After three days of looking for a place to fish before we would head out of town, we finally felt comfortable with 'A Lil' Tail' charters to accommodate all that we were looking for. Unbeknownst to us, that this would turn out to be the best part of our trip. Captain Jeremy was better than we could've hoped for with... More

We had a group of young teenagers and dads who were searching for catching fish. Wow, we caught fish! Lots of 'em. The boat ride was beautiful; we fished several spots and caught numerous fish and all different types. Highlight for me was the 120 lb Lemon SHARK! that we hooked and brought to the boat's edge for photos. Jeremy... More

We all know fishing involves an element of luck but a knowledgeable captain like Jeremy certainly increases your odds. On a single trip I caught hog fish, grouper, yellowtail and a variety I could not even identify. Best day of my vacation. - David T.(husband of Melodie)

Jeremy was recommended to me by a local and my wife and I could not have been happier that we decided to sign up for a half day charter. Jason gets it. He goes the extra mile for his customers. He LOVES fishing and it shows. Jeremy WILL put you on fish and we tore it up from the get-go.... More

I've been out fishing on "A Lil Tail Charters" with Captain Jeremy a handful of times over the past couple months. Every time out on the water, there was so much to see! Turtles, SHARKS, dolphins, manatees! And he might know a thing or two about fishing... whether we were back-country or reef fishing, he knew all the best spots.... More

My husband did a trip with Capt.Jeremy. Here is his review. If you are looking for a captain that truly loves what he does, then this is the captain you want. Capt. Jeremy goes out of his way to put you on fish. Half day trip was a lot of fun. Hope to be back soon.

Captain Jeremy was AWESOME!! My Boyfriend and I went out on a morning half day charter with him while we were in the keys. We were on fish within only about 45 minutes of being out. He allowed us to do as much of the casting and baiting as we wanted. We both caught our limit and then some. Jeremy... More

Throughly enjoyed a half day fishing with Capt Jeremy. Found a great spot in the big bend and caught a a variety of fish. Jeremy recognized shark activity and gave my wife and I the opportunity to reel in a lemon shark each after we caught a lady fish for bait. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for a charter...
