“Not much of a fishing trip”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

First let me say the experience of fishing on a charter boat with 30 or 40 other people is something new to me, it was a good overall experience overall. Got out to fish right off the jeddies, there was no fish to be had there so the captain moved us around several times to find the fish, it was just a bad day for fishing, moved 7 times to try to find the fish in a 4 hr period and no fish. the whole boat that day caught one fish and very little to no bites, just a bad day of fishing or it might have been the bait we had since we were only provided squid. The crew of the boat were ok, On college guy that was on was pretty cool talking to everyone, very friendly. The captain and the other guy on the boat not so friendly but hey we went to fish not to make friends. To bad we never did find the fish. Better luck next time....

“This wasn't fishing…it was catching”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

This was a whole lot of fun for all of us. Everyone on the boat caught fish and we took about 3 lbs of fillets of sand trout and whiting home. The guides took extremely good care of us. Worth every penny. We will be back.

“Family fun and many fish”
Reviewed 18 July 2014 via mobile

We have been on fishing charters in MN and FL and this was by far the best fishing trip we have ever had. The boat was clean and the crew was fun and professional. From keeping bait stocked, taking fish off the hook and stringing them for us, and keeping us safe from dangerous species (catfish, stingray, etc) Michael was a very friendly and helpful guide. He also took the time to walk around and show and tell everyone about the more unusual fish that others caught. On this 4 hour morning charter, we caught the most fish that we've ever caught on a fishing charter (21). Everyone on the boat caught similar numbers too. We also saw dolphins in the bay, so we didn't have to go and pay more for a separate dolphin watch. We weren't even docked yet when my 11 year old son and 15 year old daughter asked if we could go again tomorrow. After docking, Michael also filleted our fish so we could enjoy them for dinner. The Danny B is a very fun family experience, worth the price!
