Great trip- it was our 10th wedding anniversary and given all the travel limitations with Covid we decided to go deep sea fishing. We caught 8 big tuna and had a lot of fun on the water, especially with Captain Mark’s special reel that makes bringing them in so easy! His first mate was a great help and he and his wife were great helping us figure out how to get them home.

We chartered a four-hour near-shore trip during our Thanksgiving vacation and loved every minute of it! Our group of four included three adults and one child (ten years old). The boat was spacious (includes a living room and bathroom!), the fishing great, and the Captain and his mate were on top of their fishing game. It paid off and we were lucky enough to catch about sixty pounds of False Albacore which we took home and promptly cooked and ate. Delicious! We'll certainly charter the Fishin' Fannatic when we return to Nags Head in the Spring!

Scheduled a charter for offshore fishing for my family. Unfortunately Captain Mark Fann had to cancel our trip due to an overheating problem in his port engine. We understand things happen that are out of our control. However, when he canceled he promised to reimburse us for our paid in full trip. That hasn't happened. I contacted him and he said it should have been already been done. Now he no longer responds and we still have not been reimbursed two weeks later. Captain Fann is either a poor business man or a thief. I'm not sure which. In either case, I would recommend caution dealing with him and certainly not pay for a trip before it happens. We have also filed a dispute with the credit card company.

I just now saw this review. Your refund was processed as soon as your trip had been cancelled. When I spoke with you, I did advise per our credit card processing company that a refund could take anywhere from 3-15 business days depending on the issuing bank. I do take offense to being called a thief. I have been in the charter business for over 40 years and we have a great reputation. I am sorry that you feel that way.

My son‘s 16 birthday wish is to catch a mahi-mahi so I booked a trip with this charter in hopes to get out unfortunately the water was not so cooperative and we had to cancel the trip. Brenda was amazing!! She was so supportive and refunding the deposit back she is going to keep in touch with us to let us know when the seas calm down so I can rebook and get on the boat so exciting we cannot wait to experience this first class charter!!

I felt so bad that the weather was terrible. The mahi are slowly starting to show up, so hopefully we can get you and your son out on the water for that mahi soon.

2020 is an odd year. My Fiancé and I were supposed to be married May 16th but unfortunately had to postpone our wedding due to Covid-19. We decided to head out on a offshore charter and came across Fishin Fannatic and Captain Mark Fann. I spoke with the Captains wife and set everything up hoping we would be able to fish. Well at Midnight in 5-16-20 (the day we were supposed to be wed) the island reopened. We headed out with Captain Mark and his first mate Hunter and had an absolutely incredible time. They worked their butts off to find fish and catch them. I don’t know if you’ll find a better Captain to head out with so if you are considering a trip I would look no further!
