We chatter trips regularly when we come to Florida. Nice guy overall. 45 min late to start off. Went two 2 spots 100 yards from the boat ramp. No fish were biting so took it upon himself to dump the bait and call it a day. I paid for 6hours and maybe fishes 4. Knocked off a little to comp for unused time but not the correct amount. NOT IMPRESSED!!!!!!

Hi Billy,
If I remember correctly we fished for 4 hours and I charged you $275, nobody will argue with any success, that you overpaid. In fact you paid a little more than half of what most charge in this area for 4 hours. A military discount, that you asked for was applied as well. Also, if I remember correctly, the wind was cooking out of the east, giving me limited options concerning places to fish. Hence, the shortened trip. Bad weather, limited options of areas to fish lead to a shortened trip and you were discounted for that. Not sure what else I am supposed to do. First bad review ive ever had in 8 years in the biz.
Thank you for booking with me sorry I couldn’t supply what you were looking for. Thank you also for your service!

Have a great day,

Capt. Todd Brackin
