On 1/5/22 I paid John Fishback, Charter Captain, New Port Ritchie $600.00 for 1/2 day Charter for 2 people on 4/5/22. He said he would communicate with me by email. He never did. The day before the 5th charter I called him with no answer. I called a second time, no response. About 8 pm on the 4th I got Captain Jared A/K/A Jared's Fishing Charters to agree to take me and my visiting grandson on 4/5 at 9:00 am. We caught 15 fish...including two 27" redfish by Noah my grandson. Jarred was a super captain and bailed me out due to John Fishback standing me up. On 4/6 Fishback responded saying I never paid him so I was not on active list which was wrong as I had paid him and he never communicated that to me nor answer my telephone pleas for response up to day of agreement. I am very disappointed in John's service but really pleased with Captain Jared's service Guardian Angel last minute "Save the Day" performance and would recommend Captain Jared HIGHLY.

Captain John always delivers! I took my boys out with Captain John and they made life long memories. He does a fantastic job of teaching kids how to fish and moving around to ensure your group has a wonderful experience.
If you are in the area definitely look him up it's worth it and you will have a blast!

My son and I had a wonderful day on the water fishing with Captain John! John is extremely knowledgeable and helpful in every way. We caught Snook, Jack Crevalle, Reds, and over 40 Trout. I got my first in-shore slam. I would highly recommend Captain John!

Captain john was very friendly and courteous. He knew where to put us on the fish and we were all catching fish, sometimes 2 and 3 hooked up at once! He was very accommodating, we can't wait to fish with him again.

Capt Todd did a great job putting us on the fish. We are three big guys and we were comfortable the whole time. Big variety of fish. Capt Todd was constantly baiting our hooks or changing rigs. Thank you Capt Todd for a great time on the water. See you next time.

We went out the Saturday before Easter. John was great. We had a mixed group- My dad 70+, wife, son (11) and older brother. The boat was great and perfect for the type of fishing. John was very knowledgeable and super helpful. The 11 year old caught the most fish. John really wanted to get us on the fish. Great day on the water and we caught plenty of fish. He will get all of our business for all of our trips. Every time I come down to visit my parents in Hudson, we will be booking a fishing trip with them.
