    We had a blast with Captain Brad and his crew Miles and Whitney! The boat had a toilet, lots of comfortable and covered seating for those that were not fishing. They were great with instructions and techniques on how to land the catch! They knew all the hot spots and we had enough fish to feed an army dinner!

    Our group had 5 people with little to no fishing experience. Brad took us to fish for yellowtale first, about 35 minutes away from the dock. He and his hand Miles showed us how to use the rods properly and we caught about 10 or 12 yellowtales. They were both very friendly and helpful, we all felt comfortable and had a good time. Unfortunately some of us got sea sick so we decided to cut the trip short. Brad had cautioned us about that beforehand and offered to move our trip to a day with calmer weather, what we would have done would we have had the time. We would definitely go with Brad again. He is a friendly local guy and he made the trip fun and personal, not at all commercial like some of the bigger boats. He knows the area and waters very well.

    Rick leads a fine charter, and his deckhand Logan were instrumental in enjoying our time catching as many fish as possible.

    Rick and Logan are awesome, would love to go out with these guys again. Despite the weather we still went out and caught fish. Could have only imagined how well the trip could have been if Mother Nature had been nicer.

    Captain Jason and Blaine (sp?) were awesome! We scheduled this trip MONTHS in advance and anticipation grew as our date finally approached, only to be met with rain and high winds on our original date. Captain Jason stayed in communication with us and offered an alternate date we could go out; thankfully we were still going to be in town on vacation. There was a variety of fish caught, some had to be thrown back due to size or not yet in season, but all in all it was a good day at sea (even with myself spending a good majority in the cabin due to sea sickness). The hubs even caught a shark! We would definitely use this team again!

    Captain Jason proactively reached out the day we booked to confirm, learn about our fishing interests, and prep us. He texted the night before with all the details for the next morning. He and Blaine were ready and eager to get out and show us a great time. Blaine was awesome giving us instructions and tips to make sure we had success. He worked his tail off for us and had a blast while doing it. Got 2 black fins right away and had an awesome day in the Gulf. Will be telling all our friends from up North to book!

    Our trip with Captain Rick and his first rate deckhand Logan was fantastic. They put us on multiple fish of different types and we tried different methods, some trolling, a lot of bottom fishing and some deep water with electric reels. We caught a lot of large triggerfish, three King mackerels and enough Mingo (vermillion) snapper that we had far too much fish to eat over the next two days. The boat was fantastic, offering the six of us more than enough space to spread out and all fish at once, and Logan was knowledgeable and efficient at everything. I really enjoyed catching a small shark and we had a larger one steal some of our fish to add a little excitement. Near the end of the day we had a large amberjack up to the boat but unfortunately he got off. We played with a few barracuda as well, caught a few snapper and small groupers that we couldn't keep and in between spots, we could chat and I enjoyed learning about the local waters and the trade. I personally caught 22 fish and my son got 21 so we were busy. The weather was near perfect and Rick adeptly steered us around a small storm, where we got to see a waterspout. I would highly recommend Gulf Bay - we had a blast and really enjoyed getting to learn from a couple of true professionals. Thank you Captain Rick, thank you Logan!
