Captain Frank,
Thanks for a great day of fishing, your obvious expertise and knowledge of the Indian River Lagoon paid off.  The redfish and snook were both great catches, but the "one that got away" whatever it was took the cake. May have been a tarpon or big snook, but the play was a real thrill! Thanks again.

Hey Captain Frank
I had a super time on the charter last week, and thanks for taking the pictures so I can prove it. After fishing off your boat and using your equipment I fear I may be disappointed the next time I go out on my own.

What a treat to be able to fit in a fishing trip while I was in Orlando with the family.  We had a good vacation, but the highlight was the charter you set up for me and my son. He hasn't stopped talking about the five fish he caught. Though he was disappointed that we didn't keep them, but thats what I-Phones are for.
Jerry Mitchell and son Jason

Thanks again for all the effort you went through to get us some fishing time. I actually learned quite a bit about sight fishing, can't wait to try out some of the techniques the next time I am in the Keys.

Hi Capt. Frank
Thanks for a great time! You definitively know your stuff when it come to fishing the Indian River. Though the weather was marginal, you found us some sheltered areas and that saved the day.

Mr. Frank
My brother and I want to thank you again for our recent fishing charter on the Indian River. Jose and I had not been fishing together since we were teenagers. It really brought back some memories...and now we have the memories and pictures from this trip.  The fishing was good, and we really appreciate your tips and patience.
Rogero and Jose

Our recent fishing charter to the flats and spoil island of the Indian River and Banana River was a delight.  I was hesitate about bringing the wife, she does like to fish, but now she is really hooked, no pun intended.  What a great day. We are thinking of booking you for our next anniversary.
