The boat is no longer the Island Star it is Double Agent. There were only 16 guests aboard and 4 crew along with the Capt. I still found myself helping the little boy next to me. (I don't mind, I'm a Grandpa but with one crew for each 4 guests you wouldn't think it would be necessary) Maybe if the Capt. and crew minded our lines instead of their own they would have had a bit more free time. Also the clearing of the aft deck so they could cast net up bait for the next charter we could have done without. Capt. was fishing with whole wahoo and we were given cut bait and squid. When one spot didn't work out we would move about 250 yds. and try again. I could go on but then it would be just too hard to believe

The captain and the mate were very friendly and helpful.
Don't feel that you get value for your money. There are 2 other all day fishing boats that charge $70 to fish from 8:30 to 4:00 and the other fishes for 9:30 to 4:00. Your boat charges $65 and fishes from 9:30 to 2:30. You get more fishing time on the other 2 boats for your money.
Suggest that you either have an all day fishing trip or have half day trips and not charge a full day fare and not fish for a full day.

Had a great time! Didn't catch as much as I would have liked but that's how it goes sometimes...the crew was excellent! I haven't been fishing in a few years and got my reel tangled. The deckhand fixed me up twice (can't remember his name). I had FUN and will do it again next time I'm in the Keys....

Let me start by saying the captain and mate where great. There were only about nine people on the boat, which made it nice since I have two younger children. The fishing was not very good considering every other boat I've ever been on in the keys Has done exceptional. I have a lot of potential, but need to figure out how to put people on fish. Decent boat, great staff.
