Went fishing on March 23, 2015
My boyfriend and I charted a full day trip with Capt. Harrington in March, 2015. Capt. Harrington contacted us prior to our trip to confirm our reservation and ask what we were interested in catching. We requested to catch a variety of fish including something we could have for dinner, and that was exactly what we did. Capt. Harrington was very accommodating and picked us up at a local restaurant dock that was close to our hotel and that also ended up cooking up some of the sea trout we caught that day. He had all bait, tackle and rods ready for a full day of fishing. Our favorite catch of the day was a 31 inch redfish!! We also caught sand shark, sea trout and crevalle jack. We also enjoyed the view of 3 different groups of Dolphins playing around us and multiple stingrays. Not only did we catch fish but Capt. Harrington was very knowledgable about the surrounding areas and gave us lots of ideas for activities to do on the remainder of our trip. Ryan provided plenty of refreshments and kept us well hydrated for a full day on the water. We would definitely recommend a fishing trip with Capt. Harrington and should we have the chance again, we would book with Capt. Harrington. Enjoy your trip!
