Captain John is awesome. I hired him to take my son and myself fishing. He was on the fish right away. Properly equipped with excellent knowledge and being very familiar with the waters he will have you on the fish in no time. Boat is fast and gets you where you have to go in no time. Definitely a great captain and great boat

Captain John was terrific! We booked a half-day trip to a local sandbar. I had last-minute guests visiting (when all the beaches were closed), and I was scrambling to find a way to entertain them and show them the coast. I called a bunch of charters, and Rock n Reel sympathized and went out of their way to find someone who could accommodate us. Ultimately, Captain John worked with our schedule and was wonderful. He was very friendly and willing to teach our group about the coast/area. Great trip!

A fabulous time with John. A patient instructor, knows techniques, where to find fish, & how to catch them. Cleaned our catch & gave us tips to prepare the filets that was spot on. A great day had by beginners & seasoned fishermen alike.

This was the best fishing trip I’ve ever had. Captain John put us on fish all day long. We caught plenty of flounder, reds, trout and even a few snook (only captain I’ve had around here that could do that). He was punctual and even cleaned a few fish for me once we got back to the dock.

Just finished up a great trip with John. Booking was easy and he was prompt and ready to go when he got there. I caught numbers of fish and had many more bites than I expected. I think in total I caught 5 or 6 different species of fish. I’ve already booked a return trip when I’m back in town for work. I’d highly recommend John’s service. Great attitude, professional, easy conversation and a good time. You won’t be disappointed.
