The overall experience was only average. When we booked, we understood that we would leave at 6:00 and fish until 12:00. At the captain’s suggestion we left at 7:30. We fished two locations and caught 5 fish between 8:15 and 10:45. Others that left earlier caught more.

My wife had never fished before and I asked that she be given adequate pointers to assure an enjoyable experience. The pointers basically consisted of “if you catch a fish, crank this handle”.

The boat was “bare bones” with limited seating and no other accommodations. We were advised to bring our own snacks and we did. Fortunately we brought a couple of bottles of water since the captain did not have any water or ice for customers, only for herself.

Lets not mention YOU requested to come in early, because it was to HOT ,YOU informed me that it was to better to leave later as yall where older and worried about getting up that early.

Lets not mention how many fished were missed, or the fact your wife and yourself could not adequetly reel in a slot sized trout with out help.

Lets not mention everything i provide was told to you numerous of time and also included in the description of the trip per Fishing Booker that YOU CONFIRMED AND BOOKED!

Lets not mention the fact my boats description is in the listing for my business that you agreed to book.

Lets not mention the simple fact your wife did not want to be their and stated you forced her to go!!

Let not forget about what really happened

Jen did a great job of getting right to the fish and was diligent about moving when they weren’t biting to find a spot where they were.  Thanks again.
