Went fishing on Sunday, May 28, 2017

This was by far the worst fishing experience we have been on.  This was for my son’s graduation.  We basically spent $900 to sleep on this boat.  We originally were greeted as we got onto the boat.  There might have been one other time before we left that we were actually spoken to while we were on that entire trip.  The captain and crew barely spoke to each other.  We did not have a bite the entire day.  My two sons were able to touch a fishing pole one time to drop a line next to the boat to pull up bait fish. We could have had the same or better experience fishing from the shore line.  To tell me “that’s just how fishing goes sometimes” is not acceptable.  We listened to other fishermen talk on the radio about what a wonderful day they had.  When we got back to the dock we saw 8-10 fishermen with wheelbarrows full of fish.  Not including the time to drive out and drive back we still spent pretty much the entire day driving from spot to spot leaving our lines in for maybe three minutes at a time.  Like I said the most expensive nap we have ever had.

Hello Teresa This is Captain Dusty. Let me first say I am so sorry your day was not a success. I am truly upset that this day did not work out. Your son deserved a great graduation present. I hope you enjoyed some family time before he goes off to conquer his future and I am sorry this trip did not add good memory’s to this celebratory occasion. Congratulations to him and to you on a job well done and to the bright future that awaits him. No excuses it is my job to find the fish. I spared no expense in my quest to find a few day saving fish. As you mentioned we drove spot to spot. Traveling uses a lot of fuel but I truly turned over every stone possible in my effort to save the day. Unfortunately this was a case where the fishing shut down in the afternoon. This sometimes happens in the summer and if the choice was made to leave early we probably would have been victorious. The other boats that had fish were on full day trips and had left the dock at 7a.m. instead of noon. This is why they were already talking about the good catches they already had while we were still searching for fish. For anyone reading this response this is why it’s a good idea to do a full day or to get up early for a morning half day. That being said sometimes afternoons do have advantages. I apologize for our interaction with you and with my deck hand seemed to be lacking. I feel the pressure to make every trip a success and when fishing is difficult I sometimes get to focused on working a game plan that my interaction can lack. I love to fish and I love my job. I especially love helping families make good memories and I take it to heart when that doesn’t happen. Please find forgiveness in your heart for me. This business supports me and my family along with my crews family. I know the old saying that’s why it’s called fishing and not catching doesn’t help but I hope you found some enjoyment in your family time where cell phones don’t work and spending time together on a beautiful ocean is what counts. I wish you would have contacted me first before writing a review that could hurt my livelihood so I could have a chance to explain the trip. If you want to give me a call I will be happy to explain, apologize for the poor fishing and see what I can do to make it better. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to take you and your family fishing.

some sound proofing on the engine would help
two inexpensive fighting chairs would be nice
padding on boxes would help a lot
crew could be a little more professionally dressed and cleanner at least at the start off the day

The boat and trip was everything it was advertised it would be. This was a business meeting outing and team building event.
The trip and fishing was great, the captian was very professional and helpful on you excursion, as a lot of the group had not been on an ocean fishing trip before.

I would.do.this trip again anytime, and highly recommend Time and Tide to anyone lookinf for a great fishing adventure.

Very nice day. We went out fishing for King mackerel. Had 3 on a line several times. Almost limited out real early in the day.
Crew was great and made the day a breeze.

Ronnie was awesome with my teenage boys. Professional, polite, instructive but a ton of fun. We come to Cocoa Beach every year and we will specifically request him. My sons now have a “trophy” pictures to show their friends of an almost 6 foot shark. My money well spent.

This trip included myself and 3 of my sons aged 15, 13, and 10. I did not plan ahead very well and the captain accepted my request about 24 hours prior to departing. Ronnie was our guide and Ronnie was great.  He worked very hard to make sure we caught a shark. He hooked 2 large sharks but due to inexperience of the anglers both sharks were able to get away.  It was very obvious that Ronnie loved to fish and he takes his job seriously.  He was visibly upset that we did not land the sharks.  Not upset at the anglers, but upset that that we did not get a photo opportunity.  Ronnie also noticed that my boys took interest in the small bait fish jumping around the boat and gave them a pole to start catching the small stuff.  From a dad’s perspective, that was a great moment.  It showed me Ronnie was all.about the customer.  Even though me and my boys don’t have the whopper fish story to tell when we get back to pittsburgh, we do have a story to tell about a great fishing trip with a great guide.
