We had a great time with Captain Tony and first mate Teddy. Beautiful day, beautiful boat, beautiful experience. We wanted to catch some fish but our main focus was bearing ashes of loved ones and see which we did.

Was disappointed that we only caught 1 fish(Dolphin ).  Since fish weren’t biting Captain gave us option to cut day to half which was fine.  Weather was beautiful so day was not wasted.

We had a great trip with the Wet-N-Wild crew. The owner, Tony, was great in giving us all the details before the trip, Capt. James took us out along with mates Marshall and Chris adn they really made out trip! We took one of the “Other Side” trips to an area called “The Corner”. Basically, out of Stuart, go 90 to 100 miles offshore to the corner of the Bahamas. The boat was so sturdy that even a member of our group that always gets sea sick felt nothing!

We were targeting tuna and Captain James put us on them. A full day out produced a 65 lb Yellowfin, 3 blackfin tuna, a skipjack tuna, and 5 very nice Mahi Mahi including one 35 lb Bull Mahi.

The gear is well serviced and in good conditions, the boat is well furnished. The mates and the captains worked really hard and we had an excellent day out! Well be back soon!
