The Tuna Bite crushed it this week! 2 days of fishing -  15+ sails, 1 big blue marlin, many mahi mahi and tuna.  Great captain and the crew are the best (Mike and Oscar).  You’ll catch fish and have a blast with these guys.

Captain Chris put us right on the fish and struck with them all day.  The crew never stopped and were friendly and professional.
