Great day on the water with Frank and Rooney! 70 miles offshore surrounded by boats and everyone kept watching us get fish after fish!!! Not to say other people were catching but I definitely felt like we were on the fish more than most. Friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and fun to spend the day with. Would definitely recommend. Cannot wait to get back out there with these guys.
Amazing fishing experience

To say Captain Frank and Anthony care is an understatement. They work hard to pull out all the stops to find fish! Not only do you get an entertaining day fishing on a great boat, but OMG the views are totally insane. Highly recommend!
