Family and I had an excellent time. Weather wasn’t ideal for the bite, but Captain Mack found the schools and help us land some awesome dinner. Mack and Danny were top notch professionals and a blast to hang out with. Teenage boys felt the same if that tells you anything. Highly recommended.

We never made it fishing. The boat broke down before we ever stepped foot on it. It’s completely understandable that things happen, but the lack of communication was very disappointing. I never heard from the captain untill the morning we were waiting to meet him, and I had to call him. Seemed quite unprofessional.

Misunderstood that boat had no toilet, which disappointed ladies. Slow fishing day but pleasant trip.. boat is steering issue but overall ok. Not a cushioned filled cushy boat by good for fishing.
