Captain Mike and first mate Dan were especially friendly and made us feel like we were getting special treatment. From their willingness to schedule us at the last minute, patiently showing my 10 and 13 year old boys how to cast and reel the rods, showing us why we were fishing where we were based on the fish finder, and offering to take us to find other fish after they sensed we had caught enough Spanish Mackerel, sting rays and Goliath Groupers. Mike had us patiently wait at the beginning of the trip while we trolled by shore to catch bait fish, which later proved brilliant with the fish nearly jumping into our boat after the bait fish at the sunken reef. It was interesting to observe the boats of competitor charters nearby who seemingly weren't catching fish like we were, had no seats other than the boat walls, and were packed full of anglers that clearly would be a problem if anyone caught anything of decent size. Later, they took us to catch tarpon to an area where we saw more tarpon rolling than I would ever have expected to see in any area of ocean. Although we didn't catch any, we certainly had bites and simply ran out of time, even though captain Mike waited way longer than he needed to trying to get us to catch one. On the trip back, he "mysteriously" positioned the boys facing backwards and they were delighted as Mike varied the boat speed to lure dolphins to swim along side the boat, riding in our wake. What an unbelievably enjoyable trip. Thanks Mike and Dan, you can be sure we'll be back and will highly recommend Ms.B.Haven charters to our friends.
