knows how to find the fish and will flat put you on them. If the bite slows, he’s on to the next place to get the action fast and furious again. Also a great guy to spend the day with. Happy to say there wasn’t
...Read More a dull moment in the two days we fished with him.
