Great day fishing, not a good start

This one is hard to rate. 5 of us were going bay fishing, we arrived at Bunky's at 6 am, an hour before departure. Everything was going great. We were disappointed to find out... read more

I called in the middle of the week asking about morning trip of Friday. My daughter was here from Oklahoma visiting and wanted to do some fishing and spend time with me. This was very important to me. I was assured there would not be an issue. Arrived early on Friday. Total of five people showed up. They would not... More

We wanted to rent a boat that would hold 14 people. They only had a charter boat and said we could use that but that a captain would drive us. I specifically asked when I booked it if we could bring our own poles to fish (simple "throw back" fishing.) The girl said, "oh yea. No problem." On the DAY... More

The only reason we chartered with Bunky’s is to catch Rockfish. This was our third trip with Bunky’s. Last year’s outing was good, we caught our limit and also caught other fish. This year on Bunky’s recommendation, we decided to book his Sunday, 11 June trip (with 7 days’ notice) instead of a trip in July. He stated people who... More

This place takes crooked to a whole new level. Wow. We usually organize our trip in July but Brian said that we would have to go in June in order to get Rockfish. I called to other places nearby and they warned me about Bunky's that they were crooks. Man, I should have listened! They said they don't want to... More

You might have to go to Alice's Restaurant to get everything you want, but Bunky's has a lot going on that Alice never dreamed of like primo Rockfish fishing trips, all the bait and tackle you could possibly want as well as ammo and other necessities in addition to jet skis, kayaks, boats of all sizes.....try and find that at...

Our family took a Fourth of July early morning charter. Our captain, Mitch, and the mate, John, were exceptional. They ran a smooth craft and kept us busy catching fish almost the entire six hours. They had bait, tackle, fish, and conversation all covered. Great trip!

This one is hard to rate. 5 of us were going bay fishing, we arrived at Bunky's at 6 am, an hour before departure. Everything was going great. We were disappointed to find out rods were $5 to rent, other places rods are included. Once on the boat, about 3 minutes before departing, we found out bait was not included,... More

Solomon's Island and the Bay are great places to visit if you like the water and enjoy boating. Bunky's seemed to be one of the bigger places there for Charter boats and rental boats. They have 3 nice charter boats for fishing and their location is very good.. lots of parking. If you plan to catch fish, just Charter, don't... More

Our group had an awesome time. Captain Simon did not stay in one place too long if they were not biting. We caught spot, perch, croaker and even rockfish.....everyone in our group got at least one big rockfish which was awesome. Captain Simon settled my nerves when the waves were a little rough...he remained calm and knew what he was... More

After my father died, we chartered a boat from Bunky's so 20 family & friends could experience a farewell ride with my dad's ashes. For the quoted price of $480, we expected to be out at least a couple hours. Instead we were out less than an hour from the time we left the dock, until we returned. Our quick... More
