“I have been fortunate enough to charter with Captain Bucky Goldman on 2 separate occasions, and have had great success getting in position for awesome fishing in the Tampa Bay. Not only is it beautiful being out in the great Florida outdoors, but Captain Bucky makes is particularly fun and entertaining. We did very well with redfish (over 11 lbs), jacks, snook, and many other by-catch fish a long the way. Tampa Bay has a great variety of fisheries, and some awesome areas to explore. He has many options for launches and trips, take his recommendation, get outside, and have a great time catching fish with Captain Bucky! I can’t wait to get out again!!!”–Chris Rodriguez~San Francisco, CA

Our team was down for our annual sales meeting in Orlando. We have always chartered a fishing trip before heading back home. We normally target large mouth bass and have had some good trips. We wanted a change and set up a trip with Captain Bucky for red fish on Mosquito Lagoon. He put us on the fish.  Best charter we have had so far in the Orlando area. Captain Bucky worked hard right up until our trip was over to find us fish.  He will be our first choice for future charters.Larry Huffman~West Virginia

“Capt. Bucky Goldman of Bag’em fishing charters was first rate!!!! He knew where to go, he put us on the fish, and it was a VERY VERY pleasant charter. We were EXTREMELY SATISFIED with ALL facets of the charter and look forward to fishing with this Capt. very soon. I would rate his charter as an A+A+A+A+”

“I have fished all over. Fly in’s in Canada, Lake Toho, Venice LA, various lakes in Texas and Kentucky, Gulf of Mexico, San Fran Bay, The Keys, Miami and I’ll have to say fishing with Capt Bucky is always fun. We have gone out with Capt Bucky 5 or 6 times and have NEVER been shut out. He puts you on the fish! His boat and gear are always in top form. Used 2 other captains in the flats and were not impressed found Capt Bucky and won’t call anyone else.”-Tom Abrams~Chicago, IL

“My son and I were looking for an excursion while the family was in Orlando. Just a quick drive over to the coast and we were all set. Everything we needed and more. Captain Bucky is an excellent guide – knows all the spots and definitely knows what he’s doing. Best Orlando fishing ever. We had a blast and look forward to our next opportunity to hit the flats!”– Wes Levitt – Columbia, SC and Andrew Levitt ~ Clemson, SC

“My wife and I were flying down to Florida for a long weekend. I started googling fishing guides and quickly became overwhelmed with all the options out there. Coming from New Jersey I did not have any refferals to go from. I stumbled upon Captain Bucky’s site and decided to book a trip with him. Once I received a phone call from him I knew I was in good hands. He definitely knows his stuff when it comes to redfish and how to find them. Our arms were sore from catching fish all day! He was also very accommodating to me and my wife who was 7 months pregnant. Thanks captain Bucky!”-Rob and Nicole~Lake Hopatcong, NJ

“A great day of fishing on Mosquito Lagoon with a knowledgeable guide. Set out early, cruised a couple of spots & once we settled in found the local fish fighting & biting. Ask for Capt Bucky and enjoy reeling them in!”-Mark Cunninghan, UK“We had a great time with Captain Bucky.  A good guide can’t guarantee fish but he should work to find them.  We had terrible weather but it didn’t dampen his enthusiasm.  We still released an exceptional number of reds and trout.  It would be hard to say who had more fun.  Good stuff.”-Pete Dunlavy, MN

On May 10, 2017 we fished with Capt. Bucky in Mosquito Lagoon near Orlando.  We had a terrific day, 12 nice Reds and 4 Sea Trout, several of them real monsters, biggest trout I have ever caught.  The Redfish were unreal, big, healthy and strong fighters.  Bucky was patient and pushed our angling skills to the max, which paid off big.  He put us on fish, helped with technique and taught us some valuable tricks of the trade.   All in, a great day on the water, I have inshored over 30 time and this was a top 2 day for me, I will charter Bucky again asap.  My buddy Brian and I had  “double hook-ups” as well, first time ever.   Thanks Bucky !!Paul Uhler- Pennsylvania

“We had a fantastic time and caught some of the biggest speckled trout I have ever caught. Capt Bucky has terrific personality, wealth of fishing knowledge and genuinely focused on having a great fishing experience. We fished two days with my daughter and son and they will remember the fishing for years to come. Best Orlando fishing experience ever. Thank you again for the great time and memories!”– Andrew Cooper~ Austin. TX

Joe Cammarano~Lockport, NY

“Captain Bucky took two of us out for a day on the Mosquito Lagoon. We had the best Orlando fishing day I have had in a very long time. We got huge Redfish that we released to be caught again another day after taking pictures to show off to our friends. Captain Bucky knows the lagoon like his back yard and his knowledge of how to catch them is second to none. Can’t wait to book him again for a future trip!”– Joe Cammarano~Lockport, NY

“My son, Darian and I enjoyed our trip with Captain Bucky. We caught several nice fish, enjoyed our time on water and the equipment was first rate!!”-Darrell Froud~Greenland, Arkansas

Jeremy Cranker ~Rochester, NY

“Capt. Bucky has eyes like an osprey…20mph winds and he was still spotting reds 40 yards from the boat. We had a fantastic time sight fishing big reds with Bucky. He put us on the fish quickly and kept us on them all day despite the tough weather conditions. Capt Bucky is a first-rate guide, can’t wait to fish with him again!”-Jeremy Cranker ~Rochester, NY

Nicole Gaston and Blue Gaston ~Spokane, Washington

“My sister and I had the opportunity to fish Mosquito Lagoon with Captain Bucky at Bag Em Charters in Mid September.  Sight fishing Mosquito Lagoon has been on my bucket list for years.  I live in Washington State but I am originally from Southern Florida and frequently go to the Miami area to fish backcountry, reefs, offshore, and flats.  When I finally got the opportunity to fish Mosquito Lagoon I was lucky to book a charter with a guide who was so knowledgeable and fun.  Fishing with Bucky at Bag Em Charters was a blast.  I have fished with captains around the world and it is rare to land a guide who is both such a fun guy and a great fisherman.  He put us on red fish all day long with the occasional speckled trout despite the cloudy and high water.  My trips to Miami will now always be combined with a drive up to the lagoon to fish with Captain Bucky!  If you want to fish with a guide who is the real deal in a fishery that is world renowned- Captain Bucky is your man!!”–Nicole Gaston and Blue Gaston ~Spokane, Washington
