About the Captain
Member since August 2016
Went fishing on July 22, 2017
Great day of weather and fishing. Captain was on task all day. We started catching fish before 9 am. Positives - Captain never sat too long if fish were off. We continued fishing different spots all day. We caught fish and captain was friendly. Negatives - just a few. We would not take this boat if full sun day as there was no bimini top for shade and it would have been too much sun for full day without shade. There was no need for cover on day we went as clouds were plentiful. We felt like we travelled too far out for our liking with 1.5 hr boat trip to get to fishing and worked way back. Would think fish were closer in but we saw whales and turtles where we fished and we did catch fish so made the ride worth it. Would have enjoyed hot beverages in early morning—would recommend bringing coffee flask. Plenty of good food for day was supplied. We would go again for sure—great trip and caught a lot of fish. Tackle was great but we would have liked fishing some with live bait. All rods were well kept and Captain was quick to fix any bait issues and caught a lot of fish to give us to reel as well. Very pleased, just a few improvements but we got what we paid for - a fun great day of fishing.
