    The night before I was scheduled to go out we received a call from the company that they overbooked. We rescheduled but it threw the date towards the end of the week which was also the end of vacation. On the rescheduled date we arrived at 5:30AM only to be told it would need to be reset because of weather. I felt like we should have been called about the weather delay rather than waiting for us to arrive. There was no mention of sorry about the overbooking, or inconvience to our plans. The actual trip was okay, not awesome but good.

    Hi Russell, Sorry again for the scheduling issues. We had to move around our boats due to personal reasons with our captains. Of course, we can't do much about weather and the trip you were on was cancelled last minute. We rather be safe than sorry when it comes putting our customers out on the water. Thanks again for your review and we hope to see you back in the future.

    Hi Adam, We are sorry to hear about your experience. We did have some difficulty with the equipment and had to move everyone from that trip to other future trips which led to limited availability. It is typical on these trips to fish at more than one location, we move based on what is showing on our equipment to get you to the most successful trip possible. When we left the dock, conditions were fine for fishing, but we are in Florida and storms come up randomly and fast. We did have issues with a pump, which we fixed and we apologize for the smell. Please reference this review so that we may offer you a discounted trip in the future. Thank you for your honest feedback.

    This trip sucked.

    Worst trip of my life. I thought I was going to die (stayed out despite approaching electrical storm). Kids weren't able to fish because the equipment was too difficult for 11 and 8 year olds. Bathroom was a special kind of disgusting. Originally booked for Tuesday, but moved for "mechanical issues". Turns out others were moved off of Tuesday for all kinds of different reasons (just be honest next time). LOL... There will never be a next time. I feel completely taken advantage of!!!

    Hi todd, We are sorry to hear about your experience and deeply apologize about your experience. To be honest, you were moved because the passing of our owner that caused some scheduling issues. We also had some minor mechanical issues that needed to be addressed, but are now resolved. Thats not your problem, but you asked for the truth. When we left the dock, conditions were fine for fishing, but we are in Florida and storms come randomly fast. We did have issues with a pump, which we fixed. We apologize for the smell. It was just a lot of unfortunate events all at once. Please reference this review so that we may offer you a discounted trip in the future. Thank you again for your honest feedback.

    Best Fishing Trip Ever!

    This was the best deep sea fishing trip that I have ever been on. The only complaint we had was that the bait was not fresh and was hard to put on the hook. But when we did get it on the hook, the fish were very cooperative. I think in the end we caught about 35 fish. The crew was very attentive and knowledgeable. Great Trip!

    awesome fishing trip

    My family ranging in ages from 15 to 65 had a great day of off shore bottom fishing. The crew was awesome and were very knowledgeable and informative about life in the ocean. The captain took us to several sites about 20 miles offshore where the fishing was awesome. We caught several different species and the crew filleted the fish and bagged it and placed it on ice for us very quickly. This was our second time out with this crew and when we return we will definately book with them again. Their 40 years of experience is obvious and we would highly recommend this trip for anyone interested in catching lots of fish.

    6-Hour Deep Sea Fishing Trip

    The fishing trip felt like it turned into just a boat ride, I don't believe we had to ride 2 hours out just to catch some fish. The 20 ounce weight is way too heavy, the last deep sea fishing we went on only had 8 ounce weights on the same type of rods and reels, and that got the job done. It felt like I was reeling in a dead body, and plus with it going down to the bottom it's even harder. I think the announcements should be made before we leave the dock and not while we riding out, because of all the waves and the boat swaying from side to side.

    Hi Shakiella, Thank you for your review and feedback. The reason we have to ride out 1-2 hours is because fish do not bite well at shallow depths during Summer. Fish are sluggish and don't react well and that's why we must get into deeper water. The 20 ounce weight is fairly standard. With the strong currents, the lighter weights don't go down fast enough and miss the reef. It is somewhat tiring to reel in from 100 feet down, but we recommend taking breaks or ask the deck hand for help. I would suggest doing an inshore charter on lighter tackle on your next trip if it was too much. Thank you again for your review and going fishing with us!!

    Tropical Winds with Captain Mike 7/20

    We booked the 2pm 6 hour party boat fishing trip with Olin Marler on Tropical Winds Charter boat. We had a blast!!!! The first spot was so so and we caught a few, but the last spot of the day was it! We caught about 10 mingos and several other fish including trigger and a shark looking thing. Crew did a good job and stayed close with my kids when they needed help. Hung out with captain in the wheelhouse and learned a little about ocean fishing. Needless to say, we'll be back!
