Had a great day with Capt. J.J. On The Soggy Bottom. The weather was working against us in the beginning…trips being rescheduled. But, Capt. J.J. fit us in before our vacation was over. We hit our first spot and immediately started catching fish. Had one on before the second pole even got in the water. There we caught several kingfish. From then on it was steady catching. Our trip was a short four hours, but packed with action. We boated bonita, grouper, kings and snapper consistently. That just goes to show you that you don’t need to charter a big boat to catch fish and have a good time. Capt. J.J. knows his business and is very good at what he does. I will charter The Soggy Bottom every time I’m in Destin.
Lots of fun! Thanks again J.J.
