Booked a trip and although captain was a nice guy, only planned on fishing for one kind of fish. Caught one fish all day for $1000. I know fish are no guarantee, but would have expected to try different areas.More

Three couples were treated to a fantastic Sunday afternoon of fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. We caught lots of sea bass, grouper, and snapper. Captain James is knowledgeable and helpful. Captain Lance cleaned 5 pounds for hook and cook. Highly recommended fishing experience.
