    We traveled about fifty miles offshore. Randall and Jerry did a great job. They really put us on the fish. Caught over one hundred, kept about thirty, sent the rest back to grow up some more. My son, my nephew, their army buddy, and myself all different fishing levels, all had a great time. Will go back again next time I'm in Gulf Shores. Van Franklin

    Great trip- Right on time, easy to work with! Caught a handful of Spanish Mackerel on the way out, and while the fishing overall was a little slow, Steve got us on some fish and we had a blast- His deckhand was amazing and didn't stop working until he was done cleaning our fish back at the dock- Would definitely go again!~!!

    Capt Doug and Fishy were incredible. Best trip we have ever been on. Boat was great for the 8 of us and easily handled more. The boat is very well layed out plenty of room for everyone. Had some hip issues and was using a cane on the trip with no issues. Couldn't say the boat is completely handicap accessible for a wheelchair but would recommend to any one with a cane or walker. Capt and hand had no issue and even reviewed the different safeties I would need to follow in an EM. Will being booking next year's trip with Capt Doug
