Had a good trip, weather was cooperative, but the fish were a bit uncooperative. However the crew did well, and really tried putting us on fish. Caught, nice wahoo, and some smaller tuna and bonito. I would definitely go with this crew again....

Had a slow day on the water which isn't really the charters fault. We hooked up to some small blackfin tuna and some bonita as well. Captain and mate were very nice and tried putting us on fish. Only negative things I could say was the mate mentioned we were fishing at the absolute worst time of the year which... More

First Dave, first mate, ask if we would each pitch in $20 we could buy some live bait. So we did (2 couples on boat). They stopped by a boat and they didn't have any bait so he gave our money back . Went out and caught live bait. Ok, ready for the big day. Dave set 5 fishing lines... More

Louann, when you boarded the boat you were told that fishing was slow and we will try to fly the kite. As you must remember to fly a kite, you Must have Wind. No Wind--- the Kite does not fly. When you go on a split or a share charter with other people every one has a fishing rod. Sorry... More

Awesome. We have mostly been on bottom fishing trips in the past. This year we booked a trip with Happy Day Today on New Years Eve for a 1-5 afternoon trip. Captain Tom assured us we would have a great time. He did not disappoint. The boat was great with seating for 5 outside on the fishing area. Inside are... More

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful experience here. We were treated very well, and the crew was very personable. I caught several large fish, the largest being a 7 foot sailfish. I would definitely recommend this if you are in the area.

We had an incredible time fishing with Captain Zsak and his son David. I caught a 7 foot long Atlantic sailfish in the first hour and my wife and kids caught several mackerel. They were extremely helpful with my kids and took care of everything. They even filleted our mackerel so we could grill them later. Awesome time.
