Went on a 7 hour trip August 21, 2016 with my son and two good friends who had just moved to St. Pete that week. I would definitely consider the four of us amateurs, but I have been on enough charters to know a friendly captain and first mate are necessary to have a good time. Captain Ryan and Curtis made for a great day on the water. Caught lots of fish, ate some of the fresh fish made at Crabby Bill's after the day on the water, and had a drink with the crew. I would definitely recommend a trip on the Fish Taxi with these guys.
Capt. Ryan and his crew gave us a non stop action filled fishing adventure. We limited out on Red Grouper in 20 minutes, caught and released amberjack until we were blue in the face. caught and released my first trophy sized red snapper(18 to 20 pounds). I cant say thank you enough . I highly recommend any one experienced or not to book a trip with him.
We had a great day. The crew was great and and really knew their business and all the good spots! They were very helpful and did everything but reel in the catch. This is a good charter for the novice or angler. Captain Ryan even gave us lots of tips on how to store and cook the Grouper. We caught the limit in less than 6 hours. We had Crabby Bills cook up some of the catch that evening! Very fresh & very good meal! I recommend this charter!
Had a great time, reached our grouper limit in a hour. These guys know how to fish! We caught a ton of red grouper and two sharks. Check them out, you won't be disappointed. Thank you very much.
THANKS FOR A GREAT TRI RYAN. I CAUGHT MY FIRST RED SNAPPER EVER. I DIDN'T KNOW THEY GREW THAT BIG. WE LIMITED OUT ON RED SNAPPER AND RED GROUPER. PERFECT BOAT AND AN EXCELLENT MATE.
I took my son and nephew out for their first deep sea fishing experience. Capt. Ryan and Kirt were awesome. They are first class fishermen and were able to find the fish. We must have caught 50+ fish and had a blast. Of course we took home 6 keepers. When we got back to the dock, Capt. Ryan filleted, bagged and iced our fish. He then gave us some awesome recipes to prepare our fish. We ended up taking them up to Crabby Bills for an awesome dinner. In addition to being a real, down to earth guy, Capt. Ryan takes pride in everything he does. When he prepared the fish for us, he filleted is as if he were going to cook it for his family! Thanks for everything Capt. We’ll be back.
We had a great day of fishing and viewing dolphins. Captain Ryan put us on the fish and as he explained how to use the equipment he caught a fish. We caught some nice grouper, wish I would have taken advice and done a longer trip for more grouper. Kids had a great time it was all Kurt could do to keep up taking fish off and re baiting the hooks. If we come back to this area again we will definitely do another trip with Captain Ryan. Thanks again we had a nice fish fry that night and have several more in the freezer!!!
We had an incredible adventure on Jan. 3rd with Captain Ryan and his crew. We could not have asked for a better day! Everyone caught tons of fish - mostly grouper - and we finally lost count! We were very impressed how good Captain Ryan was with the kids in our group, how easy he made it to catch fish by putting us in the right spots over and over again, and how him and his deck hands helped with baiting and rod/reel "how to's". My son was thrilled with his 15th birthday adventure experience and we have a lifetime of memories and stories now. I know we'll come back and fish with Captain Ryan again! Best of all even, mom & dad didn't have to filet it as Captain Ryan takes care of that too! We had a fish fry that night and it was mouth wateringly delicious! Best I've ever tasted! Thanks again, Captain Ryan! Save us some fish to catch next time!:)
This fishing trip was the best. Captain Ryan had us on fish from the start. I don't know
how many fish we caught, I do know we caught a lot and several different species. The conversation was good, the fishing was great. We still talk about this trip.
Couldn't have asked for more from Capt. Ryan and crew. From the minute we boarded his vessel to the moment our catch was in the bag our party of six had a great time. Capt. Ryan made our day of fishing one of the most fun days on the water I have ever had and to make it even better he put us on the fish all day. Everyone aboard the boat had a smile on their faces the whole day. I can guarantee that I will be back to fish with Capt. Ryan and crew again.
