Let me start off by stating I did NOT book a trip on Big Game. However, as a fellow angler, trolling offshore, the vessel I was on found a float with a rope attached floating. We were making systematic passes by it. We had made 2 passes while Big Game was within sight, so the Captain should have certainly noticed... More

Booked a trip with Capt Ariel over spring break. Unfortunately he was sick but no worries he had another captain fill in for him. Got to the boat for our afternoon trip and they let us know that the reef and edge was really rough, but there was a good bite in the bay. We got a couple drinks at... More

Once we were all loaded up we left the dock at 7:00AM stopped at Burdines to fueled up and get ice then we were on our way. It was a beautiful... More

This is the second time that I have chartered with Big Game and it was almost as good as the first. We stopped in the morning and got a piece of the hot mangrove snapper bite before moving onto mahi. Caught several decent mahi in the morning then spent hours searching for additional fish. This is why it's called fishing... More

Booked a half day. Would do it again in a heartbeat. Boat is clean, organized and comfortable. Nice equipment too. Capt. Arial works to put you on fish. Both Capt. Arial and First Mate Jamie were very patient and encouraging with first time off-shore fisherladies when they hooked the big ones. It was a great experience all around and made... More

Outstanding trip with Captain Medero and his First Mate Joel! His boat is very clean, the experience was exceptional, and their knowledge was second to none. Had a fantastic time catching mahi mahi...we literally couldn't cast the lines out fast enough! Ariel is the kind of captain that will get you results damn near every time. To top off a... More

First time fishing with Big Game & it was a great experience! My Dad & I did a split charter with another fisherman & Captain Arial & his first mate worked hard to put us on the fish. Caught many fish - including large Jacks, a Blackfin tuna for dinner, and we were able to hook up with 2 sailfish.... More

My two kids (10 and 8), their grandfather and I spent an awesome morning fishing with Capt. Ariel. I have done a lot of fishing in my life but I must say I don't know how we could have had a better experience. Capt. Ariel and his first mate Reggie were great with the kids. Very patient and enthusiastic. We... More
