Billy & Billy, I just wanted to say thank you for such a great day on Wednesday, July 30th. It was my first experience with any type of offshore fishing and you guys surely made it awesome! I'm used to creek fishing for trout here in Pennsylvania, but catching a sailfish was one of the sweetest things I've ever done. I definitely will always remember that first big catch, but I'm sure as hell it won't be my last! I hope to make offshore fishing an annual vacation event, and with none other than TUNA FEVER. You guys were very welcoming and kind, yet also intelligent and professional. I know I speak for my whole group aboard that day (Jack Buchan's group), we had a truly amazing time and couldn't have picked a better crew than Billy & Billy! Thanks so much for making my first trip a blast! Good Luck the rest of the season & catch some big ones boys!! (P.S. I got the pictures framed already and had tuna fillets the night of the trip--Delicious!, can't wait to have the tiles)
