The deck mate was great and worked his tail off but the rest of the day was
WORST trip ever.  I’ve been on several charters and this one was by far the worst.  I took the family and my oldest son being a cancer survivor want to go offshore as one of his dream trips.  This dream was shattered.  It seemed as if the Captain was only worried about catching Barracuda for his friends or to sell once back at the dock.  I told the mate we didn’t want them and he took up the rigs we were trolling in the shallow waters to catch the CUDA’s with,  and the Capt. made him put them back out.  Once we landing a few yellow tail snapper the Capt. trolled the desert for over 2 hours and no strikes at all.  he would zig zag back and forth trying to make me think he was actually trying to locate structure when there wasn’t any for miles. I booked an 8 hour trip and by 5 hours It became a joke.  I told the captain to head for the dock I was done.  Once asked him to clean the fish he seemed irritated and it showed in his body language. I normally don’t say much but this was an expensive boat ride.
DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY WITH SITTING PRETTY Capt. John…
