We had a fun time on Bite Me 6 over Thanksgiving week. Some in our party had never been offshore fishing, and it was quite a treat for them to grab a rod and sit in the fighting chair. We caught quite a few small tuna and then went out further to try for bigger game, but with no luck.... More

We went out on Bite Me #3 with Tommy & Andy on Saturday, Nov. 26. Let me start by saying this: I wanted to catch ANY fish because catching a fish I can't see at home was the point for me. I didn't care about the size or type of fish caught. Andy seemed bored and barely said anything to... More

While the middle of October during a full moon is desidedely a poor time to try to fish, my mom and i had a wonderful time aboard the boat, and enjoyed being on the water in the early morning air. The view of the sun rising over the island made my entire trip memorable.

My 12 yr old son and I went out with Captain Rick on the Bite Me 5 for a half day fishing charter and had a great time! Rick was personable, informative, and most importantly, put us on the fish. My son started us out by catching a small skipjack tuna and I followed with another of the same. After... More

Even though we called day-of to make a last minute reservation, our day was amazing! Stephanie was great organizing the charter and answer every question. Captain Brad and first mate Nate were amazing. We ended up catching a huge blue marlin - 491 lbs! From coaching us on reeling it in, to helping get it in the boat (maybe even... More

October is not the best time to go deep see fishing and especially not for Marlin. That being said, the crew was very honest about how the fishing success had been. They really gave it their all. They tried all kinds of lures, bait and trolling activities to get us fish. We were not successful catching big game fish, but... More

Unfortunately not peak season to catch a marlin but the charter was very informative. Talked fishing with the skipper (can't remember his name sorry, but was a farther/son team). Also provided lots of other local information which was helpful. Will be back another time when the fish are biting!
