Review of Deep Sea Fishing Party Boat in Destin

  • JOSEPH WONG Alabama, USA May 27 2019 10:59am

    This is the second time we go with this company. We have a great time the first time we go eventhough we have to go through stormy sea. This time the sea is calm but we encounter dolphins that took our fish at lease twice. So the fishing is not so great but do catch a few small one. But two things ruin our fishing trip, first we were assign fishing spot where it did not happen the first time and most of all, we are missing fishes. I believe our fish went to someone else. My wife recalled the last few we caught, they took it without asking our number. So it end up going to someone else. The biggest thing is I hope they can improve is to make sure the fish go to the right party, especially when fishing is slow. That is why I only give a 3 star.

    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

    Great Deep Sea Fishing Experience

    This was the first time we had been on deep sea fishing. It was a memorable one. Sea was very calm. We caught a bunch of Mingo Snappers. We wish we had few more varieties of fishes. Crew were fast and very helpful. We'll return again in future.

    First time and great time

    We took an evening trip that was only 4 hours and with an hour each way we were worried about actual fishing time being short. The captain found where fish were biting but the fish we were catching were not in season sonhe kept moving the boat to new locations where we would catch fish that were in season. He made sure were all pulling in fish. The deck hands were helpful. The trip was great and we can't wait to go again.
