Captain Johnny,
HI there, this is Cheryl from Pensacola. We fished with you on your boat a few weeks ago and just wanted to say thanks. My boyfriend and I both had a great time and the picture of the Permit came out really great, I'll send you a copy in the e-mail. We hope to visit Key West soon, we would love another trip on the flats, again, thanks.


Capt. Paul,
Hi, my husband and I came to Key West a few weeks ago on the cruise ship 'Enchantment of the Seas'. We just wanted to drop a line to say that we had a fabulous time on our charter. Capt. Johnny Irwin was our captain and what a nice guy. All we wanted was to catch was a few fish, just bend a rod and enjoy the afternoon. Never did we expect to hook and land a 150lb. Tarpon! It took us over an hour and my husband says he has never even seen a fish so big. Our fishing trip was the highlight of our vacation, thanks a million...
