Verified Review Fishing

Justin was professional, once explained the basic rules,he disappeared into cabin until we landed. No access to captains helm was granted, so we couldn't see instrumentation etc. Brandon worked hard and was very pleasant. Was surprised that we had to have fished cleaned by third party. Also surprised that 4 hr trip was dock to dock. All my past trips started at start time and we were fishing until time was up. So we paid for drive to site and they gave us return trip. Actually we only fished 2 hrs. Captain worked hard to keep us on fish. They were very small, but he warned us they would be.You need to be much clearer on your web site about fishing time and fish size, also you clean your own.

The boat was super clean, well organized. The cabin was air conditioned and very comfortable had bunks down below to lay down when you wanted. Overall excellent experience. Caught our limited red snapper in a very short period of time. Brent the deckhand was very entertaining and helpful, he kept everybody in fish.

We couldn’t have asked for a better Captain, Deck Hand, or Boat! This trip exceeded expectations with both the service and the fishing. Brandon took us to all the good spots and we were catching fish the entire time. If we had lines in the water the fish were hitting. And Spencer was super-fast with reloading baits, taking fish off the hooks, and helping with the occasional tangled lines. Overall this was an experience for the books!!

We had a blast on our 4 hour fishing trip. Caught lots of fish and the deck hand and captain were both amazing. Our entire group has talked and talked about this experience. Definitely will use them again.

Excellent trip! This was our first Charter so we didn’t know what to expect. The second we dropped our lines in the water we had fish on the entire time. Hayden the first mate was awesome! We took our 5 and 7 year old with and they had a blast too. We will be back for sure. Remember to tip them well they deserve it!
