TEN

Captain Kirk and his mate Dillon are a first class , world class out fit. After the 10th or 11th fish was boated, someone exclaimed ” World Class” I think this an apt description and the only reason that I will delay sending in my review of these tournament caliber fishing Pro’s is to buy time and in sure that we are able to reserve a day in August before the Black Label is booked up.
I entitled my review TEN as these gent’s and there gear are ten out of ten. OH and the on board sound system is off the charts.
