We went 57 miles off the coast to target Amberjack and Grouper. We got into fish immediately and had steady action all day. Amberjack was the main focus for me and Melissa and Shade did everything they could to get us on the fish. Of course I hook the biggest ...Read More AJ of the day and the tax man comes and takes his share. Add another 20 minute fight and I pulled up a 6’ to 7’ shark. After that, a lot more sharks showed up so we moved 10 miles. We got on some good sized strawberry grouper and grunts. A large bait ball circled the boat and fish were jumping like the were being chased but we never saw by what. Overall my wife and I had an amazing trip. Captain Melissa and Shade have a nice boat with good equipment. They baited my wife’s hooks and helped her land her fish. They were very attentive to the needs of the customer. I have been on dozens of charters with some good and some really bad so I have a realistic expectation of what to expect. I would recommend this Charters for a quality experience.

We had an awesome time with Captain Melissa and First Mate Shade. They were very informative of how to be successful in reeling in the fish and certain techniques to use. They made it fun for our 5 year old twins, Addison and Ridge. They were also great about keeping ...Read More everyone safe while we were on the boat. We caught all kinds of fish and they know all of the hot spots. We were having to reel in as soon as we dropped our line in the water. They are laid back and fun to be around. They also have an awesome playlist to listen to as you’re heading to each spot 😉 10 out of 10, I highly recommend them for your next charter.

We had a great day fishing. I have been on a couple of different fishing charters this year; it was nice to have Captain Melissa give us a safety briefing before leaving the dock. The other charters I took gave no safety briefing at all. Captain Melissa and her first ...Read More mate were very polite, attentive and knowledgeable. We caught plenty of fish. I would definitely recommend them as an excellent fishing charter.

Highly recommend Captain Melissa. Took family for Father’s Day scalloping trip. Captain Melissa was very attentive, great help with the kids in the water. Great first mate and boat was clean, comfortable and got us there quick! Can’t wait to book again!
