Our boat was switched at the last moment.  We were not aboard “My Obsession”.  No explanation was given for change.  Could not submit this without a yes or no to recommending or children.  Maybe it was the time of year but no fish.

Although the fishing equipment was somewhat beat up, the captain was persistent in continuing to move to different locations until fish were found.  He also switched from bottom fishing to trolling as conditions changed.  Both methods were productive.

Glad to hear the crew worked hard for you and you got fish both trolling and bottom fishing.
Nice Picture

Boat could use A/C in the cabin. Crew was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Quality and quantity of fish was below hope (3 Barracudas, 1 Spanish Mackerel and 1 very small Tuna) but not the boat or crews fault as they tried their best to put us on fish.

Thank you for acknowledging how hard the crew worked.  Hopefully next time the fish will be more co-operative.
