The sea is famously unpredictable, but when you're fishing with Captain Phil Hartman at the helm, you're almost guaranteed to have a memorable time. With almost 35 years of Florida-fishing experience under his belt, as well as Coast Guard certification, the oceanic expert effortlessly keeps passengers safe while offering tips on nabbing elusive game fish. Passengers' potential hauls may include tarpon, snook, redfish, and trout. Those who brought dry-clean-only rods, meanwhile, can reel in a complimentary snack or bottled water from the deck instead. Some Floridians catch their first-ever fish with Captain Hartman, who welcomes kids onto the boat. And with 50 vessels available, A Fishing Connection can accommodate intimate and large groups alike.
