Had to delay our fishing excursion one day due to weather which Capt Rich suggested and then accommodated us the next day. We had two couples on our trip and we had a great time. Capt Rich put us over fish right when we stopped our boat and we started catching. We didn't quite catch our limit but came close.... More

Captain must have been in a bad mood today because he wasn't as nice as previous reviews mentioned. He also came pretty close to other fisherman while they were anchored and they were rightfully upset. I would not recommend based on my experience today.

We were very happy with our fishing adventure. We caught our limit of Spanish mackerel. We had them cooked at a local restaurant called Shorty's. They were so good. Bring your own cooler and take fish home!

Above Average Charter was recommended to us from a friend and we are glad we called. Helen made it so easy to book and told us everything we needed to do. Captain Richard was so easy to talk to and made my whole family very comfortable, he got us into a mess of King Mackerel and the lines kept popping.... More

Went out for 4 hours with Captain Mike. Caught a ton of King Mackerel! Then Mike asked if we wanted to have fun and we all said yes. We started bouncing jigs off the top of the water and BOOM! Mackerel's flying out of the water! Like catching fish on a kite string! We had a blast and ate our... More

My wife, 7 year old son, and I took a 4 hour trolling charter with Rich and had a blast! When booking I explained that my wife and son do not eat fish and our preference was to have our entire trip be catch and release. Above Average Charters took care of everything and made the day simple and fun!... More

This was the highlight of our trip. Captain Richard got just as excited as we did every time we got a bite on the line, and that was plenty. He did a wonderful job cleaning and filleting them when we got back to shore and plenty of cooking tips. Helen was extremely helpful when booking, working around my crazy schedule.... More

I've fished with Captain Richard multiple times now and have never been disappointed. On our most recent trip for King mackerel, Richard headed offshore passing multiple other fishing charters on our way out about 8-10 miles. We stopped at our first fishing spot and Richard said "we're here", let out the first line and we literally had a fish on... More

One seasoned fisherman and newbie mate had a great trip in September. Monster barracuda for our memories and pictures to amaze our friends. Captain Rich found the fish, and guided us to success with his patience for the newbie. Staff are friendly and helpful. Helen took our pictures.

Well within 15 minutes of getting to Captain Mike's fishing spot we caught one 16 pond and one 18 pound king mackerel. I have never in my life spent more time on a fishing trip catching fish then I did on his boat. Not only that but apparently EVERYONE knew he was the best because other boats were trying to... More
