“Amazing Experience”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Just came back from 5 days in KW. We came across Captain Mike and Justin and decided to go night fishing for shark and 3/4 day trip the following day. Both trips were fantastic! We caught 6 sharks (lemon tail and black tip). On the day trip we hooked numerous dolphins and 1 trophy 50# dolphin fish. This was our first time deep sea fishing, and it wont be our last. Captain Mike and Justin were great guys, great teachers, very patient, hard working, and very excited when we hauled in that big one. These guys are the best in Key West. Highly recommended, you wont be disappointed.

“Best Trip Ever”
Reviewed 8 May 2014 via mobile

We have been out with Discretion the last three years and it has been nothing but amazing. We hooked on to a bull dolphin, a cow dolphin and tuna. Captain Mike and Justin do an awesome job and we are definitely going back next year.

“Best Fishing Ever!”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

Just came back from 4 days in KW - 2 of which were spent on Discretion. 2 AWESOME days of fishing -- first day we had amberjack, blackfin tuna and a sailfish plus dozens of bonitas. Our second day brought a large sailfish, more blackfin tuna, more bonitas and lots of laughs! These guys are the best - we'll never fish with anyone else!. We fished with Discretion back at New Years & fishing was the reason for our Easter weekend trip. Love these guys! Thanks, Capt Mike & Mates Justin & Josh...looking forward to seeing you all soon (maybe sneaking in a marlin trip this summer?)

“"Once in a lifetime Amazing "”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

My first time fishing off shore was very exciting thanks to Captain Mike , Mate Justin and Josh! They were very knowledgable and showed me how to catch a nice size Tuna without any injuries to myself or the boat! Everyone was amazed at the dock when we came in with 10 large Tuna (not counting fish we let go) they thought we were out all day but we actually went for only 3 hours. Highly recommend fishing with this Captain and Crew! We plan on using the Discretion only for our next fishing trip to the keys!

I have been out with Discretion several times and they never disappoint. However, this last trip was incredible! When we left the dock in the morning the goal of the day was to find sailfish, and they did just that. After we landed two nice SAILS, Captain Mike asked us if we wanted to change things up and go for some other species. Justin changed up the entire boat and in no time we landed a 20lb MAHI. Next came three fat BLACKFIN TUNA. We thought about heading in, super happy with our day. But with true quintessential fisherman reasoning, Mike and Justin insisted on 'just one more pass...' The last fish of the day was an awesome WAHOO right at sunset! What are the odds?!?!? My first sailfish, and an epic pelagic GRAND SLAM!!! This was truly the trip of a lifetime. Even in the moments between catching fish, it was really cool just talking to Mike and Justin. Their love for what they do is apparent, and really adds to being out on the water with them. I don't know who was more excited about my grand slam... Can't wait to go out with them again. We have a saying in Key West, 'You can go fishing with anyone. If you want to go catching, go with Discretion!'
