We fished the mangroves and brought in some nice red fish. Ted treated my 7 and 9 year old with patience and respect. Made them feel like kings of the sea. Pointed out the dolphins and other sea life. We Caught red fish, jack, and some catfish on a day where other people were getting skunked. He knows where to look! Cleaned our fish and we took them to Crabby Bills! Fantastic lunch. It was a great time!
