This was second time to charter this boat for us. The captain and the crew are very friendly, knowledgeable and hospitable. We were 6 people party. Three of us were beginners. But we all were able to catch fishes and had fun!!!
I will choose this boat again!!

Just wanted to say thank you again to Captain Craig and Kyle for the MOST EXCELLENT fishing trip! All of us enjoyed ourselves immensely, both the boat ride (beautiful boat!) and the fishing, and caught loads of fish. The majority of us have never experienced ocean (gulf) fishing before, so we were all happy with the action (let’s just say there were some sore arms and shoulders for a few days after).  We were provided with fishing tips and encouragement throughout, and we were never want for bait—always quick to load us back up. We also took the local advice and had a fish fry the following day (so awesome!), with plans for a few more here at home during the snow season. And I can’t wait to see how the stories get embellished this summer as we sit around the campfire at our cabin :), as well as watch the video once it’s edited. Good times! All I have to say, next year, we OWN the Thanksgiving grouper! HA HA HA! Thanks again for the great memories! Beth, Don, Roger, Tom and Kenny
