Captain very knowledgeable, curtious and helpful throughout the trip. Relocated the boat several times to insure we were ” on the fish”.

We were 2 experienced fishing guys and we feel like we got treated like the family just wanting the kids to see a fish. You can’t control nature but for the captain to believe that we’d be happy catching 6” fish means he wasn’t listening when he asked us what we wanted to do. It means he met the requirement, we caught fish. At 1 point he put the big rod out and had 2 big hits on live grunts, CLEARLY it excited us, instead of working that harder he put it away. He also seemed pretty cheap with the bait and chum.

We are sorry for not meeting your expectations, however the bigger boats are the ones that has more opportunities for people that are truly experienced in fishing. This is because the smaller boat targets smaller fish with lighter tackle. Thank you for your review.
