We had an awesome experience on the Carolina Girl. Probably the best fishing we’ve ever had. The captain got us to the fish and kept us there all day. We never expected to come back with 3 citation Big Eye tuna. We will be definitely booking another Big game trip with Captain Troy.

Went out for a full day fishing with a group of 4. Captain Troy and mate Josh did a great job and did everything they could to find and get the group a few fish. Slow day for all boats but once the water settled down we had a great time. Looking to come back to get a crack at some of the elusive tuna we tried all day to get but the dolphin and wahoo were a lot of fun to catch too. Great job Troy and Josh look forward to coming back next time. Thanks again. Rick
