Anthony it was a pleasure having you and you dad out on the boat. We didn't kill it but I think we did well for the conditions that day. Very windy and a very slow moving tide. I hope you enjoyed the fresh trout for dinner. Thank you for hiring me and thank you very much for taking the time... More

He had already launched the boat and caught fresh live bait. We quickly boarded and set off to fish for spotted sea trout, snook, and red drum. He took us to... More
