Great experiance on a 5 hour trip with Captain Larry. The crew was excellent. We caught our fill of vermillion snapper and had an excellent fish fry with enough for 18 people.

5 hour trip with Capt. Larry and 1st mate Ron was excellent. They put us in the fish. Ron was very patient with five kids on board, helping them bait and catch the fist.Went fishing on July 25, 2018
What a great trip. The boat was big and comfortable. The fishing was good with the exception of the dolphins stealing our fish right off the hooks! LOL. If nothing else, the dolphin show was pretty cool. Capt. Larry moved quick and moved to stay ahead of the dolphins allowing us to catch a good mixed bag of snapper and mackerel.
