I had a great time and would go again if I were in town. The skipper was kind, and the boat was clean and comfy.



Today's journey with Captain Bishop was fantastic!! We had beautiful weather and caught a lot of fish!

The most fish I've ever caught in a four-hour period was insane, and Capt Robert has the ideal fishing hole.

We had a fantastic time!! Captain Rob found us a good spot, and we were pulling in fish nonstop after that. Captain Rob is fantastic and will go out of his way to find you the fish!

We decided on the 6 hour charter and the four of us had the time of our lives! Captain Robert and his first meet Cole were extremely helpful with catching fish and putting them in the boat! My son and his buddy, and my grandson and I had a fantastic time! We would definitely do it again with the same captain. Highly recommended!

Started off catching some bait which took a little time, but after one throw of the net we had enough bait to get going. As we were heading out to the King grounds the weather picked up and Captain Robert informed me we wouldn’t be able to make it out due to the 6’ waves. He left it up to me weather or not we went in and cancel the trip or go to a closer spot to give it a try. We elected to head out to the closer spot to try it. Unfortunately we didn’t catch anything there but in the mean time the seas laid down enough for us to go to where the fish were. A minute after the first bait was in the water we were on with a keeper cobia, shortly after that we had our first king in the boat. After a few short hours of catching and a few that the sharks wanted more than we did we called an end to the fun due to building waves. This was an awesome trip and I wouldn’t hesitate to take it again. Captain Robert and his mate make a great team and will put you on the fish.

My wife, daughter and grandson enjoyed our first Atlantic fish charter with Captain Robert. We each took turns reeling in some fighting King Mackerel! We got 6 of them!! We moved on to another area where my daughter Shary got a Cobia. ( too small and was released), but not before teasing the larger one that followed! That one I got the pleasure of realing in!! Nice fight and did he take out some line when he saw the boat!! We finally brought him in close enough when Captain Robert gaffed it and had a little struggle bringing in this fighter. When the fish hit the deck, his last fight was apparently a last shot to Captain Robert. The hook shot out and sadly went right through his shoe and into his toe! We got the fish in the holding area. Captain Robert with this hook in shoe/toe almost continues when more Cobia were spotted around the boat. The 4 of us called it a day on behalf of Captain Roberts foot! An awesome day and many thanks to Captain Robert!

My son and I had such and awesome time with Captain Robbie! He made sure we understood what to expect for the day on the front end and lived up to every bit of it. We enjoyed the ride out to sea and learned a lot as Captain Robbie talked about the fishing and how they track the optimal places to fish. We caught a lot of fish, while as smaller amount were keepers. Captain Robbie cleaned our catch and gave some tips on ways to cook them. We enjoyed a very nice meal that evening with our fish catch as an abundant entree! Thanks to Captain Robbie for the wonderful day!
