Captain Steve was a true professional. He led us through the steps and made the whole experience fantastic. We started off with catching our own bait fish which was awesome in itself. We then went trolling and fishing for king mackerel, followed by fishing for other species including amberjack and what turned out to be red snapper (red snapper was out of season so those went back in the gulf). Captain Steve is knowledgeable about fishing and the area. He is a great conversationalist and made the trip comfortable and enjoyable. Overall, Captain Steve ROCKS!!!!! And brings his A-Game every minute of the trip!!!!!!! Thanks Captain Steve.

Im so sorry you didnt have a good time. I do everything possible to ensure my clients have a wonderful time.
