What an amazing trip! I booked this for my husbands 50th birthday. Captain Taylor promised us he would put us on the fish and he certainly did that! We out fished all the other nearby boats and were constantly busy reeling them in. I even caught two bonnet sharks and a 33 inch snook. My husband also caught around 18 good size snooks. We will certainly be booking with Captain Taylor again. A fantastic morning.

My colleague and I had a fantastic sunny day with Christopher. He was on time and ver professional. He even jumped in the water to untangle the line to allow the catch in picture to be brought on board! I would highly recommend !
