Was disappointed in the fish we caught but the condition of the boat was more disappointing.  Livewell didn’t work and all our bait fish died.  Never any information about safety.  The deck hand, Jake, worked hard but we never found good fishing hole.

Hi Robert,

I apologize that you did not receive the experience you were looking for. Unfortunately unforseen circumstances happen and the livewell dying during the trip was one of those. The fishing spots are also hit or miss as fishing is unpredictable and its not easy when there are sick guests. Again, we deeply apologize for the dissapointing trip.

We did a morning six hour trip. It was raining and the captain wasn’t sure we would have a good day. It exceeded everyone’s expectations, even his own. We had to spend ten minutes fishing for bait - next to all the other boats. We reeled in 3, 4, and sometimes 5 little fishes at a time that we successfully used after our 90 minute ride to the deep sea. We caught Bonita and King mackerel trolling on the way out and on the way in. Once we reached the captains favorite spot, we caught our limit of red snapper, plus a large grouper within 30 minutes. We were catching fish so fast, Jake, the mate, had to rush around to get fish off and re-bait the hooks. What started as a dreary, rainy morning turned out to be a fantastic fishing experience. I would highly recommend the “striker” to my friends and anyone else visiting Destin.

Unfortunately, I booked this trip but wasn’t able to go due to a family medical emergency that forced me to head back home the day before the trip. So my Father-in-law and 3 brother-in-laws went without me and had great things to say. Captain and first mate were excellent and very helpful. They were on the fish all day and my father in law said he would book with them again. Thanks for giving my family a great trip.

The striker isn’t the fastest boat out there, but it has plenty of room for fishing for 5 to 6 people and the inside is simple but sufficiently comfortable! A private “head” (aka toilet) makes things very accommodating if your crew has children or ladies. It was a beautiful day on the ocean..good weather, great friends, and BIGGGGG fish!! Even a shark came and said CHOMP!! Lol!! The deck hand was great!! Extremely friendly and helpful!! Real fun and personable!

Trip was great, Scott was very knowledgable and excellent in helping us unhook the fish and getting the lines back in the water quickly., and the captain kept us on the fish. We caught our limit on vermillion snapper and landed a 20+lb kingfish. Other fish were caught and released due to them not being in season (trigger, red-snapper). Other than the air-conditioning on the boat going out on the way back in, it was a great trip.

We had a fantastic trip.  Missed the Red Snapper season by one weekend but caught other snapper and a Spanish Mackerel.  My three grand children and I caught 53 keepers and more than that not meeting the limit and trash fish.  It was amazing.  Scott the mate was great.  He was very friendly and knowledgeable.  He worked constantly to make sure we had a good trip.  We plan to go back next year and book with them again.  We have taken several trips to Destin to fish and this is by far the best Captain and crew we have ever gone with.

I am new to charter fishing. The first mate Scott was great. Very friendly an d worked well with our granddaughter. We caught all of the fish which bit on the line but that was only 3. Two were out of season so we had to release them. We did catch a Barracuda which was about 24” 5.4 lbs. We did check it in at the fishing rodeo since it was caught by my granddaughter. That was a fun experience. to make sure I am fair this was only a 4 hour trip but we did not have nearly as many hits on the lines as I expected.

Wow,  what a great day. Took the six hour trip with Cpt. Bill and First Mate Don.  Cpt put us on fish, Don provided excellent help teaching us how to fish, getting our hooks baited, fish in the cooler, and quick clean and filet at the end of the trip.  Six people in our group and everybody had a great time.  The boat was clean and the gear was in good shape.  When we return for vacation next year this is absolutely the crew we will use. These guys made sure our trip was the best it could be. Excellent value.  Thx Don and Cpt Bill for making us feel like family.  See you all next summer.
