Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences
We had a great time with Captain Phil. He and his mate, Tim, had to change the offshore sighing plan due to weather, but put us on the fish right away back in the mangroves. Had a lot of action every spot we tried. Great for experienced anglers, and inexperienced. Our young sons had a blast and caught some great fish.
Clay E. with Phil H. of Naples, Florida
Party of 3, we had a great time with Brandon, very knowledgeable of the area and the surrounding wildlife, would do it again.
Michael W. with Brandon S. of Naples, Florida
Captain Phil and his first mate Tim were fantastic. I will definitely refer them to others and be back again to go further offshore. We had bad weather but still had a great time.
Dan F. with Phil H. of Naples, Florida
Thought we would catch more and bigger fish disappointed
Mark W. with Brian A. of Naples, Florida
Brian was great! We plan on calling him again for our next trip in Naples.
Jesse E. with Brian A. of Naples, Florida
Captain Brandon was great! We took this trip with our 2 kids and he was awesome with them as well. He was very knowledgeable about the area and knew where the fish were biting. We all caught at least one fish (Our WI technique was not up to par with these FL fish!) Brandon decided to keep a few smaller ones and use as bait for a shark to see if we could catch one and threw the line out. We all had fun struggling to bring fish in, when the shark line started zipping and he had my husband take the pole! After about 20 min they got it in the boat! My kids were ecstatic! So despite not catching a ton of fish, we caught a shark and that was pretty awesome!! He even took the time at the dock to show the kids the crazy big fish in the marina and how they go nuts for anything in the water. Highly recommend Captain Brandon!
Louis W. with Brandon S. of Naples, Florida
Captain Phil and his mate Tim were great! They were fun to fish with, super knowledgeable about fishing in the area and they put us on the big fish!
Hank H. with Phil H. of Naples, Florida
Had a wonderful time with Captain. Caught tons of fish, plenty to take home as well. Great company too
Bryan L. with Stanley B. of Naples, Florida
Great trip and lots of action catching fish! Great music and Captain Phil was an awesome guy!
