We were a family who went on a half day fishing trip with Skinner. It was obvious that this is not something the captain does for the live of fishing but much more as a job. He spent most of the transport part of the trip fiddling with his phone and just made sure that we caught some small fish... More

Our captain, along with captains that we recommend strive to provide our clients with a memorable experience. If at any point during the trip your captain was on an electronic device, it was because you were on smaller fish and he... More

Wes was super nice. However, we had 6 guys and between 6 of us we only caught 6 total fish. It took at least an hour of our time to get to the spot and catch the bait. Fun experience since we had never done that before. But for sure not worth the amount of money we spent. Disappointing. Then... More

What a fantastic day!! 4 boats, 16 guests, great captains. Beautiful weather, lots of fish!! We will definitely be back next year and highly recommend! We saw lots of dolphins and many other wild life. The only thing I suggest is bringing your own speaker & music. The boats did not have this.

Captain Wes met us at the dock ready to fish. We were able to fish the entire time and didn't need to spend time getting bait. We caught over 4 types of fish. I would recommend this for vacationers just wanting to get out on the water for the afternoon.

My friend and I went out with Capt. Wes this Saturday. We had the time of our lives. We were on the fish all day. We caught kingfish, cobia, tripletail, shark, and snapper. It was an awesome day and we will be enjoying fish dinners for many nights! Capt. Wes provided a super fun day. He is just a fun... More
