Caught 16 red snapper with 4 people kept the biggest 8. Captain Art put us on fish. Would have liked to have caught some other fish but only caught red snapper. Also didn't get any really big snapper. But overall a very good fishing trip.More

5 of 5! Capt art knows his boat and knows his fishing. Went in 4s-5s and never felt uncomfortable. Great capt and great experience for all skill levels.
