  • Captain Jake did a great job putting us on fish. We caught several different types from black sea bass, spade and eel. These were the good eatin' fish. When things slowed down in one area they put us ...  more »

  • Jake is a very professional Captain. He really knows what he is doing. Great trip. I wouldn't fish with any other charter captain.
  • Highly Recommend. Awesome. Awesome. Awesome. 7/31/14 ~80 F, calm winds, and fair seas. 430 am: Met Cpt Jake and 1st mate Mike promptly at Rudee Inlet in Va Beach. Brought a cooler with drinks/sandwiches. Mike debriefed us on a loose schedule of the day's events. Targeting sport-fish ~70-75 miles out in the Gulf Stream. 3 hours there and 3 back. 5 of us: four men and one 100lb 18 year old woman (who reeled in bigger and as many marlin as the men). 830 am: Reached the Gulf stream, Jake and Mike deep bottom fished for live trolling bait called Tinker Mackerel. 9 am: As we were catching Tinker, one white marlin hook and catch 930: Still filling the live bait well with Tinkers, literally watched a white marlin come up to the side of the boat and take one of the Tinker off a rig that had not been sent out yet. That's 2x white Marlin before 10 am. 10-12pm: Trolled and caught a few more white marlin 12-2pm: Continued to troll; caught a mahi mahi, a few more white marlin, and a ~50 lb yellow fin tuna. Stopped occasionally to get some more Tinker, resulting in a byproduct catch of a ~20lb gray tilefish (delicious table fare). 2-3pm: Had 5 white marlin hooked at once. You'd think it be chaos on the deck, nope, Mike and Jake guided us through the situation, landed 4 of them. Do NOT yank hard on the pole, it'll rip the bait/hook right out of the bill. Dammit. Jake will let you know what to do and not to do. 3pm-6pm: Headed home. Fish were cleaned at the dock for a very reasonable price. Delicious table fare for many and 10 white marlin catch/release memories and some awesome pictures. Bottom line: Trip of lifetime and will join Jake again ASAP. The price is cheap in relation to the experience and expertise of this Charter and Captain. Tip the 1st mate heavily (at least 20% of the trip total). Bring drink/food. Be ready to have a great time. Awesome Awesome Awesome. Can't wait to try again. Our catch this day: 10x white marlin (we all received Virginia citations) 1x Mahi 1x Yellow Fin Tuna 1x Gray Tilefish Other wildlife seen: Giant sea turtles Flying Fish Hagfish (look as pretty as their name) Squid Black Bellied Rosefish Tinker Mackerel Beautiful sunrise, friendly 1st mate and captain. Boat is safe and sturdy, was under going some minor aesthetic rehab in cabin during our trip. Highly recommend.
  • Capt. Jake Hiles and crew were excellent. This was by far the best fishing experience we have ever had. Everything went very smooth and had a welcoming feel. Jake and crew were very knowledgeable and entertaining to speak to. I would recommend a trip with Matador charters to anyone looking to spend a day on the water fishing. Thank you Matador!
  • I have caught fish every time I have went fishing with my little cousin, from when we were little kids and on the bikes with our poles and tackle boxes to now out on the ocean. I have caught fish every single time I have ever been fishing with him. He's the greatest!(and a mighty handsome fella too might I add:)
  • Capt Jake took us out for a great day of fishing, Had fun reeling in some nice fish with some great people. We look forward to booking our next trip
