We went out with Captain Charlene this week while vacationing at Cape San Blas. She was a great Captain, she took us for safety when a small storm rolled by and kept us on the fish the whole 4 hours. She kept all of our hooks baited up (there were 4 of us). We caught an assortment of fish: redfish, Spanish mackerel, croakers, and several fun fish to catch but you don't keep like puffer fish, crab, pin fish. We would definitely use her again!

Could not have asked for better weather in January or for a better boat captain! Captain Charlene put us on the fish despite cold temps and made every minute count. Superior knowledge of the area and the hot spots insured we were successful. If you're thinking about a charter in the Mexico Beach/Port St Joe area, there's none better.

our first visit to mexico beach we booked a simple two hour charter with capt charlene. it was a very beautiful morning with dolphin swimming near us and a fish on every twenty seconds or so. there were five of us so the capt was very busy. she put us on fish fast. my teen daughter hates fishing and wasnt real thrilled to go so we booked a two hour charter only. shes hooked now and my son is too. we plan to return in the spring and a six hour charter was requested by my kids with capt charlene. very professional and friendly.

This was our first time using About Fun Charters in Port Saint Joe, Florida. We chose Captain Charlene and she was fantastic. Fishing is a lifelong love for Charlene. She is passionate and experienced and perfect for families, people new to fishing or the very experienced fisherman. Our charter was for four hours. We arrived at 7 am and she was ready to go. She was very helpful in helping the young kids with us learn how to cast. She made the whole experience really fun and we had an exciting morning. We used live shrimp for bait and we caught blue fish, lady fish, some small sharks and to top it off we even caught a 25 pound King Mackerel. We ended our charter by traveling past a few old fishing boats. You can tell she is very well respected on the water by all the local fishermen. I would highly recommend About Fun Charters. We will make this an annual event for our family. I encourage everyone to get in touch with her, if you are in the area of Port Saint Joe. www.aboutfuncharters.com.

We loved our fishing trip with Charlene so much that we booked her again later in the week. My family was in town for vacation and I'd done some research on fishing and Charlene popped up. We chose to book with her and we were impressed! Our first trip was a Sunday morning, bright and early. We met Charlene at the Port St. Joe public boat ramp at 7 am and away we went. A quick boat ride and we started fishing. We caught at least 40 fish but only 3 of them were keepers. Flounder and Trout were the keepers but we caught several more kinds. Even if we had to let a lot go because of size (too small or too large), we still had plenty to keep and a ton of fun. My husband had a fun battle with a 33 inch Redfish. The trip was 4 hours and we fished in three different locations.

As the week went on, we wanted to head out again so we gave Charlene a call and hit the water that Friday. That time we caught 5 keepers including Spanish Mackerel, Flounder, and Trout. Again, lots that were too small but it's a lot of fun to catch and release as well! This time my dad caught a 30 inch Redfish and really enjoyed reeling him in.

Thanks, Charlene!! We really enjoyed our trips!
