Due to bad weather “cold front” we had to take inshore trip. Cap said water temp had dropped 10 degrees. Captain tried his best to find fish that would bite, just wasn’t gonna happen. Captain Robert was good with my teenage sons. Even stayed out a little longer.

I wasn’t expecting the captain to be a 23yrold and he didn’t have a mate to help him. The lines kept getting crossed and we spent more time riding than fishing. I Don’t want to bash him too bad cause for his age he did good but for that kind of money it wasn’t worth it. It was $645 And cleaning the fish wasn’t included in the price.

Five of my friends and I went out with Captain Robert on Saturday and were blown away with an awesome experience.  Captain is professional, exceptionally knowledgeable and fun to fish with.  We are excited to come back!
