I fished when still in school, and after finishing college I received training from two of the best captains in St.Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands: "Red" Bailey and "Spike" Herbert. My first boat was the "Obsession". I got it in 1991 and in 2010 I added "Double Header". I have fished in the USA, Bahamas, Australia, Costa Rica and most of the Caribbean islands.

The bite was fast and furious after six hours of nothing.  Captain worked hard to put us on the fish.  Not recommended for people unaccustomed to deep sea fishing conditions.  (my wife had a hard time)
