Ryan, It was a real pleasure having you guys on the Bushwacker and watching you get better each day at hooking your own fish. I look forward to seeing you again soon.

I'm glad that you guys had a great trip. Capt. Lee is the only one that I trust with my boat and my clients when I am not in Costa Rica. He always does a great job. Good luck Thursday.

The fish I caught were so cool. It wasn’t a great day to go fishing though. We caught a sailfish and a mahi-mahi. The sailfish was super cool. I definitely would go on this charter again.

Thanks for fishing with us CC. I hope that you enjoyed the mahi for dinner. You guys come back and see us again soon. I'm sure that the fishing will be better next time and you can catch some more of those cool sailfish.

Captain Skeet and his crew provided three of us with a great 1/2 day of Inshore Fishing. Despite relatively poor fishing water (which he was acknowledged a couple days prior) he found us fish to catch and eat. He is very straight forward and honest....More
