They were great, the whole boat caught Kingfish and we also caught a 90 inch hammerhead. Our shark catch was the biggest fish of our tournament!!

I attended my company charity fishing event this year for the first time, Capt David and his First Mate David were outstanding, we caught 5 Kings, then used the 2 smaller ones to catch a Hammerhead, the Happy Day Today boat and crew made my day a happy one, our shark was the biggest fish of the day.

We had a great time on this fishing trip! The captain and crew were so nice and taught us a lot about the ship and equipment. We ended up catching a bull shark which was absolutely insane and amazing! So thankful for this experience and their help!

Captain David and Mate Dave did a great job showing us an awesome time. Frist time I saw kite fishing. Highlight of the day was landing a 104 inch, 400lb hammerhead shark. The crew tagged this beast and then released it. I'm a full time residence of the area. You will not find a better crew and boat.
