Ron, made light of some difficult fishing conditions to ensure that i went home with a huge smile on my face after a really decent haul of a great variety of fish. He was flexible, charming and a delight to spend a day with - a day i shall treasure for some time to come.
Marcus B. with Ron S. of Jacksonville, Florida
Outstanding fishing trip and adventure with Captain Bill. Celebrating our 21st wedding anniversary, I decided to book a deep-sea fishing trip while visiting our daughter in Jacksonville Florida. Captain Bill's sense of humor, people skills, combined with his professional knowledge and experience as a Captain and fishing guide made this trip/experience a great success and one we will always cherish. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a down-to-earth Captain that is fun an a expert in his craft.
Larry J. with Bill P. of Jacksonville, Florida
Great time and frank is a nice guy and good Captain. Will definitely be going again soon!!
Mike V. with Frank C. of Jacksonville, Florida
It was a great fishing trip.
Captain Don is truly a 5 star fishing guide. He's a better guy. I've been fishing for over 50 years, and as I hoped, Captain Don showed me several ticks and trips I'd never seen. No matter your experience level, he has something to help. We had a great day on the water, and had a great conversation. Darn fish just kept bugging us though.
Dan D. with Don T. of Jacksonville, Florida
We had a great time with captain frank. Due to the storms that rolled in weeks prior to our trip and a nor' easter, we had to make due with the areas we had available to fish. The booking process was very easy and we enjoyed our time on the water.
Magan J. with Frank C. of Jacksonville, Florida
Our 6-hour in-shore fishing trip with Captain Billy was such a great time! He's definitely done his fair share of charters and we were lucky enough to catch quite a few fish. He followed all sizing restrictions and made sure we were on fish at every spot we went to. After, he showed us the proper way to clean fish. We will most definitely do another charter with him in the future.
