“Went fishing with Captain Nick along with my 12 year old son and my mother. We had minimal experience and ended up catching dozens of fish a piece. Captain Nick was extremely knowledgeable and very personable. He made the day so easy for us and gave my son a few unforgettable experiences. With all the digital distractions that our kids have these days, it was wonderful for my son to forget about all of that and be super excited for every bite on his line. He can't wait to go fishing again!” -Julianne L.

"Went fishing with High Octane today and had a great time! Caught a bunch of fish and a nice variety. Captain Nick was fantastic with my 11-year old son and let him measure all of the fish and ride up in the tower with him. Nick took us to a bunch of spots and was generous with his time. Thanks for helping me make some great memories with my Dad and son! I would definitely recommend High Octane Fishing and can't wait to go again!" -Dana H.

"This was our second trip with Captian Nick. We had a great time catching trout, grouper, snapper, flounder, snook and cobia. Captian Nick is very friendly, hardworking and knowledgeable about the waters of Crystal River. His boat is clean and comfortable. Captian Nick is also a stand out from other captains we've chartered because he is very easy to contact and is always very prompt and ready for your trip. We look forward to fishing with him again in the near future!" -Ashlie W.

"We went fishing with High Octane yesterday and I already can't wait to book another trip!! Nick knew all the best spots, as well as what to use, and how to use it in order to help us reach our fish limit! Needless to say we maxed out on trout! We caught several different species of fish, one in which put up quite a fight and Nick knew exactly how to maneuver the boat in our favor inorder to bring that shark aboard! After the trip, Nick cleaned and filetted our catches which made it really easy to store for a later date! Thank you High Octane Fishing for helping make a forever memory in our book! See you again! - Meghan & Gio" -Meghan E.

“Had a great time with Capt Nick, he was well prepared and very knowledgeable! Took along a buddy of mine who I haven't seen in 20 years and Capt Nick made the trip a memorable one. One of the best times I have had fishing in a long time.”-Howard H


" My husband, nephew and friend spent the day with Captain Nick. They had a great time and could not say enough good things about him, his knowledge and his boat. He knew the waters and took them where the fish were. It was fun while at the same time Captain Nick shared his knowledge of the area and his fishing expertise. Even before the trip he was in touch with the guys and even post poned the trip due to predicted bad weather. Don't hesitate to contact High Octane Fishing and Captain Nick. It is a professional operation with a captain concerned with your safety, your fun, and your catch." - Connie C.

“was great. It was a COLD but clear morning when he met the three of us for our trip. We followed him to the ramp and he made every effort to find some fish for us. Worked hard in creeks, etc. as the cold weather had taken the fish off their likely spots. Caught several sea trout and had a great day and it did warm up. Will be doing it again.”- Paul G.
