    Had a most excellent time. We were scheduled for an offshore trip but wind and waves caused us to cancel this trip. However, we rescheduled for later in the day for a tarpon fishing excursion. This was a blast ! We saw sharks up close and landed several yellow jacks which gave us a good fight before being returned to the water. After trying and trying (never give up) we snagged a good sized tarpon. After a good fight which included multiple boat maneuvers it was brought to the side of the boat before being cut loose to fight another day. We thoroughly enjoyed the time spent with the captain and first mate. Both were very attentive to us, making sure that our hooks were still baited and that we had all the help required for landing and documenting our catches before returning them to the water. A great time was had by all! The boat was immaculate and we had no issues if any sort.

    We had a great day fishing with Capt. Pete and Christy! Our teenager got his first deep sea fishing experience and reeled in a couple huge tilefish, which made for a great dinner that evening and we had plenty more to take home. We would definitely take another trip with Capt. Pete and Christy on our next trip to the area and I'll recommend them to others.

    Captain Conan and Alyssa were excellent. Here is a picture of me, Captain Conan and the giant Jack we caught (we used a blackfin tuna we caught earlier in the charter). He is clearly an experienced captain with an ability to put clients on fish.

    BEST EXPERIENCE & EATS We booked our offshore fishing charter last-minute (the day before we left), it ended up being the best part of our trip. We can’t wait to come back! Captain Conan contacted us the evening prior to discuss a game plan and let us know exactly what we needed for preparation. Being our first offshore fishing adventure and having two kids, this was much appreciated. The waters were predicted to be somewhat rough with a wind presence. Conan emphasized maintaining safety as his priority despite the conditions. I can say we all felt safe for the duration of our trip. Capt. Conan and his First Mate, Alyssa, met us at the docks and helped the kids onto the boat. ‘Just One More’ was ready to go: cooler was filled with ice for our food/ drinks; bluetooth hookup to speakers for necessary offshore soundtracks; bean bags available on deck for kids to chill in. As we headed offshore, Alyssa pointed out the dolphins, sea turtles and jelly fish we saw along the way. Our offshore targets were dynamic, ranging from sailfish to permit; barracudas to snapper and barjack. We were able to hook many large fish, including barracuda (catch & release) plus a yellow barjack and many yellowtail snapper, which we were able to keep for eating. Conan processed our catch upon return to the dock, and also recommended a local restaurant to prepare our fish/ his go-to menu selections, which ended up being our best meal of the trip. The ‘Just One More’ is a safe, clean, comfortable and spacious boat. Captain Conan proved to be just as passionate as he is knowledgeable when it comes to offshore fishing. Rather than simply looking to make a dollar, he cares to really create an experience for his customers. Conan was able appeal to both the kids and the provide thrill for the adults on our trip.
