Every year, FishingBooker, the largest online platform for finding and booking fishing trips in the US, awards its best captains with the Angler’s Choice Award. This exclusive award honors the top captains on the platform for their efforts in providing the best possible fishing experience for their guests.
Out of over 7,800 charter operators on the platform, only around 15% got the award this year, and 58 winners operate in the Tampa Bay area! Citrus County captains are truly going the extra mile for their guests with 12 of the 54 charters listed with FishingBooker taking home the award. That’s 22% of captains! Pinellas County can be proud of having the most winners in total with 23 captains being awarded.
Clearwater, Crystal River, and St. Petersburg share the top spot for most winners in one city with 8 each, followed by Sarasota with 7 and Tampa with 5 captains.
To be eligible for the award, the charter operators had to meet the following criteria:
Above 4.5 out of a possible 5-star review rating from at least 7 verified reviews
Low cancellation rate, below 30%
High responsiveness to booking requests, above 90%
We’ve been awarding the Angler’s Choice Award since 2015. Over time, we made some improvements to the criteria, as we started partnering with more and more guides and the quality of service and customer experience went up. This has been a factor in our continued effort to improve our product and the satisfaction of both anglers and captains using FishingBooker. At the same time, the award is a badge of honor for our most committed captains, and a surefire way for anglers to recognize a top guide on our platform.”
