Client Testimonial

Colin Morgan fishing with Reel Aggressive Charters review

Colin M.

Cpt. Rob made it very enjoyable and we have had a blast catching fish every time we have been out. Cpt. Rob taught me how to fly fish and also helped me catch my first snook on fly, we must have caught around 40 snook in a single night trip my first time out. It was absolutely awesome. Captain Rob has a killer boat, rods, and tackle. Cpt. Rob has the program down to a science and definitely knows what he is doing and always knows where the fish are. I will most definitely be going out again soon. Thanks Cpt. Rob!
