Went fishing on Monday, October 6, 2014

The boat and equipment are top notch! Great, in perfect shape and very well maintained.
Captain is very experienced and the crew also. Unfortunately fishing that day was a bit slower than I expected, but still we caught few Mahi, but smaller once.

That’s why it’s called fishing, not catching. I will definitely book again “uShaka” and go with Captain Francis offshore. Maybe next time will be more than one day.

Went fishing on Tuesday, October 14, 2014

We went out for a full day trip, chartering “uShaka” and Capt. Francis with his crew.

From the start, till the end we had oustanding time on “uShaka”. Captain really knows these waters, just like his crew. They are experienced crew, knowledgeable. They put us on fish and gave us an perfect, memorable fishing trip! So far, this is my best fishing trip EVER!

We caught few Mahi-Mahi (one was huuuge) and realeased a Marlin.

Definitely would highly recommend Capt. Francis and “uShaka”!
