We were a party of 3 and a first mate out for a half day.  We had a great time - and will book this charter when back in Venice. The boat was perfect for us, everybody had plenty of room.  We had one experienced fisherman and two novices - The first mate was patient, friendly, put us on fish and gave us tips for catching them; he never lost his patience when unraveling line or unsnagging hooks.

This trip was a blast.  Captain Bobby knew where to go to catch the fish that were biting.  We were on fish very quickly and brought home a ton of fish to eat.  Captain Bobby was incredibly knowledgeable and he worked great with my 12 and 14 year old boys.  We had a blast!
