Went fishing on April 4, 2018
Morning flew by but was very productive. captain Macfarlane focused on getting us to spots on Gulf were we caught primarily Snapper, but also grouper and sea bass. Highlight of morning was catching king mackerel which provided the experience and challenge of bringing in a real fighter for everyone on trip.

Went fishing on April 3, 2018
We went out on 3 April 2018. Capt Greg and First Mate Brian were OUTSTANDING!! The trip could not have been better! Capt Greg put us on the fish, First Mate Bryan was there to take the fish and put new bait on the hook. Charter was ready to depart before time - 7AM, caught our first King fish shortly thereafter. We caught our limit before 1PM and returned to King fishing to bag our second one. Recommend this charter to all! Better yet, Im looking to book again!
