The repertoire with captain Mike and mate Nelson was exceptional.  Although we could not do the
scheduled trip, due to weather, fishing inland did not produce any catch.  Hopefully, we can schedule another time and catch something.  Besides no catch, all parties involved had a grand ole’ time!

All in all, a great day on the water even though fish weren’t biting much.  The captain did his best to put us on the fish and his mate worked hard to keep us in the hunt.  Will try again after the summer heat declines.

Thanks for the stars Bill. Sure enjoyed taking your family out. The fishing definitely could have been better. Some small sea bass, croaker,  some missed hook ups and of course toad fish .Thank you for the opportunity to charter with your great family.

Captain knows the area, put us on fish time our hooks got wet. Had several BIG hookups we failed to land. Had a wonderful time. Will definitely book again.

Terrific time, excellent crew, very knowledgeable about the local waters and hot spots. Our group of four caught 20+ fish on a half day trip in late July. Highly recommend this Charter.

Pleasure was all ours. You guys slayed them today. Your group picked up on what the hit feels like pretty quick. I just wish every trip could be as bountiful as this one . Different from day to day. Again so glad the trip was a great success for you. Gotta do it again soon . Thanks guys.

Boat was not kept up, captain appeared less than knowledgeable for fishing locations. Boat broke down with one engine overheating and cutting short trip by an hour. Did not catch the fish I expected. 1 Black Sea Bass was a keeper. Captain did pro rate the fee and offered a good deal to return in the fall. Nice people but just didn’t have the experience I expected for the area to put us on fish.

Sorry wasn’t greatest trip for you. But safety first. Strange comment since you told me just the opposite after trip . But can’t predict the bite from day to day unfortunately, and yes did have water pump go bad on Starboard engine. Wish I could predict the catch and unforeseen Issues I’d be a millionaire. And as I recall some big hook ups where lost that where not landed by your party.

Had a great day with a very experienced captain and mate. The interaction with both the captain and the mate made the trip both entertaining and educational for us all.

Had a 3/4 day trip booked with Cap’t Eddie.  When we arrived he was very straightforward- the winds were too high for a decent day at the reefs, and an incoming front had moved the fish further out so no one was catching anything inshore.  His strong (and apologetic) view was to cancel the trip as he didn’t think it would be either enjoyable or productive, and he didn’t think it would be right to waste our money.

We really appreciated his honest evaluation, and based on our experience not all captains would have been so candid.  We really look forward to making it out on the water with him during our next Charleston trip, and are sure he will be as good a fisherman as he is a person.  Definitely recommended.

Thank you so much for your kind Review. At Topdogz we just try to do the right thing and what is best for our anglers.

Four hour trip and did not catch a single fish that could be kept. The captain went to one spot and never moved. You would think once he saw we were not catching anything, he would have tried a new spot.

I beg your pardon Sir. Did catch fish. And several big hook ups just could not set the hooks and lost fish at boat . I can’t put them on hook for you. Maybe it’s because the Ladies on the trip out fished you . That being said if you would have talked to me about it first I could have arranged a inshore trip at no charge for you like I have for Two other trips this year.
