Let me start by saying there were 15 people on board and only one person caught 2 fish because he went deeper then what the crew told the rest of us otherwise he probably wouldn't have caught them. Everyone was getting tangled up the lines were going under the boat, they didn't know how to position the boat for everyone... More

We were two couples on this eight hour fishing cruise out of Port Isabel. The weather for the first week in September was typical...hot! The A/C in the cabin of the boat was not working. The stale air in the cabin was a recipe for instant seasickness, so consequently we stayed on deck on the very shallow and hard bench... More

Capt. Evan and his assistant JJ made our trip exceptional. We had gone to another bay fishing boat, it was good, however Osprey with this crew was outstanding. We ended up going fishing 3 times with this crew while we stayed at SPI. We could easily tell, they love fishing, and they wanted us to catch fish, and we did!... More

Our trip was scheduled for Tues. at 4pm and at 2pm they called to tell us it was canceled due to not enough people booking. We were offered an 8 hour fishing trip... More
