Showed up at 8 am… Left closer to 9…. Told I had to buy beer for good luck… Almost struck and other boat going under the draw bridge… Then told I had to pay for bait… He didn’t have any money… Coughed up 20 .00 to pay for 50 bait fish that I used 4 of… Then painfully got a mile off shore.. Took over 30 min… By no means a fast boat… Seemed like it was gonna sink…To 200 ft… Trolled for a hour or so… Caught nothing… Then told he had another client.. So we had to head in… The rear of the boat smelled of exhaust… Was getting carbon monoxide toxic… His 11 yo son did most of the driving
The pictures he sent me before the trip to show what he caught… We’re very dated… Never really got a straight answere what he caught… This just seemed like a scam… Very unprofessional… Got charged full rate… Ever after I had paid a deposite…
Save your money… Look elsewhere

You can always tell the miserable clients with zero personalities from the start. The only true part of your delusional account of your trip was the date. ..other than that we’ll not much.  THE REAR OF OF BOAT SMELLED SO BAD BECAUSE OF YOUR BODY ODOR…even the crew couldn’t believe a doctor would smell that bad…I’d try stronger deodorant!  You booked a half day excursion which you received an hour more because on this day we tried to get you a,fish but some days they aren’t around..that’s fishing. I think tho if we would of caught a cooler full it wouldn’t be enough for an individual like yourself. Thank god we don’t get many uptight stiff no emotion people onboard like you.After 40 yrs of chartering you made the top 10 list doc. Even your wife warned me about you before we started fishing….speaks volumes
