"Half day with Captain Frank "

Jerry Garcia fished with Samara Local Fishing on August 7, 2018

Definitely best fishing experience I’ve ever had. Tuna, Marlin and Sailfish couldn’t have asked for a more perfect fishing trip.

"Full day offshore - 3/6 Blue Marlin, 1/2 Sailfish and a slew of Mahi"

Michael Procopio fished with Captain Tom’s Big Game Sportfishing on July 19, 2018

Amazing day on the water w/ Capt Tom, Jerry & Geo! 3 Blue Marlin, 1 Sailfish and a bunch of Dorado for dinner - hard to beat days on the water like that!
