After booking a “5 hour Bottom Fishing with Crabbing” excursion. We arrived at the docks around 5AM and boarded our fishing boat the Sunrise, we met the captain: Craig Calkins and his deckhand, they provided us with a quick safety and procedural briefing and then we headed out to sea.
While underway to our fishing location the deckhand prepared the crabbing pots and tossed them overboard to soak. We shortly arrived at the reef and put our lines in the water. “FISH ON” my son yelled, almost immediately, and that set the stage for the rest of our fishing trip. We had a great day of fishing, all three of us limited out on Sea Bass in short order. Once everyone had their limit of fish we started the journey back to our crab pots. As the crab pots came on board we could see that the crabbing had been just as good the fishing!
Tradewinds Charters provided us with an amazing fishing trip that we fully enjoyed.
