Had a great fishing trip today. Captain Milton was great! Everyone had a great time! Never been fishing like this before, barely a minute before a fish to hit your line! Just catching! Was lots of fun and reasonably priced! Definitely recommended!

We did 4 hours near shore. About 9 miles out. Could barely see the shore. Was a great spot. Cost us about $550, that price does not include gratuity. Gratuity is separate. Was a reasonable price in my opinion.
