We went out on a 4 hour nearshore trip. Captain John was great. He has an eagle eye and was able to point out stuff long before we could see it. We caught a lot of Snapper and wrestled with some Goliath Grouper. Kids really enjoyed it, highly recommend Double Nickel!

We waited til the last minute to try to get an inshore fishing trip crammed into a very busy spring break, but Double Nickel pulled through. Captain Jason and his assistant (regretfully I can't remember his name - not by his fault - I got a brain injury in Iraq) met us at the Turtle Beach Marina and led us... More

Capts Nick and Will were outstanding. They took the time to explain everything that would take place. While others boats were communicating on the radio of not catching fish, this crew new what to do. Nice mackeral catches and I was able to catch a large sailfish - something I've always wanted to accomplish. They made our family trip a... More

We really had fun. Some days fish just seem to jump in the boat well, that wasn't the case on Wednesday. We knew it might be a difficult day when we got to the marina and wind was blowing out of the north at 20 to 25 miles per hour. Will and Nick explained the safety features on the 42... More

We visited Sarasota from NY for the 2015 holidays and booked the Double Nickel for a fishing trip for five of us - rough seas, but the newly re-powered boat handled beautifully - when it was time to fish, we didn't need to lift a finger - Capts. Nick and Will did everything, including giving us the skinny on the... More

I read great reviews on this charter company! Made reservations 2 months in advance and my fiancé called to confirm reservation of trip 3 weeks prior. Our plane landed Saturday and we called Double Nickel Sunday and Monday (both Will and Nick). Our day to deep sea fish rolled around and everybody (family of 6) had their Dramamine, however when...

We had a great time with Double Nickel. The fishing was great. Nick and Will knew what they were doing and gave us the right amount of help and guidance. They kept it light but were serious enough to make sure we caught fish and had a good time.

We've used Will and Nick for the past 4 or 5 years. Not only do they put us on the fish they have the best stories, knowledge and skills of any captains that have taken me out. My son Collin and I love these guys. We even book our trip for the following year at the end of the current... More

Capt Nick and Will are the best captains I have chartered with. They work harder than most other captains and it shows. These guys just know how to put big fish in the boat.
