Capt. Emilio and his crew were professional, attentive, and knowledgeable. My son and I were given options regarding what kind of fishing we wanted to do and they obliged. I give Capt Emilio a very high recommendation and would definitely fish with him again.

Emilio knows the area very well and was accommodating to our goals for our fishing trip. He even offered to take us out earlier than we originally planned to take advantage of the current fishing climate.

Expensive boat ride. Not a single fish. Captain not interested in our experience. Shrugged his shoulders and said " oh well, we tried ".Would not recommend. Worst trip ever.

We had an absolutely terrific day fishing. We booked a six-hour charter with the hopes of bring home some Red Snapper. Captain Emilio and his crew put us on the fish immediately and we caught fish consistently throughout the day - which we know doesn’t always happen. ...Read More
