    We had the BEST time with Captain George!!! He’s so knowledgeable and VERY patient with newbies to fishing. He’s lots of fun and makes the day so enjoyable. We caught 6 different types of fish and got to feed the pelicans when we docked. I highly recommend booking with the fish hunter! A day you won’t forget!!

    “Passionate and Professional” Two words I’d use to describe Captain George. I’ve been on several fishing charters with him over the last few years and believe he’s one of the best in the business! He’s an extremely knowledgeable and well seasoned fishing guide. I can’t imagine anyone working harder to keep you consistently on fish throughout the day. He’s polite, respectful and has a great personality that shines from the minute you step on his boat to the moment your trip is done. It’s evident Capt George has a true passion for fishing. However, what impresses me most is his patience and ability to guide people through hooking and landing fish. Being from MN, I consider myself a good walleye fisherman, but there’s a learning curve involved in catching snook, sheepshead and reds. I’m confident he could catch fish all day long, but takes a special talent to teach someone with less experience to catch them. I’ve seen him do it with everyone from my 10 year old son to my 74 year old mother! Capt George is a true professional I’d highly recommend. I look forward to many more trips in the future!

    Wow, just wow, what a fabulous day. We caught fish within 5 minutes at the first 4 places we stopped. Captain George doesn’t just know the best places to scope out, he is so FUN, helpful and knowledgeable. Best day of our trip. We will book him again next year. We had our college age daughter with us and she had a blast. We did book Cap George 13 years ago when our kids were small and he was AMAZING with children then and so glad we found him for our second trip to Tampa. Thank you so much George - just the best day and value!

    Here on vacation from South Carolina, Captin George was highly recommended to us. We took the "pair of Jacks" (Jax and Jazzi) on a fishing this week with Captin George. They love fishing as much as we do. We caught a nice variety from Snook, Reds, Mango and thankfully no sharks. We have been on several fishing trips around FL and he was by far the most professional and educational. We gained a wealth of knowledge to use in our future fishing endeavors. Jax kissed the fish and Jazzi took a dip!! Great Times! Highly Recommended!!!
