We had an excellent day with Captain John and Mate Butch! Our 15, 13, and 11-year-old kids joined us for a morning adventure at sea, and it was beautiful! We extended our 3-hour trip to 4 hours, which was perfect for our kids, though it might be a bit long for younger children. The boat was excellent, clean, and comfortably fit all of us. We caught over 20 Spanish mackerel, 2 lizard fish, and 2 sharks! We managed 4-5 lines at a time, and the equipment was in great condition and worked perfectly. Despite some lulls, there were moments when multiple lines were popping simultaneously. Reeling in a shark was the ultimate thrill! We highly recommend Captain John, Butch, and Fired Up – 10/10!
