I was the 1st to start offering Deep Drop Fishing Charters in Jamaica. Deep Drop Fishing is lots of fun and to date we have 100% catch rate. We also do very well trolling. I was also the 1st to start CATCH-N-DINE.

Went fishing on Tuesday, December 27, 2016

Fairly disappointing trip for some experienced fishermen.  Trolling was done on the way out from the dock to the area where we ultimately dropped lines to fish.  Dropping lines reminded me of the “party boat” that i took with my grandpa 40 years ago that had 30 people all around the boat and we all dropped lines and we waited for the “lucky bastard” who got a bite.  Hey maybe that’s where the name came. 

We probably should not have gone out on this day either as we encountered 8-10 foot waves which toppled the benches on the boat unless we held them up ourselves.  My guess is that the $700+ cost was too much for this group to postpone.  I get it from their point of view but a large price to pay to drop in a few lines.  Cost was for 4 but there was only enough room and gear for two to fish.  We did pull in 6 very small red snapper that probably should have been thrown back but they had drown on the way up from the torque on the automatic reels.
