    Fine

    Trip was just ok... a little too crowded... spent the first anchor untangling fishing lines than actual fishing... seemed to spend too much time moving the boat than fishing... 6.5 hours of boat travel for 1.5 hours of actual fishing

    Above and beyond!

    The crew went out of their way to make a great experience for our group of 17. They were more than accommodating for our different needs. Fishing started out slow but they kept searching until we found the magic spots where deep sea fishing goes from nauseating to exhilarating. Thank you for your hard work!

    Hoped for better fut fun

    The 2 adults enjoyed the experience though we did not catch as many or as big of fish we hoped to. A big disappoint was my grandsons first trip out and didn’t catch a fish and got seasick on top of that.

    Thanks for booking with us and sharing your experience. I'm sorry to hear that your grandson got sea sick on the trip, but at least you now he's prone to it to take precautions. We call ourselves the "Luckiest Fishing Village" for a reason, but there are those few that unfortunately don't have much luck. It's fishing, so there's really no way to offer a guarantee. I truly hope you all enjoyed your trip overall, and let us know if you're interested in-shore fishing trip next time you visit. That might be better for your grandson as the trips are shorter (2-3 hrs) and stay close to shore. Thanks again for sharing your feedback and hope to see you next time!

    Had a great time!

    Staff was excellent, and we had a great time! Everyone was very helpful and friendly, making the best of the tangles and things that are bound to happen with so many people on one boat. We caught several fish, and the captain was great at putting us right over them, or moving somewhere else if needed. I was definitely glad we went ahead and took the anti motion sickness medication, because even after being on the lake all the time and with how calm the water was, there was a lot of movement. The main draw of the Vera Marie was the bar, and the drinks were excellent! Overall, it was a very enjoyable trip, and I won't hesitate to book with Pelican Adventures again.

    Awesome Experience!

    Our first time deep sea fishing. We didn't know what to expect. Captain Mike and his crew were very helpful getting passengers situated, fishing lines untangled and fish off hooks. They were so friendly. We had a great first deep sea fishing experience!
