I had a wonderful experience with Angelo and Captain Mansur. Very professional. I went on a day that, by the text book, wasn’t the greatest day for fishing; however we did end up with some fish! We did inshore fishing and used three different styles. We bottom fished, trolled, and also did some casting. The team was very attentive to my fishing experience and stopped what they were doing to help with fish or snagged line. They had coolers and ice for the fish and a separate one for any drinks I brought. I went with a friend and they let us play the music that we wanted on the boat stereo system. They are very knowledgeable on where to go and move from place to place to find where the fish are. It was a neat experience and one I will definitely repeat. The boat can hold up to 4 people besides the captain and his first mate. The fishing gear and tackle were all in good shape and the boat clean and in order. On my trip I got to see a good bit of wildlife as well. A crocodile, some dolphins and turtles. Plus fish! Angelo also took pictures of the experience and sent them to me, which was neat because it’s hard to take pictures while you are fishing. This is an easy recommendation to make. If you’re interested in some fun inshore fishing. These are some great folks and you’ll have a good time.
