Excellent trip with Captain Donnie! An experience every sportsman needs. Tails Up/Sea Cruiser will be my only go to when fishing out of Venice. Donnie is a true professional and will make sure you get on the fish no matter what it takes. His new Contender is a battle wagon and he and his crew are second to none.
We were catching doubles on the first cast!! ! Capt. Donnie and his first mate Jay are class dudes!!! They worked extremely hard to get us on some major tuna!!! We all had a blast and were exhausted at the end of the day reeling from reeling in tuna!!! Will definitely be back fishing with Capt. Donnie I’m the future, he’s what you want from a charter trip…open, honest and determine to make your trip a success. “Tails up!!!”
Capt. Donnie and his deckhand Jay picked us up from the boathouse Nice, clean boat fully geared. They worked hard for us all day and put fish on the deck. Watched the weather and kept us clear of the storms. Great trip and will definitely book again. Thanks guys!
Words cannot describe the amazing day we had with Captain Donnie Jackson of Tails Up Fishing Charters. It was an absolutely super experience and a full day of fishing action. Captain Donnie is very polite and personable, extremely knowledgeable, and energetic to say in the least. He knows the water, the fish, and his boat, and gear are quality. We were blessed with good weather, and with his expertise, we boated a trophy tuna, swordfish, several mahi and red snapper. Going home with a cooler of fish was the icing on the cake after a fun day on the water. We will definitely be back for another trip with Tails Up! Thanks Captain Donnie for all your hard work, preparation, and getting us out to the Gulf of Mexico and back safely. #tailsuprocks!
