Went fishing on Tuesday, March 14, 2017

Meanor is an amazing captain.  Deck hands David & Mark did an excellent job making sure everything was ready to go, and went above & beyond to make sure when we did have one hit, it was going to make it to the boat.  Great food, great boat, caught 1 sailfish & 1 amber jack.  Fishing was definitely off that day, but captain tried several things to try to improve the #‘s, it was just a bad day to fish.  Wonderful experience, wonderful crew, and a great boat owner to boot.  We will definitely be return customer!
