First, the captain and mate were friendly and courteous. We booked a six hour trip for $1100 to go deep sea fishing. What was not communicated is that almost four hours of our trip was traveling to or fishing spot and back to the marina. So our total fishing time was like 2 hours and fifteen minutes. Captain Bill keeps his boat at Adventureland Marina which is thirty minutes from the inlet. There are a lot of boats moored at Ponce Inlet which saves an hour of travel time to same spots. Second, Captain Bill did get us into the fish. We caught over thirty fish but they were all the same. Red Snapper which you are not allowed to keep. We moved once but never changed presentation of bait or fishing style. Now I am no deep sea fishing person but I do a lot of fresh water fishing. If I am catching northern and don't want to I simply change lure and many times how I present the lure to the fish. We were never asked what kind of fish do we want, how far do we want to travel, etc. Just my two cents
