“Good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

It was a fun trip. I felt sick at the beginning but got better later. Easy to make catches, but hard to catch one that is long enough to take away. Service was nearly perfect. Staff will help to unhook the fish after you pull the fish up.

“Would do again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

Our group spent two days fishing with Rick and crew. They had beautiful weather and caught a mess of sea bass. 23 keepers the first day and 12 the second. The crew was very helpful and nice.

“Grade: F -terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

This fishing trip was horrible. Caught one fish and stayed in one spot way too long. I don't recommend this charter. Not worth the money.

“Drove 4 hours only to turn around and go back home”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

We had been looking forward to this fishing trip for months. I reserved a spot for us in the evening after checking their online calendar to make sure there was a trip going out that day. There was and the lady confirmed it on the telephone. We drove the 4 hours to Lewes and arrived at the wharf 30 minutes prior to leaving. There were more than 12 (the minimum required to go out - weird policy but we were aware of it beforehand) and we were confident that this fishing trip would happen. We waited for about 10 minutes and then the lady at the booth informed all of us, "Sorry. We will not be going out today because the captain is running late and he's been on the boat too long." You can imagine the disappointment of the group over the news and [lousy] excuse for the cancellation. Why a company didn't have a back-up captain was beyond us. And so after driving 4 hours there, we drove 4 hours back home, disappointed and irritable.

Bottom line? This company is completely unreliable and unprofessional. Do not book with them unless you're prepared to waste your time, fuel, and money.
