Trip was awesome even though the fishing was a bit slow but he kept moving until we hit some hot areas. We caught a couple sharks as well as lots of bottom fish.

If folks that fish with us are not asking a ton of questions, we don't think they are excited about being out there. We encourage folks to ask away. Thanks for telling the Trip advisor community about Dream Catcher Charters.
