It's still fishing but even on slow days most people bring home a few. Whatever you catch is yours to keep and when we get back to the dock, our deckhands offer free fish cleaning and we have fish bags and ice for you to take your fish home. Our techniques are either drift fishing or anchor fishing, both are very similar forms of bottom fish fishing. We are using cut bait such as squid, ballyhoo and sardines and all this is provided.

We've been doing this for over 40 years in the same location and we fish every single day on the same schedule. Give us a try and we'd love to have you out with us. Read More

    Max was a great guide. Made the trip fun and was friendly and knowledgable. We’d fish with Max again.

    Joel D. with Max A. of Panama City Beach, Florida

    We had a great day on the water with Richard who is a knowledgeable and experienced fly-fishing guide. I highly recommend spending a day or two with him!

    We were looking for a different kind of fishing trip and found it - we loved the surf fishing experience with Capt Max! He is a professional in every sense - he reached out to ensure we knew what to expect and where to meet. The beach location was easy to find & park and he had chairs & water waiting for us. Capt Max is very personable - loved hearing his story! The surf was very rough so we didn’t have high expectations, but Capt Max worked hard to find fish! We caught three nice pompano which he cleaned for us on the beach (they were delicious by the way!). Plus, we were treated to a beautiful sunset! What’s not to love?! No early morning, no bouncing around on a boat, spending time on the beach, great sunset, and a tasty dinner - perfect start to a beach vacay! Can’t wait to do it again and a big thank you to Capt Max!

    Steven K. with Max A. of Panama City Beach, Florida

    We had a great time on Captain Eric's Game On fishing boat! The quick trip was an excellent choice for the price, and the catch was plentiful. We had several first time deep sea fishers with us and they had a blast.

  • ★★★★★
    I've been out on charters many, many times mostly down the east coast but also in Cabo. I must say the trip out with captain Manny is one of the two best trips out I've ever experienced. Her out is on fish, Jordan (the mate) ensured the rods and basis were correct and ready to catch fish. This was just a half day trip but next trip I'm going full day. Wow, I highly recommend Captain Manny!!!!! The catch highlights have to include the 54" barracuda and a 7' shark (it took two of us tag teaming and over 30 minutes to bring the shark alongside the boat for measurement.

    Steve H. with Manny S. of Miami Beach, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    Great fishing. Captain Paul delivered and put us on plenty of Mahi-Mahi. 5 star experience.

    Gary A. with Paul J. of Islamorada, Florida

    Some times you are fortunate to meet people that leave a deep impression an impregnation on you. Captain Mark is one of these rare persons. I was fortunate to go fishing with him today and we had a blast. He is so kind, so full of knowledge, that I do recommend going fishing with him. His repeated actions around the wounded warrior project are a tribute to his care about his peers and good people in general.

    Had an absolute blast with Captain Chris! He was so nice and his passion and love for fishing made my bachelorette trip worthwhile! Our crew got to catch some great mackerel, yellowtail snapper and mutton snapper, plus more! Being able to celebrate my love for fishing and send off in the Keys with my gfs and Chris was the best! He got me on a huge tarpon hook up that I’ll absolutely never forget. Highly highly recommend this trip and we’ll certainly be back!!!
