Excellent morning out on the Gulf with Captain Lou. Caught a slew of Red Snapper and a multitude of other fish. Was able to have a nice fish fry! Would definitely go out with Captain Lou again

Our trip went just as I had hoped. Captain Lou was great to spend a day on the water with. Caught many fish and kept a few for dinner (delicious). I am planning a return trip to this area in a month and will book a trip with him again once I find out our return dates.
