It was worth the trip from Desoto, TX to Freeport.  The fish were active, and the fight was a great
experience, even when the Red Snapper were under-sized.  I will book my trip earlier next year so that I can take a couple of outings.

We had a fantastic time out on the water!  Captain Rodney was great to fish with.  We were catching fish all morning long and he took care of everything.  We will definitely go with him again in the future.
