Background
I really enjoy watching families catching fish. Nothing like watching someone catch a huge fish and say that's the biggest fish I have ever caught. Priceless
Techniques
I like to catch big fish. With lite tackle nothing like bringing in a 20-30 pound Fish on 20 pound test line. Or big redfish on 12 PD test

Captain John was very patient with un experienced deep see fishermen. He helped us have a great experience

Fishing booker did not notify captain until 4:30am on date of trip. I made the reservation 2 weeks in advance. When we called the captain from the dock he said he had a full boat and could not take us. I will never use fishing booker again. Now we will see how long it will take to get my $90.00 back.

The Captain we booked handed us off to his brother. At booking I had confirmed that we would use live bait, but he only came with one pack of frozen bait. We trolled around many anchored boats that were landing fish constantly, but we only got 4 fish in 4 hours. I asked why we didn’t anchor, he said his anchor rope wasn’t long enough - we were in 35 feet of water! The trailing hook on my rig broke off, but he wouldn’t replace it. We only had 2 rods & reels on the boat, no spares. There was only a hole in the gunnel where my rod holder should have been, making it hard to remove the rod when a fish was on. The motor ran so rough it wouldn’t idle. He never changed his tactics when we weren’t getting hits until in the last 10 minutes we fished drifting and immediately caught 2 of the 4 fish. Then he called time and we had to leave. We even gave him a 15% tip and he acted pissed that was all we tipped.
