Captain Doug rocks!
My family has been coming down from Chattanooga to fish the waters around Apalachicola for decades. We have had both good and bad experiences along the way, but we’ve never had a great, perfect in all ways, trip until we went out with Capt DC. He is very knowledgeable about the area and very skilled at his craft. He is reliable, prepared and friendly. What my son and I like best about him though, is his passion for the sport. He gets into his guests catching fish as though they were on his own line. I can honestly say, we will never work with another captain again for so long as he can drive a boat and I can cast a rod. 5 stars all the way around.
Captain Doug is great with kids
Very impressed with our half day fishing charter with Capt. Doug Chason. Original charter date had to be rescheduled due to weather and Capt. Doug went out of his way to make sure we got to go fishing before our stay was over. Trip was great despite rough winds making the fishing tough. Capt. Doug spent much of the charter teaching us techniques and even spent a lot of extra time with our 11 year old niece who was a first timer, all without the slightest bit of annoyance or complaint. He even showed us some dolphins and had them jumping behind the boat on the way in. Cannot recommend this charter enough and we will certainly be booking again the next time we’re in town!
Highly recommend Captain Doug
Had a great day fishing with Captain Doug. The weather was not the best, but we wanted to go out and fish anyways. Captain Doug kept us out of the rain an on the fish. We caught tripletail, trout, and even a shark. Captain Doug did a great job explaining to my daughter and I what we were fishing for and how to fish each species we went after. We will definitely be fishing with Captain Doug again I would highly recommend him.
