Verified Review Fishing

George was great. Incredibly knowledgeable, charming, and patient. He was prepared to fish for all kinds of fish of different size and environs. We hooked a couple sharks, barracudas, yellowtail snappers, and a Goliath grouper. Great fun and we feel like we made a friend.

Response from George:

Thank you Carlos! It was a pleasure to fish you and you guys are always welcome to fish on my boat again.
