    We went out on Tuesday which was originally scheduled for Monday but the weather didn’t cooperate and we were thankful that captain Seth suggested going out the next day. The weather was perfect and he put us on the snapper. We had a big group of people with a couple of first timers and everyone caught their limit and and had a great time. I would highly recommend this charter to anyone wanting to have a great time and load up on fish.
