Captain Tim is a great captain. I fished with my wife and two children (6 & 4 years old). The captain picked us up with the live well stocked. We got out and quickly had two lines out to hunt for redfish, snook, and anything else that swam by. Once those lines were out, the captain had another pole he was constantly putting chunks of bait on so the kids had constant action. Collectively, I think the two kids pulled up 8 different species of fish while my wife and I reeled in a bunch of snook, spinner sharks, black tip reef sharks, bonnet heads, a big ladyfish, and a jack crevalle. Of course it is easy to say, "of course he gave the charter 5 stars because they caught a lot of fish." I agree with that, but a captain that works this hard, obviously knew where to find the fish, and was a joy to spend 4 hours with for my whole family deserves a lot of credit. Thanks for a great experience Captain Tim. We'll be back.

Had an absolute great time with Captin Tim. Communication was good before the trip. He got us on the fish. And we had a blast! We caught several redfish and a keeper snook. Would definitely recommend Captin Tim to anyone! Thanks for the memorable day!

We had such a perfect day both weather-wise and fishing! We told Captain Tim exactly what we were interested in fishing for and he delivered above and beyond. Great time in both a relaxing and thrilling experience fishing. We highly recommend fishing with Seize The Bay Fishing Charters with Captain Tim to anyone.

We had such an amazing experience with Captain Tim! He is an excellent captain as well as very experienced and knowledgeable. He has been navigating these waters for 35 years and he certainly knows the spots! He safely took us offshore about 7 miles looking for a shallow water grouper. Unfortunately that day the grouper were either not hungry or sleeping in. But, Captain Tim was determined to get us some bites and get some fish on our lines! He brought us to another spot (He’s got his favorites)for redfish where the minute the lines went in the water we were getting some fish in the boat including a 19” Snook and 2 Crevalle Jacks that put up an amazing fight! He expertly filleted our catch and was kind enough to take the time to show me how as well as share some cooking tips for our Redfish which was absolutely delicious! Outside of his experience, Captain Tim is a great guy, easy-going, upbeat, and fun to talk to, and will answer any questions you have no matter what your skill level is. I highly recommend this charter for a fun outing like my wife and I had. We had a blast and will be booking another trip soon!

Tim was a fantastic captain who took us to some fantastic fishing spots. He even let us tag along to catch our live bait. The gag grouper were incredible. They bite when they bite. The trip was perfect because of time knowledge. We will absolutely use him again when we come over from

Captain Tim put us right on the fish, and we were reeling in large Red Fish. He was fantastic with both kids (7 and 9 years old), knowing exactly when and how to assist/coach them to success!

BEST charter my family has EVER been on!!! Captain Tim put us on the fish and scallops for a FANTASTIC day on the water! He was very knowledgeable and skilled. Having two kids and a husband that had never scalloped before I was worried it wouldn't go well, but Captain Tim had great patience with my family and taught them how to do it and encouraged them. Both kids were able to find scallops and I credit Captain Tim for that. My kids also love to fish, and he would move the boat to make sure the kids were getting non-stop action. We got a bag of fish to bring home for dinner and scallops to go with it too. (He cleans the fish so there were no bones and optimal fillets.) It was such an AMAZING time that my youngest is already begging to do it again! I highly recommend Seize the Bay with Captain Tim!!!!
