Capt. Ruben was very knowlegdable and very accommodating. Even after hunting down bait we still received a solid 4 hour trip.

Captain Reuben was very nice and seemed very knowledgeable. We caught a variety of fish some we kept and he cleaned for us. The only concern and this is more towards children is that there is no canopy for his boat. If you do not mind being in the sun he will be a great charter.
