    Great Captain, great Mate, great boat and great time! Captain Steve got us on the Mahi and slayed em! Full limit on Mahi and a couple of barracuda. We had one sailfish come look but not for lack of trying! Jeff knows his stuff and never stopped working and made sure we were fishing the entire time. We completed our limit by landing all three of a triple set. I have fished my whole life and this was a fantastic trip. Highly recommend the Sea-clusion and Captain Steve.

    We had a great time on our first family fishing trip. We brought enthusiasm, and very little experience. John was a great teacher for all of us, and took us to several good spots in Lake Passage. We caught shark, black grouper and enough snapper to feast on for days. The fine folks at Hurricane Hole cooked it up for us and it was amazing!! We would definitely book another trip with John!!
