Thanks so much for sending the pictures. Needless to say we both had a
great time fishing with you Steve. We hope to book a charter with you over
the summer break. I'm starting the savings now!
I hope those boys from Chicago book with you as well. I was selling your
ability to find bigger and better fish pretty hard. Of course they only had
to look at what was being cleaned to see for themselves.
We are looking forward to another Fintastic, great time!!!!

We would like to thank you once again for making our trip fintastic!!!!!!!
It is a memory that will never be forgotten, by me, Clyde, or Josh.
We look forward to another one next year, we will keep in touch with you about it.
As I promised here are pictures of our trip. We caught fish so big took 3 people to reel in. Great time!!!
Thanks again,

Shirl, Clyde, and Josh Sumner

We went fishing on Fintastic fishing charters out of John's Pass. We planned to target grouper as the main event, and Amberjack just for fun. The big Jacks didn't disappoint. Once we got them fired up, they would blow up the surface lures. Great Fun! Thanks to Captain Steve Papen

"FISH ON" is the best words we can say about our charters with you!!!!!
You asked what we wanted out of the trip and we said "A variety of fish to fill the freezer and fun".
You know the spots and you know how to target each fish to catch. What a catch of fish we got: Grouper, Amber Jack, King Fish and Mangrove Snapper on our first trip out with you.
As I write this, Dave is packaging the fish to put in the freezer from our second trip with you.
One of the Amber Jacks is in the smoker right now with some mesquite wood and YES, FRESH GROUPER is going on the grill.
Thanks for another FINTASTIC fishing trip!!
We are already planning for the next trip out,

I have chartered fishing trips in Canada for Muskie, on Lake Michigan for Salmon, Lake Erie for Walleye, out of Naples Florida 10,000 Islands for red snapper and the inner coastal waters of St. Petersburg.
Captain Steve is the best of the best when it comes to a fun filled day of Trophy fishing.


I just wanted to thank you for the spectacular fishing trip you provided for Daniel and myself last Tuesday. It took my brother a day or two, but he finally admitted (he can be stubborn) that this was the absolute "Best Fishing Trip" he had ever been on in his entire life…All of my objectives were achieved…You wore his "butt" completely out (mine too…). Many, many thanks!!!

Thanks to Captain Steve we had an exceptional fishing experience catching a limit of Kings and topping off with 3 huge Kings, One was over 40lbs, another at right over 37lbs and the other just under 30lbs. We New Mexicans now understand how to live the good life in Florida thanks to the wonderful trip and excellent guide service Captain Steve provided. We are now in the process of scheduling our 2nd annual Florida Fishing trip for 2012 and Captain Steve is our only choice.
