    Not bad

    It was ok but could’ve been a little more enthusiastic being a “kid” geared trip. My son had fun but being we’re from West Texas we don’t get to do a lot of fishing in the ocean and we didn’t feel like the guide cared too much that we were there or didn’t care too much to help us out or giving us any guidance. He barely spoke to us and the boat was extremely small, even for 5 people. If the water was any more rough it would’ve been a lot worse getting around I feel like. Like I said, it was an ok trip but not one id recommend to anyone and not one id book again.

    We caught fish!

    We signed up for this so that our kids would have a quality experience fishing in the ocean. They got that. They were able to catch a number of fish. Rodeo Joe was constantly at work baiting hooks and setting things up for us. He did great at making sure the kids were able to constantly catch fish. If you're looking for a guide who is chatty and interested in talking with you and your kids, making small talk and explaining to the kids about fishing, baiting, or taking about the fish they caught, this is not the excursion for you. Joe was friendly enough - not rude. But he said very little and did not make it a "kid friendly" experience in that respect.

    We had a good time but were disappointed when we showed up and realized it was NOT an offshore charter. We were all excited to experience offshore fishing but didn't get it. I wish I had been made aware of the difference when booking.
