Fishing was good.  We caught a variety of species, some small grouper, lost some big ones.  Captain Tyler was nice and knowledgeable but didn’t seem like he wanted to be there.  Didn’t have bait when he picked us up so we spent first 20/30 mins of our time buying bait when we could have been fishing.
