Deckhand Jake was so great with our little. He’s addicted to fishing now thanks to him. Jake knew his stuff and was the perfect hand for our trip. Captain Bill was so friendly and made everything a great. Landed some great fish. Will definitely do it again!

Was disappointed in the fish we caught but the condition of the boat was more disappointing.  Livewell didn’t work and all our bait fish died.  Never any information about safety.  The deck hand, Jake, worked hard but we never found good fishing hole.

Hi Robert,

I apologize that you did not receive the experience you were looking for. Unfortunately unforseen circumstances happen and the livewell dying during the trip was one of those. The fishing spots are also hit or miss as fishing is unpredictable and its not easy when there are sick guests. Again, we deeply apologize for the dissapointing trip.
