Outstanding is only word for it. Caught fish and Justin a very cool skipper. We were in the right spots at the right time which meant we had fish to take home.

This was our second time out with fish tales and each trip gets better and better. We caught too many croaker to count, we caught a 4 foot shark, went crabbing, and caught 120 clams in no time at all. Love the entire trip Captain Andrew and Ashley were great. Cannot wait to go out again next year.

We got lucky to find Capt Tim and Fish Tales this morning. Our orginal charter was canceled late last night due to engine troubles so we took a chance this morning and drove to the marina.

Nothing huge but steady action and we caught enough for a meal. Captain Pete and mate Rick were friendly and helpful. No sharks on our... More

Only one word to describe it... Awesome. Catching two sharks, a sting ray and 7 fish in two hours was beyond cool. Being escorted back to marina by dozens of dolphins was the icing on the cake!!! Loved it.

We went out during Mid-July on a two hour fishing trip. Our captain was Tim and he was the most friendly and knowledgable captain we met. We fought, Whiting, Sea Robins, Crabs, Flounder, and even stumbled upon a Stingray. Tim kept us catching fish the whole two hours and even kept us out longer because we were having such a... More

Went out today with captain Tim. He did a great job teaching the kids how to clam and crab. We caught beautiful blue crab, whiting, and fresh steamers! We will be back next year for sure! Thanks Capt. Tim

We took a 4 hour fishing and clamming tour this week and it was just lovely. 5 of us total with 3 kids, 5, 8 and 14. We learned some fun facts and caught a shark and some king fish. Clamming was super fun! Highly recommend giving this a go when in the area!
