We booked Captain Chuck for a four hour fishing trip after reading his data online. We ended up going out three times because of how wonderful the first experience was. Captain Chuck knows the region and is able to accurately assess the conditions so you will definitely catch fish. Each day he had a new plan for our fishing experience. We loved the diversity of the experiences and the fish. Captain Chuck's boat is comfortable, clean and organized and he was efficient at helping us with all elements of fishing. He taught me how to "side cast" and that the term "chart" is used instead of map when dealing with water. He is upbeat and a happy sort, even around a grumpy woman who doesn't get much sleep. First day we caught fish on approximately 66% of our casts, second day almost 100% and third day about 50% (those mangrove snappers can suck a shrimp right off the hook). Captain Chuck is safety conscious too. Highly recommended!

Capt Chuck is everything you want in a guide. Knowledgable, friendly, relaxing. It is all about the client enjoying the fishing. Took us to great places to catch a multitude of different fish and helped us become proficient at casting and landing our catch. Ask about place to have your catch turned into fish tacos, you will be amazed!

My family and I did a night tarpon trip with Chuck on June 12, and what an amazing experience! His boat and tackle are top notch and Chuck is a skilled and pleasant host. The trip would have been an epic experience without catching any fish but Chuck put us on a huge tarpon which got landed after a 40 minute battle. Thank you Chuck for the fish of a lifetime, and if we ever get back to the Keys we'll be booking more trips with Sniper Charters!

Just finished 4 half days with Chuck and it was the experience of a lifetime. He and his boat are extremely versatile, taking me from the Flamingo backcountry to the gulf stream with equal skill, ease and success. He hooked me up with 3 awesome tarpon, our limit of dolphin, some tasty mangrove snapper and many others.
As a fisherman he is 2nd to none, but he excels equally as a host and a fishing partner. He is gracious, personable, and just a lot of fun to be with. First class in every respect.

This was the best day we spent in the Keys by far! The Captain is so very kind and an incredible angler! My husband and I took our 10 year old son and Captain Chuck could have not made his day more special. We did a 3/4 day and I highly recommend it as you will have enough time to find some great spots. He has great equipment and boats and keeps everything very clean. We caught SO many fish and at the end of the day we gave some to the Captain and his wife and took the rest to Lorelei Cabana Bar and had wonderful tacos!
