We fished with Captain Jim and Bobby. We have chartered out of Naples/Marco in the past and would rate the Captain and crew as a step above. As a licensed captain and a former fishing guide, I am very picky. Although I hire guides frequently when I travel there are relatively few whom I would fish with again, much less... More

Three of us went out with Capt Joe and 1st Mate Matt. Capt Joe seemed to know exactly where to go. We went out about 25 miles to his first spot. He baited my hook and threw it in and before he could finish baiting the 2nd guys hook I had already caught a fish! We caught fish after fish... More

I called A & B Fishing Charters this morning and after talking with the gentleman about booking a charter in April, I got an uneasy feeling about him. He was not professional and when I spoke to my husband tonight and told him I didn't like his attitude, he told me to cancel it. So I called him to cancel... More

After driving over an hour to arrive at the designated spot at 7:15am, we were surprised to learn that the boat that we had chartered for a day of fishing had just left the marina with a larger party. Obviously the decision was made to leave us stranded and make more money with a larger group. (I have seen this... More

Last year I gave this charter service a five star review. This year one star. Our group knows we cannot control the weather and we were not afraid of getting wet (which we did in spades) but the capitan should have known and advised us that the waves would be wicked. They were big time. We did give it a... More

This was our 4th or 5th trip with A&B and we always have a great trip. Jerry and Jim took great care of us. Captain Allen's boat have covered boats which offers a great place to rest (or take a nap) on the ride in. We were continuously catching fish. We will return again next year

We had so much fun with captain Craig and 1st mate Austin! We did the 1/2 day charter and caught lots of snapper. We caught a few grouper but they were under the limit so it was photo ops only then back to the sea. We even caught a pelican! Those boogers were bold hanging out right by the boat.... More

Captain Bobby did a great job putting us on some good fish - king mackerel, big grouper and red snapper. We would definately book them again.

I made reservations for 4, 2 weeks in advance for AB charters. We were with them once before and had a good time. This time we arrived (4 of us), and he apologized and said he could not go out with only 4 people. Obviously at 6:30 in the morning this was not welcome news! I asked him why he... More
