We had a blast for a bachelor party trip fishing the Tampa flats. The captain was very knowledgeable and helpful and keep us all fighting fish while listening to great tunes and enjoying the local scenery. He recommended that we push back our trip a few hours so the tide would come in more and the water would warm up a bit, and boy did it make a difference! Would highly recommend and will be coming back for more
