You are not going to be fishing with some hungover guy who was a waiter last week and will be renting out jetskis next week.  Our Captains are some of the best in the business and they were on the water yesterday so they know where the fish are.

Captain Damon found the fish, guided us on how to get them to the boat, and did  a fantastic job at cleaning them. Three beginner fisherman managed to land nearly 100 lbs of snapper and grouper, highly recommend.

We did a private offshore charter for five people with Captain Derek. He knew his fishing spots and taught us exactly how to get each type of fish. We ended up with at least a dozen legal fish including yellowtail snapper, three grouper and a barracuda. We threw back many more snapper as well as a couple sharks and those pesky blue runners.

Quite an experience! We loved it.
