This was an awesome experience for me and my 13 year old son. The weather turned out perfect, but a little hot.  The boat, equipment, and personnel were top notch!  We caught a variety of fish and the keepers included red snapper and HUGE bull red!  You can’t beat the price!  We loved it and will definitely be a repeat customer.

This is one of the best trip we ever head. And it was amazed that caption Rodney arrange us in a deep sea tour for 4 hour trip which is never happens in my past fishing experience. My wife and I caught a variety of species and had a great time. The only downside is that the bull red doesn’t corporate. However it gives me another excuse to come back later this year^-^
