  This was our first time fishing in the Gulf. The trip was outstanding. Captain Chris put us on the fish. The First Mate, TJ is the best!! TJ made sure we understood what was going to happen and how we should handle it. When things got crazy,(catching 4 and 5 fish at a time) TJ took excellent care of us.

The experience was fun. The crew was patient with us but in our 4 hours the fish were not biting like we had hopes of. If only we could have a stacked deck of fish to catch. Dinner that night was an excellent King Mackerel grill out, skipper Chris gave us a great cooking idea using Italian dressing. Our photos did not include our fish, sorry!

I apologize that you were over charged.  That was a miscommunication between myself and the Captain.  I will refund your card immediately.  2 of you paid so please let me know what card to do the refund to.  We can make it right if you would have called me directly and explained the situation.  I looked it right up and knew you were overcharged.  To be honest, I would have called you anyway.  I reconcile everything monthly and would have known and called you to correct the problem. 

I am so sorry you did not have a great time.  Catching fish out of season is something we have to battle every day.  It is unfortunate to our visitors that we are so heavily regulated and can only keep certain fish during the certain times.  It makes for a lot of questions that seem unanswerable. 

Another thing we have to battle is weather and sea conditions.  It was definitely sporty on July 5th and I believe you had some anglers under the weather.  When this happens it impedes our ability to go out further to where the bottom fishing is more lucrative.  I am so sorry that they were sea sick and I hope it does not deter them from going again.  Fishing in the Gulf of Mexico is amazing.  We have so many varieties of fish species that you can go out each time and catch something completely different. 

Thank you for your feedback.  We take it very seriously.

Had an excellent time with Captain Chris and First Mate Brian on No Alibi. They put us on the snapper and made the charter an overall great experience. We will definitely book again.

We booked what was said to be “Mostly trolling. Though we can bottom fish on these trips, it’s very hard to get to the better fishing grounds.” but ended up only trolling on the way out and back and most of the fishing was bottom fishing. We really lucked out though and even with high speed trolling on the way back we ended up catching three king mackerel which really saved the trip.

Booking was easy through fishingbooker, they contacted the captain and arranged the day that worked for us both. I sent an email to the captain several days before the trip and never got a reply back and ended up calling and talking to his wife (I believe) the day before we left to get the details. Captain said hello when he got to the boat… went up and sat in the seat and never said another word until we got back and that was just to take my payment… not sure if he had a rough night the night before or just was in a bad mood. The mate was great though and very personable.

Just do to lack of communication I would not go on this charter again. I did rate it a 4 instead of a 3 because we did get lucky and catch the 3 Mackerels on the drive back.. If it hadn’t been for that I would have been extremely disappointed.

We had a blast, caught two shark’s, the first was within the first thirty minutes. Captain Chris switched it up for us to fish for some eaters to take home. He put us right on top of trigger, white snapper, and mingos and ended up with three bags of great tasting fish. The deckhands Brian and Caleb were excellent with anything to help us out. No Alibi is a very nice boat with great tackle. Definitely going to go out again when we come back.

Appreciate the courtesy call from Misty to let us know that the water was going to be rough to go out the day of our trip, so they put me in contact with capt Chris and he rescheduled the trip for the next day. Had a blast caught 18 Spanish mackerel and 6 amberjack but had 2 keepers. Brian was a great deck hand as he explained everything we were about to do made the trip very enjoyable. Highly recommend this boat , when returning to Destin I will be using “No Alibi” for sure . Thanks again

Thanks for the amazing review!!  So glad everyone had fun.  Amberjacks definitely give a good fight.  See you again soon to catch some more!

Thanks again,

This was my first time booking a private charter and No Alibi will be the only I’ll fish on off shore! The captain and crew were outstanding and extremely helpful!
This captain knows how to catch fish! I was ipmressed and took a lot of fish with me, home. I would highly recommend this boat to anyone. It’s a done deal! Perfect boat for deep sea fishing.
