Completed a four hour trip with captain Robert. Deep sea fishing with windy conditions and was comforted by captains expertise on the waters and with the fish. Caught a dozen trigger fish and seven mackerel tuna. Highly recommend

Was a great overall trip. The bite was kinda slow at first but quickly got good through out the trip. The captain definitely could put fish

Had great day fishing with Captain Robert and Brooke. Non-stop action and great time. Some of the best money I spent since I’ve been here and would definitely fish this boat again. Thanks again Captain Robert and Brooke.

The captain did a great job to make it a fun day. The weather didn’t help but he made it happened and caught some good fish. Trigger and two big unknown fish cut my line. Great job
