Great trip.
about 13 days ago
Captain Jason and Barney were very friendly and outgoing. We had a wonderful trip until my son and his friends became sea sick. We headed in early. I will definitely go out with The Great Escape again. I highly recommend them. Even though we came in early we brought in the biggest haul of the morning. Barney and Jason worked well together. Barney was quick and very helpful with baiting and removing the fish from our lines. Thanks for helping my family make great memories.

Jason, the Captain of "The Great Escape", welcomed us and instructed everyone on safety while making sure everyone was comfortable. Jason put us on some fish and the entire family had a great time. The deckhand, Barney, was excellent. We kept him busy but he was ready for the task. While filleting our fish, he gave us some grilling recipes. The fish tacos were great.

This was a great trip. We were all able to pull in some big fish trolling and caught enough snapper to fry for a large group at our condo. I would book them again.
