    Good time, poor fishing

    The trip was good, crew was very helpful, ride was nice, fishing was not. We kept moving around searching for fish and didn’t have much time actually fishing. When we were catching, most of the fish weren’t large enough to keep.

    Gulf Fishing Trip-Gulf Breeze-Capt. John Gibson

    Shop around a little. I didn't really feel welcomed on this trip. I almost felt like I was bothering the crew for even going. The crew was basically going through the motions. To be fair to the lady crew member, she seemed the friendliest and the most willing to help despite the captain chewing her out as soon as she stepped on board. The other deckhand would cut your fish loose without saying a word or reason. Later claiming that we were at our limit but they weren't keeping track. ... read more

    You get what you pay for

    Went out for red snapper and only caught small white snappers. You’re on a boat with 25 plus other people and paying only $70 per trip so expectations were low to begin with. We took a 6 hour trip, 2 hours to get out there and 2 hours to go back in shore. That leaves us 2 hours of fishing time, of that time we probably spent another hour worth of time bouncing from spot to spot. The captain does this on purpose so one area doesn’t get overfished. Realistically a 6 hour trip you can expect an hour of fishing time..... the crew is nice and helpful so tip them when u go. We took home 12 baby fish.

    2 hour tour

    Overall, it was great. We caught a ton of fish and the mates on the boat were fantastic. The captain has a pretty awful temper. Outside of the boat he seems to be a nice guy, but he was pretty gruff in the boat and there were some words exchanged with other boats. The most disappointing thing about the whole tour was that we drove for 2 hours to get to a fishing spot, fished on and off for 2 hours (at one point we just sat in one spot and let the dolphins take our bait), then it took two hours to get back. I wish we had more time fishing. The fish were great and we really did catch a lot. Probably 40 between the 4 of us. And everything was cleaned afterward (you had to reclean afterward, but a good start). We will definitely do it again, just wish there was less of a drive.

    Just OK

    I had fun with my Brother in law on this charter. However whenever the fish would start biting they would say we are moving on to the next spot as soon as fish would start biting again we would have to real the line in and move on to the next spot. We caught about 10 pounds total of red snapper that's about it. Probably wouldn't take this charter again.

    Son had fun

    When you take a six hour charter plan on fishing less than half of that! Drove 1 1/2 hour out and bounced between 3-4 spots just to catch small fish. Threw 3 times as many back as we kept. Biggest fish might have been a pound, might have been. Crew did a great job though. Just thought there would be more fishing and not just a lot of small fish. You are fishing for the small fish to catch as many as possible.

    Fishing trip

    Advertising for a 6 hour fishing trip is a little misleading for anyone looking to book a trip. I made reservations for my husband for his first ever trip to Florida only for him to be a little disappointed. Nowhere did I read did it say you only fished for an hour and a half to two hours. I understand there's travel time to get to the fishing spot but when it's advertised as 6 hours of fishing it's kind of disappointing. So we'll know in the future what to expect.

    Not as I had hoped

    We had gone on the Gulf Breeze boat on a Monday and the crew was friendly and very helpful so we went again on Thursday on the Tropical Breeze. The crew was not nearly as helpful nor very quick to help with twisted lines or to get fish off. One of the hands seemed more interested in smoking on the back than anything else. Luckily, he was not our main guy for our quadrant of the boat. Also, luckily/unluckily, we only caught 3 fish that were keepers. Captain Steve seemed to have problems getting us to fish as we must have moved 10 times in a 4 hour cruise. Some of that had to do with dolphins stealing our fish. I personally had two fish stolen from my line. The line bent very far over then went straight and nothing was on the hook. We did get away from the dolphins but could not seem to get... read more

    February Outing 2018

    My WRONG for not checking the fish in season, all we were allowed to peek were little 8"ers (bait fish) and the nice fish went back but the crew was good; cost about $103.00/lb for the two lbs of fish meat.

    Thanks for coming out with us! We also wished we could've kept all of what you were catching, but we simply can't do much about was is in season. You can always check out the Florida Wildlife Commission's website for up to date information, or feel free to call us. Thanks for letting us know about the crew! We appreciate hearing how well of a job they did so we'll be sure to let them know. Hope you come out again with us when there's more in season! Olin Marler
