“Catching” is right on Jeff’s boat...a 101-lb. yellow-fin tuna. Huge fight. Jeff knows what he’s doing. Great outing!!!

You don't have to read very many of my reviews to see that "coddling" is not my strong suit but catching fish sure is. On every trip while I'm getting the lines out I give a thorough explanation to everyone on the boat on how...More
