We had great weather , a great Captain and first mate. We caught over 5 species and brought about 25 fish to the dock. We also threw back about 30 Grunts which were great eating. Then, we went to the Salt Cracker restaurant where they prepared our fish for us . We chose blackened and fried along with cole slaw and fries. What a great experience for a Father & Son.

What they say about us
We took an 8 hour trip with Captain Kevin and first mate Peyton this week and it was unbelievable. They were so attentive, friendly and helpful along with constantly having us on fish! We caught well over 120 fish with 3 people. I could not recommend them more. They’re extremely hardworking and all over every request. For an amazing fishing experience, book Kevin & Peyton. You will be thrilled!
By the way, have their restaurant Saltcracker Fish Camp cook your catch for dinner. It was great!
