My complements to Captain Mike and deck hand Jack. The boat was clean and well equipped with the proper rods. Although the fishing was a little slow they did all that was possible to find fish. We caught a couple of nice Mahi Mahi. The best for myself was fishing tuna on a light rod. Never done it but will do it again. Fish in many places and have to say that Captain Mike and Jack were first class and would ship out with them anywhere . Thanks Start Me Up and Lili Crawford for her recommendation.
