We booked a charter with J-String for our family vacation. Captain Eddy was great and worked hard to help us catch some fish. He was fun to visit with and let us all come up on the top deck where we got to see a dolphin. All 6 of us had a chance to catch fish. We caught a bunch... More

It was my first deep sea fishing excursion. I do not fish but was there to enjoy the sunshine. We caught many tuna, a kingfish, and wahoo. It was our friends birthday so we asked Gregory to stay out for the sunset. We saw a fleet of dolphins that jumped and played near the boat for a few miles, it... More

First time in a charter fishing trip. We brought my 13 yr old son along. He was not feeling well when we went on the boat and about halfway thru he was hanging his poor head over the side. But the crew guy got him some paper towels to wipe his face & a bottle of water. Great captain &... More

We went on a 4 and a half hour fishing trip. The captain had a great sense of humor and was very helpful. We caught a 30 pound wahoo and a 30 pound tuna as well as other smaller fish. It was a lot of fun, there was a great, friendly atmosphere, and I would definitely recommend to anyone who... More

Another great day of fishing/catching on the J String. Eddy and Gregory know how to catch fish AND have fun. If you want to catch fish in Aruba, book with these guys. They never disappoint.

We had a nice time on J-String. The captain was attentive. Unfortunately, we did not catch anything. It might have been the time of year...August.

My son and I chartered the boat for a five hour charter. Capt. Gregory told us that he would find the fish and he did not disappoint. He and the mate Jonathan worked hard all day. Jonathan ran 4+ lines and kept the bait fresh. Unlike previous charters I have been on, instead of just one kind of fish, we... More

We have fished with the J string a handful of time now and always catch fish. Boat is clean and has plenty of seating and storage for your personal items. Only complaint is music wasn't loud enough. They had some technical issues that day. They provide water and soda which helps a lot. Just pack some snacks and a camera... More

My husband and I were here on our honeymoon and this was the one thing he wanted to do. We chartered the boat for 4 hours and had an awesome time. The 2 of us were able to spend quality time on our own private charter while also having guides who shared their knowledge with us. Great experience.

Well as our captain puts it, "Everyday is a fishing day, but not a catching day". The captain and first mate worked their butts off trying new areas switching bate. We had our 12 year old daughter with us and she atleast got to pull in something to account for our time on the water, alas all we got to... More
