Our trip was an afternoon trip and we didn't catch anything. The captain did try and even spent extra time out. Although there wasn't a good catch, it was still a great time on the water. The mates were great too and made our trip fun. I hope they faired well after the hurricane, they're good people!!!

Great crew, great adventure! Everyone in our party caught at least 1 fish and some caught 2-3 each! The crew made sure everyone was having a good time and help those less experienced enjoy the art of fishing!

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.
