    Great time!

    Was not sure what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised. We caught about 12 Vermilion Snapper and a Trigger Fish(had to put that back though, not in season) in 2 hours. Really a great time. Saw some dolphins. Crew was very helpful and friendly.

    The trip itself was ok.

    The trip itself was ok. The booking and all was as promised. The boat experience itself was not good. The bait was cut into too small of pieces and we're hard to put on the hook. There was only one type of bait (NO SQUID). The circle hooks were bent too much and not all reels had them. Those reels caught more fish. It was my daughters first trip and I was disappointed. She caught no fish and I caught only 2 small ones. I have done this many times and have always caught more fish. I attribute that to the bait and the hooks. The crew was excellent, but I will not go back on this boat.

    C.R, Thank you for the review! We're very sorry to hear that you're experience wasn't an excellent one. The bait is typically cut the same way each time with equal portions to spread amongst our anglers. Clearly if we have some fish/squid/shrimp that is smaller or larger we have to accommodate for that. The types of bait we use can also vary depending on what is in season and what our anglers have been catching. We have notified our general manager of the issues with the hooks and equipment to insure others don't experience the same issues. Thank you again for the feedback and we hope you'll try fishing with us again so that we can give you and your daughter some happier fishing memories.

    Destin fishing on the Gulf Breeze

    It was a cold morning the day before Thanks Giving day. The boat took a considerable time to arrive to our fishing destination. Once we arrived the sun was out and we were warmer. I was with my two daughters, 21 and 24 in age. The young one did not even want to fish. With the guidance of the captain my daughters caught more fish than I did. We saw several big dolphins, estimated 8-10 feet long. After a while we started catching fish, some big and some small. Actually the smaller ones were the tastier ones. We asked to keep the fish whole and just gut them. Next day we had a grill out for the fish. My older daughter made an asian fish soup. It was yummy. The grilled fish was so tasty. I should go back for fishing soon. My daughters loved the fishing trip too.

    Demetris, Thanks for fishing with us! It DOES take some time to get to the deeper water to go "deep sea" fishing but we are glad you were patient and caught so much! Our deckhands work for tips so they are happy to filet your catch however you like. Grilling them is DELICIOUS! Thanks again for fishing with Olin Marler and please come back soon!

    Destin, November 2014

    I booked this for my son and i--he is at a nearby AF base and i was visiting. Initial trip was cancelled due to low numbers. Rep called several times to give trip status updates. My son and I were able to reschedule and had a BLAST!!!! Crew was helpful, fishing was phenomenal and we caught 20+ fish. Would definitely use this charter again but would opt for a longer trip so we could fish even longer!!

    Had a great day. The crew was very polite and patient, and very responsive. Took home around 5 pounds of fish that my son and I caught. Will book again the next time we are in Florida.

  • Adrienne Brock Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA Oct 11 2014 12:08am

    I booked this deep sea fishing trip for me and my dad. He lives in Ga and has not been deep sea fishing in years. We had so much fun. The deck hands were great with helping everyone and cheering us on when we caught a fish. We caught 15 fish in all. They deck hands even took pictures of what we caught when we docked, and also cleaned and bagged our fish for us. The best part was seeing the sun rise early in the morning and also the dolphins following the boat back to the dock. I have tons of video and pictures to show the family. GREAT TRIP and GREAT PRICE.

    Awesome Time

    What a great fishing trip. Water was a little rough starting off, but what can you do. Crew was great; Friendly and Very patient with the first time fisherman. Everything was provided for us, and the crew even baited hooks for my wife. Once we got on the fish, we were catching them left and right. The crew cleans and bags what you catch too. Highly recommend this boat and crew again, this was our honeymoon and they maid it special for us.
