Trip was alright.  Four hours and only two fish.  Boat was older and showed the signs of it’s age.  Capt. and his son we’re pleasant.  Expected more for the money though.

Captain Keith and Austin created the fishing trip we dreamed of and then some. It was a great celebration for my daughters 20th birthday. Everyone caught great fish even though most of us were “first time offshore anglers”. We will request them again!
