“Good trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

My sister and I enjoyed our trip and found Captain Walter and 1st mate Andrew helpful but they certainly could have used some help for the size of the crowd.
We moved around a lot looking for someplace where everyone was catching fish. Early in the day I caught a very nice red snapper and my sister caught a lane snapper. I also caught and released a small red grouper.
But after catching these fish early we caught nothing but many others started catching. They started helping to ensure everyone caught something. We were supposed to rotate around but most of the fish were biting in the back for the second half of the day and we were on the side but were able to try the other side but no room to get to the back of the boat where everyone was catching fish. BUT we didn't need more, just wanted to catch some more...
Took the fish to Lazy Days to have them prepared and it was awesome!!!
Overall it was a good day.

“If you're not the back go home empty!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

I have been to the Miss Islamorda and end up with mixed reviews. This year I went early bto make reservation to get the cherished stern fishing spot and was told they rotate positions now so everybody gets a shot at good fishing. Didn't like it at first but after thinking about it I thought it was only fair to everyone dropping the $65. In brief no rotation, poor service by deck hands, deck hands paying attention more to buddies, one deck hand went down recovering from a weekend something half the trip. Have to say I never have had a bad experience on the Marathon Lady. Sorry to see this because last year was good.

“Great Fishing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2012

Enjoyed another beautiful weekend fishing on the Miss Islamorada. Captain Ben and First Mate Will treated us very well and and kept us moving to get into the fish. We caught lots of different types of fish including yellow tail, grunts, hog fish, mangrove snappers, bonita and even a random barracuda and sail fish. Its always a great day out on the water with the Miss Islamorada!

“ALL DAY FISHING #1”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

after fishing in florida for 45 years i can honestly say "this is one of the best driftboats in the keys
not only does the captain care what each individual catches but he will cast a line for them and teach them how to float line or chumball for yellowtails or whatever is eating that day.
captain ben and his mate are the coolest in the area i have NEVER heard a foul mouth on the boat or off the boat for that matter. this is a great boat for kids and family... no question !
. it does take a long time to get the hang of yellowtailing either by chumball or just floating a line down with the chum.please be patient it doesnt happen over night.
Some customers fish that boat all year long. i fished 1 up on the side on the opposite side of the current and caught as many or more fish than anyone on the stern or the other side.
i recommend this boat to all fisherman. remember folks most of these guys who work these boats are trying to make a living....and the only way for them to make money is to put fish in the boat. !
fish - on

most importantly is to have fun it is a party boat
