Had to cut the trip short because I got seasick, but Captain Number to and Tony were very helpful and professional. After I caught a blue marlin I asked to come back in as I was to puny to continue. The seas were rough for me.

Crew and captain were awesome… very rocky seas. Almost everyone got sick. We expected to go out and drop a line in but it was all trolling. The crew cast them out and we just sat there. Not a single bite but that’s fishing. If you want a leisure ride with the chance of catching a fish and have a iron stomach then this is for you. Would not recommend kids on this trip.

Sorry Lou Ann about your party got sea seack, this is the Atlantic Ocean and here in the caribbian it is widy most of the time making the seas shoppy. About dropping the line it is not the way for marlin fishing, trolling is the standard method for them. I think that you want to do was bottom fishing instead wich we do not do it due to the seas and here the boottom is very deep for that. I personaly do it but with the right seas conditions and we use comertial tackle for that since the drop is from 600 to 1000 feet deep donw and you have to set the hook by hand, Thats why we do not offer that kind of fishing. We fish for pelagic species like all the billfish, mahis, tunas and wahoos that they feed on the surface not at the bottom. A have to admit that the bite was very slow among with the other boats that there were in the area, we have no controll of the migration of them. Trolling is our expertice and we have had customers as young from 10 to 13 years old fighting a blue marlin having their parents helping with the rod. I hope this information will help you for your next fishing trip. Looking forward to see you again. Capt. Humberto

I booked a half day charter for myself and my family on June 6th.  I would like to say that Capt. Perales and First Mate Tony were very nice and professional people.  As for the fishing, that is a different story.  We spent 4 hours riding around and did not ever touch a single rod or get any bite what so ever.  It is not due to anything done wrong by Capt. Perales or Tony because they did the best that they could do.  The seas were very choppy with easily 5-8 foot swells and this may have been the reason for the bad fishing.  They were jut not biting.  It is just a disappointment not to be able to catch one fish but that is the gamble you take when you set out to fish… Sometimes they bite and sometimes they don’t.  Do not let this review discourage you as my bad luck may not be the luck that you experience.  Best of Luck!!!!!
