I have been fishing in this bay since the late 80’s and will recommend Taft to anyone looking for a great day of fishing. He is among a short list of elite charter captains in the area that know the waters and work hard for their clients. Even if he’s booked I suggest you give him a call, he can refer you to one of the right boats to ensure a great day.
