We had an awesome trip!! Capt’n Rodney put us on fish as soon as we dropped anchor. No down time, got to bring home some nice bull reds, trout and snapper. We took my 3 year old boy, and he wore himself out. Even got to reel a couple in himself. Very accommodating, the 5 hrs flew by.

Thank you Tad for fishing with us. I had a great time with you all on the boat.  Your son will be one heck of a fisherman in a few years. He did a great job at only 3 years old.
