First Trip Out of Clearwater Beach

Went on FishEye Sportfishing Charters with Capt. Brandon Fraley and it was by far the best trip I've ever been on. Brandon and his deckhand Brian were phenomenal hosts and made it for an ever better day. 2 Truly great guys who love to fish and make it a great day on the water. I highly recommend them to anyone who fishes in that area. You won't regret it.

Went about 50 miles out and immediately jumped on some ARS. Caught our limit and then moved on to grouper territory. Caught all red grouper, largest was 17 lbs. All 4 of us ended up catching our bag limit on the red grouper before the end of the day and even had a nice mango thrown in along with 3 nice lanes. Finally got my first keeper grouper. All in all, couldn't ask for a better day.

Definitely a trip I will be doing again in the future.

    Full day offshore. He told me that spending the extra hour looking for ARS would be unnecessary and he was totally correct - had our bag limit of ARS in about 40 minutes. I wanted to go June or July so we could go during ARS season and gag season.

    Absolutely book with him, though. We caught a ton of fish and equally as important, he made it a fun trip.

    Brandon is a great guy and great Capt. I've recommended him to friends before.
