  • BEST CHARTER AND BIRTHDAY PRESENT EVER!!!!!!!

    Created Grant Bernstein (2019-7-8 , 17:13)

    My parents bought me the best birthday present I've ever received! Captain Robert Taylor is an expert @ fishing as well as customer service. His knowledge of everything fishing is extraordinary. Both parents went with me even though they are not big fans of fishing. Well...I kid you not, they are now! From reddish, snook, to several different species of shark, we caught them all. The captain was even able to talk my mom into successfully hooking and bringing up close to a 6' nurse shark. This was her 1st time EVER fishing. The most important quality about this charter was that we had FUN! From beginning to end we all had a blast! Don't waste your money on the big ships running charters. There is no way that they could ever give you the attention or service that Captain Robert Taylor gives you. NO ONE KNOWS THE AREA LIKE HE DOES!!!! One thing I've learned in life is that the individuals who do the best at whatever job they do, absolutely love their job. Capt. Taylor definitely loves his job. He was responsible for myself having one of the best days of my life. Last thing I want to say is that, I am a Marine who was overseas and I have multiple issues with depression and P.T.S.D. It is honestly hard for me to enjoy life. That one day fishing with Capt. Taylor was one day that I can honestly say "I was happy!"

  • Fun in the sun

    Created Scott Evans (2019-7-6 , 21:26)

    Had an absolutely awesome time on the water with captain robert. Laid back attitude and a day full of fish. Never new with all the fishing I've done how valuble a captain who knows how to put you on fish. This man make it seem easy.

  • Simply amazing

    Created Kylie Szady (2019-7-6 , 21:23)

    Capt. Robert was honest with my party from the beginning about the how the fish would bite. He urged us to hold on off our trip because of the damage red tide had done. We opted to go anyway and caught trout, snook redfish, Spanish mackerel and other things. We had a blast , he made sure we had fun enjoyed the time on the boat he even reminded us to stay hydrated and reapply sunblock. I recommend Capt Robert and mangroves 2 cattails to anyone looking to book a trip.

  • Created Scott B (2019-7-6 , 21:20)

    Highly recommend. Rob had us on fish with in 20 minutes. His prices are extremely fair and over all a good dude. He works hard around the boat making sure lines are baited and rods are in the water.

  • Great fishing experience!!!
