Folklure Charters can provide an exciting and unique fishing experience, thanks to the various techniques used by Captain Frank. Trolling is his go-to option for catching fish, as it gives an adrenaline rush when a large fish is hooked. Bottom fishing and jigging are the way to go for those looking to get down deep into the ocean. These methods involve bouncing jigs off of reefs or wrecks in order to lure unsuspecting fish. It’s a vigorous technique involving patience and skill, but it pays off with some of the most exciting catches of the day.

    Fishing with Captain Frank was excellent! The conversation combined with tons of great fishing made for one of the best days of our trip. We are so glad we went with Captain Frank and we'd gladly go with him again on another successful fishing adventure. We ended up catching around 20 Yellowtail Snappers and a Mahi Mahi. I even reeled in a 6 ft Lemon Shark! Captain Frank was also top notch in terms of comfort on the adventure. He brought water bottles and made sure we all felt safe, comfortable, and were not getting sick. He was accommodating to keep us in calmer waters when we asked to avoid not feeling well. This trip was outstanding and I'd highly recommend it!

    Fished with Frank on 2/4/22. Weren’t sure we’d be able to get out due to rough seas but Frank found us a great spot! Favorite catch of the day was a nurse shark - so cool! We’re so happy we booked with folklure and will definitely be back. If you’re looking for a family-run company and a great time, Frank is your guy. We drove from key west to meet him. About a 34 minute drive (northbound). Easy to find and free all day parking to leave your car. Highly recommend.

    Captain Frank was wonderful on our fishing trip this week! He was great with our 8 and 9 year old kids and provided a fishing trip to remember!! The kids are still talking about it! He kept the kids entertained and we were continually catching fish! Not all the fish were keepers but the kids did not care! He went above and beyond for our trip! I would highly recommend him especially if you have kiddos!

    Captain Frank was a pleasure to fish with. He put us right on the fish. He’s funny and very knowledgeable. We loaded up on mahi and then did a couple deep drops for grouper. Overall it was a great day and everyone on board was happy. We will definitely be booking with him again in the future.
