My husband and I had the pleasure of going on Captain Neil’s charter. He knew all the best places to take us ; we caught a large variety of fish. It was the highlight of our trip to FMB. Can’t wait until next year!

We couldn't have asked for a better captain he put us on the fish. The water was super low but capt. Neil found us red fish snook Jack's sea mullet hammer head shark and even a catfish to. We highly recommend this charter service
