Capt.  William was knowledgable of the local conditions and put us on fish. Mother Nature cooperated with a beautiful, wind free morning and we had a fabulous time. William worked with my 11 YO daughter and in the end, she out fished me and my father combined. He understood what was most important and delivered in spades.
