We had a very good fishing day. The food in the galley was very good and the deck hands were very helpful.

I love deep sea fishing I had the greatest day fishing on the Freelance a couple of weeks ago. We caught so many good sized calico and sand bass. The captain was very informative and did his best to amkes ure we all had a great experience (thank you Rusty). The deck hands are always so helpful and when everyone was pulling in fish at once, event he galley chef was helping people with their catch, giving pointers and ensuring everyone had the best experience. Awesome experience!!!
