Horrible deep sea fishing

Horrible deep sea fishing
about 1 year ago
We booked a 4 hour excursion costing more then $700. I brought my 4 year old son who has been begging to go deep sea fishing for 6 months ever since he found out we were going to Florida. I understand that fishing is not guaranteed. I have been on several excursions. In some of them we caught a lot of fish, and others we caught only a couple. This trip we only caught 2, and they were both trash fish. The biggest problem was the captain. He had no interest in being there, and that was obvious. Right off the bat before we even left the dock, he told us if at anytime we wanted to quit he would bring us back. Once we were out there he threw the lines out to catch bait and just left us to try to figure it out. We only caught 3 bait fish. Then we started trolling with lures. After 3 hours he decided to troll with the live bait. That is when we caught the 2 fish. I told him on many occasions I was not concerned with catching big fish I would just like to catch something for my son. I told him we did not anything to keep, we were just there for the experience. I asked if we could try bay fishing or anything else to just try to catch something. He just kept trolling. My issue is that he would not try anything different or communicate with us what was going on or what we could try. He just threw the lines out and trolled. On 3 different occasions he reeled the line in to find out there was no bait or lure left on it. If at the very beginning if he just told us that it was too rough and offered to give us a partial refund I would have been OK with that. The very least he could have done is stopped and said this is what is going on, would you like to try something different. He just trolled and did not interact with us at all, or give us any options. His plan was to go out and do the bare min, get the 4 hours over and drop us off.

We take a trip on this boat every year and Capt Steve and Zach never disappoint us! Booking is always easy, we get an email and texted confirmation booking thru Tripshock. On this trip we really wanted to catch some triggerfish so we booked a 6hr morning trip. Parking behind Brotula's was easy and the boat was ready for us to board. Your trips are always half travel time, half fishing time so plan accordingly and think smart about what you want to catch and what's in season. You can go to the myfwc.com website to check out the chart. Anyways, we caught some live bait just out of the pass and then traveled for a bit. We moved fishing spots a few times and it wasn't long before we had our limit of triggerfish, white snapper and mingo snapper. Since we still had some time left, Steve asked if we wanted to catch some "photo worthy fish" so we headed over to a hot spot and caught some nice gag grouper, red snapper and amber jack! We couldn't keep them because they weren't in season but they were super fun to catch and we got some great pics out of it. Steve and Zach are always professional, a ton of fun, and they explain things so you can understand them. We are already planning our trip for the Destin Fishing Rodeo in October!
Just ok

Our experience was just ok. Our captain (I think his name was Josh, but we were never told or introduced) did not explain anything. We spent a lot of money on this trip for it to be just “ok”. Not recommended for any age kids. We did, however, get to catch 2 sharks.

6 hour bottom/trolling

The captain was a really good dude and friendly. Put us on fish pretty much all day. Caught a lot of stuff that was out of season and had to throw back but not his fault. While everyone was able to reel in fish. Would have liked to fish for game fish a little longer. Went to two spots for amberjack and only tried for about 5-10 mins each. While we did catch little fish all day, I did want to do some trolling, I brought it up to him and he just said that it’s been one of the worst years for trolling. Even if it has been, I still paid for trolling and expected to do a little. Really wanted to fight some actual fish. Could have gotten on a party charter for much much less for the kind of fishing we did. Everyone had a good time though and that’s all that really matters.
