Booked a 6 hour charter with Captain Scott Fisher. Overall experience was great. Started off slow but not for Scott’s lack of trying. This guy will find the fish! Hit many different spots and quite a few produced several fish. Being from the Midwest I have no experience saltwater fishing. I wanted to catch fish I had never seen before. We did just that. Some of the species we caught were snook, sheephead, red fish, and ocean trout. The captain was great. Very personable, polite, knowledgeable, and shares a love for the sport. Other charters I have been on lack in the above mentioned. As a fine example we were trying to find triple tail. We came across a rather large one and you could see the excitement come over him as well. Definitely adds to the thrill of the trip! He also kept us out longer than the expected 6 hours and got us on yet another spices of fish. Very enjoyable experience! I will be booking with Captain Scott Fisher again. And if by chance you read this Scott, thanks again!
