Cpt Brad and Luke made this trip awesome. We caught everything we said we would catch. Even though the AJs were out of season, I had an incredible fight on a solid 42 inches. Damn good charter. Highly recommend. Salute cap! 🫡

What an awesome trip! Captain Brad is super knowledgeable and was a great help with not only the typical trivia questions but tips and tricks on techniques and your style of fishing. He was willing to work with me on getting a variety of fish but also taking the time to get a tarpon, which was well worth the wait. He was a great coach during the long battle and would've lost it if it weren't for him. The boat was great and would work well for a smaller group. Overall was a fantastic trip. Ill be sure to book Captain Brad again next time I'm in the area.

Fantastic. Highly recommend. Brad and his mate were highly flexible and especially knowledgeable, friendly and reasonably priced (should probably charge a little more for a half day).

Capt Brad and his on the spot first mate were absolutely the best. Took a friend from back home and they treated us like kings. Excellent job cleaning our fish.

This was the absolute best time I’ve ever had out on the water. Captain Brad and Luke were amazing to work with and we landed a ton of fish. Definitely worth every bit of it.

We had a great fishing trip in Clearwater Florida. Our captains (Brett and Luke) were very nice and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend Brett and Luke. They put us on some King Mackerel that fought like crazy. It was a lot of fun. Ask for Captain Brad.

A great trip! We had a great time with Captain Brad! Appreciated the one-on-one assistance with our son and their focus to make sure we were able to pull in a couple of good size fish. We have already shared his name with people we met while in Florida and will definitely try to book another trip the next time we are in the area!

Great trip! Water was a little choppy, but Capt Brad kept us in fish all 6 hours. Was an amazing experience! Luke and Capt Brad were quick to coach us and they were both awesome with my 11 year old son. Boat is top notch, very clean, and Capt Brad is quick to realize when it’s time to move to get you back into more fish. Caught many grunt, grouper, snapper, even a puffer fish and a shark. My first fish ever caught in the ocean was a Bonita while we were trolling and as I reeled him in, he got hit by a shark, so I ended up with a good sized fish head souvenir. Would give them more than 5 stars if all possible!

Booked a shark trip. Got some Grunt fish first as bait or to eat in tacos. Sharks bit, but bit hard and cut the lines. Oh well. It’s fishing. Great company and Captain Brad knew his stuff. Fun group. First mate mike was a blast too and willing to work and listen to orders. Would book again. Shark or no shark. Still had killer fish tacos tonight and cooked how they recommended.

Michael B.

Fishing

A day to remember is the best way to describe how this trip went. We caught fish until we burned out each spot. We caught Puffer fish, Red snapper, Black grouper, red grouper, catfish, black tip shark, spade fish, grunts and each caught a turtle. We could not have asked for a better crew for our trip and definitely would recommend from a family trip to a fun day with friends.

David B.

Fishing

We had a great time out with Captain Brad and Mikey. They were very professional and personable from the beginning of the trip to the end. They made sure we were successful in catching numerous fish of many different varieties. Both were extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of their trade. At the end of the day we caught between 20-30 fish we were able to keep. Once we got back to the dock, they cleaned and filleted the fish for us. Overall we had a great experience and really enjoyed the day. Highly recommend this fishing charter service.

Took a trip from 8 am to 12 pm in late April - what an amazing time! After catching some bait and some White Grunts (on just about every cast!), we hooked onto a giant Cobia. My wife and I are not experienced saltwater fishers but the crew walked us through everything we needed to do to land what would turn out to be the biggest fish either of us has ever caught! The process was unlike anything we had ever experienced before. It simply would not have been possible to land the fish without the help of Brad and Luke. Once we got back to shore, they cleaned and bagged the fish for us which ended up being a fantastic lunch. This was one of the most incredible experiences of my life and gave us a story we will be telling for years and years to come. Highly recommend! Other positives: - We never had to handle any bait! You wouldn’t have known we went fishing by how clean we were at the end - The boat is in great shape and we had a blast riding it out to the Gulf. They have comfortable bean bags that you can sit back and relax in while you enjoy the ride - We love fishing and go whenever we can back home, but this turned out being a very educational experience for both of us. We learned so much about saltwater fishing in just a short 4-hour trip
