Above Average Charter was recommended to us from a friend and we are glad we called. Helen made it so easy to book and told us everything we needed to do. Captain Richard was so easy to talk to and made my whole family very comfortable, he got us into a mess of King Mackerel and the lines kept popping.... More

Went out for 4 hours with Captain Mike. Caught a ton of King Mackerel! Then Mike asked if we wanted to have fun and we all said yes. We started bouncing jigs off the top of the water and BOOM! Mackerel's flying out of the water! Like catching fish on a kite string! We had a blast and ate our... More

My wife, 7 year old son, and I took a 4 hour trolling charter with Rich and had a blast! When booking I explained that my wife and son do not eat fish and our preference was to have our entire trip be catch and release. Above Average Charters took care of everything and made the day simple and fun!... More

This was the highlight of our trip. Captain Richard got just as excited as we did every time we got a bite on the line, and that was plenty. He did a wonderful job cleaning and filleting them when we got back to shore and plenty of cooking tips. Helen was extremely helpful when booking, working around my crazy schedule.... More

I've fished with Captain Richard multiple times now and have never been disappointed. On our most recent trip for King mackerel, Richard headed offshore passing multiple other fishing charters on our way out about 8-10 miles. We stopped at our first fishing spot and Richard said "we're here", let out the first line and we literally had a fish on... More

One seasoned fisherman and newbie mate had a great trip in September. Monster barracuda for our memories and pictures to amaze our friends. Captain Rich found the fish, and guided us to success with his patience for the newbie. Staff are friendly and helpful. Helen took our pictures.

Well within 15 minutes of getting to Captain Mike's fishing spot we caught one 16 pond and one 18 pound king mackerel. I have never in my life spent more time on a fishing trip catching fish then I did on his boat. Not only that but apparently EVERYONE knew he was the best because other boats were trying to... More

In 4 hours we caught 87 FISH! Kept 30 Spanish Mackerel, 2 Kings and 2 Bonitas. We just kept releasing after that bc we were having so much fun! Captain Rich and Helen were wonderful to work with and we couldn't have asked for a better time. We will be back!!

Helen was a gem and had us booked in for a trip out with Captain Rich a week before arriving. The Captain knew where all the spots were and had us smashing fish almost immediately and it never stopped. Great stories, good laughs can't wait to do it again.

We booked our 1/2 day trip with Helen over the phone. 5 of us went on the Above Average 2 with Captain Mike from 8 am to noon. Captain Mike was amazing. He made the trip a lot of fun. The boat was fast and we were fishing in no time. We couldn't hardly keep a pole in the water... More
