The weather was rough but we really wanted to go. Captain Chris said that if we were willing he'd give it a go. He and first mate Taylor put us on fish and filled the cooler and really made the whole trip a very special day for my family and took great care of us. We would recommend these two anytime. …
Capt. Chris, and Jack were above and beyond professionals! Can’t wait to join them for another adventure.
Had a great day with Captain Chris and Jack on the Jawbreaker. Caught many fish at many spots today.
Had a great day fishing! Thanks to Chris and Jack for the local dining recommendations! Jack, the margaritas were awesome!
Had a great time and was able to catch a king and Spanish mackerel along with a few snapper.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Five star all around!! I originally booked a 6 hour tour- but unfortunately due to weather we had to turn in and we weren’t able to go out as far as originally planned. I was VERY impressed that Captain Will and first mate Chris were experienced and honest enough to navigate us to the best fishing spots to target the specific species I wanted (hog fish) AND brought us back right in time to dodge the storm. Other companies might have told us the storm wouldn’t have been too bad so they could keep the 6 hour payment rather than refunding me for the other two hours. Our safety was made a priority and I am truly grateful. Will and Chris were super tentative and helpful. They both work great together and really hustled to make sure we hit multiple spots even with limited time. I live on Clearwater Beach with dozens and dozens of different fishing charter companies to choose from. Gulfport is about a 45 minute drive from my home- but, I will certainly be making the trip back to Gulfport to do another. Despite the dense fishing charter population right in my backyard. Highly recommend. These guys are the real deal and know what they’re doing! …
My two kids have fished a lot in their lives, but had never been deep sea fishing. Captain Chris and make John we’re awesome, I could not have asked for a better Duo for their first experience.. I would recommend them to anyone weather they are a seasoned fisherman or first timers …
