Captain Gary it was a pleasure meeting you today. I wanted you to know that Captain Brian and First Mate Mike were absolutely a pleasure today. We had a nice trip out, weather was perfect, and my nephews had a memory of a lifetime that they will never forget. First time down to visit and your crew made it wonderful. I live here and you can count on me visiting again, myself and with family and friends in the future. Great job and Kudos to your business and staff.

Just wanted to share with everyone what a great time we had last week out on the Eddy Lee. We were there on vacation from Virginia and it was mine and my husband's first trip deep sea fishing (and out on a fishing boat, period) and we could not have asked for a better trip! Kevin and Brian took great care of us and took us to the fish, that's for sure. My husband ended up catching his limit on grouper and even though we got a little bit sunkissed, we had a wonderful trip! Thank you for making it happen, we WILL be back on the Eddy Lee again next year!!!

It was such a wonderful experience fishing with Captain Brian and Mike the mate. In June 2013 I brought a high school friend & her daughters who were visiting from Norway. We came home with 15 Grey Snappers & 3 large Red Groupers. We all had the experience of a lifetime. Cant wait to book my next trip! They offer the best fishing along with professional and courteous service! Book a trip & see for your self... The Season is Here! Thank you for a great day,

 Thanks again for an awesome day! After the first attempt and the bad weather, the second day was well worth the wait! It was really a great first time fishing experience and we will definitely be coming back next year! Also a big “danke” from the Austrians... they really had fun and having never been to Florida that made their trip really special.


Also, just to let you know, the fish were great and we had enough to feed 7 people. Thanks again for everything!!
