I grew up in Biloxi, MS and have been fishing since I was in diapers. I started with bream fishing with a cane pole and graduated to deep sea fishing. After catching my first Gulf fish I was hooked. I just can't go back to fishing for smaller fish. My bait is bigger than a bream. LOL

My family and I had a great time with captain Elaine. She was considerate of the fact that my girls had not been on a boat in years,while still making it a really fun ride. She made Sure we had plenty of photo opportunities with dolphins as well as finding lots of hermit crab while snorkeling on Crab Island. Elaine seemed more of a long time friend than someone we had just met as my wife and I celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary. I would recommend this charter to anyone with a family, my children fell in love with Elain. It was an occasion we will remember fondly for years to come.

Thanks so much for taking the time to write a very nice review for me.  I am so glad you and your family had a great time.  Your family is adorable and I enjoyed showing them around and even having them over to my house to play the “ring game”.  I too felt like you were part of my family.  So glad we could meet and enjoy all that this “paradise” has to offer.

Four of us went on fishing trip and in 8 hours only caught 2 keeper fish. We caught 11 trigger fish that we couldn’t keep. To pay that kind of money we were very disappointed. The stay for 2 nights at Elaine’s was great. I’ll never pay that kind of money again to catch only 2 fish.

Thanks for selecting my charter.  I am sorry you were disappointed with the fishing trip.  When we left the house for the trip I was thinking the seas would be calm and the waves would be 1ft as predicted.  As you know we got out to the Destin Pass and the waves were extremely high…something we cannot control.  We bought bait and I informed you we would try to troll to see if the waves would subside some so we could go out to fish.  We trolled for about 1 hour and finally saw a break in the waves.  Because of the direction of the waves it was slow going to get to a spot to fish.  At that time I offered to turn back and to refund the trip and only charge for the cost of the accommodations but you all acted disappointed and wanted to go out to fish.  I proceeded to a spot 20 miles out only to find the spots loaded with trigger fish.  Trigger fish was not opened in 2017 because of being over fished as I explained.  We could have stayed at the spots we stopped and caught tons of triggers but we moved around to see if we could find snapper.  Unfortunately, it is fishing and not catching.  We try our best to get you fish but we all have to contend with government regulations, weather and waves.
