They no longer have a restaurant.... you cannot keep your fish. They take it and sell it at auction. They do not let you know this until you catch a fish. They do not ask if you want to catch and release. Chad, the captain decides to take it to auction and make extra money. This trip was booked in January of 2016 for May 2016 and no emails were sent and informing of change in company policy,......BEWARE.
