Caught 15 Mahi Mahi.  The crew worked hard to get the lines back out once the fish started hitting!  Great Day

Well, we knew we were fishing out of season so kept our expectations reasonable.

Crew constantly worked on bait and lines to make every chance possible.

We hooked two marlin but they not pulled off; we were able to reel in a sail and a mahi.

Boat is clean, well stocked and ready to go when you get there. Lunch was surprisingly good!  But it’s the crew that really make he trip suck a joy…view doesn’t hurt!
