We spent almost a full day with Captain Henry and his mate Billy out of the Marina at Pirate’s Cove in Stuart, FL. To start with the boat Sunday is a perfect yacht for this type of fishing. It is a custom built boat and is maintained in impeccable shape. Henry has been a charter captain for over 30 years and knows his craft. There were 5 of us who chartered the boat as part of a business trip and we sure picked the right guy to go with. He is very knowledgeable and is happy to share stories fishing strategy and his overall experiences. Fun guy to talk to.
The boat, Sunday, is set up perfectly for the charter. It has a big fly bridge that can accommodate everyone in your party without being cramped.
Billy his mate worked nonstop from the time we left the dock until well after we returned. He set up the lines re-rigged the bait and kept fishing for us the entire time. Can’t say enough great things about him. We caught several Mahi’s and over a dozen Black fin tuna. We caught so many we started letting then go. We saw one small sail fish but it hit the bait but we couldn’t hook him. It was exciting none the less.
When we returned to the dock Billy filleted each fish with precision making sure the bones and bloody meat were all removed. He bagged them up into 4 separate gallon bags for our short ride back to the condo.
If you want to go fishing in the Stuart area, Captain Henry and the Sunday are the only way to go!
