    Deep sea fishing

    The people on the boat were extremely nice people. The only issue was that out of the 6 hrs we only fished maybe 1 hr (if that). It took over 2 hours to get to a location and they only let us fish for a couple of minutes and then we’d move a little further. If you want to enjoy a nice boat ride, this is a great trip to take but if you’re like me and really love fishing, choose something else that will allow you to do that. The weather was beautiful and again, the people who owned the boat were SO NICE! Maybe they should put in the description that you will only be able to fish an hour even though it is a 6hr trip!

    Hi Skiey, I'm happy to hear that the crew did a great job on your trip, but sorry to hear that the conditions affected your overall trip. Typically it takes 1.5 hrs to get to the locations where you will find fish, however in this case the captain to travel out further. He also had to move the boat several times to keep the boat on top of the fish. While most trips will offer much more time than you described, there is simply no way to guarantee that they will be in their usual spots as mother nature can affect the best plans. I hope you still enjoyed your visit overall and that we see you again another time. Thanks you for booking with us and for sharing your experience. TripShock Guest Service Manager

    Fishing trip

    Fishing was great! Just disappointed only 4hrs of fishing with 4hrs wasted on the round trip. Also some smoking crew members which were great guys blowing smoke which sometimes went straight to my face.

    Hi Rudy, Good to hear you had some good fishing opportunities, but sorry to hear about the smoke. While smoking is allowed on the excursions, it is supposed to be limited to the back of the boat. We'll be sure to let the company know of your feedback though. The 4 hr afternoon trips are great for those who either don't want to get up early for early morning trips, or who just don't have much experience and want to just try deep sea fishing. Next time, take a look at the 6hr or 8hr options as those will give you a lot more actual time fishing. Thanks for booking with us and hope to see you next time! TripShock Guest Service Manager

    Good time, poor fishing

    The trip was good, crew was very helpful, ride was nice, fishing was not. We kept moving around searching for fish and didn’t have much time actually fishing. When we were catching, most of the fish weren’t large enough to keep.

    Gulf Fishing Trip-Gulf Breeze-Capt. John Gibson

    Shop around a little. I didn't really feel welcomed on this trip. I almost felt like I was bothering the crew for even going. The crew was basically going through the motions. To be fair to the lady crew member, she seemed the friendliest and the most willing to help despite the captain chewing her out as soon as she stepped on board. The other deckhand would cut your fish loose without saying a word or reason. Later claiming that we were at our limit but they weren't keeping track. ... read more

    You get what you pay for

    Went out for red snapper and only caught small white snappers. You’re on a boat with 25 plus other people and paying only $70 per trip so expectations were low to begin with. We took a 6 hour trip, 2 hours to get out there and 2 hours to go back in shore. That leaves us 2 hours of fishing time, of that time we probably spent another hour worth of time bouncing from spot to spot. The captain does this on purpose so one area doesn’t get overfished. Realistically a 6 hour trip you can expect an hour of fishing time..... the crew is nice and helpful so tip them when u go. We took home 12 baby fish.

    2 hour tour

    Overall, it was great. We caught a ton of fish and the mates on the boat were fantastic. The captain has a pretty awful temper. Outside of the boat he seems to be a nice guy, but he was pretty gruff in the boat and there were some words exchanged with other boats. The most disappointing thing about the whole tour was that we drove for 2 hours to get to a fishing spot, fished on and off for 2 hours (at one point we just sat in one spot and let the dolphins take our bait), then it took two hours to get back. I wish we had more time fishing. The fish were great and we really did catch a lot. Probably 40 between the 4 of us. And everything was cleaned afterward (you had to reclean afterward, but a good start). We will definitely do it again, just wish there was less of a drive.

    Just OK

    I had fun with my Brother in law on this charter. However whenever the fish would start biting they would say we are moving on to the next spot as soon as fish would start biting again we would have to real the line in and move on to the next spot. We caught about 10 pounds total of red snapper that's about it. Probably wouldn't take this charter again.

    Son had fun

    When you take a six hour charter plan on fishing less than half of that! Drove 1 1/2 hour out and bounced between 3-4 spots just to catch small fish. Threw 3 times as many back as we kept. Biggest fish might have been a pound, might have been. Crew did a great job though. Just thought there would be more fishing and not just a lot of small fish. You are fishing for the small fish to catch as many as possible.

    Fishing trip

    Advertising for a 6 hour fishing trip is a little misleading for anyone looking to book a trip. I made reservations for my husband for his first ever trip to Florida only for him to be a little disappointed. Nowhere did I read did it say you only fished for an hour and a half to two hours. I understand there's travel time to get to the fishing spot but when it's advertised as 6 hours of fishing it's kind of disappointing. So we'll know in the future what to expect.

    Not as I had hoped

    We had gone on the Gulf Breeze boat on a Monday and the crew was friendly and very helpful so we went again on Thursday on the Tropical Breeze. The crew was not nearly as helpful nor very quick to help with twisted lines or to get fish off. One of the hands seemed more interested in smoking on the back than anything else. Luckily, he was not our main guy for our quadrant of the boat. Also, luckily/unluckily, we only caught 3 fish that were keepers. Captain Steve seemed to have problems getting us to fish as we must have moved 10 times in a 4 hour cruise. Some of that had to do with dolphins stealing our fish. I personally had two fish stolen from my line. The line bent very far over then went straight and nothing was on the hook. We did get away from the dolphins but could not seem to get... read more
