My husband and several other family members fished with the Dream Catcher Charters team a few years ago, so we set up a half day for the two of us recently. It was colder than expected and we were not prepared so Captain Tommy gave us jackets to wear on our way out and back, which made all the difference,... More

Caught a half a dozen yellow jack and a 6 ft lemon shark. Released all but one yellow jack that we enjoyed for dinner. The Captain was knowledgeable and took us to the fish!

We had an amazing time with our Captain, Hugh. He worked all day to keep us on fish. Even though we were catching smaller ones we caught plenty to keep us busy and happy.

Had the opportunity to go out with John on 1/5/16. My wife and I did not know a thing about fishing and wanted to give it a try. The entire experience was very good. Making reservations was effortless. When we arrived at the dock in the morning the owner, Steve, was there keeping an eye. Met John, our guide and... More

Our expectations may have been off (our concierge spoke of "deep sea" fishing), and we had therefore expected a somewhat bigger boat, and we had specifically asked for a boat with lavatories, so we were a bit shocked to find us on a small open boat. However, captain Hugh made the best of the situation and took us east of... More

Had a group of 7 so we got 2 boats for backcountry fishing. Have to say Captain Bryson on our boat was a very pleasant host and helpful with our Alzheimer's Father who was on board and caught the 1st fish! Caught a variety of fish from snapper to jacks to the final highlight a 7 ft lemon shark. Thanks... More
