Can't Skeet was very honest about odds of catching fish, even offered the option of not going and getting refund. We were all in though, wanted to give... More

This is the first time I have ever written a review. But my experience with Bushwacker Sportfishing and Skeet was so exceptional that I feel compelled to write about it. A few things that impressed me: Gear - in perfect condition and everything you could ever want to have on an offshore boat; Mates - great personalities and 100% focused... More

His boat and fishing equipment was in perfect condition, which is the first thing you notice when you board.We have fished off shore for big game fish with numerous captains and none have been as professional, knowledgable, and proficient as Captain Skeet and his...

Spent a day with Captain Skeet and his crew deep sea fishing during our visit to Playa Flamingo. They went out of their way to ensure a successful day. The boat was well maintained and comfortable. The drinks and food were good. Caught and tagged a blue marlin. Fun day!

I spent quite a bit of time researching the options and prices when i decided to take an offshore fishing trip in costa rica. There's lots of boats that will rope you in with low prices and all kinds of fish pictures, but very few out there who understand these fish like skeet and his crew. These guys live for... More

We fished twice on the Bushwacker with Captain Skeet and his crew. It was a tough time fishing and most boats were coming back with few fish or none at all. He warned us but we wanted to fish anyway. :-) The first day was 6/12 and we fished 1/2 day inshore in the afternoon. For this outing, it was... More
