Awesome fishing trip
Finally got out of Dodge(NYC-YUCK) In Florida April 16 2021 for a few days and went fishing with Playin Hooky and Captain David and Crew! Captain David was so informative to us about safety when on the yacht to explaining how and what to do when landing a fish! My wife and I had a Great Day on the Water with the crew! Captain David aka Chef David even cooked us fresh Mahi Mahi sandwiches in the galley- Delicious! To bad the 2 bull sharks would not bite the bait, that might have been a good thing- LOL they were big! Thanks again to Captain David & crew for a wonderful fishing experience!

The best Captain and crew
What a day !! From the first 7 minutes two fish and this kept going. Then decided to go for a bull shark, 5 minutes later a 450 LBS. The captain and crew are the some of the best I have fished with and I have fished all over the world. If I could give more than 5 stars I would. I usually don’t give reviews but he certainly deserves one. He is your captain if your fishing in Palm Beach County.
