Due to some really iffy weather we had to cancel a scheduled trip.  Captain Wimmer was awesome about it and said he didn’t want to take us out unless he was sure we could have a good time.  I’ve seen and heard of many guys who would have taken you out, taken your money and spent three hours getting rained on and tossed around with nothing to show for it.  Not these guys, we canceled the night before and they didn’t take our deposit or anything.  Sorry I didn’t get to fish with them but I thought that was a class act.
