Full Day Fishing

We had an awesome time deep sea fishing with Jim! We caught several wahoos and barracuda. Cap’t Jim was a great guide and cleaned the fish for us right there on the boat! He and his dad, Blake, made the day so much fun and were able to take our fish home with us to the States to eat!

Half Day Fishing

We had the most incredible charter with captain Jim! My wife and I are in Bermuda for our honeymoon and wanted to do some deep-sea fishing. Not only did Jim put us on fish right away he was professional the whole time. Always making sure we were ok and happy. Barracuda, wahoo, black fin tuna are just some of the fish we caught. Jim even let us help them catch the live bait! My wife has never been deep-sea fishing and she had an absolute blast!

We stayed at the Fairmont Southampton, which is on the southeast part of the island. Don’t let a 25-minute ride detour you from making the trip up to grotto bay (dock where we departed). So thank you again Jim the experience is something my wife and I will never forget.

Full Day Fishing

Jim and his crew, Malik, took us out today for the most exhilarating deep sea experience we've ever had! We caught fresh bait, and that got us big fish! 2 Barracudas and 2 Wahoos! He even filleted some for our dinner tonight! Such a great day!



Thanks guys!!

Evening Boat Cruise

We spent an unforgettable sunset cruise with Jim and Melanie of Early Bird Charters. Not only was their hospitality outstanding, but the cruise itself was so relaxing! And the sunset – oh, the sunset – was breathtaking! The entire process of booking, communicating about weather, and even where to meet was clear and so easy, which is what you want when you are on vacation. Reminiscing as a group, we unanimously agreed that the cruise was a highlight of our trip. We would HIGHLY recommend you book with Early Bird Charters; you will not be disappointed! Thank you, Jim & Melanie, for helping us collect beautiful memories and amazing photos of Bermuda. - The Folts Family, 4/3/18

Half-Day Fishing Charter

While I write this I’m sitting here on my balcony at The Fairmont Southampton enjoying the fresh Blackfin Tuna I caught today on the Troubadour. With Captain Blake and his son, Cap't Jim, I was lucky to have his team create the memory of a lifetime. I caught not only my 1st wahoo, but my 2nd, all in a matter of 30 min, along with the 2 nice sized dolphin! I couldn’t be happier with my trip for this time of year. They knew where to go and how to fish. Jim made me feel extremely comfortable and was constantly changing lures up to see what was going to work best. His wife, Melanie, was more than accommodating to my specific requests through the booking process. I would give them the highest recommendation, as they work hard to make your experience the best it can be. The boat was comfortable and sturdy. Would recommend them without regrets!

Full Day Fishing Charter

We very much enjoyed our fishing trip with Jim & Blake on 9/7/17.  The day truly exceeded our expectations!  We can't wait to come back with our sons to take them fishing with you again. In reviewing our pictures from our Bermuda honeymoon 25 years ago, we noticed that the boat that we took fishing then, looked exactly like Blake's! How funny is that!  I just have to say, Rich has gone on many fishing trips and his 2 favorite ones are on your boat! Thanks again for the wonderful experience!

We had the best time with Jim and his first mate, Melik, out on the ocean! We caught a few Wahoos, a Mahi Mahi, and a Barracuda. On the ride out, a pod of dolphins started to follow the boat - it was amazing!

Full Day Fishing Charter

Jim, his father, Blake, and their deckhand, Melike, took us out for a great day fishing!  My son caught 4 fish. The best was a 4-foot, 20lb Wahoo. The boat was very clean and well equipped and the crew was very experienced and helpful. It was great to be the only guests on the boat! Jim filleted the Wahoo for us to take a little bag home. This was a wonderful experience that my 19-year-old son and I will never forget! - Rufus & Samuel, 8/10/17

Full Day Fishing Charter

We had a perfect day with Jim, Blake and Malik. The sea was smooth the sunrise spectacular, the fish were biting and a rainbow to go with it.  It was one of those days that created a memory that we will cherish for years to come.  Jim and his mates worked tirelessly for our enjoyment, just awesome. Worth more than the price of admission. Thank you,  Bernie & Donna Christopher

Jim thanks for good and memorable fishing trip on troubadour with Blake!

Half Day Fishing Charter

We had such an awesome time fishing on Early Bird Charters!  A few of our friends from Canada came down to visit and we took them fishing with Jim and Melanie.  This was our first time out deep sea fishing and we caught a few tuna, wahoo, and were able to see a lot of marine life out on the water!  It was the experience of a lifetime! - Michi and Dan

Evening Boat Cruise

My family and I had an amazing time out on the water with Jim! We booked an Evening Cruise with Early Bird Charters and were able to see the island from a different point of view!  During the cruise we did a little inshore fishing too.  We would highly recommend booking with Early Bird; guaranteed to be a fun evening to remember! - Joan

Full Day Fishing Charter

I've been out a few times with Jim and Blake on Troubadour and every time it's an adventure!  This past trip, I booked a Full Day Charter and we started out with deep sea fishing for Wahoo and Tuna along the Edge of Bermuda! Afterwards, we came in shore to do a bit of reef fishing. Overall, it was a great day! I would highly recommend booking with these guys; they know the ocean waters like the back of their hands! - Joe
