Unfortunately I do not have much good to say about the experience. 1. Zero social distancing and covid-19 measures are being taken. Rather than limiting booking, they have full boats of people going out and it is not possible to socially distance. While they offer masks, they do not enforce wearing it. There was sanitizer on board. There were no temperature checks or covid questionnaires to make sure people arent experiencing any symptoms or didn't recently travel to high risk places. None of the crew wore masks. 2. Water was very choppy today when we went out, and at least 15 people on board became very ill, my husband included. Despite seeing that and despite his crew members asking him to to try to do something differently, the captain refused and continued to push through extremely rough water. I heard the workers on the boat telling each other that they told the captain but he wouldnt listen and that he was being stubborn. Of the 7 hours boat ride, he finally went to calm water for the last 1 hour after torturing the people on board for 6 hours. He could have easily gone to calmer water after seeing how many people felt sick and how rough conditions were outside, at least for 3 of the 7 hours. Once in calm waters all of perked up and were finally able to fish but he rushed us from location to location after that, so we barely got to fish for that last hour. 3. Despite some people being unwell, other people were allowed to walk around smoking. This is a public charter and I feel smoking should be prohibited considering other passengers may have asthma or other health conditions where smoke from cigarettes can exacerbate that. It also is very hard to bear the smell when you're feeling sea sick. Fishing is easy and fun, I only got to do about 20 minutes before I began feeling very sick because of the rough water, and then another 20 at the end. So 40 minutes of a 7 hour trip. I would do it with another company next time. This was not a pleasant experience for us nor does it seem safe given the lack of measures taken for the pandemic--which no matter how much people want to deny is still very much happening.

I had such a great time on this trip.Captain Jeff is awesome and his deck mates Kyle and “crazy” Eddie are so helpful and fun its like fishing with friends. They laugh and joke with you. Every time I've been out on the Midnight Bullet Fleet, everyone has caught fish. We caught 27 blue fish between us all. Will definitely be back again. I wouldn’t fish on any other boat. Since Captain Jeff has a smaller boat that uses less gas and wants you back on his boat another time, he’s not scared to bring everybody all over in search of the best spot with the most fish. I suggest you search for a coupon to save a few bucks. Thanks again guys for a great day!
