Great boat, great gear, great guide. We keep coming back to fish with Andrew because he'll work hard so you get the fishing experience you came to the Keys for. He has a backup "plan B" and "plan C" so you can have a successful day. Always a new experience; never a bad trip. Whether out on the reef or... More

Capt. Tippler took my boys and I fishing on Saturday and we had a great trip. He loaded up the boat with a few hundred live bait fish he caught with his net and we spent the day catching one fish after another. He also hooked us up on several sharks (bull, black tip, and nurse shark). I have been... More

Look no further than Andrew Tipplers' "Last Cast Charters". Andrew has extensive knowledge of Keys fishing areas and tactics. He's very professional in his approach and he's a really nice guy. Enjoy, I did and will again.

Andrew is a great guide who not only really knows his stuff but teaches you at the same time. Took my dad (78 this year)on a 2 day trip that he has wanted to do his whole life, one for tarpon and one for dolphin and wreck fishing. Andrew was great to be with and really know his stuff and... More

Andy is a great guide! Andy took four of us on his boot to the flats for a half day and we caught fish throughout the trip. We caught ladyfish, bonefish, sharks, and more. I knew it would be a good trip when we first stopped to fish and a fish was caught on the first cast. Clean boat and... More

I've fished with Andy in the backcountry numerous times. Sometimes just my wife and I, sometimes with some subset of my kids. He always does a great job exploring what we want to do and figuring out the best way to do that. We've caught tarpon, permit, jacks, sharks, ladyfish, sea trout, snapper. He has endless patience for questions and... More

I went down for a solo trip with Captain Andrew during tarpon season. After eight tarpon or so, I could barely feel my arms! I've never had a better day on the water and won't ever fish with anyone else when I make it down to the Keys!
