I think that my husband and I were the only people out of 26 or so that did not catch any fish, but we still had a really great time, based largely on the lobster experience part of the trip. The captain takes you out about an hour's trip to the fishing area. You probably spend about an hour to... More

Leaing out of Southwest Harbor, right next to Biel's Lobster, this was a nice trip that I would recommend. I knew ahead of time the type of fish we would catch, and we got mostly pollock, and mackeral, and I caught 1 cod. The fish were not that big, the cod was maybe 3 pounds, the rest were the size...

Though we got off very late, the trip was worth it - the Mate was an extremely hard worker and the captain was pleasant. They made sure everyone had a good time and helped those of us less experienced anglers who had a tendency to get stuck on the bottom! It wasn't the greatest haul; but we got to see... More

There were over 25 people on board during our fishing excursion. Barb prepared us for our trip, beforehand, by notifying us of what to bring to be most comfortable during the four hour experience on the water. A stop by an island to view seals was entertaining. The fishing wasn't the best on the day we went out, but the... More

The supervision and help we're wonderful and we LOVED Barb - (Good luck to you Barb - you are in our thoughts). They were very knowledgable and my husband,... More

My wife and I took our grandson for his first experience deep sea fishing. There were 17 people that went on the trip. We first visited a small island to oberve the seals as they relaxed on the rocks. We next received instructions on how to handle the rod and reel for fishing and how to bait the hooks. The... More
