Well within 15 minutes of getting to Captain Mike's fishing spot we caught one 16 pond and one 18 pound king mackerel. I have never in my life spent more time on a fishing trip catching fish then I did on his boat. Not only that but apparently EVERYONE knew he was the best because other boats were trying to... More

In 4 hours we caught 87 FISH! Kept 30 Spanish Mackerel, 2 Kings and 2 Bonitas. We just kept releasing after that bc we were having so much fun! Captain Rich and Helen were wonderful to work with and we couldn't have asked for a better time. We will be back!!

Helen was a gem and had us booked in for a trip out with Captain Rich a week before arriving. The Captain knew where all the spots were and had us smashing fish almost immediately and it never stopped. Great stories, good laughs can't wait to do it again.

We booked our 1/2 day trip with Helen over the phone. 5 of us went on the Above Average 2 with Captain Mike from 8 am to noon. Captain Mike was amazing. He made the trip a lot of fun. The boat was fast and we were fishing in no time. We couldn't hardly keep a pole in the water... More

Called a couple days early to try to split a trip. Helen took our info and went to work. A few days later she had us out on the water. Went out with Capt. Mike at 7am. Within 20 minutes we had our first fish in the box. After catching several in this area we went off shore to try... More

There was 5 of us that went out, none of us have ever been out before. Our captain couldn't even get 3 rods set and it was fish on! Captain Mike worked the poles like a professional. By the end of our time it was a fight to see who had to reel in the fish. Got our limit of... More

Two of us took a 3/4 day trolling fishing and shark fishing trip and had a blast. We had never gone deep sea fishing before so we learned a lot from the trip also. Captain Richard was very professional, kept a clean boat and worked hard to find the best spots to fish and kept our rods well baited. Helen... More

We went with Captain Mike, there were 4 of us, and we had an unbelievable time! My friends wife caught @ 40 pound Barracuda, and the rest of us caught barracuda that were smaller than hers but we're still more than we ever expected! My friend caught @ 15 pound grouper that took about 30 minutes to land! If you... More

We went on a 1/2 day charter with Captain Mike on the Above Average 2. Helen was very friendly and helpful when we booked, helped us get set up in the morning, and took a group picture with the boat. We had a beautiful ride out, and wonderful weather, which can't be controlled, but added to our enjoyment. We did... More

My family and I went out for a half day fishing trip on Memorial Day and had a blast with Captain Richard. He knew the best places to go to have a successful trip. We came back with three tuna, one big king mackerel, and many Spanish mackerel. If anyone is interested in taking a deep sea fishing trip I... More
