After reading your response I contacted your captain. He is one of the few captains that go the extra mile to carry live bait on all his trips. He checks his bait pots at 5:30 am every day before his trips. The day you booked...More

We stopped in here several times over the week stay to stock up on bait and other fishing tackle. We got great Adobe about what was biting, what to use, and some good places to drop the line in at. Everyone was very helpful.
