"The excitement when landing any species of fish is indescribable. And seeing someone else land their dream fish cannot make you feel any better. " Captain Tyler has been fishing for as long as he remembers since he was 5 years old. He's spent the past 5 years honing and perfecting his angling skills. Not only has he been a first mate and learned all the tricks of the trade but he's won two freshwater tournaments as well! Capt. Tyler and his crew work hard on making sure trips with him are as fun as possible and they love teaching people whatever they want to learn.
