My Father started us boys fishing when we were 5 years old in the lakes around home and moved us up to the ocean fishing at about 9 years old. We have been doing it ever since with the same passion we had when we were kids!

Troy and Will worked hard, but it was not the type of fishing I enjoy. Will did all the hooking and all we did was reel. If you want to fish, make sure you can actually fish.

We are very sorry you were not happy with your trip we worked very hard gave you and your party extra time on your trip we do the hooking do to there was limited amount of bait for number one the tackle we use is fluorocarbon and fishing in seas like we were within feet of a tower you have to know what you are doing to catch these fish on the amount of time you have at the tower site . We spent 2 hours trying to get you guys bait the. Ugh this before your trip the another 2 hours during your trip to end up with a total of 11 baits to catch 6 fish so you almost have to make everyone count and on top of that for the amount of time to do these trips to the tower you only had a hour and 15 min to catch and start back with storms the hole way in our path . We caught you guys a limit of amberjacks plus released 1 due to over the limit . These rigs we fish with every time we get cut off from a fish pulling into tower do to angler doesn’t know what to do it cost the boat about 50.00 I. Fluorocarbon and hook and lead and terminal tackle that’s why we hook and pass the rod unless the angler is a avid angler and is familiar with this type of fishing . Also if you remember during the trip we gave 2 of your guest the rod and tryed to let them hook a fish and they were not getting anything till my mate took the rod and hooked up . Sorry for your experience but when we go as far as we did with your group to spend personal time catching bait then gave your party a extra hour on your trip at no extra charge and caught limit of fish for you guys pretty disappointed in your review . Thanks and best wishes

It was a good trip. I chartered the boat for my father-in-law and me. I was our first time ocean fishing. It was a bad day for catching fish on a half-day trip because the water temperature was too cold. We should’ve spent a full day and traveled as far as the Gulf Stream where the water is warm and the fish go to school. The water was very choppy, but the air was warm and the sun was shining. I learned that the wind had just changed directions after blowing the opposite way for weeks. The captain taught me about the weather causes for the water temperature and how that affects fishing conditions. That was educational. The crew smokes Marlboro lights, which I begrudge the smell of, but they probably would’ve stopped if I asked. My father-in-law ended up catching one tuna that we could take some pictures with, which made it rewarding enough to justify the overall cost of the experience.

Thank you for your business sorry fishing was very slow and ocean was choppy just so you know out of 11 boats only 7 fish were caught total that morning and so all our present customers who read our reviews we never smoke or have smoked in the vessel it’s not allowed even when we don’t have passengers aboard we only smoke outside and like always if you have a request please let us know so we can make your trip as enjoyable as possible . Also to all our future customers these 4 hour trips they are designed to give you a few hours on the water with your family there is only about 2 hours of fishing time by time you do your load and unload and travel to and from the ocean so this does not leave you very long to travel very far to go where fish are if they are not close . They are not designed to go catch big game fish . Normal catches are bluefish and Spanish mackerel in the 1-2 pound range and is a good trip for a few hour of family time on the water . Thank you again
