What our recent charter boat fishing clients are saying
“Capt Craig will be my go to guy every time I visit the Tampa and Clearwater area. Knowledgeable and works hard to make sure you have a great trip.
Shared some of his 25 plus years tips and secrets. Showed us a few knots. Used a couple different techniques to make sure we all caught fish. Even cleaned the fish and recommended an inexpensive restaurant to cook them for us.”
“Spent half day fishing with Captain Craig. He was great with my 8 yr old grandson. He was well prepared and knowledgeable. Made it for a great time.”
Hey Captain Craig, thanks again for bringing us on that awesome charter on Thursday. It was the most tarpon action I’ve seen in one day. I hope we get to go on another charter with You and Justin next summer. Thanks Alot!”
“I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed fishing with you and Justin… Thanks, again, for an incredible morning on the water.”
“Keep up the good work and thanks for putting us on the fish!”
Eric & John Anderson, SC
Thanks for a wonderful two days of fishing last week. The Tarpon was incredible. I know some folks up in KY that are excited about the fish! You should be hearing about another trip soon!”
