Took my 2 sons fishing on the Silver King on July 26th. We stayed out for 3 hrs 50 minutes. We split the cost with 1 other person,$720.00. We had a $400.00 boat ride. Did not touch a pole all day. The so-called captain thru out 2 lines , trolling for King Mackrel. His mate was young and I don't think he knew what he was doing. He got a line wrapped around the prop 2 times. The other person that came caught a Barracuda and a shark. He spent a good 45 minutes on the shark, letting 1 of my sons reel for a while, and then my other son reel for about 5 minutes. This was not the fishing experience that I wanted for me and my sons. They are 18 and 20 years old and may not ever want to do this again. We would have had a better time on a $65.00 party boat. I don't care if I had only cast out a line and caught nothing, but, again , a pole never touched my hand. I will do my homework next time before booking a trip in Destin and do not recommend the SilverKing and captain Mike to anyone. This person will only take your money and not show you the fishing trip you expect.

Once I was involved in a boating accident. I was having a good time, taking a ride on my boat.  Then there was a collision. That day I was hospitalized.
