We fished four locations overall, three with good fishing, one we left quickly due to lack of action. Total we caught four keepers, all trout and all very tasty.
The truth is we caught fish all day long, many jacks and snook, with the assorted grouper and pufferfish thrown in. Capt. Fox worked to keep our lines in the water as close to 100% of the time he could. We enjoyed our time out, had a great time and would do this again.

The trip was excellent. Captain Fox took the time to give us pointers on casting and we tried different types of fishing set-ups. I had 2 11 year olds with me and he was patient and helped them if needed. We got to the meeting place about 15 minutes early and he was there and ready to go.
I would recommend this charter for both experienced and novice anglers.
