Have been out on this boat 4 times. 3 great trips and 1 we just weren't lucky. No license, gear, or experience needed. The guide is very knowledgeable and easy going which makes it a pleasure. Recommended

Thank Danon M

First of all, booking the trip was a breeze! We were in town for a business trip and only had one afternoon open. I called Captain O the week prior and he was able to schedule us for that day!!

Being on multiple fishing charters before, I wasn't expecting to be in the action as much as Captain Orly allowed! It was incredible! It truly was an exhilarating experience being able to pull up a King Fish by myself with only his guidance of where I need to be in the boat. Also, his knowledge and patience of teaching us techniques, to all my bizarre questions about the fish we were catching, lures, lines and hooks he is using.

As for Captain O himself, you can't find a more professional, personable, knowledgeable fishing guide. Right off the bat we were talking like we've known each other for years! Hands down the best fishing charter I've been on. I highly recommend Nomad Fishing to anyone who is considering a fishing trip in South Florida. I'm already planning my next fishing expedition down there!

Thank you again Captain for the amazing experience!

Let me just say, this was the highlight of our entire trip to south Florida! If you're considering charter fishing, I would highly recommend it with Nomad Fishing! I appreciate that Captain O is an owner-operator. He was the one who answered when I called to book our trip, and he was the one on the boat with us. Very nice, professional, and knowledgeable - he was fun to chat with - and that's important when you're out on the ocean with a guy for 6 hours! The marina was easy to get to, well cared for, and parking was free. As for the fishing - amazing! So much more than we had expected! We started out doing a little bait fishing, which we could've done that for the morning and been fine! It was a fun way to get started and would've been perfect especially for kids. Then we headed out to look for Mahi Mahi. It didn't take long with our knowledgeable captain to find a huge school of them. In about an hour and a half, my husband and I pulled in over 30 'dolphin' as they call them. I'm not a very strong 'fisherwoman', but these Mahi were perfect for me to be able to catch and reel in. When the school had moved on, we headed in to do some reef fishing, which was a nice change of pace. When we were finished, Captain O was so generous to clean and fillet a couple of our Mahi, put them on ice, and directed us to a restaurant only a few blocks from his marina that would cook our catch for us. This was a huge unexpected bonus that we were able to eat our freshly caught fish! And they were delicious! Overall, this was an experience of a lifetime - and next time we're in south Florida, we'll definitely be giving Captain O a call again!

We went out for a morning of reef fishing and caught a bunch of tasty yellowtail snapper. Lots of fun and we can't wait to do it again.
