We out with a group of 4 and the boat was perfect size for all of us and could accommodate more. Captain Mike was very attentive and made sure we got to reel in some great snappers.

My company sent a crew of us down here for a major project. After a few weeks of working in the heat and cursing the sun, we needed a day on the water to enjoy the sun and fish. We had fun, caught lots of Red Snapper.

Captain Mike went above and beyond for our fishing trip. Even if I spent half of my trip ( 8 hr trip) inside cabin due to bad sea sickness, I still enjoyed the trip immensely. Captain Mike and deckhand Camden were patiently answering all my kids’ never-ending questions. Two thumbs up to Camden for jumped out of the boat to catch the snapper when the line snapped. Thank you for unforgettable experience; we will be sure to look for Captain Mike the next time we go fishing.

Capt Mike was right on time, after a brief safety talk we were under way. He is very knowledgable and took us out to the oil rigs, and several reef spots. We had a great off-shore boating experience, conversation, education, and of course LIMITING OUT!!! Best first trip I could’ve imagined, scheduling more in the future with Capt Mike.
