Capt Fred is the BEST
“Of all the Florida guides I’ve fished with, Capt Fred is easily the best in terms of knowledge of the fishery, teaching you how to fish, and being a lot of fun to fish with. I have been lucky enough to fish all over North America for everything from Crappies to Mako Shark. I can honestly say I can’t recall a better fishing experience than I have had on his boat.”

The best fishing guide ever
“I have charted fishing guides in 3 different countries on countless occasions. Captain Fred guided my 11 year old daughter and myself on a day when a southerly wind came up and no one else was catching fish. The boat and gear was first rate and this was by far the best charter. Many thanks Frenchy.”

We had a BLAST catching fish with Capt Fred!!
“According to the solunar calendar the fishing was going to be bad. NOT on Capt. Fred’s boat. We caught fish one after another, so many we lost count. Also some of the biggest fish I have ever caught. He knows where the fish are and how to catch them. Now that we have found the best fishing guide in Florida we won’t book with anyone else. Thanks for a great time!”

Awesome day of catching HUGE Redfish.
“Captain Fred knew right where to go. Everything happened just as he said. My kids will never forget this awesome trip. Can’t wait to come back.”

Too big to keep!
“Being Floridians we love to catch fish for dinner. So Capt. Fred takes us to Ponce Inlet and the Indian River and we catch the largest Redfish of our lives. Capt. Fred is a world traveled professional fisherman. If there are fish to catch, he will find them. Thanks again Capt. Fred. We had a GREAT time!”
