Deep Sea Fishing Charter Aboard The Sweet William III
Venture out to sea for a fishing journey of epic proportions aboard the Sweet William III. From 4 hour trips to...
Captain Bill and deckhand Curt was simply amazing. We took an 8 hour trip and went out about 30 miles out. We caught Mingos, Black Snapper, white snapper. We did catch some Red Snapper and Trigger fish but these were not in season so we had a some catch and release going on as well. We even reeled in a BULL Shark. It took several people reeling him in, he made it up to the boat, but got loose as he approached the back of the boat.A Big Thank you to Captain Bill and Deckhand Curt for making our fishing experience simply wonderful! I will be fishing with this captain again for sure!!! and also a BIG Thank you to Tripshock for booking me this charter and making it all happen!
For starters, I own a 33 foot boat. I've captained large parties before. So I know a bit about this. I've also been on many deep sea fishing excursions. Our Captain was terrible. He didn't once say a word to us. He didn't introduce himself, didn't point out where the life jackets where, didn't even so much as look at us. And his deck hand was 17 years old and super green. Every once in a while, the Captain duck out of the bridge to yell at his helper about the rigs not being set correctly. To be fair, it was pouring rain and we had 10 foot swells to deal with. A major storm had been in place for about 12 hours. But the simple fact is that the Captain should have called off the trip. It was me and my three boys...ages 11, 9, and 7. We had no business being out there...and the Captain knew it. And judging by his older appearance, he knew there was no chance we'd catch a thing...which happened to be the case. We got tossed around for 2.5 hours...and I had to call it early because it was too dangerous with the rain, wind and swells. We got two bites the entire time and my boys didn't once even touch a fishing rod. $750...and didn't touch a rod on a fishing trip...what a colossal let down. It was a total joke and complete waste of $750. I will be sure to tell everyone one I know about this experience, the captain, and tripshock.
Been coming to this area the last 6 years and doing fishing trips. They were fair to awful. We hit the jackpot this year w Sweet William Boat Charters. Crew was excellent, helpful and knew where to go to get the fish. Caught several fish including a 50 lb Cobia. Will definately come back to Sweet William!!
