Michele Hilly My son and I had an awesome afternoon with Captain Garrett! He always made sure we had a rod in hand and if he hooked one passed it off to me to catch.
Jim Sullenberger Captain Matt was great, he's very personable and super willing to educate you on fishing. His gear is top-notch and he works his butt off to get you on fish.
Captain Matt took our crew of 2 adults, 2 teenagers and 2 pre-teens out for the day. He found a perfect spot inshore where we caught a ton of fish and watched the dolphins swim around us.
Welly Jul Extremely professional and fun, Captain Matt and crew execute the best fishing experience! Fred Schmidt Catfish CHARTERS Fantastic Experience.
My son and I went on a six-hour charter with Captain Matt (the owner) . Mark Pfeiffer Fishing with captain Matt was an awesome time.
He put us on fish with ease and it was a super chill environment. The only thing I could possibly complain about is that it took a full 30 seconds to catch our first fish....... After spending the morning with Captain Pat I feel the next time I fish with him he can improve on that time.
I feel I am an experienced fisherman that can catch fish anywhere, but there is a reason Captain Pat is a professional. The entire staff was professional and courteous, the equipment was top of the line and the overall experience was worth every dollar spent.
This will go down as the absolute best family fishing trip we have ever had.... It was so full of action that my son and I had the chance to catch two Shook at the same time creating the opportunity for us to take a father son picture and safely release both beautiful fish. An awesome time catching, great company with a personable and knowledgeable guide.
Fishing was not on the agenda, but we figured we'd splurge on a little private charter. Captain Matt's intimate knowledge of the local waters was very evident as it did not take him long to put us on the fish.
We caught plenty of fish, Matt cleaned them soon as we docked, and enjoyed an awesome fish dinner right at the local restaurant on the dock. Michael Onshore Captain Matt was great.
Left 15 minutes before scheduled time, caught plenty of fish (my wife schooled me, hooking up way more often than I did). Thanks for the good time, will be back to schedule a corporate event soon.
Robert Woolworth Captain Garrett was great during our inshore half day fishing trip! I should also mention a cold front came in the night before, so we didn’t have high expectations, however we started hooking up trout within a few minutes of stopping at our first spot.
Gail Tucker We had the most amazing day fishing with Captain Matt! There was excitement, tons of laughs, total moments of awe with the nature of the ocean.
Robert Sutherland Our group was in town for business and the shook fishing trip was a great way to cap it off. Everyone had a great experience and plan to do this again next time we are in town for work.
Roy Ewell Captain Matt was awesome, he was informative on all the questions we had prior and during our adventure. He's a very people person talks like he's known you for a long time, not just another boring captain we have encountered in the past.
Heather Wetland We had captain Garret (who I just realized was cool enough to let me call him Gary ? He knew great fishing spots and was extremely knowledgeable.
Joshua Campbell Captain Matt and team are top-notch. We had so much fun catching our limit of some beautiful mackerel and my grandson even caught a shark.
I had so much fun going inshore and offshore fishing with Catfish during my stay in St. Petersburg. Matt and crew are very knowledgeable, and they provided a safe and fun experience.
It was my first time in St. Petersburg, and it was nice to learn about the town and the different types of fish that inhabit the waters there. Mastiff Rescue of FL We highly recommend Yacht fish Fishing Charters.
Captain Matt Douglas made our day a win of epic proportions, we couldn't have asked for any better. Even though the bite was slow, he was knowledgeable with the current area and was able to find a spot to get us a couple of keepers.
We caught trout, snapper, mackerel, catfish, and we even caught 2 sharks!! Capt Pat cleaned and gutted our fish and recommended Frescoes (walking distance from the charter) to cook our fish for us; which was a delicious and affordable choice.
Matthew Marsh Went out with Garrett and Patrick and had an amazing time. We got a couple sharks, one about 100 lbs and a great fight... we also got Mackerel, Snapper, Trout and more on some markers and flats.
Great experience for the family and delicious meal after at the guys recommended restaurant that cooked our catch perfectly! We went out with Captain Garrett McCall out of St. Pete FL and had a great time.
Our two sons (8 and 9) caught lots of fish and learned a ton about the bay. We also caught a variety of other fish, including but not limited to Gag Grouper, Cobra, Black Fin Tuna, and Red Grouper.
Captain Matt and his mate Avon were spot on with everything the whole day, they had every angle covered. The boat (a 33' Invincible) and all the equipment were in immaculate condition and noticeably very well maintained.
Seeing that I'm fairly new to deep sea fishing, I had a lot of questions to ask throughout the day as I tried to soak in as much knowledge as possible (imagine Macaulay Colin in Home Alone). After our jam-packed day of fishing, we had the pleasure of going over to Frescoes which is within walking distance of Catfish's Slip.
While we were enjoying some Snapper and Grouper that we caught, which was cooked to perfection by the Frescoes kitchen, Catfish cleaned and bagged all our fish for us to fill our freezers with. They even took the time to separate the varieties for us which made it easy dividing it all up.
Thank you VERY much Captain Matt & Avon, you guys rock!read more Captain Matt Douglas is very professional, knowledgeable, courteous and always knows where to find fish.
If you want a full day of fishing, fun and sun don't even think about booking with anybody else. We can't even say enough to describe how amazing of a day we had offshore catching every (fish) you could even imagine left and right.
Our guides Matt and Scotty were beyond helpful and determined to make sure we had a kick ass day out there. Our hooks were tended to before we even had them out of the water if they didn't have a stud of a fish on them.
I am a FL Native, but Matt taught me in 4 hours than I thought I knew for 40 years! Super patient w/all my questions, and then we caught several snooks within the trip.
Brian T I am a local fisherman and went out with Yacht fish this past Sunday. We had a heck of a day and caught Mackerel, Shook and a Monster Redfish (39 inches).
Teresa Mandela Another phenomenal fishing trip with Captain Matt. Conscientious kind of Cap Makes everyone feels comfortable and confident.
Capt Garrett had all the bait, equipment and knowledge to make this a great trip! Danny Wiz January 10, 2018, was my second time out with Captain Matt and Garrett of Yacht fish.
They work hard to get you on the fish, and it’s like a day on the water with a couple of your close friends. Trout, Lady fish and Sleepyhead were biting all afternoon long.
Being down in Tampa on business from Michigan in January, this was a well needed afternoon on the water in the sun and 75 degrees. Phil Kaczyski Captain Patrick showed us a great time.
Terri Matheson We had an amazing time today fishing with Captain Garrett! We caught red snapper, trout and sleepyhead to take home and a bunch of other fish that was fun to catch.
Captain Matt booked my excursion and followed up with me every step of the way. Rick Dallas Rosa As an ex- charter boat owner and operator from Brooke Western Australia, I expect a lot.
We’ll I was pleasantly surprised that was not the case with Captain Matt and his crew. Their level of local knowledge and experience was comforting and ensured me I’d made a right decision when I chose to go with Yacht Fish Charters.
I want to thank captain Matt and Garrett for their great service! We had three kids with us, and they were very attentive to them yet still allowed them to do as much as possible for the full experience.
He was patient with myself as a new fisherman, energetic, and very knowledgeable about his fishing spots! My wife, son, and I were impressed with his friendliness, ability to take us to several very active fishing spots, and his real sense of customer service.
They didn't use foul language, drink, or in any other way act as “old fishermen” may tend to be regarded. In about 3 hours my father-in-law and I caught about 50 snooks, 2 mangrove snappers, and 3 nice reds.
In under 2 hours, with my daughter (10) and I we caught 4 snapper, 5 mackerel, a pin fish, and 14 sharks! Captain Matt did an standing job taking us to the right areas, and make every step of the day easy and fun.
Matt and Garrett are great guys and know their hometown waters beyond expectations. Sean her Matt did an awesome job putting us on fish.
The boat had a really smooth ride and both Captain and Mate Garrett were very professional and fun to fish with. Matt Douglas always puts us on the fish every time with the best equipment and highest quality boats and is one of the most professional and prepared charter captains in the business today.
Douglas for either inshore, Tarpon, or offshore fishing for any species you prefer to target if you want to catch 'em.read more Tom Lair Been fortunate enough to charter Matt Douglas at Yacht fish on several occasions.
Colleen-dave farmer My nephew and his fiancé came down for a long weekend and had booked fishing trip with Captain Matt. We had a fabulous time caught shook and trout, tried for tarpon but no luck.
Captain Matt and his mate Garret were so helpful and attentive to our experience. Daniel Winiowski Jr First time ever fishing with Yacht fish this past Saturday and it was a day to remember catching my first Tarpon.
They worked hard to try and find the fish in different locations and with different bait. Patience paid off as I landed my first ever Tarpon on one of the most beautiful days I have ever had on the water.
Richard Golembeski went out with Matt on 5/23/2017. The weather did not look to good, waves in the 6ft. Tarpon, witch is what we came for. This trip ended up great, when it seems to start off rough, Matt.
Matt has great patience, the fire extinguisher went off, wife's fishing line in trolling motor and Captain Matt didn't bat an eye, just kept right on guiding. Michelle Harold My friend Robin and I were fortunate to spend a glorious morning in the bay with Matt and Garrett.
Matt put us on fish quickly, and we did catch some nice looking king fish. Jim Thompson Capt Matt is amazing inshore as well as going offshore.
Jenna lee Malays I have been on a private charter before, but Yacht fish is hands down the BEST ! I went offshore for the first time with Captain Matt and Garrett few weeks ago with my daughter.
