My grandfather and family used to run charter boats when I grew up. I've always loved the water and fishing. I'm lifestyle rich, I get to get up and do everyday what many people dream of doing once in their lives.
Techniques
I prefer to troll for Marlin. I enjoy catching all fish, but nothing beats the adrenaline, challenge and show of catching marlin.

Here’s my feedback on the charter aboard the Renegade March 7 2017


To say the captain and crew are unable to think outside the box would be an understatement. There was a young lady on board as a decky (2nd time) that had no clue and was not able to answer any of my questions or decided to provide incorrect information, it was when she said it was only her 2nd time on the boat i knew there was no point in continuing any further questions to her. She was more interested in whale’s than trying to find fish. 

The only time any of the 3 crew came on deck was to go to the toilet, get a drink or some food. Other than that we the clients sat there looking out to sea or talking amongst ourselves while they sat on the top deck. 

To troll for 8 hours at 8 to 9 knots with surface lures when there was absolutely no surface action is beyond belief. Hardly any birds, no bait fish, not one hit, nothing! 

To not even try a deep diving, sub surface lure, even stop to do some jigging for anything to keep your clients remotely happy is mind blowing. Not one person apart from the crew touched a rod or reel. 5 rigs were changed to more of the same type of lure in the first 4 hours and then nothing. The crew looked like they just gave up. 

I totally understand that you can’t guarantee a fish but i know when someone is trying to find fish and when someone is watching the clock. The captain couldn’t get off the boat fast enough when we docked. 

I don’t believe i waited 3 months for this charter and all i got was an uninterested crew that really looked like they didn’t want to catch fish. 

Thanks for the offer of a free trip but why on earth would i subject myself to that again! I’ve done a fair bit of open water fishing and this is the first time i have seen such incompetence.

Would not recommend!!!

I was expecting at least to fight if not catch one fish .. But the fish didn’t even eat the bate . You need to get fishing points so the customer can catch some fish.

Thank you for coming fishing with us Shlomo.  We do our best to catch fish.  They swim up to 60 mph and don’t stay in the same spot for very long.  Everyday is a new hunt in search of them.  Sometimes you catch a lot and sometimes you don’t catch anything.  We are sorry you didn’t get to catch or fight a fish.  It’s not everyday that you get to catch a marlin, someone else was really lucky that day.  You were lucky enough to see a marlin get caught.  Thanks for the video!  We have another shared trip going out on the 21st.  Will you still be here?

Mahi Mahi up to about 32 pounds and an aku they called it which I believe was a small tuna was what we got into. It was so much fun and the captain and crew were phenomenal.  Thanks for the experience!
