About Our Charters


Mike, Thank you for a great day fishing. Everyone was very pleased at how the day turned out. We will see you again.

Thanks,

~ John C.



Glad I finally got out with you guys. I just wanted to tell you that my guys and I had a blast fishing with your guys on Sunday. Capt Carlos is an amazing bottom fishing guide who seems to know everything about every piece of structure out there. Everyone was first class and also extremely personable and we enjoyed it very much. Cant wait to book another trip with you guys.

Thanks again

~ Darren B.



We had such a great time. I already know we are coming back for another trip. You guessed it! I thought you were exagerating about how many fish you caught. I could not believe how you knew the water and where to find them. You kept Matthew busy the whole time.

I look forward to another trip soon. Thanks again,

~ Jeanne K.



Just wanted to thank you again for a great time on your Charter a couple weeks ago. Catching my first striper and Black fish was memorable. You and Carlos made even a newbie feel right at home. I look foward to more trips!

Best regards,

~ Jason G.



Capt. Fred I can't thank you enough for providing the intel out there today that gave my son the opportunity to catch this 41" 26Lb Striper. Fred went out of his way with a follow up call after providing some info, all to make sure we caught fish today. We ended the day with a 39" and 41". We also caught a 38" last night about 8:30pm on a Mann stretch bunker lure trolling.
