We had a great time with Captain Sammy and crew. We left early in the morning and he put us right on the fish. We caught our limit of snapper in about 30 minutes. If we did t get immediate activity on the bite, he would say, “we’re moving.” After three spots we had a limit! My boys had a great time. Highly recommend Captain Sammy.

Had a great time on the Gulf with Captain Sammy put us right on the fish multiple times, we caught plenty of snapper and Spanish mackerel. Jackson the deckhand was super efficient and helped out greatly with the kids on board. The second hook in the water was a tiger shark!! Captain Sammy asked if we wanted to fight it and we did so he whipped out all the necessary gear for us to hold on to the the shark for almost 2 hours. Five grown men and 5 boys were smiling ear to ear the whole time. Moms aren’t happy with the lack of photos (perhaps they should tag along next time), but the kids have a story they can tell for a lifetime! Highly recommend Sammy and his crew! And as a bonus, he’s a pretty good DJ for the ride back in!
