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.”

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’ve been fishing with Captain Craig for over 17 years now and can honestly say I have had the memories of a lifetime. Every time I visit FL, first thing I do is call up Craig and set up a day or two of fishing. I have caught everything from 5lb trout waiting for a big shark to come by, to a 200lb tarpon. Every time I catch fish that every fisherman would dream of.”

“Captain Craig is an expert! I highly recommend booking a trip with him. He knows how to find fish and we all caught some very nice redfish. Thanks again Craig!”

“We did a 3/4 day trip with Capt Craig. We caught fish from start to finish. Craig would take us to a spot and we would get on fish quickly and as soon as they stopped biting it was off to the next spot. Repeat. We didn’t just catch a lot of fish, we caught big reds, big trout, and big snook. My dad has vertigo causing severe balance issues. Craig easily accommodated this without needing any communication. He’s an excellent captain and a good guy and I recommend him to anyone needing a charter.”

“Thanks for the great fishing charter! Got some great pics and just being out on the water was fun. I was expecting to get into the redfish and snook a little more, but I understand the weather is not controllable and only fishing a day and half limits your chances of success. Regardless, the experience was great! Eating our fresh catch of trout and redfish was a nice way to end the day (you should mention that deal with local restaurants ‘Crabby Bills’ on your website). If we vacation again in the area, we will definitely be repeat customers and will definitely want to commit a full day to Tarpon and another full day to Snook and/or Redfish (looks like we should a stayed around a few more days)! Thanks again and send on our appreciation to Justin as well.”

“Sorry it took so long to get this to you, but I am technologically challenged. I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed fishing with you and Justin. My wife asked me why I didn’t keep the fish to mount. Apparently, she would like for me to do that.”

“Really enjoyed my half day fishing with Craig. It was obvious that he’s been doing this for a long time. Took me to some great productive spots. I found him to be very professional & courteous – what all guides should be like. And it was obvious that his #1 goal was to get me into some fish. Highly recommended!”
