Had to wait 15 minutes for the mate to show up. Caught one fish in the first 15 minutes and had 1 other bite. That was all the action we had. Never left sight of land, so not so deep fishing. Trolling was faster than it should have been. Will definitely try another caption on our return trip. Had to... More

My husband and I went out w/ Rudy and Nick last Monday and to say it was action packed is an understatement! First my husband caught a good sized Barracuda- which we returned. Then we both got queasy and sea sick. I got better quickly, my husband was sicker longer. As he recovered the real action started. I, with the... More

My wife and I had the opportunity to take a trip with Rudy and Eddie when we were on St. Maarten last week and had a splendid time. We encountered rain and sun, waves and calm and some fish caught. The day was great. What made it the best was the conversation with both men about their lives and ours,... More

What a great day with Rudy and his first mate Nick. First Class guys with tons of experience with lots of laughs. We had a triple header of mahi mahi in the morning. I have been fishing for 30 years and never have done that. I have been skunked many times but thats fishing. Rudys boat is well maintained and... More

We went on this fishing trip in November and it was a major disappointment. Rudy was nice and accommodating, but the fishing experience was terrible. I've been on many fishing charters and I've always felt like the captain did everything possible to put you on fish. We rode around for four hours and only got two bites from barracudas. Rudy...

Hello sir, Since i started in 1984 i never could have control to mother nature and every true fisherman will agree with me. That day we caught two Barracudas but sometime i come back skunked and make people happy by just being on a boat enjoying my company and my stories. It has been a pleasure to answer you honestly...

Good day mister Harold, I never promised any kind of fish. Sometime i get Mahi Mahi when the people want to catch tunas. Every day is a fishing day but not a catching day. The sea in the Caribbean is very often choppy created by the Trade winds breeze. Fast trolling is one of the best technique for the fast... More

Only caught a couple of barracuda's but was a good trip. Rudy was good to work with and a fair man. I read all the reviews and find the negative ones very hard to believe, thank you Rudy for a good trip.

Headed out on the water with Rudy and mate JP. We had four in our party, two couples. our first time out on water for deep sea fishing. We're looking forward to giving it a go at this type as we typically do river or lake fly fishing. We booked a morning 1/2 day excursion. The winds were about 15... More

Rudy was an excellent host. We had good weather and caught three decent size fish. We lost a 25 lb Mahi Mahi but it was a great fight. My son landed a decent Bonito (Tuna family). We recommend the half day morning trip to all ages especially if the seas are not too bad.
