The Positives - very nice boat. Comfortable with plenty of protection from the sun and wind. Donnie and Matt were nice guys who seemed to know what they were doing. Other than a large Black Drum and a small catfish, we didn’t catch anything, but we tried several places and two different kinds of bait. That’s just the way it goes sometimes. We were pretty inexperienced so they taught us things and were pretty patient with us.

The Negatives - it was supposed to be a 6 hour trip, but we only did 5. We were told to meet at 1 (after original 12:30 booking) and didn’t leave until 1:30. To be fair, he did knock a little off the price and we didnt really want to stay the full 6 since the fish weren’t biting. The captain smokes and he cussed around my 8-year-old son, which I didn’t appreciate.
