Went fishing on Saturday, December 3, 2016

Picture of red boat in add much nicer than white boat we took. Boat mechanically beautful with great instruments. The head was dirty and smelly caught 36 fish we could keep which when cleaned made maybe 2 pounds of fish.But i knew it wasn’t a meat run. It was fun ,expensive but fun. Crew did a fine job.

Went fishing on Sunday, June 26, 2016

Well the day started out ok. Just had bad luck with our bait due to circumstances that was out of our hands. The day was good we cauget fish. Not a lot of fish but it was OK. The crew was great. Boat was very sturdy. I spoke to Capt Erich the next day about our trip. He offered to take us out again at his cost to make up for the lack of keeper fish that was brought home. Which we will take him up on his generous offer. And will set a make up date.

Not too many Capt’s will offer what Capt Erich will do for our next trip. His slogan on his site he stands by no fish no pay.

Can’t wait to book my trip again.

This was a great experience! We had 3 guys and 3 girls and we all went fishing. We caught about 60 or so fish. DJ literally put us right over the reef and we were catching fish like crazy. We definitely appreciate how much DJ and his first mate taught us that day and their expertise not only on fishing but getting us out there around the stormy weather. We’d recommend!
