54lbs of Red Snapper!
Captain Bob is quiet and stayed up top making sure he kept us over the fish. Mr. Jimmy was wonderful, worked his tail off keeping us baited and coaching us on how to catch snapper. Every single one of us (7 total) were inexperienced so he had his work cut out for him! We had a great time and came very close to limiting out on red snapper (really did if you take into account the little one wasn’t really fishing!). I recommend this charter any time!
