We booked all day so we could go out and come in when we wanted , Capt said he would pick up live Bait and we could reimburse him, He said he couldn’t get any when we arrived.
Stereo did not work on Boat, Fishfinder and depth sensor did not work on Boat. Stayed out from 10:00 AM till 2:00, not a single Bite.

I am very sorry that you were disappointed with the day. Per our conversation the day before we discussed that the fish were eating early in the morning or later in the afternoon at which time you informed me that you wanted to fish from 10 to 2. I was very upfront about everything and we discussed that the fishing would be tough during those times. My depth finder and radio worked. I was never asked to play music. I will accept the responsibility for not having live bait however I did provide a more that adequate substitute. I wish you would have said something to me at the dock before you left about being unhappy because my customers satisfaction comes first at the end every fishing day.
