Thank you Mr Daniel for your visit, see you next year

Went fishing on Thursday, June 22, 2017

Second trip out on Our Mary, sadly no fish on either occasion.
Good Captain, tried his best, had to return one member of the party back to port with severe sea-sickness (or was it the previous evenings alcohol).

Will book again for next year.

Boat, Capitan, and crew did a great job. We had rather ruff seas and were not able to bottom fish. Had the fishing been better would have been five stars overall. Lunch was great.
