Get a captain that will stay awake and that wants to put you on fish. I love to fish, grew up in South Florida fishing all the time, I've been looking forward to coming out here fishing for over a year now, and it was nothing but a waste of time and money. Thank you fishbooker

It was a good trip (more for adults). Would’ve liked to have the kids throw some lines in the water but difficult to do when trolling. Great experience when hooking a marlin and seeing it fly out of the water!

Yes! We went out twice, on two half day trips. The first trip we didn't even get a bite but that is fishing! Sometimes you don't. The boys really wanted to try again so we booked a second half day trip and both boys each caught a fish. So fun but know you have to be patient!

Don’t expect to catch anything so if you do it’ll be a great bonus. Fish don’t always cooperate with anglers so go with the flow and enjoy your time out on the ocean.

Ask if there is live bait on board for other means of fishing in case trolling is dead.

Depends on the day, for fishing, but you could not ask for a better captain. regardless of fish. Great price for private time. We will request him again.

We had a wonderful time aboard the Kona Blue. The crew was awesome and the fishing was excellent! Quite a rush to catch a 200 lb Blue Marlin!

The fish calendar says it would be a little slow, but we found the fishing good and the action exciting.

I believe that fishing/catching is spotty during the winter. I’ve been told by several crews that fishing is better in the summer

Don't expect to catch anything and be happy with a half day boat ride. Fishing is hit and miss in July.
