“Forget 5 stars, this guy is 11/10. Outstanding Captain! First trip was me and two buddies looking to target some fun flats fishing with a special emphasis on redfish. Capt. Craig absolutely nailed it. The day tallied out with my buddy landing his first redfish, as well as our group catching more species than i care to count, we found a school of Jack Crevalle and chased them around catching one right after the other until we were more than satisfied to call it a day. As an added bonus we brought home a couple of the many mangrove”

“Craig is a fantastic guide. I went on a trip with him for a wild adventure and we got just that! His boat and equipment are very nice. He puts you on the spot to catch some bucket list fish. The weather wasn’t cooperating with us in the morning so Craig worked very hard to run us around the storms and put us on fish. He even broke up our trip to maximize prime times for being on the water! Started off as a guide and we left as friends! I highly recommend fishing with Goliath. Charters, and HIGHLY”

A lot of people can catch fish but to be a successful guide you not only have to be able to put your clients on good fish consistently but you absolutely have to be fun to fish with.

“If you want to rip the lips off fish, Capt. Craig is your guy. This barefoot Fabio of the Keys can put you on anything from Nemo to Jaws. The way he pilots his boat on the flats would give Capt. Jack Sparrow a run for his money. His knowledge and experience fishing the lower keys may only be exceeded by Poseiden himself. Books will be wrote about his legend. Seriously, give this man your money and get ready to bend some rods and experience the beauty the keys have to offer. You cannot go wrong with Capt Craig.”

“If you want some rod bending drag screaming lip ripping action come to the Florida Keys and fish with Captain Craig Clopper. If you wanna chase bone fish and permit on the flats he will he will get on the platform and pole the boat around for you to give you the best chance at these fish that get spooked real easy. If you want to take your family out and catch some dinner and cook out on the flats he can do that to pretty much what ever you wanna do Craig will make it happen. Craig is”

“This trip was absolutely amazing! We all had an amazing time and caught tons of fish! Captain was so patient with our fresh water casting and teaching us about the saltwater ways! He had his own fresh bait, and helped all of us learn to bait, cast, and reel in multiple catches, and took us to amazing sandbars and fishing spots. We highly recommend to charter with him to have a Goliath time on the water!!!”
