Our family of 6 had an awesome time on the water with Captain Chad.  Everything about our 4 hour trip was great.  Captain Chad did a phenomenal job finding a great spot to fish and kept us catching fish the entire time.  We have enough yellowtail to eat for the rest of our trip!!!  The kids had a blast as did my wife and I.  Back at the marina Chad and Brandon filleted all our 32 fish to perfection.  We’ll be back next year!  Thanks guys!

Everything was ok it was a very nice trip.
Only comment is that it turned out it was not tarpon season, so advertizing a tarpon and shark trip at that time is of course debatable.
We had a nice day and ate the fish caught in a restaurant.
Boat and Captain was very good.
