5th time out with Captain Chet Jennings and as always, we had a great time and caught lots of fish. While the tarpon would not bite, we did catch trout and mackerel, including a huge mackerel.

Have been out with Captain Chet with my son and work colleagues on multiple occasions. He gets you on the fish every time. Could not be happier. When I visit Ruskin Florida I always book a trip with Captain Chet and you should too.

We have fished with Chet several times and are booked in the future as well. He’s a great captain and fishing guide. You’ll catch lots of fish and really enjoy time in the beautiful waters here in Florida.

We are fishing novices but had a great Sunday morning with Capt. Jennings. Caught about 24 redfish, snooker, and trout. Such a nice guy. Geared every thing to our level of expertise and made the whole experience so enjoyable.
