Had a great time fishing with Capt Andy. He was knowledgeable and made sure it was a successful trip. We ended up coming back a little early due to impending storm but we still caught enough for dinner. Would definitely book with him again!

We opted for a shorter inshore trip due to taking my 6 year old grandson. He loved every minute of it - the faster the boat went the better. While the snappers weren't biting, we had fun with the mackerel. The captain was fun and...More
