I grew up in Biloxi, MS and have been fishing since I was in diapers. I started with bream fishing with a cane pole and graduated to deep sea fishing. After catching my first Gulf fish I was hooked. I just can't go back to fishing for smaller fish. My bait is bigger than a bream. LOL

Hope to see you both again.

This was our first time aboard the Ruthless but by no means first time on the water. We booked our annual guys trip with Capt Elaine. She and First Mate Mark kept the hooks baited and put us on the fish. (Their lively banter kept us entertained between spots!) We caught white and mingo snapper, a scamp, and triggerfish. Had to let the triggers go as they were out of season. But the catch of the day was an 8.5 lbs red snapper! Great trip! Highly recommend them!

I am so glad you guys had a good time!  The weather cooperated and was cool and the seas were almost flat….a great day!  That pink pole is a killer when it comes to the “bite”.  You happened to be the lucky user who caught the first and the biggest fish of the day!  My deckhand Mark is always a joy to have on board.  Wish he could be with me all season….then I wouldn’t get small gifts in the mail from him…LOL.  Hope you guys come back and visit again.  Take care and let me know if you win an Emmy from your filming.

Thank you so much for the review.  Glad you all had a nice time and caught some fish.  Hope to see you again next time around.  Maybe the Federal Government will lighten up on the regulations and let us catch more fish!!
