Went fishing on Thursday, May 11, 2017

This was incredible time for myself, my fiancé, and two of our other friends. We started the trip catching live bait and the ride out was pleasant and went by quickly. We saw dolphins all along the way and we got great instructions from Nick, our first mate, on what to expect and how to optimize our trip. We went to 3 different spots and caught so many fish at each one. Had snapper and trigger been in season we would’ve easily come home with twice as many fish! We ended up being 3 fish shy of our limit and will be feasting on it for a while. I would say that we caught well over 100 fish and we came home with about 40. We can’t say enough good things about our captain, Nick, and the owner of the boat who personally came and greeted us and made conversation while our fish were cleaned and fileted. They put a bag of fish to the side so that we could have it prepared for our lunch in the restaurant immediately behind the west dock. It was a true FEAST and reasonably priced!! It was a very fruitful day and we will be back!!

It was a beautiful trip and day. The only big fish that was in season was the king mackerel. And we limited out so the fishing was great. Just wish we would have had more of a variety to catch but no control over the season. Overall it was an excellent trip and based off the other boats the were coming in we had the best catch. Everyone had a blast! Nick our deck hand was very informative and did a great job.

When the captain said drop your line, it was 1-2 seconds before we were getting bites.  The five of us caught 35 keepers.  We caught over 70 other fish that we could not keep but they were fun to catch.  Also when we started catching fish we could not keep the captain moved us.

Would have caught a lot more snapper if the dolphins had not shown up to steal our catch, but my four daughter’s love seeing them.We caught mackerel while trolling and took home plenty of fish. The Mighty Fine is a clean, comfortable boat. Would strongly recommend this charter.

We went out at a time when red snapper and trigger fish were not in season, but that didn’t stop us from catching fish non stop!  We caught several Bonita and king mackerel, then bottom fished for vermilion snapper, white snapper, black snapper, lane snapper, goggle snapper, pogie, and a ton of other good eating fish!  The kids are 12 to 23 and they all had a great time.  It helps that they can go into the AC and sit on the couch whenever they need a rest.  And this big boat doesn’t rock at all.  A++

Worst trip I’ve ever been on the captain was rude and didn’t seem like he knew what he was doing,I have never been on a trip where we didn’t catch anything until going on mighty fine. I will not recommend anyone to go on that boat .
That was a glorified $1,800 boat ride and a grave disappointment.

Captain was very friendly. He asked us what we wanted to catch and put us where we needed to be to catch what we asked for.  If we weren’t so green, we might have been able to hit our max of red snapper, but we still came close and came away with plenty of keepers. First mate was also very friendly and informative. He worked his tail off and made things easy for all of us. The boat was very clean and the a/c was ice cold when a break was needed. We would not and will not hesitate to use them again.

We did a 4 hour trip with Cpt. Sam and deck head Nick!  The staff was very knowledgable and very helpful.  Cpt. Sam put us right on the fish when we started and it wore us out in a good way!  The boat was very clean and comfortable.  The air on the inside felt amazing.  There is plenty of room for friends and family and their bathroom was very clean as well.  After our charter we took pictures and they fileted our fish and separated them all for us.  Might Fine Charters was very accommodating and I’d recommend them to anyone that is looking for a nice fishing experience.  We really enjoyed our time and had a wonderful experience!  We wIll definitely book another charter with Mighty Fine fishing charters.
