“Had a great time fishing with Pitboss!”
I was on vacation with my family near OC, and my cousin and I decided that we wanted to take our boys out fishing while we were there. I checked out several options on trip advisor, and reached out to Capt. Jeff after reading positive reviews on the Pitboss Facebook page. I’m glad I called him! We made arrangements for the trip a couple of weeks prior to vacation, and Jeff was awesome about staying in touch and providing fishing reports to help guide what we wanted to do. My sons are 9 and 7 and this was their first salt water trip, so I was concerned about making sure they caught the salt water fishing bug like I’ve had my whole life. Lucky for me, Jeff is also a passionate sportsman who wanted to make sure the kids had a great time too. In the days leading up to our trip, the fishing reports weren’t so hot, and on the evening before, Jeff called to advise that it was pretty dead and offered to allow us to cancel the trip we had planned without any issues. I was very impressed by that. His honesty in doing so speaks volumes about the level of service you’ll get with him. After talking things over, we decided to take the chance on a boatload of bored kids and head out anyway. We were met at the dock by Jeff and Karen, who greeted us warmly and set a friendly tone for what would become a great morning of fishing. We decided to go out for croakers since they seem to bite regardless of what other species are doing, with the thought that they’d provide the best chance for action for the kids. In no time, my oldest caught his first one and the fun was on. Both Capt. Jeff and Mate Karen were just fantastic with the kids. Their energy and patience made for a great day. We ended up finishing the trip with enough fish on board for a great dinner, and the boys all got to take a swim to cool off on the ride back too. If you’re looking to take a day trip fishing in the OC area, you’ll do well to go with the Pitboss crew. They’re friendly, capable, great with kids, easy going, and above all honest. I look forward to another day on the water in the yellow boat next summer when I’m back in town. Thanks for an awesome trip, Jeff!
Jeff is an outstanding captain and can truly put you on the fish! Myself and friends have fished with Pitboss Fishing several times and Captain Jeff hasnt failed to put us on the fish! From monster blue fish on light tackle to drifting for flounder, you surely won’t be disappointed booking a trip with The Pitboss!!
I have hunted with Capt. Jeff Coats and have witnessed first hand his professionalism and dedication to the client. I fully intend to return to Ocean City to fish with him in the not too distnat future. Belive me folks Jeff will do what he has to in order to get you what you came for!
I took my sons out on their first fishing trip yesterday. I’m glad that we decided to go with Jeff and Karen at Pitboss Fishing! You guys were outstanding! The kids loved the trip and had a blast fishing with you. Facebook people, don’t be scared away by the fact that Pitboss hasn’t been around very long and doesn’t have as many reviews as some other charters do. I can absolutely say from my experience that he’s an honest Captain and you can’t go wrong if you book a trip with him. I’m sure that I’ll be going out with him again on a future trip to DelMarVa.
Jeff did a fantastic job taking us out for flounder and stripers. He made sure that we had a safe and enjoyable trip, while giving great pointers on fishing, hunting, and the local area. I highly recommend him for a more personal trip than you get on the head boats. And his boat is just icing on the cake – awesome all around day.
Had a great day on the water with Captain Jeff and first mate Matt! Caught lots of flounder and got to see and learn about the area! Very enjoyable and knowledgeable guys to be around. They even guided my 4 year old niece to her first flounder….the biggest of the day! I know we’ll be back for another trip!
Awesome time with Captain Jeff and First mate Karen! Very knowledgeable and took us to a perfect place. A truly wonderful experience! Highly recommend.
