This was my wife's and my first fishing trip together and we enjoyed the helpful crew of Justin and Kono who helped us with baiting our hooks and landing our catches. 'Fuzzy' also helped with advice on holding the rod and reeling in our catch which made us more successful in catching the Amberjack and Shark we caught. All in all an experience I'd repeat but with trying the Laguna Madre trip next time.

Booked 8hr off-shore trip 7-31-12, about an hour out we started fishing for sharks behind shrimp boats, we limited out and stated fish for king fish and did so so (about 5 landed)
after that we bottom fished for grouper but we caught the biggest red snapper and amberjack i have seen (i fish the pan handle of Florida all the time) but they are out of season
Capt. Patrick and his crew were great with everyone (kids included)
i will come back for Red Snapper!

I've fished in the Laguna Madre before on other charters, but I have to say that Captain Murphy's "Bottom Out Too" is one of the cleanest boats that does that itinerary. The head was operating properly, plenty of TP and hand sanitizer as there was no sink.

The equipment was first-rate. Many of the boats plying the Laguna have terrible rods, but the ones on "Bottom Out Too" were almost new and appeared to be made to Murphy's specifications as they bore his name.

The crew were delightful, extremely personable and very helpful. I enjoyed their cheerful attention.

I am very picky about which company I choose to fish with as I enjoy the experience of being out on the water on a boat as much as I do catching fish. This company filled both needs and did it quite well.
