Went on a half day trip on 4th of July and it was a good one. Definitely will book again and will recommend. Everyone, the captain and mates, were down to earth! Pleasure meeting them and having them on board with us. Caught some pretty good mackerels & a shark! Can’t wait to catch some more good stuff again.
