Types of Fishing

Bottom Fishing: The most common way of fishing techniques, used to catch fish that are found near the sea floor. Each paid person will receive their own rod and reel.

Trolling: A method of fishing where one or more fishing lines, baited with lures or bait fish, are drawn through the water behind a boat. Each paid person will take turns reeling in the fish.

Check the ticket descriptions to see what type of fish you are likely to catch on each trip.

I cannot put into words to truly capture how horrible it was. They had the only spot that was elbow to elbow reserved for the crew to fish from. They threw all the too small non keepers caught by guests in the live well for the crew to use for bait with their fancy rigs (much different from the reels the guests got). The guest fishing it elbow to elbow and nothing but a complete tanglefest. I literally quit fishing almost as soon as we completed the two hour trip out to sea and just sat there captive, aggravated, and baking in the sun all day. If your idea of a good time is to take a miserable hot all day boat ride, undo tangles all day, and watch the crew fish then this is the place. Probably not necessary to mention, but no i did not catch a single fish. My wife and son caught four 6" bait fish for the crew and that was it. I got to spend my day baiting their hooks and untangling their lines. The "fishing" experience here is not what you're looking for.
