My son and I had very good experience in our fishing trip. The boat was well equipped with fishing gear and live bait. We discussed our fishing plans with captain Taylor and he did stick with his/our plan. Captain Taylor was very friendly, worked well with us and gave us a few very good fishing hints. Inshore we caught a few snooks, trouts, blues, jacks. Captain Taylor also took us offshore for Goliath grouper. We hooked a few, but unfortunately did not manage to pull it up. One time it broke 400 pounds line and second it broke the hook. Having said that we had some fun fighting this fish.
The only confusing part about this trip was pickup options. We thought pickup was included and/or location will be close to our hotel based on fishingbooker web site, but in fact we had to drive to pickup point about 30 minutes.
Otherwise we really enjoyed our trip and I would recommend Captain Taylor.

Mr.kantor,
- To start I am glad that you had fun on the trip, caught fish and took a lot of meat home. That being said #1 in none of our conversations did you say that you were on the water and wanted pickup.When sending the address no where did you say anything about it being an issue and I did give you multiple ramp locations to choose from.  The description states free pickup to clients on the water with dock access. Also if I recall you guys were staying in a hotel; most hotels do not allow this due to insurance purposes. Mainly that is for people staying in houses with docks. I give all my clients more then one address to pick from. I simply give my professional opinion on the closest ramp to our fishing locations as I try to maximize your fishing time Instead of having an hour boat ride; the ramp we launched from we started fishing within 5 minutes of where we launched and started catching snook. Hope this clears up your confusion and prevents confusion for further clients! Hope you enjoyed the fresh fish dinner.
