This was my first gulf charter trip. After extensive research, my brother booked a 6-hr excursion with our sons: ages 6, 10, 11 and 12. Experience has given me low expectations. I realize that with fishing, you sometimes have unsuccessful outings--it's called fishing, not catching, for a reason. In my mind, a trip like this is really all about having... More

This is the third fishing charter I've done in the Madiera Beach/Indian Rocks area. I have enjoyed the others, but this charter with Cpt. Tom and 1st mate Cody, was great. I decided to do the 6 hour trip this time to go for some bigger species of fish. My sons and nephews range from age 6 to 12. We... More

3 of us took the full day private charter this past Friday. Captain Tom was professional and more importantly safety oriented. He also knew the locations to go where the fish should be biting. We were able to take a cooler on the boat with beer and food. His 1st mate Cody made life easy by baiting the hooks for... More

Booked a full day trip while on vacation. So glad we did. It was great fun and we caught an abundance of fish, which Capt. Tom cleaned and filleted for us. Delicious!! The first mate, Cody was on the ball. We didn't have to do anything but enjoy the day. We can't wait to go back again.

Appreciate and Thankful for booking early. We are a Fishing Charter boat and it is essential that customers understand booking ensures your reservation. However on the day of your trip, Captain Tom canceled because of inclement weather; a lighting storm, wind and rain. Safety is our greatest concern because we care about our customers and their children. Captain Tom takes... More
