    Justin gave us one of the best fishing days ever. He was there on time and ready to go with a live well full of live bait. He took us out to the beautiful Charlotte Harber waters where I caught my first inshore slam. My son and I were beyond happy and he caught his largest Jack Crevalle. We were bringing in fish back to back. What an amazing time! Justin is a passionate advocate for the preservation of the natural habitats and it warms me that he protects these beautiful fish by making sure that we continue to let the population grow and flourish. He also educated us on how to handle the fish for very quick pictures and how to release them back in the water with minimal stress to the fish. We will definitely be booking more fishing trip with Justin.

    Justin is by far the best fishing guide we have ever used. There wasn’t a moment we weren’t reeling them in. Caught snapper, Jack’s, snook, and many others. He’s amazing with kids. My son and I had a blast. We were in need of a good adventure and Justin gave it to us. He is 100% the “Fish Whisperer”. We can’t wait to be a guest on his boat again in the future. Thank for bringing plenty of smiles to my sons face today, Justin!

    What a GREAT time!! Captain Justin is phenomenal! Our group of four caught a LOT of fish thanks to Captain Justin's expertise. HIGHLY RECOMMEND chartering with High Tide Fishing Charters, you won't be disappointed. I also want to mention that before our charter, our group read a review that gave a one star to High Tide Charters. We were curious about the incident, but with over whelming 5 stars given by others, we decided to book. So glad we did!! And so will you when you book with Captain Justin. Thanks, Justin for a wonderful time!!! We will be back!

    One of the best chartered fishing experiences of my life. Justin showed up with both live wells blacked out with bait. We were non-stop “catching” for 8 hours straight. Highly recommend for beginners wanting to learn to fish or highly skilled people looking to land a trophy.

    Had a great day with Justin on the water. He clearly knows his backyard and was able to put us on the fish. I really appreciated how he worked with my father and helped him land some big fish. If you’re looking for a guide that has a great sense of humor, has great gear and knows where the honey holes are located, this is your guy.
