Testimonials for Mangrove Charters fishing and cruising 

Mangrove Mania!!!What an excellent fishing trip. This is the second year we’ve booked a charter with Capt Kelly Kurtz of Mangrove Charters and we were not disappointed. Capt Kurtz always knows where to go, what to fish for, what is biting at that particular time and also, who can cook it for you! We caught many different species of fish, but Capt Kurtz took us fishing particularly for Mangrove Snapper, and what a blast! He gives great advice, doesn’t make you feel pressured or stupid,and to these West Virginia freshwater fishermen, that means a lot! God willing, if we make it back to Florida next year, guess who were asking for?!!

“Anything that will tug on a line…”

We were taken on a fishing charter by Capt Kelly Kurtz. We so enjoyed the trip!! The fish weren’t biting early but the Capt was so knowledgeable of where, when and how to fish that by the end of the trip we had been kept very busy baiting, casting and reeling them in. I can’t imagine that any of his trips aren’t successful He was also very tolerant and patient when teaching these 2 West Virginia bass/trout fisherman how to successfully “land” the ocean variety of fish, he even taught one of us how to fish using electrical tape! We will definitely look Capt Kurtz up on a return trip.

Mangrove charters w/ Captain Kelly

My husband and I went on a morning fishing trip with Captain Kelly and let me tell you we had the best time of our lives! Captain Kelly was wonderful; he is extremely knowledgable, helped me bate by hook since I didn’t like that part of the process and made sure we succeeded in catching fish! If the area wasn’t working out we would find a different location. My husband and I caught several fish and then took them to Clayton’s to have them cleaned and cook ! They were delicious! We had so much fun on our trip with Kelly that I begged my husband to go again, so we called up Kelly two days later and schedule a night trip for the next day! The night trip was amazing, even better than the day trip! We saw dolphins and were almost an arms length away! We caught so many fish at night! All in all, Kelly was amazing and my husband and I can’t wait to schedule next years trips with him!! Thanks Kelly for giving us two great trips but most of all thank you for the memories!!!

This was the perfect birthday gift! Mangrove Charters of Sarasota with Capt. Kelly Kurtz was flawless. Capt. Kelly knew the ideal fishing spots, taught us to jig for saltwater fishing and we caught dozens of fish, our lines snapping nearly continuously. We would highly recommend this experienced and knowledgeable captain who was both personable and professional.

Great trip, Capt. Kelly Kurtz took me and wife and 2 young kids out on the water to fish, swim and cruise the sand bars looking for shells and sand dollars. Highly recommend for everyone, especially families looking to try something catered to their interests!

We had a particularly great charter with Capt. Kelly Kurtz, who I would absolutely recommend. I am a fairly inexperienced fisher and he was so helpful and patient. I will definitely never forget the charter spent with him – I even have a picture of the 17″ Redfish I caught framed in my house.

My family and I went out for the afternoon with Captain Kelly Kurtz, He was a fantastic guide. He is a great guide. He knew all the great spots where the fish were hanging out. He also took the time to teach my sister how to fish and use the fishing pole properly. It was a great day. I can’t thank captain kelly kurtz enough for a great trip. I would definitely ask for him again.

“Capt Kelly Kutz was very professional, knowledgeable and patient.”

I was looking for a 1/2 day fishing experience for my two young sons. Capt Kurt had great patience with my kids which is not always easy. They had fun and had plenty of fish photos to share with their friends and family.

Captain Kelly Kurtz of Mangrove Charters did an awesome job taking myself and my 7year old son on a night fishing trip. He was patient and taught my son the right techniques to catch different fish. My son had a blast catching mangrove snapper, trout, snook, and a big redfish that got away once to the boat (what a fish). Captain Kelly worked his butt off to make sure we had a good time and to put us on the fish. If you are looking for a great fishing guide, I would highly recommend Captain Kelly.

Thanks,

“Took a fishing charter with my wife and two kids. We couldn’t of been happier with Capt Kelly. He made sure the wife and kids caught their fish, more then Dad! Was very patient with us and we enjoyed our time with him. He knows where the fish are thats for sure. After he fileted the fish, he pointed us to a restaurant around the corner who cooked them up. A highlight of our vacation.

Would recommend Captain Kelly Kurtz to everyone.”

Thanks again.

“Captain Kelly took excellent care of my mom and I as well as my 14 year old son and his friend. He knew all the hot spots to go to, taught our boys so much about safe fishing, the tools required and art of reeling in the many fish we caught! My son caught a hammerhead shark, pompano, trout, flounder and many other species of fish. He also suggested a wonderful restaurant nearby, Clayton’s, where you bring your catches of the day after Captain Kelly filleted the fish, and they cook it to your desire. Amazing!!! Captain Kelly also suggested a fishing pole and other equipment that my avid fisherman son should have…everyone at CB’s and Captain Kelly were just a joy! We had a wonderful excursion that we will forever treasure and look forward to our next day out on the beautiful water catching many great fish! Thank you all for taking such good care of us and for your professionalism and expertise!”

Truly,

“I enjoyed a great fishing adventure with Captain Kelly. He is extremely knowledgable and gave me great tips that helped me catch a Snook. Awesome! But for me the best part of the trip was taking pics of three dolphins feeding and an encounter with an adorable manatee. Definitely book again with him in the future.”

“My father, nephews, and I went on a fishing charter in the Intercoastal with Captain Kelly Kurtz. Kelly knew the good spots, and we started catching fish instantly. Kelly didn’t use live shrimp, which turned out to be a major positive- with the number of hits we were getting, we would have been re-baiting constantly if we had used live bait. Kelly is also a good guy, and all of us had a great time.”

-Brian P New York, NY

“Before departing the dock, I shared with Capt. Kelly our trip & # 1 goal: Help my wife learn to enjoy fishing; I should have, however,
added a caveat … but not at my expense.

The Mrs. caught multiple fish of various species, in each and every manner
of fishing Capt. Kelly introduced. By midday, my wife was talking smack
as I struggled to land a fish worthy of cooler consideration.

Upon returning home that evening, she made sure everyone from our Indiana travel party knew the top fisherwoman in our family.

Thanks Capt. Kelly, for a job well done !!”

– Greg Tutor, customer for Mangrove Charters

“While on a family vacation to Sarasota in March 2013 I was fortunate to meet Caption Kelly and enjoy a day fishing with him on his boat. Kelly was very knowledgabe about the area and made it a point to contact me prior to our charter so he could taylor the trip to my expectations. Upon meeting Kelly on the dock I threw him a curve ball by having my whole family accompany me, Kelly welcomed us all aboard without a second thought. Our mission was to catch and release some Red Drum. Conditions were not ideal but with Kelly’s knowledge we succeeded after trying several different spots. Kelly was not only focused on the fishing but also on providing my wife and daughters with a memoriable day on the water. I was truely impressed with Kelly and would highly recommend spending a day with him, it started out as a fishing charter but feel I met another true sportsman and true friend. Warning Kelly….the Newfie will be back!!

Thanks again.”

“We loved Captain Kelly Kurtz and CB’s! We went on a 4-hour inshore fishing trip on the Sarasota Bay and our trip was the highlight of our time in FL. We all came in with little to no experience and with Captain Kelly’s guidance, every one of us caught fish and walked away with a newfound enthusiasm for the sport. We struck a great balance between relaxing and learning and will definitely call CB’s the next time we come back to Sarasota!”

“Awesome Fishing Trip / Captain Kelly Kurtz w/ Mangrove Charters”

“My 5 year old son has begged to go inshore fishing for months. The only problem is I don’t have boat, nor do I know a lot about fishing. I called CB’s and they got me in touch with Captain Kelly. I scheduled a trip for the next day and Captain Kelly was very professional in calling me the night before to discuss our plan of attack. Captain Kelly has beautiful well kept boat and the best fishing gear on the market. When it comes to fishing tactics and secret spots Captain Kelly knows them all. He is from the area so he has a lot of tricks up his sleeve. We caught a beautiful Red Fish, which was delicious, and not to mention a nice size Snook. Thank you to Captain Kelly and CB’s Saltwater Outfitters for the best day a son and father could ask for!”
