“September fishing trip”
Review of Kingbird Charters

Kingbird Charters
Reviewed 24 September 2013

Had a Wednesday reservation to fish with Craig at Kingbird charters, unfortunately my nephew who was suppose to arrive on Tuesday pm was not going to be able to be there till late Wednesday am ( Thanks to Delta airlines). Called Craig and asked if there was any way we could go later in the week. He was able to take us out on Friday and was great about switching it up.
He was in the midst of buying a new boat but was able to take us out with another charter captain (Michelle) that he is friends with. We were staying at the Almond Tree inn on Truman and didn't have a rental car but Craig was able to come and pick us up as well as drop us off afterwards.
The fishing was great, kept us in the action on the reef with from what I understand were some really big yellow tails.Had a great time fighting a bunch of fish and getting busted on by each other and Capt. Michelle when we would lose a fish. Was also pretty cool when a few sharks showed up to try and grab some of the fish we were reeling in, they got a few but we also hooked and fought a few of them which was a lot of fun.Finished up fishing on a wreck which was a little slower action but all different species of fish, something cool about fighting a fish and not know what its going to be till its to the boat.
Great day on the water with a captain that knows how to make it fun and get you in the action. Feels a lot like going out fishing with a buddy. Hope to get out again with Capt. Craig on our next visit.

THANK YOU CAPT CRAIG! We spent both days during mini season with Capt Craig. He was able to put us on the bugs and keep us away from the craziness that can be mini season. We even enjoy some spearfishing after lobstering! I would highly recommend Kingbird Charters and plan on going out again next season. Tight lines!

My 12 yr old son and I had a great time with Capt. Dock and Lenny. We caught some Mahi, barracuda, bonita and we caught a nice 6 ft. shark. The guys were a lot of fun to fish with and I highly recommend them.

We have fished with Craig before and wanted to do it again since we finally ate through our catch from the last time out. The day could have been a mess weather wise but Craig set us up between some squall areas that stayed put for our time on the water. Craig and his mate Lenny put us on fish right away. We would have caught even more Yellowtails but a Tiger shark that we eventually sighted was helping himself to some of our catch as we reeled them in. Even with that, we brought home over thirty really nice fish. One looked so good Craig cleaned it whole and suggested we take it to one of our favorite restaurants and have it fried that way. We did, and it was a lot of fun with several people wanting to know what we'd ordered off the menu to get a whole fried fish like that.Counting down the time until the next trip.

This was my wife and my second time fishing with CAPT Craig and Kingbird Charters. Made a call a couple of weeks before our trip and we were all set. Craig never books 2 half days back to back so you never have to worry about running back to the dock...especially if you are in the middle of catching fish every time your line is in the water.
Once we got on the water, it was game on! We had FISH ON with in minutes of Craig getting lines in and it didn't let up for a couple of hours. We lost count of how many times we had fish on both lines!! Caught my first dolphin ...and my second too! After we checked that block, Craig switched things up for the last hour and we hauled in a couple of barricuda!
Craig filleted our Mahi and we had plenty of fresh fish for the rest of our stay.
We will be back!!!
