What an amazing time I had fishing aboard The Matador. The boat was amazing. My boss and his wife had taken my co-workers and I down to Virginia Beach to fish with Jake. We had an amazing time and let me tell you, the fishing was out of this world. Never again will I ever catch 3 Big Eye Tuna in one day! The biggest was around 220lbs, the second biggest was around 200lbs and the smallest we caught was 176lbs! Of course we caught more than just Big Eyes. Jake hooked me my first White Marlin which was pretty exciting. We raised a ton of Dorado and a couple Wahoo. The mate was great as well. He kept things running smoothly and was very helpful! Definitely a trip that will be stuck in my memory banks for forever all thanks to Jake!

I will definitely go deep sea fishing again, aboard the Matador!

Had a great time on our fishing trip with Captain Jake Hiles of Metador Charters. Five of us chartered his boat for a 10 hour amberjack run. He was able to customize our trip by working with us to find the best time span, price, and offshore option to fit our needs.He had two mates that were amazingly helpful and friendly. He was extremely knowledgeable and made sure that we all left happy and with plenty of fish. On the downtime, from reeling in huge fish, we got to see a school of dolphins that swam right up next to the boat, close enough to touch.He even stopped to take the extra time to throw a couple more lines out, when he could of just headed straight back to shore. Thanks again to Jake and his mates for an amazing trip!

Captain Jake got us- including 3 small boys right on the water and into the fish. Mate Eddy kept everything running smooth as the boys reeled in the fish. The Captain then got us on to the spot with sharks swarming around with very managable sharks for everyone. Pleasant day on the water with a Captain who is also a father with tons of experience with local fishing.
