For the past 10 years, we travel to Fort Lauderdale annually just to fish with Captain Brett. Every time we go out, the trip just seems to get better and better. We fished for 3 days and every day, we caught bass until we ran out of bait! Captain Brett will definitely put you on fish! Captain John's equipment is up to date and well maintained, I highly recommend!
