Headed out on the water with Rudy and mate JP. We had four in our party, two couples. our first time out on water for deep sea fishing. We're looking forward to giving it a go at this type as we typically do river or lake fly fishing. We booked a morning 1/2 day excursion. The winds were about 15... More

Rudy was an excellent host. We had good weather and caught three decent size fish. We lost a 25 lb Mahi Mahi but it was a great fight. My son landed a decent Bonito (Tuna family). We recommend the half day morning trip to all ages especially if the seas are not too bad.

We had a great day w Rudy. He was easy to work with and quick to respond to emails. His place was easy to find in Simpson bay. Right behind Trisport SXM and you can find Trisport on Google maps. Nice clean boat. Very knowledgeable of the area. Been here a long time. Would recommend!

I had a very good experience fishing with Rudy. he is a very experienced captain and very pleasant to listen to his life.... This is the fourth time I make fishing and this is definitely the best experience I had. I highly recommend Rudy and his professionalism. Thanks a lot Rudy for this amazing experience.

My son and I had a great time fishing with Rudy. Rudy kept us entertained with stories and saturated with a few beverages. We even caught a nice mahi-mahi off the coast. Rudy captains a nice comfortable boat - great get away day for friends and family to spend time on the high seas.

We went fishing with Rudy as per a friend's recommendation that went fishing with him last summer. It couldn't have been better, everything was well thought of by this experienced fisherman. We were there a little early and Rudy welcomed us on the dock. We started to get some bites no too far out from the bridge, that was very... More

Ohhh... my God..... Fishing is one of the best and exciting ways to kill time on St.Maarten. I just can recommend to contact Rudy who will really help you to catch a big fish that nestle in that area. I know him in person and I am hundred percent sure that the time will be interesting and not boring.

Hi Alina, I was glad to hear that you were happy with my service – that kind of feedback can go a long way. Tight lines and screaming reels. More

Two of the four hour trip was spent traveling not fishing. Most of the rest of the four hours the bait was caught on weeds and was on top of the water. Please do yourself a favor and stay away from Rudys deep see sham.
