Been going to the Keys for years and this year the kids were ready to fish and enjoy it. Went out with Captain Jason personally and had a great day. He was very patient and educational. It was the highlight of our family vacation. I would recommend Best Bet Sportfishing to anyone who has a family or anyone who is... More

My husband and I went out with Jason and Wayne this past Tuesday. The weather was overcast and windy, but that didn't stop us from going. We went out about 3-4 miles off the coast. The waves were rolling but it was manageable. Jason and Wayne were amazing! They found us a spot to fish. We saw angelfish and parrotfish... More

My nephews and I went out with Best Bet Sportfishing this last weekend and had a great time. The seas were challenging but the captain managed the boat with great skill to minimize a rough ride. They were very patient with my nephews that had never been on a boat, much less deep sea fishing. They worked non stop throughout... More

Went out with Captain Jason and his two well skilled mates ( AJ and Bill ) last Saturday for what was the best time I have had on any fishing charter. We fished for Mahi and were successful in getting into several schools of nice fish. In between Mahi fishing we also caught Grouper and other bottom fish. Jason's knowledge... More

We had a great couple of days - boated tons of Dolphin, Tuna & Snapper. These guys are the best charter service in the middle keys - very flexible & accommodating!! You will not regret... More

I just had the most incredible 3 days of fishing I have ever done! I recently went on a fishing trip to Marathon/key Colony beach with 2 buddies of mine. Was I impressed. Captain Jason put us on Dolphin, Blackfin Tuna, Snowy Grouper, Rose Grouper, and and Awesome Swordfish! This was my first swordfish. Capt. Jason and his mate talked... More

Local knowledge at its best. If you want to catch fish, this is your "Best Bet". Always a good time. Very professional.

A group of us went out for a 3/4 day of fishing in December. Not one of the best months to fish, but we did pretty well. Jason and Wayne were professional and helpful. Considering 1/2 of us did not have a clue what we were doing. We caught a variety of fish and had an enjoyable time. I would... More
