“Disappointing”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Deckhand worked hard, but only caught one fish. It seems like other boats around us did better. Nearby boat found fish sooner and caught 8 mahi mahi. I never touched a fishing pole. Disappointing!!!

I would like to thank you for your feedback and taking the time to express your feelings with us. I am glad to hear that your boat was able to land one fish and that you must have had a good experience otherwise than not being very succesful catching fish. It is unfortunate, but we have no control over how many fish a charter will catch or if they catch fish at all. All our captains can do is take you to the places where they know fish to be prevalent. It sounds as if your captain did take you to the right place since there was another boat near you catching fish. We surely do wish your boat caught more than one fish but unfortunately this is not a problem that we can resolve. In the fishing industry there are great days and there are slow days, that is just the nature of the industry. We do however hope that you will not fault us for this and take another charter with us on your next stop into Nassau. Thank you again for your feedback.

“Deep Sea Fishing in Nassau, Bahamas”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Our family are repeat customers of Born Free Fishing Charters for over the past 20 years. Captain Pinder and crew have taken us to the Exumas, Berry Islands, shark fishing numerous times, and around the Nassau reefs. Every time we are out in the ocean, we catch something different. Snapper, wahoo, yellow tail, grouper, barracuda, sail fish and of course our favorite, the catch and release of sharks. You will not be disappointed!
