    Birthday trip for 13 year old grandson. Huge success-Capt Phil and his son made sure we caught lots of fish and had fun. Grandson declared the four hour trip a big success (he loved learning about the different fish and hauled in nearly 20 himself). Highly recommend Phil! Great experience.

    I was just looking to book Captain Phil again and noticed that I forgot to leave a review from last time my Dad and I booked with him. Captain Phil was absolutely awesome. There wasn't a moment he didn't have a rod that was ready to go in our hand. He knew all the spots to move to when the fish weren't hitting. My dad and I had such a great time and will be booking him again! Hoping he's available!

    Our 16 year old wanted a fishing charter for his birthday gift and Capt Phil did NOT disappoint! They had a great day on the water and my son caught some PBs, a shark and his first ever Bonita. I would highly recommend Sliprock to people of all ages as Capt Phil’s passion for fishing is contagious, no matter how old you are! Thank you for the fantastic memories!

    We chartered with Captain Phil in March 2024 and could not have had a better experience. We had a group of 6 go out for a half day and all 6 of us caught 10 or more fish (Spanish Mackerel, Cobia, Grouper, Trout). At times, it was comical how quickly we would get a fish on the line. In addition, Phil was a great captain and guide and we all enjoyed our time spent on the boat. If you are ever in the Clearwater area I highly suggest Captain Phil!

    We had a fun and unforgettable 4-hr experience with Captain Phil. He was energetic and very passionate about meeting our goal of catching fish. We caught over eight different species of fishes, and one of those species was a sailfish which is a rare occurrence. We are extremely satisfied with the outcome of our fishing trip. I would highly recommend Sliprock if you are in need of a fishing charter. I look forward to booking with Sliprock again in the future.
