First time ever chartering a boat and didn’t really know what to expect but it was a wonderful experience for my husband and I. We didn’t know anything about saltwater fishing and have definitely learned some things. Captain Conlon is very knowledgeable and experienced in what he does that we were at ease the entire time on the water. We caught our limit on speckled trout before the end of our trip and that’s an A+ experience for me, he put us right on the fish! I had a lot of fun and would highly recommend him.
