Had a great trip. Nice day out in the gulf. Captain Blake knows where the fish are and will do everything possible to keep you on fish. He even worked with a non fisherman to keep him catching. Three of us went out and have no idea how many we caught. I know my arm was tired after all I caught. I didn’t expect such a trip but was so surprised at the whole trip, we talked about the next time.
