I called to book a charter on 7/06/2021 & was told that a 12 hour trip for 7/20/2021 with Ryan T targeting yellow tail had to be a 41' Trojan at a price of $3600. I made sure to tell them that I didn't want to catch Red snapper. Everything ...Read More was a go. Fine on all parties. I paid the deposit. On 7/19/2021, (day before) I was told that the 41' Trojan broke & I would have to use a smaller boat & they would lower the price. I was fine as long as we could target Yellow Tail. Then he said that would be tough but other big fish options would be easy. It was too late to look for a different company or boat. It was the first bait & switch. On 7/20/2021, there was no Ryan T, it was an unheard of guide (Wes). No credentials. Another bait & switch. Different boat, different captain. He told me we would target Red snapper. That's not the fish I wanted. We caught 0 deep water fish & 4 red snapper near the harbor. Captain stopped using the fish finder all together. It sucked. Terrible! He charged my card without my permission. Not sure how! I expect a refund. I want my money back. I feel taken advantage of. Our trip last year with a different company was a great experience and it was $1600. Different boat, wrong captain, no deep fish and only targeted the fish I didn't want. Fishing under shrimp boat is not worth $3900.
