One Love Sportfishing Offshore Apparel
Captain Rex and Danny gave us the experience of a lifetime when we reeled in our very first sharks. We caught shark, Tarpon, and Snapper while visiting the lighthouse and an old shipwreck on our short trip. Couldn't have asked for nicer guys to lead us out. We feel absolutely no pressure at all from two experienced professionals that made us feel right at home on our voyage. We will look them up the next time we visit the keys!
Thank you, Gentlemen!

We booked a morning fishing charter with Captain Rex and had an amazing experience. Captain Rex and his mate Jason were great hosts and got us out right on time. We were lucky to have good weather and it did not take long to find fish. There was non-stop action throughout the morning with yellowtail snapper, mutton and grouper, plus a number of other species that were not ‘keepers’.
Captain Rex and Jason were great with our kids who were deep sea fishing for the first time. Overall it was some of the best fishing I’ve experienced. Rex cleaned and prepared the filets that we could then take to local restaurants. Some of the best meals we enjoyed in Islamorada.
Thank you Captain Rex for a great day of fishing!

What a great time with my wife and daughter. Capt Rex is super knowledgeable and made us feel comfortable even though we are rookies when it comes to fishing. Will definitely come back again with the boys for an all day trip.

Captain Rex put us on the fish from the start of the day. First mate Christan ran the deck and was outstanding. Hit our limit of Mahi Mahi. Lots of fun and expect to return again to fish on the One Love.

Had a great time catching Mahi & Blackfin Tuna with Captain Rex on the ONE LOVE! Excellent day, highly recommend!

In one afternoon we have created memories for a lifetime - support local business and get out on the water. Captain Rex and Christian did everything they could to provide me with the best experience -- hoping to jump back on board again in June.

We booked a 1/2 day trip with 3rd Alarm Charters out of Islamorada over Spring Break. My son and I are avid fisherman, my wife not so much but we all had a great time. We were going to target sailfish and dorado but the wind and waves were up. We stopped and caught bait and before we headed out Captain Witkamp gave us the option of staying in tighter to shore and targeting yellow tail snapper. It was pretty rough so we chose to chase snapper. Glad we did. Boated a bunch of nice yellow tail, a few big black grouper that were out of season and went back, mangrove snapper and my son boated a big parrot fish. That was a first. We’ve done a lot of charters. Captain Witkamp and first mate Mike were knowledgeable, worked hard, and were polite and friendly. You can tell they love what they do and are good at it. We had a great trip and will definitely book with these guys again. You can’t go wrong

We had an absolute blast fishing with captain Rex, he was extremely knowledgeable and an all around great guide. He did everything in his power to get us on the fish and keep us on the fish while using several different tactics. We started out with a few parrot fish followed by some yellow tails and then things got exciting when I hooked into my first ever grouper followed shortly after with my second grouper, it was absolutely exhilarating!! If your looking for an awesome fishing guide give captain Rex a call, he’ll be the first person I call when I’m looking to set up my next fishing adventure!

We visited the Keys for spring break and the whole family (wife and kids aged 17, 12 and 10) booked the One Love for our first charter fishing trip. Captain Rex was great finding fish for us while Eddy and Christian did a great job teaching our kids some of the tricks of the trade. Everyone caught a lot of fish on the reef and the kids loved the various species that we were catching - yellowtail, grouper, blue runner, grunts, etc. and then we went out deeper to chase some larger fish.
We had pretty rough seas and were lucky that the ‘One Love’ was a larger boat and seemed to handle the waves pretty well. Eventually the waves got the best of us so we decided to go in a little early. Eddy and Christian cleaned and fileted the fish for us and we had enough to eat for the rest of the vacation. Most restaurants around Islamorada will cook your own fish for you - we went to Islamorada Fish Company to eat right on the water.
After the trip was over the kids used the knowledge they were taught by the Eddy and Christian to continue fishing from a pier and continued catching fish. Now that we are home all three kids say the trip on One Love was the highlight of the trip.
Thanks Rex, Eddy and Christian for a great trip.

Capt Rex was tracking the weather radar before our trip and asked us if we would be able to leave an hour earlier to avoid having to return early due to potential thunderstorms. We had a great time and caught more than a dozen mahi mahi, and made it back to the dock minutes before the storm came. Capt Rex offered to clean our catch and keep it frozen for us until we were heading back from our vacation. Capt Rex is friendly, courteous, and a great guide. We were blessed to go out with him and would highly recommend him.

Capt Rex took us out for a morning Mahi Mahi trip and we had a blast. Rex was patient as we are nowhere near expert fishers. We hooked one of the largest Mahi Mahi I’ve ever seen however he got away. We made up for it with a couple of keepers later in the morning which Capt Rex prepared and froze our fillets for us after our trip, and we picked them up the day we left. Would strongly recommend going fishing with Capt Rex for anyone considering a great day of fishing.

We had a great day fishing, the fast boat took us out to the fishing grounds in no time. Captain Rex knew exactly the locations where to find the different types of fish making it an exiting day out full of fish fights. Can’t wait to be back for another day of fishing! An amazing sports fishing charter in Islamorada!

We booked this charter with Capt Rex and let me tell you it was the best fishing we have done in a long time! Not only was he very knowledgeable as a captain and fisherman but as an overall person he is delightful and knows a lot about fishing and how to catch them! The conditions weren’t ideal for Mahi but we did have some bites. Then we went in for bottom fishing and we gotta put on some big muttons and yellowtail. We did get some big bites but broke off a few times . And Captain Rex also exceeded our expectations and made a great memorable family trip. I would recommend to anyone whether a novice or an experienced fisherman.

Rex & Mike went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable, had a great time and also very important. Put fish in the boat. They were very knowledgeable of the waters and how to fish them. Awesome time guys!!
