I saw the Red Snapper season had been extended and drove down from Atlanta with that in mind. No mention was made that this boat was only in Federal waters and you can't keep the Reds. Would have been nice to know. I was also informed while I was driving down there that the boat may or may not go out due to a lack of reservations. I would have fared better not making reservations and winging it. The reservations definitely limited my options. As for the boat, the crew couldn't have been friendlier and that includes the lady at the ticket booth. The captain was very focused on our coming home with fish and I got a stringer full. Very successful trip. They will not let you use your own gear which is another huge big factor to me. They want tourists to do it their way and cause no hassles for... read moreVerified TripShock!

Dan, ...Read more
Dan, Thank you for the feedback! Our booth girls, captains, deckhands and even the Tripshock booking agents are well versed in what is in season and what isn't. So we are sure if you had asked then any one of them would have clarified the Snapper regulations for you. We know they can be difficult to understand since they change every year (and sometimes twice a year!). The boat has to have a minimum number of paid passengers to run on any trip, year round. We have to make sure we can pay for fuel, our employees, etc before we can even leave the dock. Customers that chose to "wing it" may not always have a spot on the boat if it sells out. And if you're that person that waits to book then the trip may not go out if you would have been the deciding person for the minimum. That's why we always suggest reservations. We are VERY happy to hear you enjoyed your trip but we're a little confused about the tackle for tourists. Our customers are DEFINITELY allowed to bring their own poles and tackle if they wish. That's always been our policy and our captain's policies. We'll have a talk with the crew just to ensure the wrong information isn't being told to customers. We know just how important is it to have your "lucky rod" with you! Thanks for taking the time to write your review and giving us time to respond! We appreciate your business!

I have wanted my husband to take me deep sea fishing for years, and hecfinally booked an excursion. This was the best! The tour departed on time; a crew member tutored us on how to handle the rods and reels and to listen for the captain's signal to drop and pull up our lines. The crew was extremely helpful and informative. End result, we left the boat with lots of fish and we had a marvelous time catching them! I would recommend Olin Marler Fishing Cruises to everyone.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

What a great time. The four of us enjoyed the entire day. We saw dolphins jumping in the water. We caught 40 fish to take home. In addition we caught 10 fish that had to be thrown back because of size, out of season, or undesirability. Regardless it was fun landing them. The crew was great, very helpful and friendly. The ship was wonderful, clean and plenty large. The Gulf was a little rough, but a real pleasure. We highly recommend this deep sea fishing adventure.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

Better than expected! We did catch a bunch of 'trigger fish' and threw them back because they we not in season. Dolphins 'stole' a few others! But all in all, we cooked what we kept and had a great time. Would come back. Was a great value too.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

It was my family's first time experiencing deep sea fishing. The entire crew was very helpful and accommodating. Could've been because I was told the three of us caught more fish than the morning crew combined but I felt like they were there just for us. Wheater taking fish off, untangling line or the captain searching for the best spot it was great service. Will definitely be seeing them again! Thanks guys!Verified TripShock! Traveler Review
