Couldn't have been more pleased this morning with our excursion with Captain Steve and Sam. I don't write many reviews like this, but feel compelled to since we all had such a great time. There were five of us - my wife and three boys (8,6,4). All three were able to reel in multiple fish (as many as they wanted... More

My husband and I enjoyed a half-day fishing trip with our 10 and 12-year-old boys a couple days ago. Captain Steve and his first mate, Sam, couldn't have been more helpful and interested in making sure we were having fun. We caught a decent amount of fish, there was a lot of action, including one bonnet head shark, a Ray,... More

My family went on a charter with Captain Steve and his First Mate Sam in the jetty's and had a great time. They have a great sense of humor and have a lot of insight not only on fishing but the entire island/state. They put us right on the fish and made it easy and fun for all of us.... More

We had several charter boats to choose from when we wanted to charter a boat for a half-day charter. Capt. Steve Hair, and his Mate, Sam, on Ye Olde Pirate was our choice. Wonderful choice!! On board was our daughter, teenage grandson, and my husband and myself (both in our early 70's). We had our choice of sitting in the... More

We went out with the Ye Ole Pirate had a great fishing experience. We caught 3 red bass, all larger than allowed to keep, but the largest fish we had ever caught. Also caught a large mess of whiting, they are great eating. Kind of like perch back in MI. The pirate and mate knew the area and pointed out... More

Sorry--cannot recommend it. My 10-year-old daughter and I went to Fernadina Beach for a few days of vacation. Deep sea fishing wise, we were flexible on days to go, times to go, and who to go with (just as long as the boat had a bathroom). Fishing-wise: 5 star day (caught over 2 dozen whiteys(?), 2 sea bass, a puffer... More

My brother and I took our boys (10 & 12) out on the Ye Ole Pirate as a birthday gift. Turned out to be a great idea. The boys had a blast. Captain Steve and Sam are always great to fish with. I've been several times with them and I'm sure I'll make another trip in the future.

My wife and I asked around about charters and this is the charter that a lot of locals mentioned. We also ran into a couple who books with them every year and books at least twice in on vacation. Captain Steve and first mate Sammy are awesome. Very friendly and knowledgeable. You WILL be going home with a lot of... More

If you are looking for a Captain that will put you on fish this is your guy. We have been out with several and Captain Steve is the BEST. We caught more fish and got a good history of the island. He is knowledge of the island with living here for years. Sam is a fantastic deck hand. The boat... More
