I've never been on a deep sea fishing trip and had to catch my own live bait on the way out. We spent the first 30 minutes catching live bait fish from under the bridge. There weren't enough rods for everyone and if your line got tangled they didn't have another one ready to use. Didn't catch enough bait fish so we ran out pretty quickly once we started fishing. The deck hands only put out the trolling lines after I spotted a school of fish hitting the top of the water. We caught a few Red Snapper and Amberjack (out of season) within the first two spots, but left even when the fish were still biting. Captain Dale slowly went from point A to point B to point C etc, even when the trolling lines weren't out. (I guess he was conserving fuel) When the first line broke, there wasn't one rod ready to swap out so that you could keep fishing while they fixed it. With two hours left the deck hand assured us that we were going to stop at another spot to catch Red Snapper. We never dropped another line in the water or stopped. We trolled the whole way back. Seems like we could have fished at least one more spot on the way in. We arrived at the dock 30 minutes early. I've been on other boats that get you from point A to point B quickly so that you get more time with your hook in the water actually having a chance to catch fish. The fish were biting, the boat wasn't fishing. During the six hour trip we caught 5 Red Snapper, 3 Spanish Mackerol, and 1 Bonita between 7 people. When you pay $1400 you don't expect to have to catch your own live bait, leave late, and come back early.

We reserved a fishing charter with Salty Dog and had a GREAT time! Caught the biggest fish of my life! We saw dolphins and had so much fun! I would recommended these guys for sure! They was so nice to the kids and interacted with them. It was awesome to see the kids get in the action! Great Outfit!
We have used Rob's Inshore Fishing 3 times now and have never been disappointed. They know the water and will put you on fish quickly. They work very hard to make sure you have a great time. Fun guys to go fishin' with, we are looking forward to the next outing already.Jim C.Monroe, WI
What a perfect way to experience the Gulf Coast. Sunning, swimming and picnic on the deck. Fantastic sunset complete with dolphins. Professional freindly staff made our cruise memorable....can't wait to go back!
Went out on a trip today with Capt. John and had a great time. He definitely put us on the fish and taught us some new techniques. I highly recommend him for inshore fishing in Orange Beach or Pensacola.
This cruise was the highlight of our vacation. Capt. Will and his crew are the best! The weather was beautiful and our trip aloud us to take in all that this part of the Gulf Coast has to offer.
Best saltwater fishing trip i ever been on! Caught a awesome huge red snapper. Water was like glass!
