My family and I went on an 8 hour trip with Captain James. We were told upfront that the bottom fishing for Snapper and Grouper hasn't been the best, but we still caught enough to feed 10 people. The second half of the day was spent catching King Fish and Sharks. We caught 7 sharks, including a massive 8 foot... More

Kudos to Captain Lance for working with us to get a full day trip in on short notice. We went out with Captain James and crushed it. He had us fish all day. Grouper, snapper, Mahi Mahi, at least a 10 foot tiger shark that wore us all out , and ended the day with a massive goliath grouper. This... More

Captain James took us out for an all day trip. Our primary goal was to catch our limit of grouper and then have some fun with whatever else was biting. In almost 2 hours of fishing we had already caught our limit of grouper and was quickly closing in on our snapper limit too. Once the day was over the... More

We had so much fun fishing. Thank you Captain James! This was our first time on a private charter and it's so much better than the party boats. Even our 13 year old who hates fishing loved it. Bent Charters was referred to us from another company that was booked. Caught 57 fish and kept 49. Captain James flayed the... More

We were referred to Lance by another charter service when the other's boat was out of service. Lance's son James took us out and we did really well. James is an excellent guide and we'll use him again!

This was a last minute offshore fishing trip. Everyone I called was booked. I was given Lance's number by another offshore charter. Called Lance to inquire, he said he had an opening Monday a.m. with Captain James. Lance asked that I get in touch with him Sunday night just to confirm weather etc., which was much appreciated. We chose the... More

Spent the morning fishing with Captain James and had a great time! Took about 40 mins to get to first spot. Fish weren't biting as fast as he thought they should be so he moved the boat just a bit and then it was on! My husband and I caught about 40 fish in 3 hours (released most of them).... More

Enjoyed our trip with Captain James. Very friendly and informative Captain. Dedicated fisherman he is, as his wife was 3 cm dilated that morning for their second child! Caught some fish but nothing that we could keep. At 14 miles/hr, took longer than we expected to get out and back and the diesel engine was very noisy. Would recommend ear... More
