Showed up at the boat to find Jesse, the mate, preparing bait and getting the boat ready. Capt. Bill asked us what type of fishing we wanted to do and... read more explained what had been biting and we made a plan. We wanted to troll but the troll had been slow so we hit a reef while waiting for a report on the troll from their sister ship. Capt. Bill put on a good reef and Jesse got us setup for some fast action on Yellowtail. Also got a Grouper (out of season) and a nice Mutton Snapper. Once we got our limit on Yellowtail, we headed out to a wreck and hooked up on some big Amberjacks. Troll never produced that day so we stuck with reef and wreck and had nonstop action and a freezer full of fish. Jesse filleted them all up for us and gave us a great place to get some cooked that night. Definitely give the Linda D a shot and take some fish over to Dante’s to have an amazing dinner with your fresh catch!

I went out on a full day fishing charter aboard the Linda D V with my father this past Monday. Our captain for this trip was Captain Jay and our... read more first mate was Patrick. We were set up to leave Charter Boat Row at 7 AM and actually ended up arriving around 20 minutes or so earlier. After a short talk with Captain Jay we pushed off early and were quickly trolling for some fish. Whenever you book the boat they ask what you are looking to catch and I had noted that starting out with some mahi before trying for something bigger would be nice although anything was good for us. Even if it was by coincidence, we ended up following that script exactly with some mahi on not too long after getting the lines into the water. We ended up getting mahi on a number of times throughout the day which was nice. First mate Patrick talked to us throughout the day and worked hard making sure that there wasn't any seaweed on any of the lines. With the amount in the water that day he was almost constantly bringing one line or another in to get rid of some seaweed it had collected. That seaweed also meant that we couldn't fish with any wire which was a problem later in the day whenever they thought that they had a wahoo bite. Unfortunately we never did end up getting that big fish on although it wasn't from the lack of Patrick and Captain Jay trying to get us one. At the end of the day we ended up with 11 dolphinfish caught and 3 more that we had let go due to them being small. Overall it ended up being a fun day for both my dad and myself and we left with a bag full of mahi which would be dinner that night for our group.
The bottom line for me is that I wouldn't hesitate to book with Linda D Sportfishing again in the future. We caught a number of mahi which was nice and they tried hard to land us that bigger fish which both my dad and I appreciated.
We had an awesome time on our trip! Tom and Alan did a wonderful job getting us on the fish. We enjoyed our time with them and the great conversations.... read more Alan's ability to help me with my skills and catching the biggest fish of the day was super!
