Verified Review Fishing

Captain Wade was the absolute best! He came fully prepared with the best rods and plenty of bait to last the entire day. His expertise is second to none, a true professional. On top of that, he put us on fish all day long.

Wade was awesome. We caught fish on the first cast, literally. It took about 30 seconds. I took my kids and my son-in-law and we had a fantastic time. I highly recommend Wade and I will definitely be back!

I’ve chartered a lot of fishing services in the past and Afishionado ranks up at the top. In addition to having a well-maintained boat, all the fishing tackle and gear was ready-to-go and in excellent condition. There was also plenty of live bait on board to provide the best opportunity ...Read More
