    No fish

    We are local and take a trip every year for my birthday with a group of guys. This is our first time on Swoop. It was a holiday, but we didn’t catch much. The captain didn’t put us over any fish, then there was a kid filleting the fish, he did a horrible job and left a ton of bones in it. So what little we got wasn’t even enough for all the guys on the trip and when we cooked it for our fish fry you had nothing but bones. Wasted trip and money, we had to stop and buy more fish on the way home for our fish fry.
