Went fishing on Sunday, March 12, 2017

The captain and mate really took very good care of the group by making sure we were well attended too. We caught 5 fish and were able to bring mahi mahi to Carlos and Charlie’s for lunch too cook our fresh fish. It was delicious.  Going out with them on our trip.

We were picked up at 7:00am as promised at the Resort’s dock, once aboard, cruised out to open waters in about 25 minutes and fishing started, within minutes 5 lines were in water and we were fishing, we (the two of us) were lucky enough to catch -2- Barracuda and -3- Tuna thanks to the Captain and 1st mate, of course we do wonder if one or more of the three fish that got off the line might have been a BIG One, but that just makes it more desirable to come back and try again. Thank you Captain for a FABULOUS Fishing experience.  Anyone desiring a great time with an experienced charter crew, you definitively should book with them.

We had a good time. The Mahe Mahe were bitting. Two doubles, and one single. Had three misses. Can’t complain with only fore hours of fishing. 11/10/15

Although we caught no fish, the crew & captain did everything possible from continually changing live baits, lures, depths & locations. We kept 5 lines in the water at all times the fish just weren’t biting that day. Otherwise it was a fantastic experience & would do again.

The crew went all out and rigged everything expertly and kept everything clear of seaweed. We caught three nice Mahi Mahi and since we were on a cruise could not take them home. They filleted one and took us to a restaurant that cooked it for us. My wife and three adult children were with me and everyone had a blast. Nice open boat, clean and plenty of water, soft drinks and beer. I received great communication by email from the boat captain about the weather.
