My wife n I went with Captain Greg on a full day trip, we both wanted to fish but she also wanted to sight see n go to shell island. So we went fishing first caught 9 keepers pretty quick then it slowed down so he took my wife to shell island and dropped her off n we went back fishing. She walked around n found some big beautiful shells when she was done we moved again and started fishing again started catching a bunch my wife and I got tired of catching and was ready to go after 6 hours. Thanks Captain Greg we both had a great time.

Booked a half-day bay trip. Had 2 kids fishing and caught 25 fish trout, sea trout, and Whitting. Didn’t get to fish but 2 1/2 hrs due to rain but had a good trip. Hopefully, next year catch some triple tails! Would recommend Capt. Greg charter!

Super nice captain to fish with. He was very knowledgeable and we felt comfortable with him. Will definitely go out again with him. My son had never been deep sea fishing and he caught a good many. He is ready to go again!

Great experience for two adults and 4 teenagers. Captain Greg put us on Sea Trout, Shark and my son even fought a Stingray for about 20 mins before it broke the line. End of the trip we had 96 Sea Trout, 2 Croakers and a keeper Shark. First trip for 3 of the teens, we all had a blast!

We had originally planned for a 4 person 3/4 day off-shore trip, put two of us ended up not being able to make it. We canceled because $350 a person was just too rich for our our blood, but Captain Greg recommended the half day bay trip for $425 total and we decided to take him up on it. We asked if we could go out at 9:00 AM and captain Greg said that was fine. We ended up bring home about 50 white trout and whiting combined, and throwing back another 50 hard head catfish. It was an awesome time, and we can’t recommend Captain Greg and his charter enough. Guaranteed good time. Thanks Greg!
