Great time.  Didn’t catch much but not for lack of trying. Captain and Brenda were a blast.  Would definitely go with them again.

Only caught Spanish Mackerel and Bonitos, but we heard from the guy on the dock who filleted the fish, that we had the best catch of the boats out there that morning! Moby Dick is safe for another day!! A fun time.

Thank you for fishing with us. We really enjoyed having you. As far as only catching Spanish mackerel and Bonita,  you had booked a half day inshore trip with us, and on that trip, that is the type of fish that are caught. We would love to have you guys come back next year and book an all day offshore and catch some yellow fin tuna and dolphin

First, I never saw a way to sign up for just one person and ended up booking the entire boat!!  So saying that I now had the entire boat - I only caught ONE tuna - and fishing for hours!!  Then, to add insult to injury, when arriving at the dock - the boat that had just come in had twelve tunas!!  My one tuna was very expensive (and if there had been more of us on the boat, many would have been VERY disappointed)!!
