I am a 65 year old avid fisherman and have been on my fair share of fishing charters. Vacationing in Florida and wanting to get on the water I came across Big Bay Charters and Captain Nate Diaz – BTW This the first time I have taken the time to post a review. So hands down the most prompt, personable and professional charter Captain I ever dealt with!! Water temperature wasn’t ideal – with that said we landed some nice Snook, a Jack Crevalle ( an amazing fight!) and he has a secret spot for Bonnet head sharks. Caught 3 in the matter of a half hour. So don’t hesitate to book trip
