We also spent a half day with Captain Bill August. Steve, the mate, has tons of experience across the world and is a great guy. Bill, well, he spent the whole time on the bridge, never saying a thing and sitting there with his earplugs in.
After trolling around for about 1 hour, Steve suggested we make a rig change, and Bill decided against it, saying lets stick with what we got. Then we got a bite, but too bad it was a length of rope floating in the water.
After 2 hours, we wanted to change up from marlin fishing to maybe mahi or wahoo or something. Catching something is better than nothing. Bill was at best unpleased with that. Still, we caught not a thing.
Again, knowing fishing is not an exact science, it was disheartening to see other boats coming in flying flags of what they caught. Capt Bill's only comment for most of the trip came once we docked, saying how should we square up the bill and "thanks for gambling with us".
I think Steve would be best suited on another boat so his talents do not go wasted. As for the Alibi, we will not be stepping foot on it again.
My friends and I went out on Alibi 1 the bertram 35. The boat has had extensive up grades from the last time we were on the boat. Captain Tony Clark continaully changed out the lurers until we hooked into a big Blue Marlin. It weighed in at 678 pounds! What a trip, can't wait till next time.
My wife and I have fished with Tony 6 times now over the past 3 years and have caught a blue marlin every time, even finishing 2nd in the $177,000 2007 Maui Jim Fire cracker fishing Tournment. He is an exclent skipper and the boat is great to fish from, We're even taking along our 4 year old grandson this time to fish with Tony.
Fished with Captain Tony Clark on Alibi 1 and a second day on Alibi 2 with Captain Scott. Both days were in early July 2007. We targeted the Ono and what a great idea this turned out to be. We had over 20 Ono ranging in size from 20 to 55 pounds!
Fantastic crew on both boats and Alibi 2 a custom 42 foot Uniflite is very comfortable with a huge cockpit.
Thanks Alibi Sport Fishing!
Went out on the Alibi in September 2006. The new owners are great. Captain Tony Clark is a great people person. Scott the deckhand was friendly and worked very hard. My family and I look forward our next trip.
We went out on a half-day over the week of August 5 - 12, 2005.
Bill is at-best unfriendly. He spent the entire trip on the bridge with his earplugs in! His mate, Steve is a great guy and why he is with Bill, I have no clue. Clearly, Steve knows his fishing.
After trolling for over two hours, Steve suggested changing the rig and Bill's response was, "for a day like today, we've got a good set up". When you've been doing the same thing with no results, it's time to change.
At the end of the trip, all we got was a "thanks for gambling with us" from Bill.
We've been skunked before fishing. It's part of the game. We've never been treated with distain before.
