I went on a charter with Sweet Jody Fishing with my brother and a friend. The fishing experience wasn't exceptional nor poor, but the deck hands we had to deal with. . . WOW

They mention at the beginning of the charter that the initial price is cheaper because the deck hands work for tips, and tell you that $35 is what is expected from each person on the charter. Ok, fine. The five or six times they RANTED about it through the trip were unnecessary.

More than once myself, or someone I saw, had a question for one of the deck hands. Species identification, catch limits etc. . . They generally offered rude responses if any at all. I caught a fish, brought it up and asked one of the gentleman what it was. He didn't answer me, only proceeded to club the fish five or eight times (still on the hook! the fish wasn't flopping around on deck or anything) and then fling it back telling me 'not a keeper.' I knew it wasn't a keeper, but I still asked a question!

As we began heading back, someone obviously said something one of the deck hands didn't like. This threw him into an at least 20 minute (we timed it for 20, not sure how long it was going before we got there) rant about how his services are unappreciated. He kept going on about how 'if ya'll don't like it you can go somewhere else.' This wasn't a conversation that he had with a few people, I went up on the upper deck to get away from it, and even with him leaning on the back rail of the boat, I could still clearly hear him.

We get back to shore. . . fish cleaning is included in the charter, and everyone knows it's going to take awhile. The fact that the deck hands were taking swigs of Crown Royal aside. . . the guy goes on ANOTHER RANT! He spent a good 12-15 minutes cussing and going on about how 'ya'll don't need all this f*ing fish.' He also complained that people kept too much fish saying 'it's about the experience, not feeding your family for a f*ing month.'

One of the deckhands was slightly less vulgar and rude as the other, we were glad he was the one who cleaned our fish. . . the other guy was leaving obviously large portions on the carcasses. Yes, he was fast, but he was leaving a significant amount of meat on every fish he filleted.

Again, our big issue was that all these items were not side comments made to one or two people, these were discussed in a raised voice for everyone to hear.

If this had been an establishment we could've walked out of, we would have!

I regularly went out with this boat on deep sea fishing trips. About $30 for half a day or $50 for a full day. The captain is great; nice and won't stay in one place if anyone isn't catching anything. He always goes to where the fish are. They have poles and setups and everything there so if you don't have your own don't worry about it. The deck hands will walk around and help you with any problems you might be having.
