I booked a trip last week with Captain Jesse, hoping to target Goliath Groupers. The evening before the outing, Jesse was very straightforward with the current fishing conditions, as red tide was in full swing. Despite the gloomy chance of us catching zero fish, we...More

Jesse took our money, $500 for a Tarpon outing that he should have never taken us on - I found out later, that after a major storm that the Tarpon move off shore. Certainly Jesse knew this and IMO took advantage of us. He should...More
