We caught so many fish I lost count. This was the first time going out with Bent Charters and it was a amazing experience that my... More

We told Captain James we wanted a trophy barracuda and he delivered! We were catching fish in less then 5 minutes after putting the rods out. He even extended our trip which allowed us to catch another big one. He was very friendly,knowledgeable and dedicated to his profession. The best fishing trip we have been on and we have been...

Have used this bait shop for years for bait, gear & rod/reel repairs. Very helpful. They are open early to late.

Thanks for the review but we are not a bait and tackle store nor do we repair reels. If you need to charter a fishing boat, we can help you out. If you need help with the store that you are trying to leave the review for, I can probably help you out, as I know most on this side... More

Awesome day on the boat! James took us out fishing and we were catching something every 30 seconds the whole time we were out! Caught tons of snapper a few grouper and a triggerfish as well as others! James was great, helped us with the fishing and he was super friendly. Absolutely recommend!

Captain Lance took us out for a half day charter and we had an excellent time! We caught hogfish and lots of other fish which were excellent to eat! We would definitely book Bent Charters again!

My family and I went on an 8 hour trip with Captain James. We were told upfront that the bottom fishing for Snapper and Grouper hasn't been the best, but we still caught enough to feed 10 people. The second half of the day was spent catching King Fish and Sharks. We caught 7 sharks, including a massive 8 foot... More

Kudos to Captain Lance for working with us to get a full day trip in on short notice. We went out with Captain James and crushed it. He had us fish all day. Grouper, snapper, Mahi Mahi, at least a 10 foot tiger shark that wore us all out , and ended the day with a massive goliath grouper. This... More

Captain James took us out for an all day trip. Our primary goal was to catch our limit of grouper and then have some fun with whatever else was biting. In almost 2 hours of fishing we had already caught our limit of grouper and was quickly closing in on our snapper limit too. Once the day was over the... More

We had so much fun fishing. Thank you Captain James! This was our first time on a private charter and it's so much better than the party boats. Even our 13 year old who hates fishing loved it. Bent Charters was referred to us from another company that was booked. Caught 57 fish and kept 49. Captain James flayed the... More
