Went fishing on Sunday, March 19, 2017

Went out for a half day trip with Capt. Rodney. He was very professional and provided everything we needed. He had us catching Snapper as soon as we dropped our lines in the water. Im looking forward to the next time and can’t wait to see what we catch next. Book a trip today, you won’t regret it!

We had an amazing time. Captain Rodney and Ben were great. They baited our hook, removed the fish we caught and cleaned the fish. The boat was nice and clean, we didn’t need anything everything was provided for us. Captain Rod and Ben were very interactive with us. We not only enjoyed the fishing, but the conversation as well. We definitely recommend Olivia J Charters.

Thank you for fishing with us.  We are happy you enjoyed your time and hope to see you again.

Went fishing on Sunday, October 2, 2016

Had a load of fun out with Captain Rodney this past weekend!  Three of my nine-year olds and grandpa had a blast with pulling up lots of snapper with the first drop of the lines.  Captain Rodney was great about baiting and dealing with the numerous reel backlashes all the while.  Will definitely head out with Captain Rodney again on our next fishing adventure!

Thanks Paul. It was a pleasure having your family out with us.  Looking forward to seeing you all again.

Captain was knowledgeable and very friendly.  He wasn’t the kind that does what he wants.  He listened to what we were fishing for and put us in a spot that we where catching snappers and shark within 1 minute of having a pole in the water.  Everytime.  He would bait for us , and take and measure the fish that we caught.  Had a great time!
