Booking again! We had a blast in some tough fishing conditions (between fronts with a strong east wind) but Capt. Mark and his Mate Drew kept us on fish all day. Great guys and very knowledgeable!

Highly recommend booking a trip with them!

Great trip! Captain Marc and Drew really knew their stuff and went out of their way to make sure we had a great trip and came back with plenty of fish! They also took some time to recommend a couple of different ways to prepare the fish.

Will definitely be back next year!

Oh man! First off Mark and Drew are great. Funny good old boys! Had an absolute blast both times now! If you want to catch fish there is a reason you go with these guys! They know where the fish are all day!

Just wore out the Spanish mackerel!!!

They did everything that they could possibly have done to put me on a big fish and they did. They are both very experienced and know what they are doing.  I would 100% recommend everyone to take a trip with Bad Habit Sportfishing.

I had a blast with Marc and Drew!
