Captain Shannon has taken my family out on fishing excursions for three years in a row and each trip has been absolutely incredible! We have caught a variety of fish including mangrove snapper, sheepshead and grunt just to name a few. He is an incredibly knowledgable fisherman and takes us to special locations where the fish never stop biting! My sons, aged five and eight, think Captain Shannon is a hero and can't wait until they are old enough to be his first mates! I would highly recommend Short Drift Charters for your next fishing adventure!
