My husband recently took my two sons and me on our first Deep Sea Fishing Charter. We were staying in Lakeland, but are from Michigan. Thankfully we left extra early, considering the amount of traffic we encountered when entering the City of Clearwater. Once we finally found the booth where The Super Queen was going to be docked we drove around for awhile to find a rare parking spot that had a meter, we put in one hours worth of change. Then walked over and checked in. When we asked about the parking meter, the lady working at your booth told us to put the pass on our rear view mirror and we would be fine. We were all very excited, and after seeing the fish that the other charters brought back we couldn't wait to get our poles in the water. At our first stop, my husband baited all our hooks (which we assumed for the amount of money we paid, would be done by a worker on the boat). My 8 year old son immediately caught a fish, the first one on the entire boat. We thought we were going to have a great fishing day. We couldn't be more wrong! There appeared to be way too many poles in the water. People that were half way down the boat had their lines in front of my family, which was in the back of the boat. The first mate was obviously too busy running around helping everyone else. My husband was not only helping my family, but also others around us when they snagged their lines. Therefore, paying for him was a waste, he barely did any fishing. When no one was really catching fish the captain drove to a 2nd, 3rd, 4th and even 5th spot. My family of four, caught 3 fish, only 2 were keepers during the entire trip. All in all, it was a great experience to go out into the Gulf and fish. But what a disappointment after paying over $200 for my family to not bring home any fish. To add to the disappointment, when walking back to our car, we noticed not one, but two envelopes on my vehicle. When we walked back over to question the lady (not the same one as in the AM), she said oh, you can't park in front of the stores with our pass. We have just paid you over $200 and now we are being ticketed, not once but twice. Her response was, we need to take that up with the City of Clearwater. I just have to say how disappointed I am with your company. Personally, I feel that you overbooked the boat, so there were too many lines in the water, not enough help on the boat and completely insufficient parking. I not only will not recommend you to our family and friends that often travel to Florida, but I will highly recommend they not use you!!!

overbooked crowded no room to stand

the trip was fun for our family, however the boat was way over booked there was not enough room around the railing for everyone to stand, lines were constantly getting tangeled, the crew did a good job of getting around to help everyone 10 to 20 less people would have been much more enjoyable, for just a little more money you can charter a smaller boat and get a much better catch

Never a Bad Day Fishing

WhileIi did not catch anything, I did have a number of hits and enjoyed the 4 hour trip. All my fellow fisherpeople (not to offend the women) were very friendly and all seemed to enjoy the trip. The mates were very helpful and there when you needed them. I would recommend the Queen fleet to all.

half day on the Queen

First time for my son deep sea fishing and the time for rods in the water just felt short, with no luck. Possibly too many rods were in the water this day. The boat moved to 3 spots and it was over to head back be 11am. Boat staff was friendly and willing to assist. Don't think it was worth the 100$ for me and my son.

Went on the 1/2 Day trip with my dad and 7 year old son on 3/30/13. We really had a good time. Did not load the stringer but we did bring home a mess of fish. After Getting off the boat my son said "Thats was some Great Fishing!!". Out of all the things we did in Fla for 5 Days this was his favorite....We will defanatly look the Queen feet up again when we return the next time hopefully for a full day. Thanks

We took the half day trip....wish we would have done the whole day...the crew was very friendly and helpful. If I'm ever back in the area I will definitely be taking the whole day trip! ..Todd is a pro at cleaning the daily catch.. we took our fish to Cooters and had them cook it for us that night . It was absolutely delicious!

First of all you can't beat the price. $60.00 for 4 hours of fishing, they string the fish and then for another 25 cents a fish they fillet them and point you to several close resturaunts that will cook them for you. Perfect for a begginer. Everyone was catching fish. Simple good fun!!!

Good time, Large boat to fish from. You can fish in the sun or shade. Full galley with bathroom and dining area for the family members that don't want to fish. Great time will do it again next year.
