Half Day Trip (PM)
After several failed attempts to get out when we were here in Spring due to high winds we finally got out with the Bottoms Up crew during our October trip to NPR. We had a great day of fishing and Captain Jeremy kept us on fish all afternoon. The 6 of us brought in around 70 fish, mainly Grey Snapper, and released around 30 more of the smaller fish. Jeremy and Noah were extremely helpful to bait hooks and unhooking the fish. We had a great meal of fish tacos and left the bulk of the filets with a relative who lives in NPR. Strongly recommend these guys!

Full Day Trip
We went on a full day excursion with Captain Carlos and Jeremy. We were on fish as soon as we hit our first stop. Captain kept us on fish all day. He and Jeremy were so fun and informative. If a fish cut the hook, there was immediately another pole in our hands while they tied a new one on. If you were out of bait, they were right there to put on new bait. They knew exactly where to go and how to position the boat. Captain Carlos also recommended a great restaurant that cooked our fresh catch for us! It was such an amazing experience with great tunes and great guys. We definitely recommend any length trip with Bottoms Up Fishing Excursions!

6 Hour Coral Bottom Fishing Trip
The odds were kind of against us with hot weather and the red tide, but the captain kept us on fish and we had a great time. We did the 6 hour daytime excursion and probably caught 70+ fish including grey snapper, mangrove snapper, gag grouper, red grouper, and several miscellaneous fish. First mate was great, kept our lines baited, and filleted our fish at the end. I plan on going again within the next couple of years.
