Reviewed November 30, 2011

We went out Sunday & Wednesday. Each time the crew went all out to put us on the fish. Sunday we caught black grouper,mahimahi & lost a big shark. That shark fight was awesome. Today we also caught mahimahi & sail fish. We had A little sail on early. Then later that day we had 3 sail fish at 1 time . This was the best fishing trip ever. Thanks to captan joe & mate galon.

Well, Your split charter on DIRTY BOAT is right around the corner. I guess we'll have to go after that shark again because we landed everything else last year. That joke is going to get and released this time!
Thank you for your review. I believe you were my first. I also want to thank you for opening my eyes to Tripadvisor because it has become an invaluable tool for my business.

See you soon,

“Awesome fishing charter”
Reviewed November 30, 2011

If you like fishing with friendly and knowledge people this s the charter for you. We had an awesome time on our first full day charter and decided to do a half day the following day. Capt Joe and mate Gaylon were terrific. The cartered to the fishing we wanted to do and we caught dolphins (mahi mahi), groupers and mutton snappers. Came home with plenty of fish and a great experience. Thank you to both of them for making our anniversary an unforgettable one!
