Captain Conan and Alyssa were excellent. Here is a picture of me, Captain Conan and the giant Jack we caught (we used a blackfin tuna we caught earlier in the charter). He is clearly an experienced captain with an ability to put clients on fish.

BEST EXPERIENCE & EATS We booked our offshore fishing charter last-minute (the day before we left), it ended up being the best part of our trip. We can’t wait to come back! Captain Conan contacted us the evening prior to discuss a game plan and let us know exactly what we needed for preparation. Being our first offshore fishing adventure and having two kids, this was much appreciated. The waters were predicted to be somewhat rough with a wind presence. Conan emphasized maintaining safety as his priority despite the conditions. I can say we all felt safe for the duration of our trip. Capt. Conan and his First Mate, Alyssa, met us at the docks and helped the kids onto the boat. ‘Just One More’ was ready to go: cooler was filled with ice for our food/ drinks; bluetooth hookup to speakers for necessary offshore soundtracks; bean bags available on deck for kids to chill in. As we headed offshore, Alyssa pointed out the dolphins, sea turtles and jelly fish we saw along the way. Our offshore targets were dynamic, ranging from sailfish to permit; barracudas to snapper and barjack. We were able to hook many large fish, including barracuda (catch & release) plus a yellow barjack and many yellowtail snapper, which we were able to keep for eating. Conan processed our catch upon return to the dock, and also recommended a local restaurant to prepare our fish/ his go-to menu selections, which ended up being our best meal of the trip. The ‘Just One More’ is a safe, clean, comfortable and spacious boat. Captain Conan proved to be just as passionate as he is knowledgeable when it comes to offshore fishing. Rather than simply looking to make a dollar, he cares to really create an experience for his customers. Conan was able appeal to both the kids and the provide thrill for the adults on our trip.

I wish I could give Captain Mark more than 5 stars! My two sons and I caught a ton of fish -- mackerel, snapper, trout, bluefish and more. Captain Mark knew the area, took us right where we needed to be and made sure we were set up for success. We wanted enough for a dinner, and we needed to buy a cooler to bring it all home. Captain Mark is a class act, we'll definately be back again, and will refer to friends who visit the Keys.

Eric was concerned about us going out because of high winds but we were here for a special occasion so his partner Dylan persevered and took us out in a bigger boat. The conditions were indeed challenging but Dylan worked extremely hard to see that we had a good time. His love of the area and the nature around was obvious and we benefited from it. My wife caught fish for our lunch and a really nice grouper that we were unable to harvest due to seasonal restrictions. We had a lot of fish on and boated, had a great chat, saw beautiful nature and even had two birds, an osprey and cormorant, go after our baits. It was a wonderful adventure. We’re going out with Eric or his crew again tomorrow. It was an awesome morning! Highly recommend them.

We had a great time. Through windy conditions we were still put on fish and enjoy the overall experience. We will be back.

Captain Mike is the Bomb! With over 30 years of experience Captain Mike, who usually likes to bait fish around Islamorada, was more than willing to take us flyfishing, and even had an extra reel when ours got jammed. He showed us around some beautiful tarpon and permit flats and we got tons of good shots at giant tarpon and permit. Capt. Mike clearly does it all, and his experience is hard to rival down here in the keys.
