Night fishing - great captain and crew

We (my two kids, ages 11 and 12, and I) went on the night fishing trip last night - $60 including gear and there were about 25 people on board. Miss Dorothy was very nice when... read more

The mates were the best part of this trip. The boat was over crowded and Captain seem to fish reefs that had little to no production. This was probably caused by being over fish by the boat. I have been fishing this boat for more than 30 years and will not be back.

Hi Ray Sorry you feel this way. You had mentioned your fished on our boat for 30 years so you should know fishing is fishing some day it can be slow and others great. The Captain and crew try very hard to catch fish. More

Great value for your money and time. If you want to reserve the fantail just ask when buying tickets or reserving tickets. The crew will gladly filet your catch for you, the cost is well worth it. We have been out on Marathon Lady 6 times and have always enjoyed.

My husband and I reserved a day of fishing on the Marathon Lady. Very nice and clean boat. Deck hands were always there to unhook a freshly caught fish! We caught all grunts and we had a lot of fun!

Been on the Lady before but this was the first night fishing trip ... What a great way to beat the brutal sun and heat during the day when you can't get in the water to cool off and squeeze in all the the activities you want to do on your trip! Crew members Josh and John were awesome! Very... More

We went on the morning fishing trip. We had such a great time!! We had not been on a fishing trip before but there were plenty of people on board who had and they even brought their own gear. This trip is not just for newbies like us. The boat wasn't crowded at all. We rented rods for 5 dollars... More

We went on the morning outing and had a great morning. The weather was good with calm seas. The boat was not too crowded which was good. Rented rods (5.00) and bait is all included. The crew was very helpful and friendly. Whenever you catch a fish the crew come and take it off for you and you then put... More

We had a great time on board the boat, especially since my BF didn't have to bait my hook and help me each time I caught a fish, I haven't mastered the art of taking a fish off a hook yet!! The captain and mates were so nice and helpful, truly went out of their way to make sure you... More

Boat and crew were great, but the rented rod/reel was the worst junk I ever have had on a fishing trip. All the good fish were caught by the locals who could actually cast away from the boat, which was impossible on the rental rods. I guess you get what you pay for at $5 for the rod, but really...
