The offshore Bluewater Deep Sea fishing trip that my 15 year old son and I booked with Master Captain Bill and his First Mate Eddie on his boat Paradise was an absolute Joy for both my son and I we had an excellent time that checked all of our boxes for this trip both the Master Captain and First Mate we’re very knowledgeable, personable, kind and professional and made my son and I both feel welcome and at home. His boat Paradise has a nice unique set up for fishing utilizing the back swim platform to create some additional space used for fishing,  baiting and Landing the fish and there are plenty of Fish to land approximately 32 of them we had quite a few species ranging in size from 90-plus pounds to 20 some pounds. Unfortunately the weather was bad and cut our trip a little short forcing us to leave the dock a little later than initially planned but the Master Captain kept in eye on the weather conditions and coordinating with us safe window to leave Shore it was a bit bumpy but both my son and I felt safe and comfortable with Master Captain Bill and First Mate Eddie we had a fabulous time thank you for the lifelong memories and excellent father-son time.

I’ll say this:  There is no guarantee on Marlin or billfish because it is impossible to gauge their activity.  There IS, however, a guarantee that if you go on this charter you will not be disappointed.  About five fish in, we knew this wasn’t like the others. We went home stoked with tired arms. Use these guys, they are the real deal.
