We went fishing on the 19th in the afternoon. We weren't catching anything the first 2 hours. The last 2 hours we caught more fish but not enough to keep. Kyle and Adam did a great job getting us to the fish. My daughter had lost her cap during the trip and when we moved to a different spot they... More

We went out in a 4 hour bay fishing trip 7-15-2014 on the Hard Bottom with Kyle and Adam. These 2 guys were awesome! They went above and beyond what I was expecting. I have been on bay fishing trips elsewhere and they don't even come close to what we experienced. If you ever want to go fishing while in... More

$65.00 down the drain! Signed up for a half day of deep sea fishing but only had 2hrs of actually fishing; spent most of the time traveling. When I asked why all I received was attitude and excuses about currents, tides and captain's preferences...They claimed to give us an extra 30 minutes of fishing but they failed to recognize that...

We went out on the morning with Kyle and the Captain. The staff were helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. We all caught fish. The staff took the fish off and showed the kids the non-edible items (sting ray, puffer fish, sea slug). Our daughter was able to touch and hold the fish. Staff were patient to allow for pictures, etc. Would... More

Probably not their fault completely but hardly anybody caught any fish and the staff didn't go out of their way be visit with you. The one fish I did caught the staff just came over, took it off and walked away with saying a word.

Out of 9 people only 2 fish were keepers. But....it was a beautiful day, we saw dolphins and the ride was... More

This was our first time there and was highly disappointed. The weather called for 3 to 5 foot waves and we were in 6 to 12 waves and swells. Needless to say, the captain kept on going out when 10 out of 22 people were sick, included one of his own crew, with 7 of them unable to fish. This... More
