We had a great time with Captain Al and deckhand Cody. We caught a large variety of fish and enjoyed every minute of the trip. We have been on multiple fishing charters and this was by far the best one we have been on. Captain Al and Cody put us on the meat and we had a blast.

Great experience with a very seasoned captain and 1st mate. Exceeded expectations in all ways; caught our share because captain Al knew just where the fish were biting. Spacious air conditioned cabin to cool off and take a break in between the action. 1st mate Joe was attentive and helpful in all ways. ill choose Fish Trap Charters next time.
