Went fishing on the Main Attraction with Marty and Digger. They were awesome. Super nice guys that were really easy to get along with. I went with my husband and 5 of his buddies. They had a great time and caught a lot of fish. As soon as we put our line out, there was a "tap tap" and if... More

We just completed a half day fishing trip to the reef with captain Marty and Digger. We were a bit of an atypical group since we had 2-7 year olds, 2-4 year olds and 2 fathers who have a tendency for sea sickness. We went on the Main Attraction II. It was a nice boat and very well kept. We... More

Not going to lie, the first couple of hours resulted in zero catches. The Captain and Nick never gave up and were relentless in the search for fish. Finally with about an hour left on our trip, we hit it big. They stayed on this spot well after our time has expired in order to land enough fish for all... More

Just returned from a morning out with Captain Ben on the Reel Attraction, with my wife who has never fished before this morning, Ben found the fish on the first drop of the anchor; we fished out our limit in Yellow tail, landed three mackerel and one Tuna. My wife landed 60% of the yellow tail and we have both... More

Captain Phil and first mate Digger did a great job putting us on the yellow fin tuna. We hit our limit within the first 3 hours. We then changed over to mutton snapper rigs and caught 5 keepers and had to throw back another 8 to 10 that were to small. It became a challenge once the sharks moved in,... More

Fished on Main Attraction II. Half day reef trip. Loaded up on Yellowtail and Mangrove Snapper. The captain and crew were terrific as they made sure my 11 and 7 y/o kids caught plenty of fish. We have our own boat and this was my opportunity to relax. Would recommend these guys in a heartbeat.

Did a full day on Main Attraction II and the mahi weren't to be found. We caught a few small ones but that's fishing. Capt. Joe worked hard but could only give us an expensive boat ride. My average rating has nothing to do with not catching fish but because of the first mates disregard for the environment. When two... More

Morrismain, Owner at Main Attraction Charter Fishing, responded to this review

This customer is absolutely correct. No one should ever do what this mate has done. He has been fired, do to his actions. We wish the customer had made contact with management concerning this issue, but at least we did find out from the review and have taken action to prevent this from happening again. We at Main Attraction are... More
