Tom and Ricky were excellent as Captain and Mate.  They made the trip fun and were very helpful and shared their knowledge. We trolled for a while and didn’t catch a whole lot but then my son ended up reeling in a 300 lb. 9 foot hammerhead shark!  That was so exciting for all of us!  Didn’t get a picture of him out of the water because the line broke just as Ricky was pulling him up beside the boat.  Bummer. We did end up bringing some fish home as well.  The only complaint I would have were the broken chairs that made it difficult to reel in a big fish. My 18 yr old son kept sliding forward and had trouble staying in the chair. But Ricky and my older son both helped him. Overall it was an awesome day!

It was my second fishing trip in key west, this one was perfect.
A nice trip, professional captain and deck hand, very polite and nice to be around.

To summon it up we had a great day and will surely use them again for our next fishing trip.

Bobby and Ricky were great! We had a blast and I’ll bet all 5 of us caught over 20+ fish a piece! We didn’t have to many photos because we were catching fish the entire time! We caught Snapper, Grouper, Trigger, Grunts, and various other types of fish. The fish tacos that night were awesome!

Captain Bobby and mate Ricky got the full boat of six each several chances at fish, as a boat we ended up catching mostly Blacking Tuna with a few Bonita, and a King Mackerel.  The material Ricky filleted the Blackfins at the dock.

The weather was nearly perfect. The sea was very choppy. First mate Danny was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He stayed very busy making sure each of us had a chance to catch fish. While he was doing that our captain did an amazing job of maneuvering the boat. All in all it was a great trip.

The morning started out very slow, no activity. We finally started catching Bonita about 2 hours into the 4 hour charter. It was my wife’s birthday and this was something she was looking forward to. She ended up catching the last fish of the day which was a 48 inch Wahoo and we’re having it mounted. She was so excited, so it turned out to be a great day in the end!
