Fun day of fishing

We were extremely disappointed that we could not keep the ~20 very nice sized red snappers we caught (my wife and I). Of course, this is state law and not the fault of Captain... read more

Didn't catch anything worth keeping. Only a few people caught something. Don't recommend doing the afternoon trip.

We were extremely disappointed that we could not keep the ~20 very nice sized red snappers we caught (my wife and I). Of course, this is state law and not the fault of Captain Murphy's. They did tell us before we left that the red snappers were not in season. That would have been a great haul. I was very... More

We were able to see many dolphins and get pretty close to them during the 1 1/2 hour ride. The captain and crew were very knowledgable and friendly. Great prices!!

They supply all fishing gear and cleaned the fish we caught for us. It was a very small fee for the cleaning of the fish. We had to take our cooler with drinks and snacks. They had drinks for sale on the boat. My husband and I went as a couple but there were families with children. We really enjoyed... More

We had a great day of fishing today. We caught plenty of fish. A big thank you to Captain Kyle and JD for taking us to some good fishing spots and for being very helpful and friendly. Great fishing experience.

As I have done 3 previous times, I called the office to make a reservation to go out bay fishing with Capt. Jonathan. When I requested him, the lady that answered the phone, Hilda, started being very rude & yelling at me on the phone that he was not working there. Instead of being nice about it saying there was...
