Really just wanted to shout out Mariano and Tony Mony. Great Captain and 1st Mate that put my husband on his dream fish. It was a 7 hour trip that stayed in the bay. Thanksgiving time is a good time of year for most fish.

Booked an 8 hr fishing trip on the Dora, their fastest boat. After we left the marina we were told only 1 engine was working. Never were able to find any fish due to limited speed of boat. Definitely would NOT recommend.More
