Awesome day fishing!!! Captain Billy is absolutely the best captain and Shane did such an amazing job too!! We couldn't have asked for a better day and they keep the fish rolling. I will only use the Linda V when I'm in key west!

Billy and Shane were great. Put us on some good dolphin and taught us a lot in the process. Although not the best time of year to fish, they were able to fill up our cooler.
