Captain Dennis Minnick is US Coast Guard licensed and Red Cross CPR certified.
Best fishing in town and Super family friendly. wouldn't use anyone else!!!
Tim was great, as was his helper. We were on the fish within minutes and had a great haul. We will be back with double time charters next year!
My 12 year old son and I chartered Capt. Tim and the Double Time for a day trip and had a great day of fishing! The catamaran handled a rough day much better than a rolled hull, and Tim's prep work with rigging, knowledge of the reef structures in the area, and quality equipment made the most of our time on the water. We will be back next year!
Great time aboard the Double Time last week!!!! Captain Tim is a very flexible Captain and I recommend him for a Great Fishing Trip. See Ya next year..
Heard from a buddy of mine that Double Time Charter would not disappoint. Boy was he right on. Captain Tim kept us on the fish all day catching something on nearly every cast. To finish the day off we wanted to try shark fishing. As luck would have it, Tim took us to a spot and one cast and 12 minutes we had one. Can't imagine topping this trip. Thanks again!!!
Captain Tim was awesome got us on the fish all day and took care of three big Texas boys hitting the amberjacks!
Captain Tim was the best. My wife, 18 year old daughter, and 14 year old son were a little reluctant to go fishing at all. I mentioned this to him and he went out of his way to make sure we caught fish, a lot of them. I watched my family smile as they were catching the fish. It was one of the highlights of our trip. I am going back to Captain Tim for life, he won me over in 4 hours of fun.
I've never been on a smoother - riding boat or fished with a captain that has more knowledge on how to catch a wide variety of species. It's a no-brainer, book him today for your next trip.
We went out today for some snapper, and Jason got us on the reds immediately. Within literally 15 minutes, we had 4 nice (10 pound plus) fish in the cooler before heading further out. He put us on a great spot with some HUGE reds and mangrove snapper, largest red was almost 19 pounds and 3 of the mangroves were netween 8 and 9 pounds! And we got a Mahi-Mahi while out there to top it all off. If im ever in need of another charter trip, bet your ass its gonna be with captain Jason. Overall, just a phenominal trip on a comfortable boat. Cant beat it. Thank you
Simply put -if you like to fish....you HAVE to book with Jason. My highest recommendation for locals and visitors alike. Knowledgeable, friendly, courteous and puts you on the fish!
Jason was very clever with his techniques on how to catch snapper and other fish as well! He knew exactly where to take us for us to catch fish. We actually got a fish within the first 5 minutes. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.
I've fished all over the country with some of the best guides in the business. I'm getting ready to book my third trip this year with captain Jason Downs. He has consistently produced fish while other guides have struggled. He's great with beginners and can definitely show the experienced angler a thing or two. I can't say enough good things about him and Bite Back Charters! He truly is the best of the best!
Loved everything about fishing with Jason, lucked out finding him. Highly recommend using Bite Back Charters. Knows what he is doing and cares about his customers. Had so much fun we went twice. Thanks Jason! My family may return to the area just so we can book with you again
Our trip on the Vitamin Sea was awesome! Captain Victor is a great guy who knows all there is to know about fishing in this area. He brought us to a perfect spot where we got our limit on snapper plus several others. The boat was really nice, with a big cabin, A/C, and bathroom. This trip was definitely the highlight of our vacation. We love Capt Vic!
Zack is an amazing angler and guide and will make your fishing trip unforgettable!!
The review is in the name: Strickly Fishing. Cpt. Zack Strickland will put you on the fish and show you, your friends, and your family a good time on the water. Book now!
Don't settle for less, If you want to fish with The Best (a Legend), call STRICKLY FISHING. !!>NOW
We really enjoyed our day out with Captain Skylar. He was very knowledgeable, communicated well and fun to be around. We caught a lot of fish! We would definitely use him again.
Skylar was a great guide and captain. Hospitable and tireless enduring we all had a great day fishing!
Man we had a blast!! You definitely are a master of your trade!! Will pass your name on.
Book it, you will not regret it! Captain Scooter is the real deal! Had a great time fishing with Reel Addiction for 2 days. Awesome trip....
Had an amazing day on the water with Captain Scooter. If you want fun and fish in the cooler, look these guys up. They know what they're doing. Will definitely spread the word about Reel Addiction charters.
Scooter made our trip very worth while. Even more so, that we booked a second trip the next day after our first! We caught a ton of Spanish Mackerel, Speckled Trout, Red Snapper, a few pufferfish (fun fish to see) and a few sharks. If you want a charter that won't break your wallet and you'll have fun catching fish, Reel Addiction Charters is the way to go!
We had originally planned a trip with another company but due to the weather it had to be cancelled. Our original captain referred us to Scooter as his family was heading out of town on vacation and Scooter called me right away to set something up for our group to go out. The two dads as well as our 3 boys had a great time and made memories that will last a lifetime! Thanks Scooter for showing them a great time!
I couldn’t have asked for a better day. We caught sea trout and grouper but I wanted a fight so we found the barracuda. Captain ryan kept us fishing and having fun. Around 12 big barracuda made it in the boat and I fought dozens more with a huge smile on my face each time. Book with Tell N’ Tails and you won’t be sorry.
Captain Ryan put us on lots of fish including jacks, snappers, and a monster tarpon.
Ryan knows his water and where the fish are. He kept us in fish all day especially the targeted species were looking for. We will use him again and would highly recommend.
You did an awesome job putting us on the spots!! We had such a good time! Thanks for a fun trip. Looking forward to the next!
Capt ryan is amazing, had an absolutely perfect experience.
Ryan was great, on time, clean boat, put us on fish in every spot. He really went the extra mile for my 11 year old daughter and was very patient with all of us. Great family fishing day!
Couldn't have picked a better person/Captain for our family fishing excursion. Devin was a very helpful deckhand and Ryan put us on all the right spots. We will definitely be doing more outings with him in the future. Outstanding time!!!
I would definitely recommend Marlin hunter, Rick does an amazing job, very professional and knows what he's doing and I love his boat.
Easily the highlight of our family trip to Pensacola area. Rick was very accommodating and great with the kids, even the youngest ones. Our whole group loved it, and are counting down until we go back.
Best fishing trip ever !!! Won't fish with anyone else.. Thanks Rick.
Really enjoyed fishing with Capt. Rick and first mate Griffin...they are very nice, easy-going folks with a wealth of knowledge about the Gulf fishery. We started a little slow, but they kept searching for the fish, and we found them in a big way!!! Even though we were at the end of our charter when we found the fish, Capt. Rick told us that we would stay with them as long as our arms and backs could stand the fight. I highly recommend this Captain...a real pro and a great guy to fish with.
Captain Rick is a phenomenal fishing guid. He is very knowledgable, professional and friendly, Capt. Rick put us on top of the fish and did everything in his power to keep the fish coming in. Red Snapper, Grouper, King and Spanish Mackerel and Even a Barracuda. Just do yourself a favor and book your trip with Marlin Hunter!! Captain Rick knows his fishing.
Great captain and trip. It was rough out but still were put on plenty of fish. Caught a ton and everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. Definitely going again if I’m back in Pensacola.
Captain Rich is awesome. I like to call him the fish whisperer. He knows where the fish are and what bait they want. My husband and I had a great time and would recommend taking a charter with Captain Rich.
I recently connected with Capt Rich for a fishing excursion in Tampa Bay and had a blast. We caught several trophy species along with fresh dinner. My arms were wore out from all the fish we caught. Can't wait to get back out with the captain again for more fun fishing.
I usually book with the captain a few times a year. Once during Tarpon season and a couple more times when i want to go after the Snook or Reds. The captain knows all of the spots and ensures the day is filled with action. Being from Tampa I like to fish but, I don't have a boat or many supplies, so booking with Rich is a joy as he provides everything you need to tear up the water! On a side note - his boat is fantastic and is fun to cruise on from spot to spot. Great looking Avenger custom!
Captain Rich made a memorable experience for my family. My son always talked about fishing and I had no clue on what to do. A friend referred that I headed out with Captain Rich. It was easy to book, he had everything we needed, and he ensured we had a great time out on the water. He was great with the kids and very knowledgeable about the area. He is very passionate about fishing and the experience you have. Highly recommend chartering with him. We look forward to our next experience!
Great Guide. My family enjoyed a 5 star operation from the captain. We learned a lot and will be back.
We caught amazing fish and Captain Ray really knew his stuff! A real professional Captain.
Hey guys and gals, this was a top knotch trip. I usely don’t rate guides that I haven’t been out with, but Capt. Ray is an exception! Let’s say exceptional guide. Unlike other guides he treated me with much respect. Unlike others I have been with that think just because you hired a guide your a dummy or just ignorant as crap. Not Catp. Ray, we had a blast felt as if I knew him for years. I ask to catch a snook on top water. Well the proof is in the pic.!!! Looking forward to next trip
My wife and I fished with Capt. Ray on 01/17/2017. We caught 15 seatrout. It was a good experience. Capt. Ray is a very good fishing guide. He has fished all his life. We plan to go with him again in April.
HAD AN AMAZING DAY FISHING.. CAUGHT SOME COOL FISH. BEAUTIFUL MAHI MAHI AND A SAILFISH.. CAPTAIN Q AND HIS CREW ARE GREAT. DEF WORK WELL TOGETHER. WILL BE FISHING WITH THESE GUYS AGAIN! HIGHLY RECOMMEND #MICHELINCONFERENCE #MIAMI2017
First class boat and crew! Fishing with proven tournament winners, what more could you ask for? Excellent crew personality. Well recommended.
Top notch captain and mate. Got us on our target fish and ended the day with double sail and tuna hookups. Professional in every aspect from the boat, equipment and knowledge. Couldn't ask for a better trip.
Absolutely best boat on the water for CATCHING fish hands down!
Best fishing charter in Miami. Cap & Mike are 2 awesome dudes. Cap put us on 2 Sailfish, 2 Kingfish, 4 massive Black Fin Tuna, large Dolphin while Mike had everything running smoothly with the kites & reels. Can't say enough about this crew, top notch & great dudes
Captain Q and Ryan make a great team. From the time you hit the dock they are very professional. Far exceeded our expectations. Been on 3 different offshore charters and by far this was the best.
I dont think you can find a nicer captain then Q.. everything about him screams professionalism and class... perfection every time!
Captain Q. and crew had us hooked up within 40 minutes of leaving the dock. His local knowledge, experience and friendly crew made for a great trip. Not to mention we landed six sailfish and missed a few along the way to make for a great fishing experience! A great all around trip!
Hey folks, you want to have the full Fishing experience in Offshore fishing, well The Cutting Edge is the way to go. You will be treated with the highest of respect. Capt Q and 1st Mate Mike are great guys, you start your day catching the bait you will use out on the water. Then you will head to the Fishing grounds and there have the chance to big in the big boys. Had a great time with them and plan on coming back down again.
We went out with Captain Q & first mate Ryan for my 30th Birthday. It was an amazing day on the water. We caught 19 Mahi, 1 skipjack tuna, and a 5ft sailfish. The Cutting Edge is in excellent condition and very clean. Captain Q & Ryan are both very knowledgeable and accommodating. Captain Q is well renowned and it is evident as to why from the moment you step on the boat. I highly recommend booking a trip with the Cutting Edge. We would definitely love to fish with them again!
Definitely one of the best charter boat operations in Miami !!! I have known capt. "Q" my whole life and there isn't a better person on the planet !!
Great boat and one hell of a Captain!
Best Charter Boat In MIami ,first class operation !!!
Captain Pete and Jonny are great, captain Pete is Knowledgeable and knows his waters!! We had a unreal day, I would recommend wild life charters to anyone looking to catch!!
Pete is a great fisherman! And a great guy! You will have a blast fishing off miami! Take a day off and go fishing with one of the best!
Kenny is a very experienced Captain and will make sure you catch plenty of fish! He took care of everything for us and was very good with my 10yr old son. This was one of the best fishing trips I have ever taken. Next time we visit I am calling this same company.
We had a blast! It was my two son’s first trip and was very impressed with the attention and encouragement. I could not have asked for a better trip.
Seriously, anyone looking to be put on fish and have a great trip… Capt. Kenny Way will produce! Professional, courteous, and prepared! I have fished with Capt. Kenny Way several times, as a repeat customer with my 6 year old son, each time being an awesome experience for both he and myself!
Had an excellent time fishing with these guys!
Our fishing trip was an excellent experience. I would recommend Maximus on your next fishing trip. Justin was great with my family and very knowledgeable about the fish we were trying to catch. If your looking to fish in Destin give Captain Justin a chance. You won’t be disappointed .
I highly recommend Maximus with Captain Justin. You will catch fish and not be disappointed. This was our 2nd booking with Maximus and both were 5 Star trips.
Had a great time! Sons are 11 and 12 they we’re wore out catching fish! Had a great time will be back!
Captain Justin was very informative, friendly, and fun! He answered all of our questions and had some good stories. We caught a good variety of fish including a Lion Fish and ended up with plenty to take home. Maximus was fast, smooth, and easy to fish from. Overall a great experience and the highlight of our Mancation 2017! We are already talking about fishing with Captain Justin again next year.
Was a great experience for Scott, Dakota and Canyon. Got to the fishing spot quickly. Caught 2 barracuda, 2 sharks, 3 Cobia and several others. Excellent equipment, service and bait. Had fun. Would highly recommend!
We had a great time and caught a ton of fish! The boat gets you there and back a lot faster than the traditional large fishing boats! Excellent we will for sure use Justin again!
Great trip, perfect for beginners or experienced fisherman. We were able to keep Kings and Mahi. Too many trigger fish to count that had to go back. Caught Kings, Mahi, Red snapper, Trigger, Shark, and Scamp. Thanks Justin.
Took us out two days before tropical storm Nate hit Destin. 5-6 ft swells but we still caught 25 fish! Capt. Justin delivered just as he promised. I would go back in a heart beat!
We had an awesome full day fishing with Captain Justin. It was a lil rough out there but Justin took us right to the best spots and we caught a lot of fish. Would definitely recommend booking a trip and we would would definitely book with Captain Justin again
Best offshore trip of my life
Our trip was awesome! From the easy parking to the super clean boat to the great personality of Capt. Justin to the awesome fishing! I will definitely be back!
Man,, I’ll tell you what!!! What a great Time my son and I had this gentleman made our first fishing trip a hell of a experience! And we would join him anytime for future trips thank you Captain Justin ... and a hell of a fish filet man if I might add as well.
My sons and went out with Jordan last week and it was awesome this guy was a blast. My boys are 15 and 17 and they said they would've had a good even if they didn't catch anything because Jordan was so entertaining. That wasn't the case though we caught several good fish. We will definitely be back to fish with Jordan.
One of the best experiences I've ever had. If you're in Destin, this is a must do. And there is no better candidate than Captain Jordan. From the moment I told him that one of the passengers was a local 14 year old boy that has been battling leukemia for several months and that we would not be able to stay out much more than an hour, he completely understood. Normally most charters require a 4 hour minimum but this was not a problem for Jordan, and the best part was, we called him last minute to see if he was even available. Jordan was fully aware that we might not have even been able to show up the next day on a moments notice, or that at any moment while we were out, we might have to turn around. Jordan cleared his personal time just to take us out without any hesitation. Despite our trip being short on time, we got right to it and within 30 minutes we were hooked up to a decent sized sand shark. Even though Johann has lost most of his ability to do many of the hobbies he loves, he was still able to reel the shark most of the way! I have not seen this kid so happy in so long, it was a blessing to get him out there and have a great time. We were all having so much fun that Jordan kept us out there for almost an extra 45 minutes. I don't know many of the other fishing captains but I can say this, the world could use more high caliber men like Captain Jordan. A special thanks to Captain JJ and Eric White who referred us to Captain Jordan.
Absolute best fishing experience we could have ever asked for. Jordan was an amazing captain and did everything he could to make sure we had a wonderful time. Super patient and knowledgeable. Can't wait until next time!
Jordan was an excellent captain and fishing guide. He took us out for an early morning trip and we caught our limit of red snappers. Fun day! I would highly recommend him and we'll look him up next time. Thanks!
Best fishing trip of my life! Jordan does great things for the Veterans by participating with Soldiers on the Water. He is a pro at what he does and we caught some big monsters on our day out fishing.
Got recommended to Jordan by an old friend, he didn't disappoint. The fish didn't bite as much as we wanted, but everything Jordan tried worked, so he definitely knows what he's doing out there! The best part was catching a keeper Gag while targeting AJs. My son got seasick, and to take his mind off of it, Jordan put him on some fish, and that seemed to work! Overall awesome experience, thanks Jordan!
I've been on dozens of salt water fishing charters and this was the best trip by far!! Jordan was awesome and caused us to win the fishing competition by a long shot. 2nd place was so far behind us that it wasn't even a competition.....there is no way at all we would have been able to do this with out Jordan! We will never book a different captain again.
Had a wonderful time with an experienced crew that can really put you on some fish. Great time gentlemen I'm sure we will be back soon.
They reminded me what true customer service is all about! Great service, respect for the fishery and attention to safety! Most of all, the most pleasant captain and mate I have ever had! And bonus, we caught some great fish on a challenging weather day! Kudos John and John!
Capt. Jj is the best skipper in the waters surrounding the Destin area.
JJ took my son and I out on an Awesome fishing adventure today catching king mackerel He took care of us like family and he knows his fishing!! Will definitely book with him again in the future!! I highly recommend Captain JJ on the Soggy Bottom II!!
Went gulf fishing for 6 hours, caught a load of red snappers, groupers, triggerfish, Bonita, and Spanish mackeral. Captain J.J was excellent on putting us on some big fish. I would highly recommend this charter. Captain J.J is highly experienced and friendly. We will definitely be back next year and choose this charter
We had a great trip, despite not so perfect weather conditions. Captain JJ put us on fish at every spot we tried. We caught Cobia, King Mackerel, Triggerfish, Red Snapper, Jack Crevelle, Barracuda, Remora, and had the fights of our lives catching 4 Amberjack. Will be contacting JJ next year for another trip!!
Captain JJ had us on fish every time the boat stopped. He showed us a great time on the water and we made memories that will last a lifetime. Thanks for an awesome trip!
JJ was an awesome captain. We had a group of 4 which included my 7 year old son. JJ was excellent with all of us, but especially my son. He made sure he got to reel in plenty of fish! We caught a neat variety of fish over a 6 hr trip. I would definitely recommend his services, and will book with him again when back In Destin
My family had the most amazing time with Captain JJ. I am pretty sure my son thinks he is a super hero. But seriously Captain JJ was professional, customer oriented, knowledgeable, friendly, and just fantastic! I can't say enough good things, we will definitely be back! Thanks so much for making my son's summer!!!
The best in Miami. A must charter for the experienced or novice angler.
I have been fishing with Thomas Flyer for over 30 years. Captain Jimbo and Rick Thomas are the Best there is. Always satisified customers!
Second time fishing with Captain Jimbo and Captain Rick. Wonderful time and so good with our three boys. This time we caught three Amber Jacks, some Bonitos and six Mahi. So much fun!!
Excellent experience - these guys really know what they're doing. Superior angling in every respect, definitely recommend these guys.
It was my second time fishing with these cats but definitely not the last. I highly recommend them to anyone that doesn't just want to do a boat ride, but seriously pursue, hunt AND CATCH FISH. Incredibly knowledgeable, persistent, professional and intent on catching fish! NICE, fun guys to boot! Any questions, just give a shout. The fact that they're out of Bayside Marina is a huge plus too instead of having to get up at crack of ass and haul down to Keys. 34 years experience and still going strong!!!!
Rick and Jimbo are the real deal! I have fished with them three times in Bimini and they have never disappointed! I can't wait to go out with them again, they really know how to put you on the fish!!!! These guys are a bargain at twice the price!
Jimbo and Rick are True professionals, our 5th trip with them.
Awesome captains had a great trip. Shark sailfish tuna and lots of goid fights on the rod
Rick and Jimbo make your day fun and successful. We chartered their boat many times to take customers fishing. Always a successful and memorable experience!!
They are very professional and focused to take you to fish!! Their dedication is unbelievable ! We were four "mature" ladies who love fishing and we were able to get at least 40 good size Mahi's!! Really amazing !! All fishing days are not the same but rest assured that if the fish is bitting the Thomas Flyer and the Thomas brothers will put you on them !!! Thank you guys for an amazing day !!!
I was in Naples visiting family and decided to take my 8 year old son on an eco-tour with Capt Jim. It was great!! It was so nice to unplug for an afternoon and just enjoy nature and my son loved it. He especially loved seeing the alligators! Capt Jim really knows the area and kept us entertained the whole time. We had a blast.
Captain Jim was awesome! He knows the area like the back of his hand and we were catching fish in minutes. I landed my first Snook! He's very knowledgeable and had really interesting stories and he's funny! It was a great trip. Going to try his eco tour next!
Capt Jeremy took us on a half day fishing trip. We’re a family of 4 with 2 boys (8 & 12). We got an early start at 6 a.m and started out catching some bait fish. He explained to us what he was looking for and engaged the kids. Within minutes we had a net full of bait fish. As soon as we arrived at our first fishing spot and started throwing lines out we got bites and caught several king mackerel (though too small to keep) and several good size spanish mackerel. He changed fishing spots when bites got slow and later on we changed to fishing for some red snapper. Capt Jeremy knew the right spots to go to catch fish so went home with a cooler full of spanish mackerel and red snapper filets and great memories. He cleaned the fish right in front of us on the dock - kids loved it - and packaged it with ice for us ready to go. We had a great time and will be back for more fishing. Capt Jeremy will tailor the trip to make it work for you.
Very good guide, Jeremy worked very hard for us ,caught lots of fish!
First time out today and had the best time ever! Caught my first Red Snapper within seconds of dropping! Spot on spots!! Thanks for helping us ladies and next year we will bring home the trophy!!
“Fishing on your boat was an enjoyable experience. It sure makes a difference when the captain not only knows his stuff, but is a good guy, too boot.”
“Many Saltwater fishermen in Florida fancy themselves great anglers and some, actually are at the top of their game. Only once in a long while does an angler come along that other fishermen envy and even boast about. One such gentleman is Captain Jeff Hagaman.”
Best fishing trip ever! We created memories that will last a lifetime!
Had a great trip with JT and Deb! They worked hard at making sure I enjoyed myself. Came home with lobsters and a new experience. Will be seeing you soon to chase the elusive bone.
We had a great time! I caught a black grouper. Jason was very knowledgeable and professional. He was patient with us as well as we were not very experienced at fishing!!! I can't wait to go back out fishing again! Great day!
Tara Baden, December 2016
Captain Jason had us on the fish in no time, professional, knowledgeable and friendly. Excellent equipment and boat. We couldn't have had better day!
Joe Wendorff, December 2016
Family booked me for Fathers Day. Captain JT was very knowledgeable. I have been a deep sea fisherman, but after this day with Captain JT in the back country, I am sold. It was a memorable day. Thanks Captain!!!
Steve Mitchell, September 2015
We had a great time fishing with Jason & Debbie!
Karri Konze, February 2018
Captain Jason took myself, parents and 19-year old son Kevin out reef fishing on Jan 5, 2017. We had a fantastic trip, catching (and releasing) several grouper, and snapper (yellowtail, Lane, mutton), hogfish, and a bonnet head shark. Captain Jason filleted the fish for us, and Kiki's Sandbar restaurant did a great job of cooking it for us! I highly recommend booking a charter with Boneafide!
Linda Tuttle Chrisey, January 2017
Jason and Debbie really run a Great Charter!We had a wonderful time and caught a bunch of fish.These to are really good people and will go out of their way to make it a great time!Thanks again for a great time!I will be back again for some more great fishing!You guys are awesome!
John Alderson, October 2017
Capatain Gary and Greg were awesome to work with. We caught Cobia, Spanish, king and some Bonita but the highlight of our fishing trip was what they called their petting zoo. A spot covered up with so many cobia my kids feed them by hand from the boat. See video. My whole family recommends Jamie G Charters after that experience. Thanks again captain Gary and Greg!
Lance Adamsom, August 2017
ONLY BEEN ON A CHARTER ONCE AND IT WAS WITH JAMIE G CHARTERS. WHEN I GO BACK ILL BE USING THEM AGAIN. CAPTAIN GARY KNOWS WHERE TO FIND THE FISH!
William Cawthon, June 2017
Been fishing on Jamie g several. Nothing but a great time. Always have fun and catch fish. Going again next month.
Greg Woodward, August 2017
5 Star outfit. Puts you on the fish no matter what!
Forrest Russell, December 2015
Top Notch Outfit! Catching fish and laughing all day!
Patrick Rusbridge, September 2016
This guy really know how to put you on the fish! One of my favorite adventures while I was in the South.
Rodrick Tester, October 2015
We had a great day fishing today!!! Captain Frankie and Jackson put us on the fish!!
Eric Heitman, June 2017
The name says it all. Captain Frankie is the man!
Kimekmo Mataio, June 2017
I have known Capt. Frankie for 35+ years he is an honest hard working Capt. that will put you on the fish!
Tom Hyder Jr., May 2017
Great day of fishing! Both the captain and deckhand put us on some nice fish. Superb experience.. highly recommend it! We will be back!
Russ Rogers, July 2017
We had an amazing day with Capt. Frankie and Jackson. We caught all the Red Snapper we could catch and then he took us trolling and we caught Spanish Mackerel and King Mackerel. We really enjoyed our half day trip and wish we could have spent all day with the Fishin Magician Team! If I could give him more stars I would!
Dawn Posey Keeney, July 2017
Talk about a fun day! Captain Frankie sure knows how to find the fish! I have know Frankie for 40+years. He was a deck hand on The Lisa so he paid his dues and learned the trade the right way. Now he is giving excellent customer service on his own boat the Fishing Magician. I highly recommend you sign up for a day on the water with Captain Frankie!
Lisa Woodburn Salom, July 2017
Thank you, Captain Frankie! We had a great time on our fishing trip. We appreciate your and your deck hand's patience with us. Definitely recommend your boat to others. We will be back!
Mycah Lauren Altman, August 2017
Captain Doug put us right on some beautiful wrecks as well as natural bottom locations in our hunt for the invasive lionfish. I'm happy to say the guy knows his stuff, and we hit 112 today! Without a doubt the first guy I will call for fishing or scuba adventures. If you want to go fishing, call the other guys. If you want to go CATCHING, call Doug!
Joe Collard, July 2016
My husband and I have now gone out with Captain Dougie two different times in the past four weeks. First time we did the Oriskany which is a must do! And dives that you want a skilled captain and divemaster along with you. And this weekend, he took us to the best sites for our first lionfish hunting experience. We ended up with 48 lionfish and three lobsters. Dougie is knowledgeable and will do everything he can to make sure you have the best time.
Judy Surrency Price, August 2016
Captain Doug did a great job getting us to some decent spots when almost every other charter cancelled for weather. He is extremely familiar with countless fishing spots and will bend over backwards to get you to the best available spot. Rocky, the deckhand/dive master was outstanding. Not only did he dive the spots before we dropped down to ensure there were fish and good visibility, but he also was a huge help with gear and pointing out which fish we could and couldn't shoot if we asked for it.
Ryan Zaccagnini, September 2016
Captain Doug is an excellent guide who is very knowledgeable and fun. We went fishing on the tail-end of Tropical Storm Cindy, and we still caught multiple fish. A good time was had by all! We highly recommend him and will definitely be back!
Chris George (I remember the name of the boat), June 2017
My wife and I took our oldest boy fishing with Capt Doug on Extreme Chaos and had a great day on the water. We are fortunate enough to be able to fish all over the world and my son said this was his "favorite of all time". As a father, those words are priceless. 5 stars all day long!
Matt Travis, June 2017
My father-in-law and I booked a fishing trip with Capt. Doug to go out bay fishing. Capt. Doug was super fun and personable. We knew right away we were going to have a great time. He took us to several spots to find where the fish would be hitting. We got out into the gulf and had a blast catching several Spanish Mackerel. The especially great aspect is that Capt. Doug made the trip fun and enjoyable; he really has a passion for what he does. He loves it and it shows! We will definitely be back and would love to book an even longer trip next time! Thank you for an awesome experience!! You rock!
Rachel Lynn Whittington, September 2017
Captain Doug is a true sportsman. He has a great passion for fishing. He was just as excited as us when a fish hit the line. He went above and beyond to make sure we had a great day. He even through in a free dolphin tour. I am thankful our original booking cancelled and we found Captain Doug. My Dad is still talking about him and what a great experience we had.

Went fishing on Monday, August 29th and had an absolute blast. I have been deep sea, and inshore fishing many of times, but this time was honestly the best! Capt. Doug was a great guide. He put us on fish right off the bat. He has a passion for what he does, and he shows it. As soon as you set the hook and say, "fish on" he is the most excited person on the boat, guaranteed! Will definitely be using him again the next time we are in town! Wouldn't have traded that day with any other Capt. Thank you for a fun filled day!

Capt Doug provided a great experience today for our family of four which included our kids ages 11 and 8. To say he was accommodating is an understatement; we jumped every hurdle the anti-fishing gods tried to put in our way. Doug made it a special day we'll remember forever. No question we'll be back and book with Doug!

Mother nature caused my crew to alter our plans from an offshore trip to inshore fishing trip with Captain Doug. We had 3 very novice fishermen on his boat which was a gorgeous boat with plenty of room for us and his cooler had plenty of room for our "refreshments". Captain worked his tail off to get us on some fish. We caught more than enough fish to keep us smiling and he even took us to Pirates Cove for lunch. A perfect way to spend a guys weekend! Thanks Captain for putting up with us!

My father and I are notorious for not catching anything on our trips, but Captain Don set us up!!! We had a trout 30 seconds after we anchored, and we stayed on fish the whole time. Most fun we've ever had on a fishing trip.
Paul S., June 2016
Without a doubt the most enjoyable trip I've had. Corey is a great captain who knows how to put you on fish. I would not hesitate with booking a trip. It is well worth the money.
Austin Pfeiffer, May 2015
I'll tell you what. Corey certainly knows wht he is doing. We caught 29 Sheepshead and 8 redfish. He is also a very generous person and ain't happy until you are. He also doesn't ever try to cut the trip short like some other captains he milks every minute of the trip he can.
Sean Fredericks, April 2013
Awesome time, and great Captain. Corey really knows what he's doing and will put you on fish. Well worth it.
Justin Johnson, July 2017
Had a great trip today with Corey! Took my son and his friend inshore fishing. Hit some great spots and caught a variety of fish! We will definitely use him again!
Mary Quay-Chastain, September 2017
Had a wonderful trip w Captain Corey Maxwell. This was our second outing w Doubled Up Charters and will not be our last. On our 4 hour tour we had fish on the line almost the entire trip. The Red Snapper and Bull shark we almost caught were the highlights of this years trip. We look forward to returning next summer.
Joshua Cox, August 2016
Went on a charter with Capt. Corey to catch red snapper. It was our first time deep sea fishing and we had a blast. Capt. Corey is very knowledgeable, funny and was very relaxed with the kids.
Tony Holzer, June 2017
Chris and his son as the first mate made our fishing excursion amazing! Down to earth guys that loved to cut up with our group. Very knowledgeable and has plenty of secret spots to make sure you get some bites! He filleted our grouper and other fish and hours later we were at a local restaurant grubbing. Great experience, highly recommend! Thanks!!
Rex Toler, May 2017
Wow... what a great time and amazing opportunity my wife and I had with Chris and his son. Even though we were dodging storms, we learned so much from Chris and got to enjoy the beauty of the ocean as well as fishing. Yes like Chris always says the women always out fish the men lol.. again we had a great time and will definitely be going out with Chris again on our next trip down to beautiful Destin!
Nick Wempe, June 2017
Chris + his son (and first mate), T, made this experience so much fun! We learned so much + they were both extremely knowledgeable. He was so much fun, genuine, and personable from the moment we met him. He works his butt off during the charter + never lets your rod go un-baited. When we returned, Chris filleted our fish + we had some of it cooked that night. We cannot wait to book our charter with Captain Chris + T next summer!
Morgan Todd Sturdivant, July 2017
Can't say enough about how great our experience was! Chris is a great guy and made sure we were entertained and on the fish all day. It's always a good day when you go home with 60 fish!! 10/10, will go out on the water with Chris again as soon as we can!!
Joe Cropper, August 2017
The exact fishing experience I was looking for. Captin Mitchell was great. He was high energy from start to finish, he knew his waters and kept us on the the fish all day. I would highly recommend him. I would absolutely do it again.
Justin Taylor, October 2017
These guys are great we went today 8/16/16 and had an awesome time. If your looking for great people and to catch fish book it with " one of a kind "
Kim and Brad Hillis, August 2016
I have been on many fishing trips with Capt. Chris. He knows the local waters and will put you on the fish. Avid anglers and beginners alike will have a blast on this charter.
Brian Armstrong, May 2017
Such an awesome day last week with Capt. Chris, Johnny and Ashton! We will be booking another charter with them again for sure!
Angie Kuhl Glasgow, September 2017
Captain Chris kept us on the fish, and when a spot would go cold he'd put us on another good one time and time again. First Mate Craig was extremely helpful and professional, he really took good care of us and has a lot of great stories. Bottom line, they made sure we had a busy day catching fish and were extremely nice; we will be coming back.
Aaron El, September 2017
Not all charters are created equal
Finding great ones is what we do
You will love these folks and catch fish
Florida Fisherman Magazine, May 2017
My husband and boys did a fishing trip with Charlie. They had a blast and caught a lot of fish. He was very patient and helpful with the kids. They can't wait to go again!
Allison Housh McPeek, April 2017
Couldn't have asked for a more perfect day - weather and seas were on our side. Capt. Charlie did a fantastic job - we had a blast. Mahi, skipjack tuna and a snowy grouper - gonna enjoy dinner tonight. Thank you for working hard for this NC Mountain Girl that came home.
Terrie Gaither Harris, June 2017
Best captain & mate combo in the sea. Captain Bouncer and 1st mate Abie are top notch.
Blakely Smith, April 2016
I would encourage anyone and everyone to make a special trip out to Miami Beach to go fishing with Captains Bouncer Smith and Abie Raymond. They are considered by many to be among the best fisherman in the world and Bouncer Smith is quite possibly the most knowledgable fisherman on Earth. I have been fishing with these guys on three occasions and every trip has been a fantastic experience. I've gone 2 for 2 on swordfish with Bouncer and Abie, we have also caught numerous other fish, and we won a fishing tournament. We also had the pleasure of seeing an entire pod of Pilot Whales, which numbered at least 15, with the biggest one being around 20 feet long. An entire day of 6-8 foot seas, at the very least, added to the fun and the 33' Dusky handled the rough weather with ease.
Zachary Atkinson, August 2016
My son and I went deep sea fishing for the first time. From the time we started until the time it ended, Captain Andrew had us in fish! He went above and beyond to make it a memorable experience! We will for sure look him up next time! You can't go wrong with Hooked On Fishing Charters! Thanks Captain Andrew!
Danny Gobble, June 2017
Captain Andrew is the best! He took my husband and 3 of my boys out and they had a blast! He went above and beyond to let them catch! They even caught two sharks and let them go. He exceeded our expectations and we cannot wait to come back and do another deep sea fishing tour! Red snapper, shark, mahi mahi, and more!
Amber and Don Dickey, June 2017
Ben was great from start to finish. He put us on the fish, explained what we needed to do and was very patient with one of our "new learners".
Kenneth Haman, February 2017
Best fishing trip I've ever been on. The morning weather was perfect and Capt. Ben knew exactly where to be at what time in order to give us the best opportunity to catch fish. We caught multiple snook and reds throughout the day with some even over slot fish. All I'm all I give the whole experience a 10/10! I will be booking again soon!
Nick Hamilton, August 2016
Captain Bob took 6 of us out on the Seahawk. We all caught fish, including 3 big mahi. Captain Bob was hardworking the whole time to make sure we got into some fish. Nice boat with A/C in the cabin, complimentary sodas, water and beer, and snacks. Bob was easy to get a hold of for directions, etc.
Phil Oliss, August 2017.
Father and son team. They did a great job at finding the fish. Look forward to fishing with them again!
Mark Rawe, July 2016
Took a last minute trip to Pensacola to spend family time. Boys wanted to fish so I found this charter. My 6 and 7 year old as well as myself had a blast. Capt Scooter knew where the fish were biting keeping them into it. Highly recommended.
Noah Fakouri February 2018
Great fishing experience. Capt Scooter put us right on the fish. Was able to catch a six foot bull shark too!
Kurt Gearhart, March 2018
One of the best captains I know
