    Worst fishing boat I've been on

    I've been going on fishing/drift boats since I was 15. This was the absolute worst experience. It is like they went to the roughest waters intentionally. I saw other boats closer to the coast where the waters were calmer. There were people on the boat who were scared about about 10 people who were sick. We spent a total of 30-40 minutes fishing. Most stops we got 4-6 minutes in and lines up time to go. The last stop we were able to go a little longer as there were not dolphins steeling the fish. The dolphins of course were not the fault of the captain. I have been in rough seas on fishing boats as well, but the way this one was navigated was concerning. There were a couple of times I thought I was going to end up over the rail.

    Will definitely book with them again

    This is our second time fishing with Olin Charters, but most certainly not our last. The deck hands were amazing and made the trip fun and unforgettable. Still hear them yelling "Bull Mingo's all day Captain" in my head a week later. We loved the Captain's witty sayings and banter with the deck hands. He made sure to put us in the right spots and also out maneuvered the dolphins who kept stealing our fish off our lines. No easy task, but he did it. Ended up with 18 large keepers just for us, but the 15 other fishers ended up with about the same bounty. Can't wait to go again!

    Excellent time with my 7 year old little girl.

    This was a last minute decision, and I’m glad we decided to do it! We had a fantastic time, and it was the first time my daughter has ever been out fishing in the ocean. Calm seas and experienced crew and captain. When I say they put us on the fish, they put us on top of them. As quick as my line hit the bottom I was reeling fish in. We don’t eat fish but we had a blast. We caught around 25-30 fish in our time fishing. Remember they move around the reefs in order to catch the fish that are in season. We fished about 15 minutes in each spot and then they would move down a few hundred feet and we would drop our lines again. The crew was exceptional and very helpful, they were great with kids. Jimmy is the man. I will say the crew works very hard and they work for tips, so make sure you... read more

    Captain Jack A$$

    Good luck... hopefully you won’t experience the captains superstitions and be threatened off the boat.
