    Funfilled trip

    The whole trip was a lot of fun. We caught some fish and the captain did take us to some “honey holes” that had a bounty of fish waiting. The crew were helpful although we felt like they would have been more effective if wach of them would assign themselves in each four sides of the boat. There were several times we had to unhook our catch with our bare hands as there were nobody there to help us. We felt like we could have caught more of we were able to dip our bait fast enough every after each catch. Nevertheless, we had a very good time and won’t mind going back . Maybe next time we should bring our own dehooker though.
