“Fun day fishing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2013

Had a fun day on the water fishing with Captain Travis, Rick and Corey. It started out slowly, but Travis and the crew were able to locate fish for us. Soon enough, we were pulling dolphin in left and right. They were always positive and kept looking for schools even later in the day. I highly recommend using them.

“Best ever night tarpon/shark trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2013

The day we chose to go out with Captain Travis for our tarpon and shark trip was very windy. We decided to go anyway, and we are so glad we did. Captain Travis had us on the bite almost immediately, and we were hooked up 90 percent of the time we were out. We caught between 8 and 10 sharks, and hooked up to a giant tarpon for a big part of the last hour of our trip. We chased the tarpon, which gave us some great shows as it jumped wildly out of the water, underneath a bridge. The captain's boat handling skills were put to the test as he got us close enough to another boat to just about hand off the rod. The tarpon showed us how he was able to get so large, however, as he jumped off the hook just before we made the trade. All in all, an awesome trip and we can't wait to do it again!

Capt. Travis did great job putting us on the fish. And mate Rick was fun to work with. And it was fun chatting with Alicia & "mom" on the way back in.

Went on a 4 hour trip with Capt. Travis on Mothers day! Hooked up to some Wahoo, Black Fin Tuna, Dauphin, and a Barracuda.....It was an awesome day and he worked his but off to make it an awesome trip! He is a very cool guy, he knows where the fish are, and knows how to land them...I will definitely be heading back down for trips in the future! Thanks Travis!
