Background
Fishing is in my blood. I have been on boats and on the water since the day I was born. I have never wanted to be anything other than a fishing Captain. I worked with my father, Captain Mike, until he passed away when I was 25. I took over the family business and have developed our fleet to 5 Bertram sportsfishers, ranging from 31ft to 46ft. I am on the water every chance I get, with charters, fishing tournaments, or just fooling around with friends and family. I hold the island Blue Marlin record of 940lbs and the St. Lucia Billfish tournament record of 707lbs. When you fish with me or my crew you know you are fishing with a crew who share a passion for the ocean and and a real love of fishing and fun!

Went fishing on Friday, January 26, 2018

Sea was okay.  Never met the captain but the mate was friendly and tried. No beer but NO snacks, even though the site indicated there was to be snacks.
Most of all NO fish, NO bites, in four hours.  I should have believed the other Reviews (great crew but no fish).  So despite the weather and fun with my family I was disappointed.

Went fishing on Friday, April 18, 2014

Second time to St. Lucia and we for sure used one of Exodus charters for a private deep sea fishing again.

This time we were aboard Rocky Bluff with Captain Jeremy and Dave and both took good care of us for an entire day. It was a fun filled day for our group of 5 adults and 3 teenagers. 50 weeks until we are back for more.
