I fished a full day. Before I go any further, let me say this wasn’t my first time on the ocean. I fished at least 12 different charter or party boats in both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans in the last 10 years. This includes some 3-8 day trips on the Pacific. The pros of this boat are that breakfast... More

Had multiple friends take some of the other party boats, and heard of their horrible experiences, I was very hesitant to book this, but glad I read the positive reviews - and they all held true. The crew was constantly helping anglers, always being patient and friendly. NONE of the crew fished - all they did was help. The captain... More

My son (9 y/o) and I went on the full day trip w/ Obsessions Charters. I can't say enough about the experience! The crew was fantastic, and the fishing was great too! We caught about 20 fish between us. My son caught a 3' Atlantic Sharpnose Shark and a 9-10' Sandbar Shark! He also caught a few Red Snappers, Grunts... More

We aren't 'fishermen' but the guys took the time to make sure we had the best chance of catching fish. We were pulling in snapper, trigger fish, bass, nurse sharks...... Been... More

Went out on a night trip for some shark fishing, and had a great time. Caught multiple sharks and enjoyed the trip. Boat is rocky when its anchored so take something if you are worried about sea sickness.

Booked a Weds Shark trip hoping for the best. Unfortunately my girlfriend and I caught no Sharks. Actually we didn't catch much of anything along with many other attendees this night. A few sharks were caught towards the back of the boat but from what we understand were caught using bait different from what we were provided. Although you cant... More
