The crew were most knowledgeable and a fun time was had. The captain took us out onto the ocean where the mahi mahi was. We caught 5 large and 2 smaller mahi mahi, which was great.

We trolled the whole time. I booked a 7 hour trip and we were out for 9 and the first mate spent atleast 6 hours of it on top deck with the captain and only changed his bait tactic twice. They never tried anything different to turn us on any fish. All we heard was other people they knew weren’t catching anything either. I’ve never been so disappointed.  Ive never went on a $850 boat ride and not got some excitement from it. I will never book with this crew again and can’t recommend anyone to make the same mistake i did.

Well Steve….I would first like to say that we talked to you the day before your trip & informed you that the water temperatures had been cold inshore & fishing had been very slow & gave you the option of choosing a different type of trip or rescheduling. You stated that “that was the only day you could go & you all were willing to give it a shot anyway”. We do understand your disappointment. But….As you stated you booked a 7 hour inshore fishing trip with us… but.. that we fished for 9 hours…which is absolutely correct. We gave you two extra hours of our time & boat expenses trying everything to get fish on the boat because we truly care that our customers have the experience that they hope for….We also completely switched out all gear, rods & lures 3 times “not just two”.. from inshore light tackle trolling to heavier offshore trolling & then as we came back in closer to shore… switched back to light tackle again. The water temps were so cold inshore that nothing was biting for us or any of the charter captains or local private boats that we stay in constant contact with….we went way above & beyond to try & get fish for you ...We basically gave you an all day Near offshore trip for the price of a 3/4 day inshore at a much greater expense to us & actually a loss. Our inshore trips never go beyond at maximum 10 miles out….which is already more than most charters do in the first place for inshore trips….We trolled out to 30 miles offshore for you guys! Trying our best to get fish on the boat. As far as I the “Mate” for the day & a captain myself being up top much of the time…..was because I was trying my best to visually spot Cobia & Red Drum to cast to or for fish breaking the water or any other signs of life to point out to the captain & get us on fish! I can see much more area from up high on the boat. That is why many boats have towers on them in the first place. If fish would have bitten the baits or lures you could be sure I am on top of it in seconds flat. Apparently you are not able to realize when people are doing WAY more than was even paid for & to what extent we were going to try to make you all happy “did I mention the two extra hours & the $100 worth of free t-shirts we gave you all”  If you look through Fishbooker at other boats that are smaller & with much less amenities as our boat charge as much as $200.00 for just an hour “boat ride” without any fishing involved at all. We feel we more than compensated for the lack of fish caught on that particular day…especially when it is truly not something we can control.  We were very professional with you & your family as we have been with everyone else that has fished with us & written reviews for us as you & everyone else can read for themselves. Va. Beach had just hit a spell of cold water temps inshore that had slowed the fishing tremendously for those few days. We just had a bad day of fishing with you guys & we tried to explain that to you all in detail & apologized several times. We did as much as possible to correct it…but…. We can’t catch as many fish as everyone wants every day! In fishing there is just going to be days where the fish are not biting. We went out today “the very next day after your trip” with another family & the inshore fishing was slow again so we did exactly the same with them as we did with you with much better results as you can see from the pix below. Still not the greatest catch….but it shows how it can change drastically from day to day. That is why it is called FISHING & not CATCHING. Also…We want our customers to enjoy themselves & have a good time as well as catch fish…. but… with as much beer & food that you guys spilled in our boat & on the deck plus cigarette ashes that were just plucked all over everywhere without even trying to use a can or tray, the raiding of our private food & liquor cabinet & the excessive overuse of vulgar foul language in front of your very sweet 12 year old daughter was very uncomfortable for us to hear as dads ourselves .....that we are completely fine with you not booking with us again. Good luck on your next charter trip.
