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

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
