Poorly managed trip. To many idiot fishermen spoiling the trip and fishing for others. The crew felt it was better to piss off the people who wanted to fish rather than loud mouths who tangled up the people who wanted to fish. Been on this...More

We have great fishfinders on board, and mark them but sometimes they just won't eat. We are glad you were able to use the groupon, cut the cost and have an enjoyable time. Fishing is a wonderful sport, great family time.
