Captain Rodney and Crew are very kindly and we enjoy Fishing Trip on 14-Oct.‘17 AM. Our Target Red Snapper is still small and all released. So that, we would like to try again in November. After Fishing point changed, many of Cat Fish and 2 Red Fish are catched. Many thanks to Captain Rodney and Crew, we had great experience at this day.

Captain Rodney and Ethan were a pleasure to fish with. The boat was comfortable and the fishing spot active. My husband was so excited to catch a shark. Lots were small but right at the end we caught a huge king fish. Thanks for a great experience. We highly recommend!
