    Caring Crew

    The crew was awesome! They took care of everyone and worked their tails off helping everybody out. I caught a bunch of fish. I've caught more on other charters, but it just depends on the day. Overall I still caught a large amount of fish. Thanks for the awesome trip!

    Great fishing trip

    This was our 3rd fishing trip on the Swoop and it was great as usual! The mates were wonderful and we had a wonderful time. We had plenty of catches and they’ll make for some good eating when we get back to Texas!

    Poor experience

    Our last fishing trip in Destin was a much better experience. There were some fish caught on this trip, but boat was overcrowded, lines were tangled almost half the time, and the crew was sometimes busy fishing on their own instead of assisting fishermen on the boat. I had to wait ten minutes after they cut my line (due to being tangled) in a good fishing spot before I could get someone to re-do my line and tackle. We would not do this trip again.

    Eh

    Lines kept tangling, barely any fish at fishing spots , (and if there were they were tiny) I only caught two in which one the guys gave my fish away to another person bc our lines were tangled (obviously my fish, guy hook and weight wasn’t even close to fish) and the other one I caught was too small. Went the year before and had a great time with tons of fish

    Um....

    The mates were great. Took two kids to catch Snapper, none were landed on the entire boat. I’ve fished with you many times. I still tipped the mates, but I will NEVER party boat fish again. $300 spent and not one fish was brought home. (Partly my fault for targeting Snapper, when your fleet no longer fish for Snapper, even if they are in season)
