Waste of money

For starters, I own a 33 foot boat. I've captained large parties before. So I know a bit about this. I've also been on many deep sea fishing excursions. Our Captain was terrible. He didn't once say a word to us. He didn't introduce himself, didn't point out where the life jackets where, didn't even so much as look at us. And his deck hand was 17 years old and super green. Every once in a while, the Captain duck out of the bridge to yell at his helper about the rigs not being set correctly. To be fair, it was pouring rain and we had 10 foot swells to deal with. A major storm had been in place for about 12 hours. But the simple fact is that the Captain should have called off the trip. It was me and my three boys...ages 11, 9, and 7. We had no business being out there...and the Captain knew it. And judging by his older appearance, he knew there was no chance we'd catch a thing...which happened to be the case. We got tossed around for 2.5 hours...and I had to call it early because it was too dangerous with the rain, wind and swells. We got two bites the entire time and my boys didn't once even touch a fishing rod. $750...and didn't touch a rod on a fishing trip...what a colossal let down. It was a total joke and complete waste of $750. I will be sure to tell everyone one I know about this experience, the captain, and tripshock.

Been coming to this area the last 6 years and doing fishing trips. They were fair to awful. We hit the jackpot this year w Sweet William Boat Charters. Crew was excellent, helpful and knew where to go to get the fish. Caught several fish including a 50 lb Cobia. Will definately come back to Sweet William!!

Was good fishing. Only problem was the fish were small but plenty. We were told small hooks worked best and it did for small fish. I am not a fish expert but was left wondering if bigger hooks and bait might of landed us a bigger fish. All in all satisfied.

I would highly recommend Captain Bill and his First Mate Danny. We took the 8 HR trip and they made it absolutely wonderful! This will be a memory that my Son and I will cherish for the rest of our life. The boat was very nice and they were very polite, fun and all around awesome. We caught so many fish!! The Captain sure knows where to go. A shout out to Danny for being so helpful and informative....he knows his stuff and sure did a fantastic job at filleting our catch. We will be returning customers for sure. If you are looking to go out....book "Sweet William".....you will be well satisfied. Being with a Great Captain and Mate make all the difference....can't say enough about how much we enjoyed it. Looking forward to our next trip
