Very fun trip fishing.  Capt. Bobby was knowledgeable, friendly and puts you on the fish.  They weren’t monsters but enough to eat. Highly recommend booking with Soggy Bottom II

Booked a half day trip at the end of March with my 19 and 7 yr old sons while on a family vacation nearby. Even though it was a slower time for fishing in general due to inadequately warm temperatures, it was still an enjoyable time. If the fish weren’t biting in one spot, off we went to the next as Capt Bobby was determined to send us away with fish. My 7 year old is still talking about the trip as he landed his first Redfish. These guys are very responsive and make you feel like you’ve been friends for years. They work hard so that you enjoy yourself and catch as much as possible. Looking forward to booking again in the summer with these guys. 100% satisfied and you will be too.
