We spent the morning out on the Papa Kees. There were 2 couples, with only 1 person having any real fishing experience. The deckhands Danny and Antonio were very helpful, patient and kept us entertained!! We didn't catch any large fish but the guys definitely worked to get us catching fish. We had a blast and it was definitely a... More
