We were relly looking forward to a relaxing morning 3 hours river fishing with crab pots. we were picked up and taken to the boat landing 15 mins late , only to listen to the boss, call his captin and speak to him with some very verbal swearing, at this point we should have just canceled. but we were driven back to the jetty by where we were picked up from. getting on board boat 45 mins later.
The captin was a very nice polite man,maybe a bit embarrased! we then took a boat ride back up the river to where we had been in standing 15 min early. ( lots of wasted time)
Droped the crab pots, and off fishing, Fishing in the river was non existent, there was noting to cut the bait with, and no help with getting the rod's right. 1x had no sinker and was floating, 1 x heavy and sinking.
At 11.30 Captin had a call from the boss asking where we were at and that it was time to come back. even though we lost 45 mins at the start of our 3 hours. Very disappointing ad a complet waste of time and money. No one has the right to speak to any staff nember like he did. I di not need a lession on verbally abusing people.

Sorry Mr Expert Fisherman? Firstly we enhanced your chances of catching Crabs by dropping the Nets the night before, sorry they did not obey your orders and climb in? Any Angler in the WORLD knows that Fishing is a sport and is also luck. Any Lake or River Angler understands that you have a floater and a sinker? Not sure of your comments here as some fish feed from the bottom others from the surface that's why we gave you both opportunities. You choose the time to go? Fishing depends on many variables being, sun, moon, clouds tides etc, you should understand this. NO FISHING CHARTER IN THIS WORLD will guarantee a catch in inland rivers and lakes?

Your clock must have a problem also with regards to being late 45 minutes? Your memory obviously deceives your comments as you forgot that I personally picked you up from your Resort in my own Car not from the Jetty? As far as rude comments made when in Rome do what the Romans do! My Fijian Family are extremely pleased with my efforts in educating their father and expect me to tell him off when he is wrong or makes a mistake, it's a learning curve but did not realize you we ear dropping.
We were not late and these comments are completely false please supply your real name and address.
