First off where I had to answer a yes or no answer to did we catch the species we wanted was a no BUT we caught a limit of Kings ( which were a BLAST )  and we had the privilege to not only to limit on Kings but were taken for bottom fish hunting a grouper. That didn’t work out but we did release some nice snapper that were out of season. EXCELLENT TRIP   Captain JC that took us out was the bomb super nice guy and very helpful with info to help us to get a fantastic trip. A note in closing is that we are experienced fisher people that fish from coast to coast year round. This was a top notch trip. Thanks to you Tim and of course to you Mr. JC.

Captain Steve was great to work with, and put us on sharks within 15 to 20 minutes of leaving the docks.  Being that my family is from Colorado I requested that we keep the ride as smooth as possible, as they are just getting their “sea legs” still, and the ride out and back in was no problem at all.  He also was very good with the kids and kept them entertained.  All in all we had a great time and we’d be happy to go again!  Thanks to all!

Thank you for the kind words and the nice photos. Glad to hear Capt JC was able to put you guys on some action quickly. Another trip or two and they’ll have those sea legs in great shape!  Tim
