    Captain J was exceptional! He was on time, he knew the best fishing spots and he cast out for my wife the entire time. He took us on a tour of places to visit on the water. We appreciated every thing about this charter thanks to Captain J. Good Job!

    Jonathan sold his boat and cancelled our trip the afternoon before we were supposed to go, but he found a replacement, Capt. AJ, who did a great job. I would fish with Capt. AJ again.

    The trip was amazing! We all had a wonderful time, & the captain & mate were very helpful. They also answered all of our questions throughout the day. Even my son who was seasick the whole time said he was glad he went.

    Captain Henry was great with our novice kids ages 16, 11 and 8, and they all had a blast. He was patient, informative, helpful and accommodated my son when he started getting nauseous. If a spot wasn’t working, he would move to another location. The 30’ Triton easily accommodated five passengers. Thank you for taking us out!

    Captain Emilio and his first mate(I apologize for not remembering your name), were wonderful. They visited with us before departure. We were at the end of Red Snapper season, but hey, we got our limit. Plus mackerel and Bonita. Captain Emilio did an excellent job getting us to the perfect location. I will say, taking the grandchildren (9& 4 years of age), the first mate did an outstanding job teaching the curious 9/year old. She learned a lot, as did I. I’m so glad we held off deep sea fishing until we were at South Padre(the other option was in Corpus), nope this was my favorite. I would tell anyone to make an 8-hr trip, and then scale back if needed. We had our quota of Red Snapper and continued to troll for the next hour or so. I would definitely recommend Captain Emilio !!!

    I loved the trip. Fish did not cooperate. Thank you

    We had a great day time. Captain Ron was very patient with my boys, who were not very experienced. He works extremely hard to put you on fish, and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

    Ron was great. He took us to trout and we limited. Then we caught flounder and reds. We will book him again.
