We had a great morning with captain Jesse. He had us on the fish fast and kept us busy reeling them in. There was a storm that rolled through and he kept us out of it so the water was calm and we barely got wet.

Kevin, Thank you so much! My self and Cory had a great time with you and your family on the water.  We got on the fish fast and the action did not stop until that storm started to roll in. Safety of my passengers and crew is the most important thing to me while water. Once I saw the storm on my boats weather radar screen I put my storm plan in place.
We have to do it again soon!! 32 Spanish Mackerel was very good morning.
