We booked with Captain West, but he was too busy to take us out personally and he sent us out with his buddy with a boat. (not necessarily a guide). We expected more of a guided trip for $500. Capt. West states in his profile: "Capt. West knows the best spots to fish in any month of the year." Boats around us were bringing in quite a few fish, but were fishing with live bait. We were only given ONE color of plastic bait, that didn't produce. When I asked about using other colors to see what else the fish might like, he got pretty upset. I'm not too proud to admit defeat and get live bait, or at least change color plastic. I really expected an offer of a discounted trip, but nothing transpired. Very disappointed.
