Rick was great to have aboard, he became a regular costumer after the 1st trip he took with 2 yrs ago. Now he comes out at least 2-3 times a month.
This day was non stop action from the 1st cast.

We chartered Captain Tom for a 30th birthday fishing trip, and it was a great time.  Everyone in my group was inexperienced, and Captain Tom took the time to show all of us how to properly fish for Fluke/Flounder.  He and his first mate Cameron were very attentive and kept us on the fish the whole day.  The 7 hour trip flew by, and by the end we had caught 40+ Flounder (16 keepers), which we all thought was great for first-time anglers.  We were never waiting too long to catch something and at one point all 5 of us had a fish-on.  Captain Tom and Cam cleaned, skinned and filleted our catch for us and later that night we fried up the best Flounder any of us had had.  Overall it was a great experience and we would definitely charter Captain Tom again!
