Hands down the best offshore trip I've ever done. Ryan immediately put us on the snapper. The fish we threw back in the beginning indicated we were going to have a great day because he was confident we would catch much bigger fish - and we did! Next he took us to the grouper. We caught some nice grouper while the "pesky" red snapper kept jumping on our lines :) We also caught a grey snapper, black snapper, scamp and amberjack. Lastly, they said they wanted to try to hook us something bigger. We went to his secret spot and within 10 minutes we landed a 70 pound amberjack. Capt. Ryan obviously knows the waters and Cale (the deckhand) was so good all we had to do was keep pulling the fish in. We were always baited and ready to go. If you want to catch fish, Southbound Charter is the way to go!

Just went on our second trip with Capt Ryan. We limited out on grouper then caught 57 Mahi and some really big Amber Jacks. Capt Ryan is the best captin we have ever been out with. Big, Fast, Comfortable boat.i cant think of one negative thing about Southbound Charter. already have a trip booked for next years snapper season. oh yeah Cale the deck hand is pretty damn good at his job to.

Absolutely the best trip. Went on a 24 hr trip. Ryan knew his stuff. Fought some of the biggest fish yet on a deep sea trip. He had us catching fish constantly and they were not small. We packed the fish box to the gills. Fast boat allowed us to get to big fish water fast. When the last amberjack hit the box we were out of energy. Nothing like catching fish until u can't stand to turn the reel another crank. I won't be going back with anyone else.

The boat is amazing & goes really fast! The ride out & back was worth the money as it is!! We caught a lot of fish that day, too bad the red snapper was not in season but they were a blast to catch!! Coming home with grouper & white snapper is making for a nice big fish fry!! Ryan & Cale really know what they are doing and we had alot of fun hanging out with them for the day!! We have been on many charter boats & this has definately been one of the best!! We highly recommend you choosing Southbound Charter for a great fishing experience!!

Ryan is an amazing charter captain, when we go out I hate going home knowing I gotta clean all those fish we caught. We have been numerous times, and have always had great catch. He will put you on the fish. I've been with many other charters and none can compare!
