Catching Charter. Not "Fishing"

Will have to agree with Mike from Burlington, Ontario's comment. The trip was below average as to what I am use to (4 fishing trips to date). Wrong dock, wrong boat, Captain Joe most definitely had an 'off day'!! The bright side was our full cooler and young Matt (1st mate) was awesome!! So polite and respectful...here's hoping his mannerism's... More

It wasn't a great start. Return calls came days late, we were sent to the wrong dock, and then after leaving the dock, we turned around to switch boats, We got past all of that without a negative comment. We caught lots of grouper, but 8 guys caught only 6 keepers. It may be our Canadian outlook, but we also... More

I have been going on a full day charter for at least the last 7 years with a group of guys and just returned from my latest trip. This should be called a catching trip instead of a fishing trip because we spend all of time catching fish and not just fishing for them. I have fished in many places... More

Group of 9 went out on an all day Charter. Capt. Jim did an absolute amazing job setting us up on fish. It was a slightly rough day at sea which is totally out of his control, but he took control and put some serious Capt skill to work and put us on top of spots. Once the bite slowed... More

We did a half day trip with Cap't Jim and First Mate Josh. They were wonderful! We had 8 people total including 4 young kids, two of which had never been fishing and were a little nervous starting out. Jim and Josh made sure that the hooks were always baited and that everyone was having fun. The two little ones... More

We chartered A&B for a half day fishing excursion out of Naples, FL. Captain Jim and first mate Josh were extremely patient and friendly. The crew took care of all of our needs and showed us (most of us complete fishing rookies) what to do. We had great luck and everyone on the boat caught fish. We returned to the... More

We had the most awesome time! Captain Jim and crew are clearly experienced, professional, and worked hard to ensure we enjoyed ourselves. The spots chosen for fishing could not have been better...Captain Jim knows the Gulf! Highly recommend A&B and Captain Jim,

Do not book with CAPTAIN JOE, he is something else, words can't describe how unprofessional this company runs their business! We booked their shared charter months in advance and had to continually call to make sure that we were still good for our confirmed date, not once did this captain call us to confirm, each time we called it was...

Not worth the money we spent or time wasted at the dock getting the run around of which boat we were going on and when we did leave our time was limited without any discount, let alone any good keepers to take home.

We have no record of ever taking this individual on a charter with our company and suspect this is a review by a competitor or disgruntled ex-employee or friend of ex-employee. Our company takes thousands of individuals and hundreds of groups on deep sea fishing charters every year and are always trying to exceed expectations. If this individual is a... More
