Captain Johnny and his First Mate were truly great. We limited out on Yellowtail (10 per guest) and picked up some great grouper. One grouper we caught while TROLLING. Something I’ve never seen. Be sure and check out the Captains rating on seasickness. Points are awarded. Truly a great trip will definitely book again. I highly recommend this charter.

Had a great time. Seas were a little rough but Capt. put us on and kept us on fish.Crew was helpful in the techniques to catch and land the fish.Caught a limit of snapper and had fresh fish for dinner. It was great. We wanted to catch a big shark and the Capt. worked until we found and landed a big Bull.Spotted a huge Hammerhead swimming off the stern of the boat. Had to throw back the grouper (out of season).
I would recommend Capt. Johnny to any of my friends.

Keith, Ray and his wife were good sports and hung in there with the 3-5 ft seas. After they got the touch of the bite game on Yellowtail snapper.  Big guy Ray wanted a Shark so I got him a 300lb Bull. Oh yeah!
