Captain John is personable & professional. He has a sense of humor and knows where & how to fish. Our family of five, ages 9 thru 68, had a blast. We caught 9 large King Mackrels in a 4-hour trip. Boat was clean, safe, up to date with plenty of room including a bathroom. We will refer our friends to John & his wife Jeanne for a trip like ours.

My dad and I went out today with Capt John! He is great! The experience was excellent. We went out for a half day about 15 miles offshore in his boat 86 Proof. The boat is in great condition. It's clean, comfortable, air conditioned, shade and has restrooms on board. He provided all gear and bait needed and allowed us to put water and snacks in his cooler. We left the dock at 6 am which was great because we had great weather and cooler temps. Capt John was funny, down to earth, and made the experience fun! We caught King fish, barracuda, and Spanish mackerel. When we got finished, they even filleted the fish for us right then and there. I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting half day, 3/4 day or full day fishing charters in Clearwater!

Although John T. keeps an almost immaculate boat with top flight gear the real measure of success is did you catch fish!!!! Well it's been a number of years since I was out on both the 86 and 100 Proof boats but I fish all over the Americas and I can truly say , you we caught what we went after each time. One trip I brought my son, brother-in-law and fellow worker and we decided to target amberjack. Well, Captain J. took us out to the 80-90 foot mark and we probably hit maybe 3-4 spots and after about 3 hours, all 4 of us were exhausted from the non-stop action. The ajacks ran anywhere from 20 to 40 lbs. and were brutes. Another charter in the Spring we targeted kings which were migrating back north along the beaches. We trolled the crab pot lines and hit the jackpot including several smokers! Large fish that take line and practically spool you. These are just several examples of the quality of the trips. The Captain and mate on these boats are true professionals who always give you a great day on the water. After writing this review I need to book a trip to go grouper digging and snapper fishing.

Captain John review From beginning to end this was a great trip and well worth the time and money. We have never really fished before so we weren't sure what to expect or do. Captain John keeps an immaculate boat, made us feel safe, instructed us on what to do and knows where to find the good fish. He was very knowledgeable and also very enjoyable to be with, teasing and joking with our boys often. We caught 9 barracuda and 2 yellow tail jacks. To top it off Captain John filleted some of our catch for us so we could eat it for lunch! We took it to Crabby Bill's right at the end if the pier who fried half and blackened the other half--so delicious!!! Captain John's wife, Jean, met us at the dock to help clean up and added a pleasant end to a fantastic day! When we come back we will definitely call on Captain John again! Thanks for a wonderful experience.
