We were quickly re-scheduled and the conditions were perfect when we went with Capt Rocky and Andrew. They were courteous and extremely knowledgable. Put... More

My husband and I booked a charter with Captain Oliver and First Mate Andrew today and OMG did we have a great time! Captain Oliver led us to some prime fishing spots where we reeled in a huge assortment of fish that included snapper, spanish mackerel, snook, a trophy sized redfish (26"), bonnethead shark, and a sand shark. We've tried... More

Brought my boys (14&16) to Florida with the promise of a fishing trip. Because of the forecast conditions on the Atlantic I decided to try Tampa. I searched TA for recommendations and called Oliver. Things were setup quickly and we were good to go. That morning Brandon picked us up on time and ready to fish. The conditions were right... More

Captains Andrew and Rocky showed us a great time fishing the bay. They were very accommodating, helpful and entertaining. We caught spanish mackerel, flounder, mangrove snapper, snook and a shark that didn't quite make it to the boat before snapping the line. We had a good time, despite the sweltering heat, and would recommend this experience to others.
