Went fishing on Saturday, June 16, 2018

The weather was beautiful the crew was very friendly and knowledgeable.  we Only caught one shark but that is why they call it fishing. sometimes you get some sometimes you don’t, we did get one though so that was exciting. But what really caught me off guard and I was not expecting was that on the computer when I booked my trip the first mate was supposed to be included in the trip but after arriving on the boat a sign was hanging that a 20% gratuity was recommended for the first mate. with the price of my trip that 20% gratuity is $170 that doesn’t sound like it’s included to me at all I feel like I’m paying the first mate to be there now. I feel that should be more clear and detailed upfront before people book and arrive for a trip.

Sorry for the misunderstanding Bill, but there is a mention of our policy for our mates on our listing page for the boat. All of our professional mates work hard for our customers and rely on their gratuities as their sole income, as it is with most charter boats Once again I apologize for the confusion, FishingBooker works closely with us to insure that all pertinent information is accurate and up to date, Thanks, Capt. Mark

Our family of 6 booked at the last minute with Captain Mark for Saturday.  He and his mate Eric made our trip extra nice.  Very friendly and patient.  We had too small boys 6 and 8 years old.  They had them fishing and feeling comfortable from the first step on the boat.  The day was an amazing experience and mad a vacation filled with memories to last a lifetime.  Captain Mark continue to find places for us to catch fish.  It was a little windy and the boat kept drifting, but he was so concerned about us catching fish and enjoying ourselves that he even took longer than our 4 hours just to make sure we caught fish.  Love both Captain Mark and Eric.  They were the best

Medford, New Jersey
Went fishing on Friday, December 1, 2017

After being skunked three years in a row on friends boats. I decided to hire professional. I had some friends in town and wanted to do something different to show them a good time.

Captain Mark and first mate Kurt greeted us at the dock and gladly welcomed us onboard.  Once we were underway, the boat proved to be very seaworthy and a warm place on the late fall day. After we returned and talked about our experiences we agreed on one thing, as much as we wanted to catch fish, these guys wanted it even worse than we did. This was hard to imagine as I estimated Captain Mark has done is over 4,000 of these trips. This was great as these guys did not treat us like another fare and not caring if we did not catch anything. I think what really makes the difference is that these guys moonlight in the hospitality industry and provide a Treemendous experience on the boat.  We had so much fun we decided to extend it for another hour.

It is all about the experience which was great but I forgot to mention that we caught some treemendous fish and were met at the dock by a local reporter that took our picture for the paper they were so big!

I can’t wait to go on the next excursion. I’m really glad I found these guys as they are convenient to where I live and many places.

Do yourself a favor and call Captain Mark!

We had a great time going out fishing with Captain Mark and Mate Eric. We caught lots of fish, no keepers but we have a great time. As we left the boat, my nephew said we needed to book with these guys again…they were great! Highly recommend.

Captain Mike and Kurt did a great job making this trip fun.  They provide education on fishing technique, kept us fishing throughout the trip, and located spots where the fish were biting.  Both were friendly and helpful.  We will use their services again.

Went fishing on Saturday, July 8, 2017

We had an awesome time. I put it wasn’t what we expected because I had only been on a larger fishing boat before never a private charter. Captain Mark and First Mate Eric were so knowledgeable helpful and fun to be with. We caught 4 huge flounder and my boyfriend made the most amazing stuffed flounder…. really awesome time. I would advise everyone to bring lots of bug spray and or skin so soft   The green heads can be really bad.

I bought this trip as a present for my fiance and 5 of his friends for the bachelor party.  The Captain was great with communication and planning.  The guys had a lot of fun, even though it was chilly and they didn’t catch anything.  But they still loved the experience!  The Captain tried to get some catches for the guys, but it just wasn’t their weekend.  The guys can’t wait to go back and try again!
