We had an excellent time on our deep sea fishing trip. The crew was a blast! They worked very hard to ensure the experience was great. Our captain communicated with crew through the entire trip to be sure we were catching, if we weren't he wouldn't waste anymore time at that spot. Due to red snapper being 'out of season' unfortunately we had to throw a lot back. We only went home with about 1 lb of fish between the 2 of us, but that's part of 'fishing.' Many of the people on the boat got sick, I would highly recommend reading the instructions/suggestions provided for the trip and bringing motion sickness medication (even if you think you don't need it.) Overall, this was an excellent trip at a great price!!Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

been out deep sea fishing over 10 times and it was definitely the worst of the 10. 9 out of 10 people was sick and captain should never have taken us out with water so rough. 6 to 8 foot waves. very little fish was caught. clearly they were out to make the money and not benefit of the fisherman..but great staffVerified TripShock!

Hi Joe, Thank you for your review and feedback. We are sorry to hear about your experience. Although it was rougher than normal, we did not encounter 6-8 foot seas on this trip, but more along the line of 3-5ft (6-8 foot seas sustained would be a hazard). Deep sea fishing isn't always smooth waters. There isn't enough calm days in a year to make a living for a charter business. We ask that our customers always be prepared for choppy conditions, but we will never put our customers in dangerous seas. It's best to check the sea conditions or call us in advance if you are concerned about this type of fishing experience. We will do our best to accommodate our customers. Thank you again for our review and thank you for the comment about our staff.

The trip pretty much went as it was supposed to. The waters were a bit rough, and the captain didn't spend a lot of time on a site if the fish weren't biting like mad. He was moving quite a bit looking for a good bite. The crew were friendly, but not the greatest at customer service. There were 5 of us in our group and we caught a few fish, the service afterwards was the greatest lacking. The fillet job they did on the fish was pathetic, the fish was full of bones. I was debating on the tip amount, but after I got home and cooked the fish I felt I definitely over tipped.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

Hi Jeff, Thank you for the review and sorry about the rough seas. I'm glad to hear the crew was friendly and the trip went as expected. I understand the fish can be 'boney' after it is processed. However, when the crew is filleting as many fish as they do, they can't spend too much time picking out bones. We suggest going back through the fish by hand or with a knife and picking out the bones. Sometimes there are more than others. The small fish are very difficult to clean and that's where we see the most bones. Thank you again for your honest review and hope to see you back again.
Air conditioned cabin when it gets a little too hot.
Reeling up a a few mingo snapper on the first spot.
rack full of red snapper!
Another big catch from Olin Marler.
We do some trolling going to and from the fishing spots.
Just about ready to drop our lines in the "honey hole".
Two big red snapper at one time!!!
