Liked the story Tony, those top water snapper are fun aren't they?
I learned the hard way that Chalio is the best in Maz., a very similar thing happened 4-5 years ago as happened to Tony; 3 of us were fishing with another skipper within talking distance of Chalio & his clients, watching him boat 6-8 fish to our one or two convinced me that if I am paying anyone in Maz. to take me fishing it will be Chalio. I have sung his praises for a couple years now & looks like the "other fisherman" on the site is now hooked.
If he is not available I will sit on the dock & wait for him to make room for me.
I will be fishing with him when we return to Maz. next Dec.
