we had a wonderful experience with TruBlue charters.  Bruce was excellent and very knowledgeable about the fishing in the area.  As he was born and raised in Key Largo, he know where the fish are and how to get them.  We caught our limit for both snapper and sea trout.  He was very attentive and extremely helpful.  He really made our charter a fun and successful experience.  Bruce even filleted the fish for us!  The next time we are in the Keys, we will be sure to book another charter with Bruce.  He know his stuff.and runs a great trip.  I highly recommend him.
