    Rude crew

    I would not use this charter if this is your first time deep sea fishing. They do not have the patience to work with first timers. My daughter got her line crossed with someone at the end of the boat. As she was trying to tighten her line the crew member gets a hook in his finger and starts cursing at her. Which led to an argument between me and him. As we are arguing no one on the crew ever intervened as an employee is yelling at a customer nor did they say anything about him cursing at a 16 year old girl. The one positive thing I will say is that we caught fish.

    3 hour boat ride with 1 hour of fishing

    I am an experienced at party boat fishing. The crew were nice and hard working. However the boat was crowded. Originally I was told they typically book 15 people. On the 65 foot boat, there were around 30. This led to a lot of tangled lines. The Captain seemed inexperienced. He kept moving around to different spots. Sometimes only spending 5 - 10 minutes in a spot, even when several of us were catching. While drifting he would often rotate the boat while the lines were in the water causing tangled lines. We were never really told the depth where the fish were so we were just fishing the bottom hoping to get a bite instead of reeling up to where the fish were. Overall the experience was just ok.

    No fun this year

    Crew was rude. Had assigned seats with no pole when it came time to fish. Ran out of bait. This is our forth or maybe fifth year with this company. It will be our last. To top it off the crew came around the boat n begged for tips.

    Unfriendly Crew

    I love to fish whether I actually catch fish or not, so this post isn’t about catching fish. The captain was very gruff and unfriendly. The crew didn’t speak to you unless you spoke directly to them or the were providing instructions to everyone on the boat. Several people on the boat got sick but I expected that due to the rough water. I would go on another charter but not this one. As a paying customer, I expect a bit more customer service. Even a smile goes a long way, and none of the crew were smiling.

    Too many people on the boat, every other cast got tangled up with 2 or 3 others lines. Crew not very customer oriented or friendly. Two hours fishing,two hours travel. Outdated equipment,very few fish caught. Was not given proof of fishing license issued to passengers. Saw no life Jackets on board nor safety equipment either. Crap shoot of a trip

    So I overheard the deckhand ask the captain “are you sure we are going out in this?” To which he replied “yep”. 32 people on board and 11 got seasick due to 6’+ swells. The captain canceled the second outing after we got back, that’s how bad it was. While people were throwing up, one of the deckhands say “I ain’t never seen this many casualties before”. Not to mention they smoked cigarettes nonstop which increased the nausea. 6 hours and only 4 fish per person. Totally not worth it.

    The deck hands took fish and gave them away.

    Fishing was so so but the end is was very wrong by your guys giving fish away that was caught by my party, even when we showed him in a picture with my party holding the fish up he still refused to give us our fish. But told us we didn’t catch that many and only wanted to give us 5-7 fish. But was told to come back the next day and they would make it right. Now how can that be if they didn’t plan on taking someone else fish. Bad business that they practice.

    Bad spots

    Caught one snapper while Captain's friends and regulars caught mine and my brother's and other people's limits for themselves. I guess it would have been the same if I would have caught them but I didn't so there. Never will I book with this company again.
