Went fishing on Friday, February 24, 2017

We booked this boat and Bobby McGinnis purposely because we fished with Bobby before.  Our previous experiences were very good as Bobby is an excellent fisherman.  Very disappointed this time because Bobby did not show up to captain the trip.  He sent his boat and crew.  We caught two nice sail fish, however, on past trips we caught many more with Bobby as the the captain.  Very disappointed that he did not show up, and we did not get the trip we paid for.
