Our fourth charter with a new captain ( to us) and double digit overall. In a word, perfect. My son(13) and I went out for a back bay trip and came away smiling and happy. While anyone who understands fishing understands that even the pros can be shut out depending on the conditions, captain Mitch did EVERYTHING in his power to ensure that we reeled in some great fish, and we did! A slow start due to a less than ideal tide led to snook, snapper, black drum, trout, and jack all reeled in, due in no small part to Mitch's determination, knowledge and hard work. He literally pole pushed through endless mangroves until we found productive holes. Upon landing a nice black drum we drifted away from the spot and I asked to if we could give it another shot. Mitch showed no bruised ego, after all he is the captain with 10 years on these waters, and said "why not" to a northern guy with no idea. And we were rewarded with 2 more drum! Thanks for giving it a shot Mitch! Mitch is professional, personable, accommodating and thorough. He handled my son's endless questions and non stop talking with patience and consideration. What a great guy and a great experience! He even left me with the black drum slaying jig head so I could keep the magic juju going for the remainder of the vacation. Give captain Mitch and Island Anglers a try - you will not be disappointed! Just don't blame him if you don't catch fish because it will NOT be through lack of effort on his part. Or any other errors of omission. Remember, it is called fishing not catching and sometimes they just won't bite. Not today, however! When I return to Marco, I will look up this fine captain once again!
