I have grown up in South Florida and fished the waters here my whole life. I have fished with Capt. Jim and Devon a couple times now and can say they are one of the best charter boats down here. The BEAST is a great boat with the ability to handle rough weather extremely well and get you too where ou need to be to catch fish fast. One of the trips I did with Jim and Devon is the Cubera trip because that is a specialized trip and my brother and I figured the best bet to catch a big one would be to fish with someone who catches them all the time. Needless to say we were not disappointed we caught 2 massive Cuberas and lost a couple on the trip, we had a wonderful time on the water. These two guys fish hard for you and do their absolute best to get you on fish.

Great boat and a great crew. Beast is one of those rare charters where you are treated like an angler and catch your own fish. For a true angler, I cannot think of a better charter operation. Looking forward to our semi annual trips.

We have fished off every coast and have yet to find better people, boat and fishing excitement than with Capt Jim and Devon. We have another charter already set up with them in April 2014 and cant wait to get down there. Just booked it as a stocking stuffer and Santa couldn't be happier!

I first met Jim and Devon in 2007, when my father and I first realized our dream of spending a full week on holiday doing what we do best, fishing!

We spent a total of 5 days with Jim and Devon, and even when the weather was harsh for both my father and myself, they took extremely good care of us. We caught fish every single day we were with them, which is more than I can say for other charters we have been on.

In fact, I enjoyed my time with them so much, that when I decided it was time for my sons first proper big fish experience, I decided to go back. It was a huge success, we hooked onto lots of fish but unfortunately had to cut one of the trips short due to our poor landlubber legs not quite being up for it!

To conclude, I don't think there is a better Captain or first mate in Miami. With a little luck, I will be seeing both Jim and Devon very soon!

I really wanted to do a fishing trip as part of my bachelorette party weekend (I am the bride) and my 2 bridesmaids did not oblige. We didn't really know what to expect but I felt good going into it because the reviews here on Tripadvisor were so good! We booked a 3/4 day trip.
Despite us arriving about 30 minutes late and slightly hungover, Captain Jim and Devon greeted us eagerly. We fished for different types of bait in 2 different areas (and were excited to catch even these small fish).
When the real fishing began, we hooked 3 in about the first 15-20 minutes. The very first one was even a sailfish but we lost him, much to everyone's dismay. We did snag a bonita and tons of dolphin fish. A few times we had more than one line going at once. First mate Devon was phenomenal from the start, attending to each pole, hook and catch the entire time. The guys had such great attitudes in dealing with our group of rather inexperienced females! Not the calmest day on the sea, we ended up a little seasick towards the end, but once we were done for the day and started to head back, we happily passed out in the plush beanbags they provided and had a nice ride in. Once docked, Devon cut up our dolphin fish for us to take home and eat/freeze! We had a lot!
Capt Jim is very connected in that he's very accessible via phone, email, website , etc. In addition to the good reviews, one of the reasons I chose Beast was his speedy reply to my initial inquiry and email accessibility (when no other charters ever got back to me). You can even pay via credit card on the boat which makes everyone's life a little easier.
My girls and I are still talking about the trip and our pictures from the day are generating a lot of buzz and LIKES amongst friends on facebook! We would absolutely do it again and hope to one day! As well as recommend them to anyone!
