Had a blast first time saltwater fishing with my son and nephew. Captain Chad was unbelievably terrific, very patient and personable, professional, full of local knowledge. We fished a bit past our 7 hr trip.  Boat was comfortable with 3 anglers.  Couldn’t be happier with everything.  Thanks, Capt Chad, see you in May or June for tarpon!
