We went out for 12 hours and no one on the boat caught a fish. The captian said they would refund out money when we got back in and they didn't.

Not worth the money, The deck hands are rude and unhelpful. Gave my fish to the girls a few spots away. When I asked jim about it he said " you girls can fight it out" I will never use this charter again.

We have been on this boat a few years ago and came back to get to potentially big fish. We left at 7:30 am and were driving at least 3.5 hours before our first stop which was about 60 miles into the gulf. In total we made a bout 5 stops and would stay about a half hour to 40... More

We took the four-hour Wednesday morning fishing trip. There were about 75 people aboard the vessel. The trip out to the fishing area is about 1 hour. Each person has an assigned rod and spot to fish from (it is on their ticket). It is odd, fishing elbow to elbow with 74 other people. My husband ended up catching several... More

Got to the pier to check in. Guys at the counter were dealing with another customer about a refund for a gift certificate. Regardless of their policy, their handling of the customers issue was poor and their attitude seemed to carry over to the rest of us checking in. We had a little time to kill before the boat launched... More

We have been fishing with this company for 20 years. We recently went on a bad trip. We've been on bad trips before that's part of fishing. But this time the current was so bad not one keeper was brought on the boat. That's 100 spots unfilled. We even headed in early so we only got about 3 hours of... More

We did the early bay fishing trip. The crew were helpful and friendly, the boat left right on time and is clean and in good repair. The captain moved the boat several times to try to find good fishing spots, and we caught a bunch of small catfish and many people were catching small sharks. No keeper for us, but... More
