Went fishing on Sunday, April 1, 2018

Couldn’t fault captain Mikes service, he was very good company, friendly and knowledgeable. The boat was ready and waiting at the pickup time and we set off onto the flats to start fishing. The only downside being, as Mike explained, was that there had been a recent cold spell which had dropped the water temperature and had affected the bite. He did everything he could to find us fish, and we did catch, but not good as expected. This was out of his control and he even gave us an extra hour and a half on the water trying many different spots . All in all would thoroughly recommend this captain for a trip.

All in all a good day given the water temperature dropping in the week prior to your arrival to below 68. It definaltely had the fish confused. I hope you all make it back and come out again, I had a great day despite the slower than expected bite. At least you guys took home some fish….BTW it only took about 4 days of warm weather and the water was back up to 74 degrees and a week later, we had the snook you were looking for….Now you gotta come back!!!! Cheers!!!
