We went on an eight hour fishing trip 25 miles out. First time deep sea fishing for my 14 year old son, and second time for my wife and I. Captain Dustin and mate Al worked hard the entire time finding fish. We landed five nice Mahi Mahi and were close on a couple more. Fishing is not catching - any trip will have slow times so have the right expectations going in. We had a great day on the water and caught some beautiful fish!

Deep sea fishing was a bucket list dream for my son and I.
Dream shattered and never want to do again! The captain is rude and has no personality.
Acted as if we was more of a bother then anything. Didn't really talk to us and if he did it was to tell us what we couldn't do which was everything. You book these things to get a experience. Instead of giving the experience we was not aloud to do anything but reel in a little and done. Couldn't even hold our catch well their his deck hands catch cause he did everything to baiting, casting, finishing reeling ut in , taking it off the hook and holding it for his picture. We paid them to fish.
Booked a 6 hr trip but after we felt like more of a bother we decided to cut the trip short and he still asked for full payment and tip!

We are extremely sorry about your experience. Responding now because just seeing this today. I had no idea that's the reason you wanted to come home early. The guys for our second trip said they asked you how it was when you walked by them and you said it was terrible. We figured you wanted to come home early because it was hot and slow shark fishing and the sharks weren't big enough and because you and your family didn't bring anything to eat or drink maybe? Offered water and anything else we had to eat and drink. I know your one son was hungry cause he ate 2 personal sized bags of chips. Touching and holding Spanish mackerel, bluefish, and sharks are not something we let our customers hold due to sharp teeth and the possibility of getting hurt. When you asked me what the balance was I said 400.00 and the tip goes straight to Al the mate. So I didn't ask you for the tip and a tip was not given . My guys on the second trip of the day had a great time and kept saying I can't believe that guy said it was terrible on the morning trip and we caught less than morning trip. Also while trolling and shark fishing we don't have the people hold on to a fishing rod while waiting for a bite. Once again we are truly sorry you all didn't have a good trip.

My girlfriend and I went offshore with Captain Dustin Lorah in September.
We caught 5 mahi and 7 false albacore. The captain stayed persistent in trying to get us on some fish. He and the mate were easy-going. It made for a great first experience. We are planning to go offshore with Over-Board Sportfishing twice this summer.

My wife & I chartered a 12 hour fishing trip with Captain Dustin Lorah of the Over-Board sport fishing charters

I caught a nice Mahi, we trolled many spots, had chases on the trolling lures but only managed 1 Mahi.

Went to a few Wrecks & fished them for flounder, sea bass.
Caught a few flounder that were an inch or half an inch short

Caught 16 keeper sea bass & a sea robin, yep, I tried a sea robin broiled.
Andrew Zimmern is Correct, they are Not a trash fish, they are a very good tasting white flesh fish.

Our trip with Dustin was Memorable.

My wife said the Next day "Are we fishing with Dustin next year, I like charters better then party boats"

So, looks like this year is going to be an 8 hour trip.

We were in OCMD the fist weekend of June this year, met with Dustin for dinner 2 nights

Nice Captian, Folks, he does go out of his way to try to get the fish!

When it comes to fishing, gotta remember not every day is a good bite!!

But, a bad day fishing is better then a bad day at work!

Relaxation it was for both of us & we got to see many different sites way off shore!
