Great day overall. Did not limit, but caught some nice specs and two oversize reds. James worked very hard to make sure everyone was taken care of and had the opportunity to pull in fish.  We will do this again.

Fishing was fun but we didn’t catch a whole lot. Capt. Sabo was very realistic and worked hard for our success.

Captain James did a great job. He worked extremely hard to make sure we had a great time.  We limited out on speckled trout and the we came very close to limiting out on the Reds. It was an incredible trip.

My brother in law and I called James for a spur of the moment mid-week trip. He had an opening, and was super efficient at getting us booked. James let us know up front what we would could expect to catch.  We met James the next morning and he was waiting and ready to go. After a short ride James had us set up, and it wasn’t long before the reels were reeling off line.  We caught some 40 to 50 lb black drum. We got a great work out.
This being one of my first guided trips I wasn’t used to having someone do almost everything. We just set the hook and reeled in the beast.  James was a pleasure to fish with. My brother in law has booked James for there yearly family trip to Port A. So needless to say we definitely will use “Tails up guide service” again.
