Chris was very knowledgeable and enjoyable.  Even though the fish weren’t biting, he knew the spots and was eager for us to catch fish. Will definitely books future trips and recommend him to friends.

What a great way to spend the day. Met Capt. Chris Reeves met us bright and early at the dock, he was geared up for us and ready to go. We hit a few stops that morning and everyone was able to bring in some fish. The captian was great in assisting and guiding our first timers. Everyone is still talking about the experience so that is worth its weight in gold.

Mr. Perez, thank you for spending the day with me on the water. Your family kept me laughing while we put fish in the box. Look forward to doing it again in the future.

We did a full day of fishing with Capt. Reeves he definetly put us on the fish. We caught some good size trout and black drums. Captain was really professional and really knew what he was doing. He even gave us three hour more hours of fishing to help us tag our limits. We did not tag out but got definitely close. His servicel was comelet with cleaning of our fish. Will definitely come back and fish with him.
