BCC was beyond expectations. Capt. Tony and Capt. Joel were more like old friends. Couldn’t ask for more, except maybe more trout to cooperate.  Hahaha
Very satisfied with this trip. Will be back.

The day started off rainy but we had the option of going anyway. Capatain Nick found us a nice place to fish. We caught 5 fish per person within an hour and it was over just like that. Liked the experience just thought it was going to be a true half day. Didn’t even need to bring snacks or water but I’m not a fisher and I was able to get some catches pretty easy. Just thought there would be more to it. Felt kind of silly spending $400 for an hour and a half.
