OVERALL WE HAD A GOOD TIME, FISHING WAS A LITTLE SLOW, SEEMED TO TAKE QUITE A WHILE TO GET TO THE FISHING GROUNDS, BUT WE REALLY DID NOT KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT. THERE WERE FOUR OF US, WE CAUGHT 5 YELLOW TAIL, 2 BASS AND 1 BONITA.
WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND A 7 HOUR OR LONGER TRIP.
THE CAPTAIN AND FIRST MATE WERE GREAT GUYS AND VERY HELPFUL.
BREAKFAST AND LUNCH WERE INCLUDED AND DID NOT DISAPPOINT.
