We chartered this trip for May of 2013. I spoke directly with John several times regarding the best harbor to take a trip out of based on our hotel and although there were much larger boats and harbors there was something about him that made me book. We spoke a couple of days before the trip to touch base and we knew the seas might be a little rough but we kept the trip booked (FYI - if you're going for several days, book your trip early so that in case you have to change days you have time). We took the boat out several miles, Captain John and First Mate Francis are the best!!!! The seas ended up being VERY rough and although my mother loved it, my friends and father were a little unsettled (take a few Dramamine before any boat trip). We tried trolling but the seas were too rough. We went to a few buoys that had success in the past and god was good that day and we hit several skip jacks and two yellowfin tuna. We were able to keep part of the catch at the end and shared the rest with John & Francis. I have deep sea fished on the east coast a lot and never have I experienced a trip like this with such amazing fishermen. Mahalo!!
