Capt. Charlie was very pleasant company and nothing was too much trouble.
We did catch a few fish and our target species too, all bar the trout.
We have fished the area many times from beach and boat and in hindsight maybe this charter is more suited to less experienced anglers as we felt we could have worked slightly harder to up our catch rate.
That said, its a good day afloat and felt safe and comfortable.

It was a great day to be on the water.  Catching a bunch of fish was a wonderful added bonus.
Captain Charlie is very knowledgeable about what is biting, on what and where.
