“A total tool... Miserable experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

He is expensive and yells at other fishermen from his boat with clients on board. Any suggestion is met with an arrogant scowl and he's mean to his mate. On the trip he acts like people are his crew not clients. The other fishermen called him "Sammy Hagar" when yelling back insults, that made everyone laugh. As far as the fishing? it was mostly "by catch" like sharks or mackerel. Captain Dave Mistretta is a local bully in indian rocks beach. He likes to beat up old men and throw his weight around. I grew up here and can't find a single local that likes this guy, he is tolerated and generally ignored like most swaggering drunks. Find another charter, ANY other charter, seriously. you would be much safer with a captain people won't want to shoot at. I certainly won't give him another referral or any of my business ever again.

“Not worth it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013 via mobile

Spent 6 hours fishing with this boat and captain. Boat great, mate great but Captain has an attitude.was not enjoyable at all caught a few king mackerel and grouper but nothing like I expected. Was like he just wanted to catch a few but not work to hard and find bigger. Cost 900 dollars for six and 20% for the mate $180 which is way over the top. You can find cheaper and better. Take this charter at your own risk.
