Always a fun day of fishing with Captain Chaz. Can't wait to go again. Saw sailfish and a hammerhead shark. Great to make new friends also. Live listening to fishing stories.

70.00 a person plus tip for the mate. You will have fun and catch several different species if fish. Grouper limit is 24 inches now so good luck with that. I go just to catch fish!!
