Once again Paul and the Reef Runner provided a great day on the water! Several King Mackerel and a SAIL (released of course) and the topping was his securing a reservation for us at Chef Michael's to prepare out catch! It just doesn't get any better than that!

Great fishing charter out of Whale Harbor in Islamorada. Captain Paul and crew work hard and we now have a good supply of tuna sashimi.

Awesome experience with this captain. Our group caught 26 Mahi as well as some other sea life. Captain Paul, this guy knows what he's doing. Follow him on FB, I notice that he updates on there of his daily catches. Deckhand was helpful. Couldn't ask for a better charter! This guy will guarantee a great catch of the day.

Went fishing yesterday with Captian Paul and Dave. Had a great time and caught some nice dolphin and other fish. Brought our catch to Michaels for dinner. Yum! Very enjoyable day! Thanks

We took an offshore trip with Captain Paul and had a great time fishing. We didn't have a lot of luck tuna fishing, but crushed the Mahi all morning. All said and done we boated 28 Mahi (1 slammer bull / 1 slammer cow) and 1 Blackfin Tuna. Prepare yourself for a fiercely frantic time once the Mahi show up,... More

We went out with these guys yesterday. They suggested 11 am departure which didn't bode so well for catching fish. My eight year old did catch a small mahi mahi though in the first five minutes we were stopped and was thrilled. I didn't feel great bobbing around waiting for anything else to bite so we probably cut the trip... More

This was a great experience for my family. I have a 4 year old, 6 year old, 10 year old, and 17 year old. I chartered a boat last week to take the entire family out and everyone had the opportunity to catch some mahi mahi. My son even caught a Bonita. The captain and first mate were very friendly...
