Cpt Tyler is very professional and attentive, he is on top of every néed you will have while fishing. Bait your hook, make perfect skip casts under tight docks and quick to re-rig your line after a break off. The fishing wasn’t the best, Cpt Tyler’s day started by his boat being robbed of fuel and other things and a miscommunication and double booked the morning. He was professional and apologized and rescheduled the double booked client for 2nd part of the day. Then trolling motor didn’t work. Cpt Typer made the best of the situation. Although we did catch fish, they we on the smaller size and I don’t like to harvest minimum sized fish. The equipment used could have been better. Maybe his good rods were stolen the night before and he was making things work with what he had. Overall Cpt Tyler did a good job considering the circumstances, he rolled with punches and made it work. We caught fish. Mangrove snappers, a small dock grouper that pulled like hell a nice 20 inch plus trout and a juvenile snook. I even caught 3 pin fish in the mouth with a mirrodine mirror lure. Who can do that?! Lenny can!

I greatly apologize for the circumstances, of double booking, I never like doing that and sincerely apologize for having to conduct that business while full attention should be on current clients. As of the rods, you are correct that equipment was my back up from what was stolen the night priory. Trolling motor ended up being a loose wire on the female plug, but I also would like to apologize as to all systems should work properly. I hope to one day see you guys again. Had a wonderful time and Lenny, you are correct probably the only person I have seen catch a pinfish on a mirror lure!!
