To say I had a great time is an understatement! Captain Frank was awesome, he found the bait and shortly after it was fish on. Boat and equipment were very nice, I would definitely recommend fishing with Captain Frank.

Great time fishing, plenty of bait and plenty of big sharks. Had several triple hook ups. The boat was in exceptional shape and easily to maneuver around.
