I chartered 5 boats for a business event through Captain Taco. He was an absolute pleasure to work with and did a great job coordinating sandwich trays, snacks and beverages on our boats. We all had a great time - at least all the folks that took the Taco-strongly recommended Dramamine. The only negative was the onboard upsell where the crew tries to sell you a $2k taxidermy replica of whatever sharks you catch. There were multiple hard-sell attempts to my group. Other than that, you're sure to have a great experience! I'd definitely work with Taco again!

Real review, real experience: these guys don't mess around! I've been on my share of charters. I've had the guys who go out and dink around and end up shark fishing for an easy catch. Not these guys. We hit the grounds running. Live bait on kites. 2 sailfish (lost one), a couple bonita, and as we're about to head in, this monster yellow fin tuna hit the line. We fought for nearly an hour and a half. Captain Lou and crew Taylor were total pros. The captain helped me fight the fish by backing the boat down on the fish from Hollywood to North Miami Beach. Countless runs, 30 lb test, and we landed this 150 lbs yellow fin. For the first half hour, Taylor schooled me on the best technique, for the next hour, he was basically silent offering only assistance when the fish starting running again. It was surreal fighting this fish. Learning it's patterns. When we finally got in position, Taylor harpooned the fish, Captain Lou jumped from the fly bridge and the two of them gaffed the fish and wrangled him on board. The celebration was on. A fish of a lifetime for sure. Once on shore, Captain Lou carved him up and we now have enough tuna steaks for the next year plus! Great job guys!

Disappointed in the Hooked Up 2 crew and their effort. Minimal interaction and dialogue. Boring, not even the usual music. We had six fishers, experienced from other trips. Twenty year old daughter felt belittled and ignored. Two poles used, not the experience that other reviewers shared nor what we had expected. At one point the deck hand disappeared up top with the captain for an hour leaving fishers alone. Hoped for more. A lot of money ($1200+) for a ride with a duo lacking engagement or attempt at entertainment. I texted owner this review prior to posting and did not any response. Soured on charters now. At least with a party fishing boat, each fisher has a hook in the water.

DocDeb thank you for taking the time in helping us improve in our costumer service. Here at the Hooked up fishing team we take great pride in our costumer satisfaction and bear in mind we are dealing with Weather Fish and people and it can be tough at times.So we are very selective as to who works with us and our costumers. The reason I'm pointing this out is because the one to blame here for your disappointment in your fishing trip is ME Captain Taco. Over the years we have developed a great following and due to Covit we have so much more people coming down to South Florida I kinda dropped the ball and I just kept getting trips and lost sight of the fact that I was burning my crew out. Witch is why I'm thanking you for this low star review. This is the first bad review my son Lou has ever got and yep he is the best to fish with down here. When I finally got your text I thought I owe you a big Thank You.I do wish I would had seen your text before you wrote the review but all the same thank you. Captain Lou and Captain Taylor are a blast to fish with and probably 2 of the most personable guys fishing these waters. And yes they feel awful but never the less please feel free to give us another shot I'm sure you will have a great time and we would love the opportunity to make up to you. Captain Taco
