Captain Tom was spectacular! We spent seven hour on the water and he was gracious, EXTREMELY knowledgable about the area we fished,  punctual, his equipment was amazing since his boat was less than six months old and has every device possible to help you find the fish. We benefited from his trolling motor that served as an anchor by using GPS data. We had a great time talking about fishing and the entire environmental passion he has for making sure our kids and grandkids can still enjoy fishing in the same waters. I will book him again and again!
