Just went out this past Thursday. Well it was great, rough conditions but overall a beautiful day. We caught our limit of Red Snapper. Very friendly and enjoyed the trip. Booked for 6 hours and back in 3-4 with limit. Still had to pay for the full six hours. Felt so so on that part. We still would of paid the 5 plus tip. Just thought we could of gotten a little break considering we were back so quick. Maybe especially evening trip if you book 5 hr you can have the option to add hr if needed. But do not let this discourage we loved the trip and will book with him again. Memories that will last forever. Thank you and see you next time.

We went out with Get the Gaff and it was so fun. It is private so you go out with your friends and or family only. It is very laid back. We started the morning catching bait then used the bait we caught. We caught 3 Spanish Mackerel and two king mackerels. So much fun, I definitely recommend going out with Get the Gaff.
