Went fishing on Monday, May 1, 2017

We didn’t catch anything big but did manage to bring 7 snapper back with us. The yacht club cooked them up when we got back it was delicious. Fish or no fish the guys are great and it’s a nice relaxing morning on the water.

Unfortunately we didn’t catch anything while trolling due to the heavy rains that washed debris way out into the water; however, Captain Howard Martin & his two deck hands worked hard to try to get us a big bite.  There was a HUGE Dorado that was landed the day before the rain hit.  My boyfriend did catch some Red Snapper on the automatic reel that was deliciously prepared by the Seahorse Grill!  Although the fish weren’t biting, we still had a great time fishing on the Lucky Bastard Fishing Charter! ~

Arthur, Thank you for your review.  We hope you enjoyed our country and home to see you back soon for a another fun-filled day on the sea!

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.
