“Perfect fishing trip! ”

Capt. Chris took us on an amazing trip! We had our 7 & 9 year old children with us, and he really worked hard to land us in sweet spots where the fish were! My son’s first catch was a horse-eyed jack (photo), and he also caught a very impressive barracuda. We caught many different fish that day, the most being yellow tailed snapper– which Chris cleaned up for us for dinner. (Delicious!)

Chris was super knowledgable & so helpful in getting my shy daughter excited to participate. She almost landed a huge Caribbean reef shark, but the line (light tackle) snapped just at the end!

All in all, it was a great day on a nice big boat with a great captain. Next trip, my husband wants to book Chris for a full day, off shore!

Captain Colin, Chris and their team, especially Adrianne are the nest in St Thomas for offshore and inshore. Booked them last Saturday for a half-day, extended a bit, was worth every cent.

The purpose was to introduce offshore to my 14-year-old son, who is mostly a lake a river fisherman. They understood immediately. Setting up the tackle, bait, chumming and hooking an amazing number of fish, let the photos explain…

When we got back to the dock, we had 56 fish in total, plus two sport Mahi Mahi, both over 55 inches and 37 lbs.

The boat was great for us and easily larger groups, no problem with the offshore surf and Saturday was a bit more rough than normal.

But the magic was Colin and Chris who made everything seem so easy.

Call them and they’ll give you an adventure and memory of a lifetime!

  1. We booked a 6 hour off shore for my son wedding. Went 8 out of 9 on Tuna.Captain worked very hard for us on catching bait fish and on the Tuna. Made my day seeing my boys fought the Tuna.Captain Colin is very good at what he does. Wished I had booked the ten hour trip, but we had to get back for rehearsal
