We had a great morning of fishing with Captain Jack. We caught lots of fish, and even happened to see manatees, dolphins, and saw an osprey catch a fish too. I'd highly recommend a charter with Captain Jack.

Captain Jack is the best. He knows the area and where to catch fish. We loved catching the variety of fish the Florida has to offer. Captain Jack sure made an impression on my family!
