Thanks to Captain Dan for a fun half day fishing.  Unfortunately, the fish weren’t biting, and ended up catching a few catfish.  Saw the Tarpon rolling, but they wouldn’t play ball.  Captain Dan tried his hardest.  We did catch the police who stopped us to check all OK, they are keen.  All in all a good morning out on the water.

I will tell that this Captain is very nice! We experienced bad ruff weather the day before. Phil called us the night before and recommended it was not good fishing! He refunded our deposit which was great! I have never had a captain do this! Phil I’m sorry we have not had a chance to meet, but I promise you in the future we will be using charter in the future!
