We started our day by getting picked up at our resort. It’s the last resort on the strip. We were picked up by the 1st mate Vladimir. He was on time actually arrived early and was waiting there before we even got to the lobby. He was very polite punctual and accommodating. We felt very comfortable with Vladamir on the ride to the marina. When we arrived, we walked down to the beach and took a short skiff ride to where the boat was moored. The boat was a little older but well maintained and it was very comfortable. Captain Richard and Vlad made us feel right at home. We headed out to the fishing grounds (it was about an hour trip). Vlad had informed us that we would be fishing 15 to 20 miles out in about a 100-150’ of water. On the way we hooked into 3 fish. We got one to the boat and it ended up being a mahi mahi. The fishing slowed for about an hour to an hour and a 1/2. On our way back we hooked into a large mahi on the Captain’s pole he passed it down and unfortunately it was my wife’s turn in the seat. She got settled into the chair to fight the fish and the next thing you know we had a double on. After about 45 min to an hour we had a dozen fish in the boat. The captain and the 1st mate were very knowledgeable and able to stay focused and find the fish. The 1st mate Vlad recommended that we have a fish prepared for us at one of the local restaurants on the beach. I have to tell you that this is one of the best decisions that we made. We were asked how we wanted the fish prepared (whether we want it fried or grilled) we decided to have it done both ways. The fried fish was very good but the grilled fish was fantastic. This was the best food that we had on our vacation. I recommend this crew very much, they’re very knowledgeable and know what they’re doing. I was very happy and will remember this trip forever as will my wife. Thank you very much Vlad and Richard for a fantastic day.
