It was mediocre, fishing was poor, only caught a few spotted bay bass, only 1 water left in bottom of empty cooler and couple small bags of chips. Not very fun and disappointing for money I spent.

It was a beautiful day on the bay and we enjoyed it a lot. Art worked very hard to find the fish, and even when we found them, they had lock jaw!!!!!! Ha!!! The score was Charlie 4, Ian 2 and Grandpa Wright 1. A great day and we would do it again!!!

The process of booking through FishingBooker was easy and helpful (I’m from out of town). Alan was responsive and punctual on the day of. Unfortunately, there was a small mechanical issue, and as we were heading into Mexican waters, he was uncomfortable making the trip.
We couldn’t come back at a later date, so he spent 40 minutes calling up other reputable fishing charters to find us a last-minute switch. He eventually secured us a spot on his friend’s boat, another well-reviewed captain from FishingBooker (I was very happy with the substitution).
The day was delayed by two hours overall, but considering the circumstances were beyond everyone’s control, it was a 12/10 solution. My client and I had a great day on the water, and Alan did the right thing quickly for us.
I would fully recommend Alan, as his boat was great, his professionalism was 10/10, and his solution to an unfortunate problem saved the day.
