From the very start everything was perfect Good directions easy to find and a beautiful boat. After loading our gear we were off and fishing within 10 minutes of leaving the dock. John and his first mate were terrific. Obviously very knowledgeable about the fisheries and worked hard to get us on fish. The weather was perfect and 2 hours in we had a beautiful 40 Lb shortbill spearfish in the boat. When back at the dock Steve filleted the fish and we had some nice tablefair for dinner. It was delicious. I would recommend Silky Sportfishing to anyone looking for a 1st class trip with true professionals Thanks again and we’ll definitely be back
