    Capt. Rick and Hope were the best we’ve had a chance to fish with! Great boat, everything you need is offered, good fishing, and a lot of fun. We will be fishing with them again soon and I highly recommend if you are traveling with the whole family, friends, or kids. They have it covered.

    Incredible experience, captain Bryan knows how to catch fish and knows where the local giants are hiding. We cought a massive 300lb sand shark and several other species, captain was generious in sharing his knowlegde and experience with us and his loyal co-captain Tilly (chihuahua) made us feel welcome and made sure we had fun. I'd reccomend cap Bryan to anyone loking to CATCH fish in Miami waters!

    Carol, Doug, and I enjoyed our near-shore 6-hour fishing trip with Captain Joel and Ana Banana charters in Marathon. We went out past Sombrero Reef and fished for yellow tailed snapper and caught many. We targeted grouper on the bottom as well. Next we fished near the seven mile bridge for permit and yellow jacks. Last we fished a sunken ship for snappers and groupers. Captain Joel knows his business and we caught many fish including yellow tailed snapper, mangrove snapper, and schoolmaster snapper. With Captain Joel, your pole will constantly bend with great eating fish.

    Doug, my best friend, and I had a great fishing experience with Captain Brad. Captain Brad and First Mate Jameson are very professional and enjoyable to fish with. The had rigs and bait ready when we arrived. The Southpaw was clean and ready to go. We left on time and had a fantastic "Dawn to Dusk" trip. We started with a quick stop at a buoy to catch some live bait, which was fun. Next we travelled to the first trolling spot. At 8:45 we had a bite on the left outrigger. 45 minutes, and many jumps and runs, later, we had a beautiful blue marlin beside the boat. We have little deep sea fishing experience. The fish was caught on 30 pound test line. Captain Brad and First Mate Jameson did an amazing job ensuring we caught and released the fish. We then continued trolling and around 11 Captain Brad found Mahi Mahi. We made several circles by the weed line they were under and caught 15. We continued trolling and along the way we boated a barracuda and a king mackerel. We did a deep drop and caught some rose fish. We fished a wreck and Doug had something big on the line but could never get it off the bottom. We trolled some more until it was time to return to port. Captain Brad worked all day long. He never lost focus. He truly loves to do what he does. Jameson was on point all day as well. He is relatively new as a first mate and has learned quickly and always was focused and energetic. Captain Brad has spent a lifetime doing what he does and is still passionate about giving people a great time on the water. He designed his vessel to be a great deep sea fishing vessel, and the Southpaw is. I will recommend Captain Brad to anyone. Fishing is a game of chance. All you can ask for is a captain who is knowledgeable and passionate, a great vessel, and a competent first mate. We had that experience. Thank you Captain Brad.

    Fantastic trip overall! Captain Brian was so welcoming and fun, we caught huge fish and had a blast! Even the 5 year old with us loved it, he had plenty of water for us and a great clean bathroom on the boat. He made sure we had fun and we loved it. Will definitely be booking again when possible! Highly recommend.

    We had a great time on the boat with Zach and Josh. Had great communication, caught lots of fish, Josh went above and beyond for all of the ladies to be taken care of with our fishing bait and catch. I will be doing this again. Highly recommend! Having Aunt Trish on board was an extra bonus😊
