I made a last-minute DJ booking and informed him about bringing my son along to introduce him to fishing. Our primary goal was to catch as many fish as possible, regardless of the species. To my delight, the DJ exceeded our expectations, and we ended up catching over 40 fish during the ¾ day trip!

Hey Cap, I just wanted to express my gratitude for the wonderful trip. There are several key reasons why I would highly recommend DJ: 1. He encouraged me to lay a track on my phone for navigation, making our journey from Chokoloskee to the fishing spots much smoother. 2. DJ was patient and accommodating with my mentally challenged brother, ensuring he could cast into the fish by getting into tight fishing spots. 3. Most importantly, he created a warm and inclusive atmosphere, making everyone feel like part of the team, including my sister. It was the first time I saw her smile in a month. Overall, it was an amazing trip!
