I would like to thank God for getting me in touch with Super Strike Charters and Captains Andre Boudreau and Troy Wetzel with Louisiana Fishing Charters. I can’t say enough great things about these charters and people. I contacted Super Strike Charters and attempted to schedule a deep sea fishing trip for June 21. They told me they didn’t have any openings. I explained the situation. My cousin Camie lost her husband to a heart attack 19 months ago. Camie and the kids Steven (17) and Denise (12) have had few ups and mostly downs since Dustin, their dad, passed away. Dustin had promised the kids he would take them deep sea fishing. Due to his untimely passing that was no longer possible. The family was struggling and the kids were having a very difficult time dealing with their situation. GOD spoke and said take them fishing. The 21 was the only weekend Camie could take off being a single parent with a very new job. SO I contacted Super Strike Charters. He said we will make this happ...
