When I booked I sent an email that I do want to fish for sailfish but the captain want it to stay close to the beach
I had to request from him over 3 times to go offshore
Waste 2 hrs
The funny thing is we coughs a 20 inch barracuda and he want me to take a picture with.
I think they don’t know the difference between fishing and having fun

I think you don’t understand fishing in this part of Mexico.  We fish half a mile to a mile from shore.  The water is very deep there because that is where the reef drops off.  Going further off shore actually reduced your chances and you could not bottom fish.

Half day is good amount of time. Would have been more pleasurable with air conditioning like website said the boat had! The main reason I picked the Obsession was for air conditioning because my son is type 1 diabetic and heat messes with his blood sugar level! That was very upsetting! All else was okay

I am sorry you did not have air conditioning and I do not know why the Fish Booker site said it did.  It is an open boat, so it wouldn’t have been possible.  They may now have corrected it because it no longer says that on their site.

Happy that everything else worked and the crew worked hard to get you fish.

Just checked the report of your fishing trip.  I see that you bottom fished and go several snappers, groupers and trigger fish.
