Had the pleasure of fishing on John's boat along with 4 other people the morning of May 11th. Weather forecast was windy, but John was able to still have us comfortably fishing. We caught bait fish (herring) with ease in the cast net before moving up the main part of the inlet to fish. John was able to very skillfully... More

He went out of his way to make sure we all caught atleast one fish, and with a few different species too. Great hospitality John, will... More

Hey, I spend a halt day fishing with John and it was awesome! John is a real fisherman. I caught two bass, one stinger (I hope this is how you call it) and two queenfishes. One of them was huge! John prepared filets for me, so I had delicious queenfish for dinner! Thanks John!

We (3 of us) booked a trip on March 9th and found John to be very experienced and knowledgeable on the types of fish, the estuary and wildlife around. He worked very hard catching the live bait and took us to various places to catch fish, which we did! Just too bad the best fish (Barramundi) was able to unhook... More

Did the morning charter with my GF. Had a fantastic time! John is super knowledgeable fisherman. We caught all sorts of species. And catching live bait with the throw net was cool too.
