Before we left, we had excellent communication with Captain Felix. He was VERY friendly and the communication was excellent! I was looking for a fishing trip that accommodated five people. Most did not…..this trip did. The other advantage was the Captain himself picked us up and dropped us off at the hotel! This was a VERY nice perk, too. The problem was the vehicle could not hold five people plus the driver so we had to “double up” in the vehicle. This was unsafe and uncomfortable. The other issue was due to the five people, there were only two casting poles and two trolling poles. I “assumed” everyone would fish for the four hours…...but this was not so. It would of been nice to know this up front and we would of chose two boats instead of one. Our group was VERY excited to catch fish but after four hours and five people trying, no fish were caught! Only one bite the entire four hours! I know it’s called fishing and not catching but we were disappointed to all be skunked!!
Felix himself was a GREAT guy and very friendly and tried hard to put us on the fish, just no luck! I guess the full moon four days earlier were still affecting the fish.
