It was a great afternoon, the captain knew the exact spots where the fish were biting.

Good fun. Caught lots of throw back snapper. Safety a potential issue. Instructions need to be serious rather than jovial and I don’t think letting unsupervised passengers control the boat on the return home is best practice in open seas.
