If you want to pay for the fuel so that two old men can catch fish, this is the trip for you. The captains buddies were on the back of the boat and the captain backed them up on the ledge where they could catch fish by casting a spinning reel over the ledge while the rest of us were left high and dry. 10 fish were caught by two fishermen, you guessed it. the captains buddies. We put together a trip through this web site and I met three other strangers. All 4 of us caught next to nothing. The mate rarely had bait available and I had to cut my own bait several times. Nice fish were caught, problem is none of the paying customers caught any of them. I have been out probably 30 times over the years and I have never experienced a scam like this. Avoid at all cost!!!!

We appreciate all reviews good and bad .
In this case you are complaining because you didn’t catch fish.The crew explained how to use the equipment and the fact that we were using circle hooks.Don’t jerk,just reel when you feel a bite.You and your group didn’t listen and were told multiple times.When you don’t listen you get the results you experienced.Why do you think the other anglers caught fish?They listened.They paid their fare,just like you,but they fish twice a week with us and they listen.As far as the bait,there was plenty,both squid and strip bait available.
We generally get reviews like yours when anglers don’t catch fish or get seasick.
If you listen to the crew you generally will catch your dinner.
