We booked a 1/2 day charter with Capt. Frank 3/27/18. This is still the windy season so we had only expectations of a good day on the water. Capt. Frank did not disappoint us and hooked us up quickly on some bate fish which we trolled in sloppy seas. We received reports of smoother water and some possibilities of tuna so we picked up and ran 30 minutes south. We came upon a large pod of Spinner dauphin but no luck with tuna. Captain continued to work hard for a hook up but we were denied.
I highly recommend and I will welcome the opportunity to fish with Capt Frank in the future. Frank has a great personality, fun sense of humor, and he speaks excellent english (mush better than my Spanish). Thank you!

Frank said he would be my Captain for 2 days he always pawned me off. I did catch fish though. Did not appreciate the lies.

Steve
Sorry that it didn’t go the way we planed
When I spoke to you on the phone I told you that I was going to go on the fishing trip
But it was my mistake to offer myself to go which I don’t run that boat
Like I said to you sorry but the most import thing that you got a couple of sailfish and that was your goal and you got 4 good size dorados too
so don’t say that the boat was not good or the crew because it is not true
