Great weather day out of Cozumel, Captain and crew were on time and the vessel was clean and neat.

With it being the very start of game fish season, we knew the risks of targeting billfish etc. Unfortunately the ocean did not provide today, but the crew worked hard to allow us every opportunity nonetheless.

Food and drinks were great, and although the fishing was slow, the experience was great and I would certainly look up Victor and his crew again should I come back to Cozumel.

We had a blast fishing today with Victor and Crew. We knew it isn’t prime fishing season but wanted to go anyway. We fished for quite awhile before catching anything and then bam…4 barracuda and a beauty of a snapper. We will for sure hire Grand Slam on our next trip to Cozumel!
