Capt. John Vann took our family out for a terrific 5-hour fishing trip! We caught snapper, trigger, and mackerel! And Capt. John caught a huge cobia! He is knowledgeable and friendly. He has a nice boat and good equipment to find the fish. Our family had great time and we definitely want to do this again!

If you're looking for a top notch boat, equipment, experience, and just all out good time- Give Captain John Vann a call. This was my sons first time fishing PCB and thanks to Capt. John it will be an experience we will never forget. My son is already asking when we can book a return trip. Thanks Captain John!
