28 Feb 07 FEEDBACK Captain Art,
This is Bob Coffelt. If you remember we fished with you on 1/17/07 and caught the big king that we had to hand line in after it got caught on the prop. I am mailing you a disc with the pictures and prints of some of those pictures we made from that trip. The pictures came out great. We had a great time fishing with you and would recommend you to any one. Don’t forget to mail us the T-Shirts (Both Size Large) you told us you would send. Thanks again for a great trip. Hope to back soon. Bob Coffelt
28 Feb 07 Fishing is great !!!! Cobia are showing-up with the manta rays all over our fishing grounds; soon free swimmers will follow. Bottom fishing is awesome with great catches of snapper and grouper. King Fish has been very productive as usual and we hand-lined a 48 pounder smoker that got tangled in the cotter pin on the prop (amazing that line didn’t break). The other day we chummed a school of 40 mahi over to the boat that were feeding on a weed line. The birds following them gave them away. Fishing at its best this time of year and only getting better!!!! So come on, what are you waiting for, your fishing adventure awaits..Capt Art
13 April 07 Been so busy, doing what I do best, have very little time to update web site. Fish have been chewing the bottom out of the boat!!! Caught lots of fat cobia during their migration south; sometimes swimming with giant manta rays. King fishing been phenomenal usually catching daily bag limits. Bottom bite is still going off and the dolphin and sails are starting to show on our fishing grounds. Don’t forget the yellowfin on the other side; doesn’t get any better. Everyone has the fever, come get some……Capt Art
30 Apr 07– Tuna fishing is awesome !!! Filled both fish boxes with yellowfin, blackfin and mahi. Only had to go 70 miles. Fish were feeding well on surface. Lots of bird packs to take us to the fish. Largest tuna was around 80 lbs; mahi averaged 30-40 lbs. Best start of the tuna fishing season in years. Come on and get some!!! Capt Art

I would like to thank you for the extra effort you put in to getting the charter set. I was not able to go and was a little skeptical setting this up over the phone. You took very good care of my sons and their friends and did everything that I asked,and also caught plenty of fish (BIG) like you said. I booked this charter because you seemed to be a man of your word and it turned out that was the case. The boys spent a week in Florida and all we have heard is about the Fishing trip and Captain Art & JC. You guys made their trip. I’ll be there next time I promise. Thanks Again Ron Carimi
11 June 07 FEEDBACK Art this is Jeff Mills and I just wanted to thank you for the great fishing trip. We all enjoyed ourselves and had a blast spending the morning on the water with you and JC. I will definitely be getting another trip together to come out and catch some more monster fish with yall, as well as recomending you to anyone I come across looking for a great trip. Once again thanks allot for the great hospitality and putting us on the fish.
27 Jun 07 – Fishing been awesome !!! Been doing lots of bottom fishing (21,27 fathom and deeper)with great results. Trolling for mahi been good and weed lines are forming as summer continues with calm wind and seas. King Mackerel bite is on as usual with mahi,cobia,sailfish, sharks and barricuda mixing in the catch. Looking forward to Dwyer’s (otherside) tuna tournament 7 Jul; hope to do well. All in all, great fishing!!! I’m so lucky!!! Capt Art
14 Aug 07 FEEDBACK Art,
Thank you for a great day of fishing. We had the best day ever to catch fish. The weather was great (hot, but great). The fish were doing everything but jumping in the boat for us. Had some great hook ups and brought most of them in the boat. All together we brought 32 in the boat and was able to keep 24. 14 Kings, 8 AJ’s 1 cobia and 1 dolphin. Had to throw 3 other kings back because of the barracudas taking off the tails. Art tell CJ thank you and we will be looking you up again.
1 Sep 07 FEEDBACK Hey Art it is me Scott Garcia I recently went out with you my brother and dad. By the way that big grouper we found tasted great. I don’t think my dad ever sent you a thank you letter, but just wanted to let you know that you made a trip that will never be forgotten for any of us. I was wondering if you did split trips. Because my Brother and I want to go in the near future before I go back to college. Maybe on the 13th or 14 of september. If you have anything avaliable please let me know. Becasue we will not go with any other captain in that area after we got the treatment that we got from ya’ll.
5 Dec 07 – Bottom fishing going off !!! Water is starting to cool a bit and fish are moving into shallower waters. Been catching grouper, snapper, amberjack, sea bass, trigger fish, etc.. 27 fathom ridge been working the best. King Mackerel have finally shown up on the ridges and were’re catching many over 20 lbs. Inshore water temp is around 70 deg making ideal conditions for tripletail and cobia. Also with cooler waters mahi have started there southerly migration through our fishing grounds along with sailfish. All in all, ideal fishing conditions !! So come on, your fishing adventure awaits.
