Fished with friends Feb 25th and we had such a great time that we fished again on Feb 28. We can't recommend Deep Drop Fishing Charters highly enough!!! The day starts when you are picked up at you hotel and promptly shuttled to the marina where you depart from. It doesn't take long to get to the highlight of the day - The Fishing - and it is a blast. A great time pulling up all sorts of fish from depths of over 1000 feet!!!! The fishing is easy and therefore suitable for even the most novice fisherman. A great excursion for couples, friends or families with children. Howard and Man O'War are very experienced, knowledgeable, personable and will guide you along the way. The first day we focused on deep dropping and enjoyed a busy morning as we brought in Goldeneye Snapper, Silky Snapper and even a Lionfish!!! The second time out we decided to troll for Marlin. We didn't catch a Marlin but did however catch a nice Wahoo. We then did some more deep dropping, catching more Goldeneye Snappers. Even had a large shark take one of the fish on the way up. A member of our group fought it for an hour before its razor sharp teeth cut the line. What a thrill!!! We also highly recommend you to do the 'Catch and Dine'. Howard and Man O'war will filet the fish - and the fine folks at the Seahorse Grill will cook it up with your choice of sides. We opted for this both times and was it ever awesome. Beer batter and Cajun were our choices. Yum !! What a fantastic way to finish the day. Dine on fresh fish while you overlook the marina. As mentioned, we can't recommend Deep Drop Fishing Charters highly enough. You'll love it. Thanks again Howard and Man O'War - we will be back.

Howard and his first mate "man o war" (can't spell it) did a great job! He is very quick and professional with his communication and knowledgeable on fishing. He wanted to make sure we had the best experience (and we did)! We had to reschedule a couple times due to weather and he was very helpful and flexible which was great!

We ate one of our catches at the yacht club and it was so good and a great value!

Everything was great and we would do it again next time we come back!

Captain Howard was welcoming & co, made my four children feel great on the day. Captain Howard is honest & friendly, his fishing method is not hard work which made it fun & easy for the kids. Catching fish with out the hard work put a smile on the kids face each time.

Once docked Captain Howard made sure the food was cooked perfect, at the right price.

I wanted to go out and get a fishing rod and reel in the fish. We basicly sat in the boat, watch the them bait the fish, let us feel the line and hit the red button when they thought they had a fish.. Wow....such excitement? NOT! For the money it was not what was expected. Trolling....I know what trolling is all about, it's not speeding the boat up and having fishing lines out. Trolling is a relaxing, slow boat and enjoying the excitment of catching a fish on your own.

Totally disappointed with this trip. Too much to pay for sitting in a boat and watching them do all the work. The pictures they took....you held the fish close to the camera so it looked really big. One was ok....but the others, small. Stated on their website "had some rod benders" OMG! Don't make me laugh! NOT!

Don't plan on going to the bathroom in that dinky boat. Scary and my man used the ocean facilities.

The boat was the "Lucky B*stard"........wasn't lucky or fun for me and my friends.

Your Husband Trim Trout reserved our bottom fishing charter from our website which clearly says we fish a 30 feet center console open fishing boat. Photos of boat are on website and Facebook page. We have porta-potty in the forward cabin which was offered to all guests.

Prior to boarding you and your group was offered the opportunity to abort the trip and everyone still want to go.

Your husband booked a bottom fishing charter of which lots of lovely fish was caught ( please see pictures on our website ... trip dated January 3, 2014) including a huge Amberjack. Over a dozen fish was caught.

We troll at 7 knots for Tunas of which none strike that day.

I am sorry you found it in your heart to submit such a review after "Thanking Me" so much at the dock --- even hugging --- and leaving a tip...

Best of luck to you in life.
Howard Martin, Captin

Early morning fishing trip with Captain Howard and crew.
On time pick up from our hotel and a great mornings fishing.
Deep drop fishing impressive - we were catching fish every time !
Trolling on the way back to the dock, and fishing success then too.
Captain Howard organized for the restaurant at the dock to cook some of the fish for us. Fresh tuna sashimi, then steamed red snapper - amazingly good.
Definitely recommended
