First of all, let me say that the captain and crew are very helpful and friendly; that's the good part. Now for the bad- I made a "reservation" for a "special" trip on 10/13/16, which was stated to take only 30 people. NOT the case. There were so many people in line before we got not the boat that there... More

It ended being a long long day. We had big waves and the boat got stuck about noon. It took about 6 hours to get us back to a deck. The crew was not friendly. One actually threaten to throw a guy in the sea because he did not bring in the fish right way! Wow!! That is how you... More

I do not know how people can go fishing with this company. Terrible experience! The trip started at 7am Wed. the 28th 2016. High winds, while we were fishing and then the ship broke down at about 12:30 pm. We where stranded for 5 hours with the captain trying to tell us that this is the first time it ever... More

The website does not allow for reservations, yet when we arrived at the recommended time we were told that there was no more room on the boat. Being turned away, however, was probably for the best as there were 50 or so men in the parking lot sitting on their coolers already drinking beer around noon.

I took my 10 and 8 year old on the Blackhawk for a midweek porgy fishing trip. I was nervous putting my kids on a boat for seven/eight hours. There is the worry that they will get seasick, that we will not catch fish, how to keep them occupied, and the general paranoia of any parent. The captain and crew... More

The crew today kicked butt on the Columbus Day -Full Charter ESPECIALLY Glen and Ryan!! They were both super helpful and cool. Ryan is like a fishing monkey ninja-- on several occasions Ryan was literally almost upside down getting fish out of the water. My husband and my lines got tangled up and we both had fish. Ryan ripped them... More

The fishing experience is great. The Captain knows how to find fish and catch them. That, after all is what it is all about. His manners with customers is brusque and many times is belittling. With the crew he can be cruel. He belittles them in front of customers which made me uncomfortable and cannot make them love him. I... More

If there are fish out there you will be taken to them and told how to catch them. A working boat and crew. Take advantage of their experience. Everything you could hope for or need.

Let me start by saying that I underestimated what it would be like bringing 6 children ages 8-12 on a fishing trip. Having fished for blues on the surface of my local bay my whole life I was unaware of how technical the bottom fishing would be for the kids. We started with porgies which wasn't hard and the kids...
