Message from Captain John Prather -- I would like to welcome you to our brand new website. Here you will find pictures, videos, blog posts of all the fishing and hunting I am up to. Explore the website and come fishing with us today. We are booking trips for the rest of the summer, and looking forward to our Fall/Winter trips too. We are now featuring bow hunting, and sea duck hunting trips. Looking forward to having you on the boat, tight lines.

  • I booked captain John for a stingray bow fishing trip. Nothing but good things to say, Capt. John and crew were very top notch and professional. He defiantly put us on the rays all day long, not more than a ten minute period without seeing rays, to bad we couldn't do our part of hitting them, although we still boated 10 rays. Would defiantly recommend him to anyone looking to experience bow fishing stingrays.

    Kurt N,
  • Great experience. John worked very hard to get us on some fish and was very successful considering the number of boats all fishing the same area. We had several first timers and they had a blast! I will definately be using him again! Thanks.

    Barry Kepner,
  • I did a half day of inlet and bay fishing and couldnt have been happier with my choice. Everything was first rate, from top to bottom. Managed to catch a wide variety of fish and wouldnt hesitate to book a charter again! Capt. Prather and Mate Tyler were on their game for sure!

    Colin Boyle,
  • Had a great time with Capt. John. Caught some Togs and watched a Boardwalk Train burn. A very eventful and fun experience! I'm looking forward to the next trip!

  • A big THANK YOU to Captain John & First Mate Riley. A 70 pound Sothern Ray was like a dream come true. Mark & I can mark one off our bucket list. Hope to see you again in June of next year to do this again!!!! Mark & Becky

    Mark & Becky Matheny,
  • Captain John, Jane and I had a great trip on Monday. You made Jane feel very safe. As we all know she is a land lover. You worked hard on trying to get us on fish.... but as we all know that's not what the trip is all about. Thank you for your time......... I will be calling you in the fall for rock fishing!!! Nick
