This review is not based on the fact that we only caught one fish.  It is based on the experience we had with the captain and the boat.  The Captain, Jeff, I believe, called us the day before to introduce himself and to ask me if we could change the time of the charter to something more convenient for him.  No, we could not.  Upon arriving at the dock (a bit early to accommodate him), we loaded up our cooler.  I introduced myself to him.  He did not bother introducing himself to the three other guests.  There was no safety briefing.  Where are the life jackets?  EPIRB?  Other safety gear?  The head?  I got a better safety briefing when renting a WaveRunner the next day.  He spent the charter acting like he really did not want to be there.  The boat was not very well kept.  There was no mate, just the Captain.  There was a garbage can the Captain brought with him with some chum in it.  It smelled absolutely horrible, even after he dumped it and rinsed it.  I think next time I will find a boat with a Captain that is enthusiastic about his work and wants to ensure his guests have a great experience.

Its always tough choosing a fishing trip off the Ole InterWeb and customer reviews. So in reviewing multiple boats my choice was clear for the family route. Although more accustomed to the larger sport fishers and pelagics, the One Mor was perfect for our tactics to go after the bottom dweller species, as well my FAV the RED SNAPPER. Capt Jason & Wild Man Troy puts us on fish for the entire trip. Slow at some points but that’s Fishin for ya !! Ended the day with a great Black Snap and some Excellent table fare for the family vacation. More important the great experience for family who don’t fish and caught fish !!!! Great Trip - Great Crew.

We called the morning of our trip to see if it was cancelled.  We had experienced a tropical storm the night before.  The owners said it would still be going out as scheduled.  We went out into 8 foot swells.  It wasn’t until we got out on the water that the captain asked if we wanted to turn around.  Assuming I would have just burned 700+ dollars, I said we would go ahead and fish. 
We did catch 4 fish but the ride was terrible.  My wife and I had to drive the boat when a fish was on as the captain had to help land the fish to keep anyone from going overboard.
We returned to the docks about 1.5 hours early as everyone got sick.
We learned that all other charters that day were cancelled.  The boat owner put his pocketbook ahead of our experience. 
Would recommend Destin as a great fishing spot but would not recommend this boat owner.

Hi Richard,  I’m the owner and I would never put my pocketbook ahead of my customers experience.  It’s just about every Capt. policy to go to the pass to check water conditions and at that point ask if the customers still wanted to fish.

I apologize that you didn’t enjoy your experience and would’ve gladly turned back had we known you were having reservations at no charge.  However, once we do start fishing it’s our policy to complete the trip regardless of sickness.

Again, I apologize and if there is anything I can personally do moving forward, please let me know.

Thanks,
Travis

We had a lot of fun.  Captain and crew did a nice job. We caught a lot of fish however, many were not keepers since they were not in season. We did catch a wahoo which is a tough catch but only caught two red snappers and a king mackerel. Not the crews fault just one of those days.

Next time we are in town, we would certainly consider another trip with this boat and crew.

Boat left the dock late. Tackle was not organized and the captain spent time doing that rather than fishing. We caught 2 fish in a four hour trip. Really all we were allowed to do is set and watch him fish and we reeled the 2 fish in.  It was an ok trip but I wouldn’t do it again.

We chartered the boat for 2 days. We trolled the first day and had a pretty good day. We even payed to stay out 2 hours extra since we got on the Mahi Mahi and King fish at the end of the trip. We caught an good amount of fish and got to take home some meat. The second day started with a hick up when the Capt. was late. The mate was top notch and deserved everything that he got in pay and tips. He was non stop working and very knowledgeable. We did manage to stay out later due to the late start and caught a lot of fish. Overall we had a very good 2 days of fishing. I would still recommend this boat for any future charters. Overall, very good trips. Thanks Travis, Phil and especially Jeff (the mate) for a very good time.

I knew going into this trip that it was the hardly the ideal time of year to be going fishing but everybody in the group kept buggging me to go so I decided why not. In the morning we couldn’t even catch minnows to save our life but after 1.5 hrs that quickly changed as we were catching a mixed bag consisting of a gag grouper, red snapper, mangrove snapper, flounder, amberjack, and even hooked up with shark for 10 minutes before if broke off. I can’t say anything against the boat or crew.

My family and I had a trip scheduled for Oct. 18, 2015, but the captain re-scheduled due to rough seas.  The new date was set for Oct. 22, 2015.  The captain planned on taking us out 15 miles to fish, but the waves were still too large and he told me that it would take about 2 hours to get the fishing spot.  He informed me that we would use most of our time traveling and have little time to fish, so he wanted to stay closer to shore and fish for King Mackerel.  Since he is the professional, I went with his recommendation and I am glad I did.  We fished for bait fish which took about 5 min. and we had about 35 to 40 bait fish.  The captain had us catching fish right away.  We caught our limit of King Mackerel in about 3 hours and it was exciting the whole time.  We took home about 60 lbs. of fish fillets.  The first mate was top notch as well.  He was quick to change fishing equipment as needed and kept all the rods and reels baited.  Both captain Paul and first mate Mike were very friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable.  We had a wonderful time and I highly recommend these folks for a great fishing experience.  Thanks guys for a great trip and I hope to see you next year.

The weather was perfect for our five hour trip.  This was my three children’s first offshore trip. The captain and mate were excellent.  They were very friendly and knew how to find the fish.  We caught about 20 that we took back and plenty of others that were released.  There was plenty of action for everyone.  The boat and equipment were just right and what we expected based on what we saw on the website.  I would highly recommend this charter and can’t wait until our next trip.

This was a great day spent with family and a pleasure from beginning to end. The captain and his assistant kept us fishing and most importantly catching fish. Some of the fishermen actually got tired from pulling in the fish. The boat is comfortable with everything layed out for effeciency and without people habing to crawl over or into other passengers.
I highly recommend this boat, captain and crew for a great day and a great value for the day.

I had a great time fishing on the One Mo’r!  Got up in the morning with a few of my friends and we were headed out to sea right on time.  We made a quick stop to catch some bait fish and say “Good Morning” to the dolphins that swam right past the boat not 10ft away!  Then the Captain took us to what must have been his most choice fishing locations in the Gulf because we did not stop catching fish all day.  Caught a ton of Amberjack, some Snapper, Dingo, and even a huge Grouper!  The mate of the boat was also first class.  He would tell great jokes, bait the hooks, get the fish off that we caught, then he cleaned everything for us at the end of the day giving everyone a huge bag of fresh Gulf fish.  Being from Pike County AL the only thing I ever consistently catch is a few large blue gill, so this deep sea fishing trip was just great.  I can’t wait to come back next year and get One Mo’r fishing trip!!!
