Hello, this is Captain Crowder, I have been fishing the Gulf Coast for over 35 years. I have caught just about every fish there is here in the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. I am a firefighter/EMT by trade, but am gonna retire in three years. My friends and family members cannot believe I haven't been a charter Captain yet. I've owned boats all my life and now have the Cadillac of boats. 33 tournament addition world cat. I want to show people what the gulf has to offer. Whether it be Snapper, Kingfish, to Tuna. Come and enjoy a fun filled day with me you will not be disappointed!

Met at expected time. Boat size was adequate . Target fish was Snapper and I did catch one snapper. Catch quite a bit of trigger fish, but per regulations had to release. We had to leave due to an unforeseen issue with one of our group members. So we did get to fish our time limit, but this was not the Captains fault. I have no doubt we would have caught several more. Overall would recommend highly!!
