My friend surprised me with a 1/2 day fishing trip with these guys. The guys on the ship were great and prep everything to be great. Unfortunately, the ship stopped in two locations about 10 miles deep and in both locations most of ppl on ship were not lucky with good fish as most were sea bass and small that need to be throwback. I felt bad for the guy while prepared the rods, the bait and he wanted everyone to be happy catch fish. Well, I will come back again and try these guys.

We have been out with the other head boat in the area before, so we decided to try the Double Eagle on this visit. We went twice this visit. The first trip we went out was great! Shawn was our mate and he was friendly, helpful and smiled. Had such a great experience, that we booked with them again. Took out freshly cut fish filets and had Salt Cracker Restaurant cook them for us (had enough for two meals there) and they turned out awesome! The second trip out, was not the same experience. There were two mates, Will and Angela. Angela was friendly, but was mainly at the other end of the boat so our personal experience with her was limited. Will, however, offered zero instruction to the people fishing.. There was a family of SEVEN that didn't even have poles when we got to the fishing spot....after an hour ride out, a mate should have picked up on that. Will did not seem happy to be there at all and barely spoke to any of us. We had our fish cleaned and took them to Crabby's to try a different spot. When we got our fish, there were so many bones in them we couldn't eat them. This was not the restaurant's fault, this was how the mate fileted the fish. Wish we would have called ahead and asked if Shawn was going to mate. If we had gone out with Will the first trip, we would have chosen another boat for our second trip.

The crew was great and there are no complaints there. The reason I am only giving 3 stars is because the fishing was terrible. There was an awful lot of fishing and very little catching going on. I kept waiting for one of the stops to yield some fish, but each stop was a bust. I get that some days are good and some not so good, but this was just not acceptable. Every person I spoke to caught no more than 5 fish, with the exception of a couple of Bonitas and Spanish Mackeral , they were all very small grunts. I expect a lot more than that for a full day of fishing. It seems to me like this company needs to make more of an effort to find new spots that haven't been over fished. I fish on these kind of boats a lot and this might have been the worst trip yet for catching keeper fish.

Good morning I just went in your boat yesterday for the first time and have to say it was a nice riding , clean and comfortable boat. The young mate that helped and cleaned the fish was awesome , hard and good worker. I would give him a raise lol Now the bad (sorry) I was very disappointed that the captain told us that the boat usually can get out there faster but due to the limited amount of people he was told to go slow to conserve fuel which took more time away from us to fish. Costing us atleast a extra 2 hours of drive time. The man cooking the food was rude, smug looks and not friendly. The food was horrible and a hotdog on regular bread ? Can’t get hotdog buns ? Young kids are like what’s this and threw it away. This is a family boat not a commercial rig. No other bait like shrimp and or pinfish ? The one guy catching fish brought his own bait. Yes it was rough out and lots of storms but when everyone is fishing and not catching it’s time to move don’t you think ? Then the whole crew left the mate to cut fish, clean boat and all the miscellaneous stuff to do ? New guy or not that’s not a team. Then you spend a hour at the dock cutting up fish that could be done on the slow smooth ride back but just to show people what you caught made your paying costumers wait even longer to go home, and if your using Grunts as your advertisement that’s pretty sad. I understand the cost of running a boat like that but if your going to give the people on the boat a shortened or a budgeted type of a trip then you should not charge the same. We all paid the same fee either a full boat or not. You win some you lose some. That’s how a business works. Sorry the way the trip went is not sitting with me right. I was very excited to go on this boat and turned out not so good.

The captains and crew were extremely patient and helpful. It was my first experience and I went very unprepared. Roelf, the First Mate did an incredible job tending to 43 Anglers for 34 hours. The captains were both very supportive and concern that everyone had a good time. Captain Chad was great and fun. He caught , of course, the biggest fish. My neighbor to my right was also very helpful. Even the cook, Mike, was also dedicated in assisting everyone who needed help especially me. It is rough when you do not bring sleeping gear and no rods and reels and to show up 2 minutes before departure time!!!! I highly recommend this charter, which far better than the one I previously tried in John's Pass. I recommend to get better informed on what you need especially you will need special reels and rods designed for very deep fishing. Lots of fish were caught including everyone got their snapper limit.
