    deep sea fishing trip

    We showed up for our trip, checked in, we were a little late in getting out on the water. We traveled out 2 hrs before we ever got to fish. That means we only fished 2 hrs, then back in 2 hours. I would liked to have had more fishing time, but we did get out, and we caught some descent fish. So all in all it was a good time, and we went home with fish. I enjoyed my first deep sea trip and so did my fiance that went with me. The crew of the boat was very knowledgable and a great help. I would go again.

    Catching 75 Fish

    This fishing trip was epic. We had 13 in our party from age 12 to 66 and everyone caught fish and had a great time. The crew was marvelous by helping bait hooks, take off fish and keeping everyone happy. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone who goes to Destin. Wonderful time!!!

    Outstanding experience, 8 fish caught, helpful crew! Be informed, read other reviews!

    Would definitely recommend this to anyone, especially if they have read the other reviews and know what to expect: 1.5 hour + each way getting to and from fishing location; you are DEEP sea fishing, so there is a lot of reeling (over 100 cranks each time you cast); it is fishing, you may or may not catch anything; the weather can cancel a trip, so plan it early in your stay so you can reschedule at a later date, which is what we did and it worked out okay. Almost every group on our trip did catch something, though. My son and I caught 8 (my son 7 with 6 keepers, and me 2). The crew were very helpful during the whole trip, and cleaned, filleted, and bagged our fish after the trip. We ate them last night and they were delicious! Most importantly, my son and I had a great first time deep... read more

    We had a blast, ready to go again.

    It was a great experience we enjoyed it to the max. We will be going again, and again. It was worth the money we payed, the Captain and deck hands were friendly and helpful.

    Good Deep Sea Fishing

    Crew was obviously experienced and talented. Many on the trip caught lots of fish. My son and I had caught no fish at "half time." It would have been great for one of the deck hands to help us figure out how to be more effective, but their focus continued to be on pulling off fish for those who were catching more. We ended up with three nice fish by the end. Also, we were instructed to show up at 5am for the 6am start time. Ended up waiting for the boarding at 5:40. If people are going to be instructed to show up early it would be nice to go over the shipboard instructions at that time while it is quiet rather than crowding around the stern during the noisy transit. At the end of the voyage the crew did a great job of cleaning the catch to take home, however, they did it in a... read more

    Hi John, Thank you for the review and the feedback. We are glad you had a good time! Party boats are a little tough to be attentive since we have up to 35 customers on the trip. If you are looking for a more personal experience, we do recommend the Semi-Private trip that is less people, but the price is about double. You make some great points to consider and we'll let the crew know. Thanks again for fishing with us and we hope to see you back soon!

    6 hour fishing trip

    This was a 6 hour guarantee to catch fish to keep the crew had no idea where to go and my husband spent 6 hours on the boat and came back extremely disappointed not one fish in 6 hours. The guarantee is a joke no refund only "Thats how it goes sometimes" I would be very careful which boat you choose it was. BIG waste of money. Very disappointed.

    Hi Susan, Thank you for your review. Although we appreciate your business and apologize we didn't meet your husbands expectations, we NEVER guarantee fish on our vessels. It does not say this on our TripShock listing nor do we verbally advertise it on the harbor. Although there are many more good days than bad, fishing is fishing and not catching. The day your husband fished was slow for most of our captains and we will never be perfect. Thank you again for booking with us.

    Deep Sea Fishing

    Took the family, crew was great. Only drawback was two drunks were allowed on and one was all over my children the majority of day so my husband didn't get to fish much and didn't catch one. He had to use his body constantly to shield the drunk guy. Disappointed bigtime in that and the cursing that went along with it. Really should've gotten my husband's ticket cost returned since he didn't get to fish hardly any. Yes, we did tell crew. They knew of the people from the day before. Again, it's too bad we had to suffer for it.

    Hi Heather, Thank you for the review and feedback. I'm sorry to hear about the intoxicated guests on the boat with you. Did your husband alert the crew of this? They are trained to handle these situations so you can enjoy your time on the boat. We hope you come back next time and fish with us. Thanks again!
