March being just outside the peak marlin season,it was worth a try.Unfortunately with bad weather early March the fishes have moved on.You maybe luckier another time Mr Stuart, it’s hard being a marlin fisherman when the targeted fishes do not want to show up.Luckily we did not get back bare handed thanks to the 3 big skipjack tunas .....

Had two fantastic trips with this very efficient crew on their family owned boat. Nothing was too much trouble and they were very knowledgeable. Managed to land a blue marlin and a black marlin was almost on board but unfortunately got away at the last minute. Thoroughly enjoyed the trips and would certainly recommend this boat and crew to family and friends alike.

Ended the day with 3 Dorado. We really appreciate all effort from Billy and his Crew. We have an amazing experience and had lots of fun. We had a couple of Marlin bite but failed to secure the hook. The crew tried many different methods and lures to entice more marlin bites.

We had lots of conversation on board.  Although we are new to big game fishing, Billy and his crew guide us through the trip. We learnt a lot throughout this journey.

We even witness the marlin jumping out of the water! We recommend this skipper if you are looking for a friendly and helpful guide! They even get to keep a Dorado for dinner
