Captain Bill was good at getting us to fish. We caught a ton of Jack, Mackerel, Snook, Catfish, and a grouper. He was well educated on the area but could have been more personable. Not recommended for those with kids. I would suggest another captain.

I am sorry that you did not enjoy your fishing excursion. It can been frustrating for a captain, as well as the party fishing, when there are hits on the line and the customer has repeated opportunities to catch fish without reeling them in. Every...More
