Excellent Trip
You know it's a good day when you have enough time Mahi to stop and do deep drops. The captain put us on the spot, two drops one came with a tile fish and one with a nice snowy grouper. He truly knows where the fish are. Took a total of 15 minutes. The captain was good to run us around several storms and keep catching fish. The mate colby was legit. Super friendly and new his stuff. We stopped for bait on the way out. He through two cast the first to target cigar minnows the second ballyhoo. The first yeided about 100+ minnows and they got about about 50 ballyhoo. Again Took about 30 minutes. No wasted time. I have been on several charter boats in the keys and this os one of the best charter boats in islamorada. To the person said me know it all. The captain has a little sarcastic humor and they must have missed that but he truly knows his stuff.

Awesome Experience!
We just had an awesome fishing experience with Captain Larry today! We have chartered boats all over the world and this ranks as definitely one of the very best! I don't agree at all with the one star review! Capt. Larry was super friendly and knowledgeable and his mate, Colby was awesome and worked nonstop. We caught a sailfish and 6 other kinds of fish and both guys were great! It was a great day, we already recommended Capt. Larry to family who are coming down In a couple months and will be booking with him our next trip to the keys.
