“Hooked on Tarpon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

We have visited Siesta Key for many years but never fished there. My brother joined us this year and I wanted to fish and show him a good time On June 9, 2014 we went fishing with Captain Damian and we had a blast! My brother fought a Tarpon for two hours and didn't stop talking about it for two days. I have fished for Sailfish, Snapper, Grouper and Mackerel in other areas of Florida. Sailfish are the only one that comes close to the experience of landing a Tarpon. I highly recommend this charter and captain for anyone that enjoys fishing and wants to make a memory of a lifetime. I look forward to doing it again! Thanks Captain Damian!

“Grouper Found!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

So our family had always wanted to do this-but had never arranged to until this vacation trip.
Boy are we glad we did. Captain Ron and fFirst Mate Woody were fantastic.
Out kids wanted to catch grouper and snapper-well Captain Ron delivered in a big way-he took us to a great spot out on the Gulf-and 5 minutes after dropping our lines-bingo-we had snapper in the boat. It took a little longer to get our grouper but we finally got (2) good sized ones.
Weather was perfect, fishing was incredible and the conversation we half bad either.
The best part was after our fish were cleaned-we took our bounty to the nearby Boatyard restaurant who prepared our fish just the way we wanted-what a perfect lunch!!
(Thanks guys for the suggestion!!)
Overall-a terrific experience. I highly recommend-a fanatastic day for all!!

“Excellent Siesta Key fishing charter!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

Thanks to Captain Ron and Steve. Very nice boat with an excellent crew. These guys know where the fish are. My 4-year-old son pulled in a grouper in his first cast. We had a great day on the water and came home with a cooler full of fish. Definitely give these guys a call if you are looking for a charter in Siesta Key.

“Fantastic Day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

What a day!? If you are looking for a fun day regardless of whether the fish are biting, Siesta Key Fishing Charters is the place to go. Captain Damien was an awesome guide who did everything in his power to provide my family and I with great trip. He was very accomadating to our needs and met us at our experience level. He was extremely knowledgeable of everything fishing and everything Florida; from boats to birds and fish to fun, there was nothing he couldnt do. Unfortunately the conditions weren't ideal but thanks to Damien we still reeled in some great catches. He let the ladies swim and hunt for sand dollars and even gave us the shot at catching some Tarpon. If youre in the area looking for a serious family fishing charter, you will not be dissapointed. These guys are in it solely for your satisfaction and that is very refreshing these days. I highly recommend them and I plan on coming back.
