Myself and few coworkers took a charter with capt devlin roussel of Reel Peace charters on January 27,2010. the weather was great sun shining a light breeze the seas were 3 to 5 feet only got a little ruff when we got out of the south pass for a few miles, but this was the worst fishing experiece i have ever had. to start with the capt was not prepared, he only brought with him one box of frozen fish to chum with and only had 3 replacement jigs which happened to be the only thing that we could get a fish to hit. the capt stated several times that the tuna were holding at about 100 feet and we were free lining without any weight to get the junks of bait down to thier level. the capt idea of chuming was to cut up two or three frozen fish and throw them into the water. once we had broken off three jigs he stated that he did not have nay more and we would have to use only one rod with a piece of a jig left. after we could not get any tuna to bite we suggested to the capt that we tie up to a rig and do some bottom fishing so we could at least have some fish to take home which he replied that he was not a bottom fisherman he was a sports fisherman. once we got back to marine he said we were in luck the gas pumps were closed so we would not have to wait for him to refuel but not to worry his guage was accurate a clear sign we were about to get took. then once he gave us the total and we paid him he was shocked that we did not give him a tip,i'll give him one now be prepared and work on your customer servide skills we paid to catch fish not go on a boat ride. so if you are looking to catch tuna look elsewhere dont take a charter with reel peace charters unless you want an expensive Boat ride.

A comment titled: reel peace charter in response to a report titled: reel peace charters a hoax

lets make one thing perfectly clear i now the risk of going fishing i have been fishing since i was big enough to hold a rod and reel and have gone many times and not caught a thing. the problem is the the capt was not prepared and would not even consider changing the type of fish we were going after. i will retract my statement on the gas after doing some research the flow meter is accurate to within 1 to 2 gallons. and as far as no service from bass pro shops you must nat have ever shopped the one's in alabama.
