Caught a whole mess of kingfish mackeral and a couple large muttons. Captain got us on the fish and helped out with tackle. His helper was awesome even when we had multiple fish up at the boat.

Had a great full day charter with Capt. Jon and 1st mate, experienced fisherman Ed! Started out on some skipjack tuna to warm up and get our bearings and then Capt put us on the Dolphin. Even had a Wahoo on the line. Great time and we pulled in an awesome 35lb Bull. Definitely will be using Drop Back Charters... More

It was instantanious excitement!!!! We... More
