Nice captain, but waves were too rough to go out that day. Did not realize that bait was not included in price. We spent most of the fishing time catching bait. Never caught a fish before we asked to come in.

This was our very first fishing experience and Captain Steve was all that we had hoped for and more. From catching the live bait to catching the bigger fish, Captain Steve made us feel like professionals with his expertise and knowledge. We had a great time and will definitely book with him again.
