Few things are worst than being caught up in a scam. Called being “cheap” by Lew because there was no tip to 1st Mate. How come locals pay less than $50. and because I was a “Snowbird” paid $125.? Info on this was confirmed by others on charter. Yeah! It’s Captains privaledge but does seem unfair. Add the fact the Mate took 2/3s of my catch. Then theirs a filthy boat, non working refrigerator and a poor, unfriendly attitude from Ms Joan’s two man crew. Time of departure was said to be 8:30 but Captain changed without notice an earlier departure. Irony here was I liked Captain Lew but he needs to clean up his act. After leaving boat he phoned and said I forgot to tip First Mate. I blamed him for this fact I offered no gratuity. I was told not to return- that’s okay Captain, that’s OK.

Dear John,
We get good and not so good reviews both here and on other venues.We take all legitimate reviews seriously.However,not yours and here is why. 
You claim that other anglers paid less than $50 for their fare.You are absurd.everyone paid the same fare as you and your buddy did.Also learn to spell correctly.You were told before the trip how much to tip the crew,both by our booking service and by me,when you asked me.As far as your catch,you received every legal fish you caught plus some from the other anglers.Get your facts correct.You like many others who give negative reviews are essentially clueless about fishing in Florida.We know you caught giant cod when fishing out of Montauk,N.Y.as you told us,but not in this century.
You didn’t leave a tip for the mate because you are frugal.You sped out of our parking lot at breakneck speed so you didn’t think we would know you left no tip.When I called you I received some half baked response.
Also you met a couple of the anglers that were on the trip at the Cumberland Farms store when you were getting icecream and they told you how poorly you treated the crew.
We don’t need or want anglers like you and your buddy on our boats.Every charter business in the area has your name.
