Went fishing on Saturday, July 22, 2017

Really a nice trip for a four hour fishing trip.  Captain Lane is a very knowledgeable fisherman that knows the waters off Anna Maria island. We caught alot of fish to call this a successful trip.  Three species of Snapper,  a Mackerel, two Bonito’s and plenty of Grouper. Unfortunately, the Grouper was just under the legal size.  Good time had by all.

The day was quite windy and we were unable to get out to where the big fish were supposed to be so we stayed in shore and fished the more popular areas.  Yes, we caught fish but only caught several grunt and one little snapper.  We did a little trolling and did manage to hook up with an undersized Coby.  This could have made the trip, unfortunately it went through and undersized, rotten dip net and got away.

The captain was a nice guy and shared a lot of information.  I believe the weather was the biggest negative factor.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Wish the weather was better than forcasted. I don’t hang my hat on those kind of days. Next time…

Had a great morning out with Cap’n Layne, came back with a nice box of mangrove snapper and a gag grouper. We had several break offs, Layne was able to keep then coming until the weather started to turn. Highly recommend this charter, super time on the water!

Four of us spent half a day fishing with Captain Layne and it was a wonderful trip.  We caught plenty of fish - including a nice sized cobia.  I would highly recommend the Snapper Addict experience.  Captain Layne knows his fish and was patient with those of us who were not experienced in fishing.
