My husband, my 3 boys 15, 17 & 20 and myself booked a private 4 hour trolling tour. We got there at 6:30 a.m. and we left almost immediately. We were a little disappointed that we had to take time out to go pick up the bait. The captain had heard about a place where there was a lot Mahi Mahi fish so he suggested we go there. We were excited and ready to catch our dinner. Unfortunately they weren’t really biting but we did manage to catch 2 small ones. We troll fished for the remainder of the time. We only managed to catch six and a half fish and only the 2 small ones were edible. My youngest son caught the barracuda that ate my other son’s fish. We realize it’s an ocean and the captain and first mate have no control over what is biting so we didn’t blame them. Craig and Kyle were great to talk to and they tried really hard to give us a good fishing experience so I would highly recommend booking with them.
