Even though the fish were not hitting hard due to hot weather. Captain Ted didn’t give up and kept trying to put us on fish well beyond the 4 hour booked time

Met Capt Ted at the dock and he was ready to go. We had some high winds but Capt Ted went out of his way to put us on some fish. We caught trout, redfish, catfish, and a lady fish. Capt Ted was likable and pleasant the entire trip. My wife caught a really nice 29” Redfish and Capt Ted made it a special memory I’m sure she’ll never forget. Lots of cool dolphin and ray sightings too.  If we book another trip, Capt Ted is our first choice hands down.
